Sharp Objects



Fresh from a brief stay at a psych hospital, reporter Camille Preaker faces a troubling assignment: she must return to her tiny hometown to cover the murders of two preteen girls. For years, Camille has hardly spoken to her neurotic, hypochondriac mother or to the half-sister she barely knows: a beautiful thirteen-year-old with an eerie grip on the town. Now, installed in her old bedroom in her family's Victorian mansion, Camille finds herself identifying with the young victims—a bit too strongly. Dogged by her own demons, she must unravel the psychological puzzle of her own past if she wants to get the story—and survive this homecoming.

Hard to put down5 star

A great read. Suspenseful and keeps you guessing till the end. Full of surprises, well written, great character development. 55


A Page-Turner!!!5 star

I watched the first season of Sharp Objects on HBO, and was immediately hooked by the plot. I needed answers and decided to purchase the book— I was not disappointed. This is the kind of book that you will make time for because you will not want to put it down. I don’t want to spoil the plot; thus, I will spare details, other than that Flynn is the queen of plot twists. **This book may not be appropriate for readers who are prone to substance abuse and self-harm. 55

very sharp indeed5 star

Dark, spooky, infuriating, creepy. I loved it. The characters are very real if a bit overdone but it doesn’t take away from the story. Pretty much each line gets under your skin...and I read several paragraphs over to savor the the full craziness of this family. Enjoy! 55


Wow. Yes!!!!!5 star
