    Inhaltsangabe

    WICKED above her hipbone, GIRL across her heart
    Words are like a road map to reporter Camille Preaker's troubled past. Fresh from a brief stay at a psychiatric hospital, Camille's first assignment from the second-rate daily paper where she works brings her reluctantly back to her hometown to cover the murders of two preteen girls.

    NASTY on her kneecap, BABYDOLL on her leg
    Since she left town eight years ago, Camille has hardly spoken to her neurotic, hypochondriac mother or to the half-sister she barely knows: a beautiful 13-year-old with an eerie grip on the town. Now, installed again in her family's Victorian mansion, Camille is haunted by the childhood tragedy she has spent her whole life trying to cut from her memory.

    HARMFUL on her wrist, WHORE on her ankle
    As Camille works to uncover the truth about these violent crimes, she finds herself identifying with the young victims a bit too strongly. Clues keep leading to dead ends, forcing Camille to unravel the psychological puzzle of her own past to get at the story. Dogged by her own demons, she will have to confront what happened to her years before if she wants to survive this homecoming.

    With its taut, well-crafted writing, Sharp Objects is addictive, haunting, and unforgettable.

    Kritikerstimmen

    "A witty, stylish, and compelling debut. A real winner." (Harlan Coben)

    "Flynn delivers a great whodunit.... Piercingly effective and genuinely terrifying." (Kirkus Reviews)

    "To say this is a terrific debut novel is really too mild. I haven't read such a relentlessly creepy family saga since John Farris' All Heads Turn as the Hunt Goes By, and that was 30 years ago, give or take. Sharp Objects isn't one of those scare-and-retreat books; its effect is cumulative. I found myself dreading the last 30 pages or so but was helpless to stop turning them. Then, after the lights were out, the story just stayed there in my head, coiled and hissing, like a snake in a cave. An admirably nasty piece of work, elevated by sharp writing and sharper insights." (Stephen King)

    Fantastic!

    An absolutely striking thriller by Gillin Flynn that can definitely keep up with Gone Girl, even if this one is much more deeply disturbing.
    As with her other works, the characters are all very faceted and realistic and the protagonist is unique and lovable in her own way.
    I enjoyed this book thoroughly and could hardly stop listening to it.
    Ann Marie Lee brought it alive so soothingly and created a vibrant image of the setting in my mind.
    I would absolutely recommend this!

    Brilliant story

    This is my second book from Gillian Flynn and it's as brilliant as "Gone Girl". She knows how put goose bumps on her readers. Her stories are deliberate, like an extremly well planned project. The way she tells them make you think "it's frightening that people could be like that".
    I hope she keeps going on like that.

    Great story

    I was amazed by the dark family story that slowly revealed. The speaker was really good for the main character and also for men‘s voices - other women‘s voices though were, unfortunately, a bit annoying. Still a very good audio book!!

    Traurig, wie kaputte Menschen andere kaputt machen

    Super spannend und letztlich noch mit überraschender, wenn auch trauriger Wende. Total empfehlenswert.
    Hauptperson wird gut herausgearbeitet und der Plott ist völlig stimmig.

    Alright

    Sharp Objects wasn't as good as other Gillian Flynn novels. I was disturbed by all the sexualisation of little girls.

    Impredecible y a la vez predecible.

    Es una buena historia con tintes psicólogicos acerca de la relación entre madres e hijas. La narradora hizo un excelente trabajo con el cambio de voces, lo que hace aún más entretenida la historia.

    Disturbing but so good!

    Wow, I’m still trying to process what I’ve just listened to. I hadn’t been a fan of Gillian Flynn‘s Gone Girl, but was intrigued since I’ve started to watch the HBO show and liked it. The story is really disturbing but so well told - and narrated (the narrator also did The woman in the window by A.J. Finn - and her performance is amazing). I loved it! Wondering how anyone can come up with such a story?!

    I expected so much more

    The storyline is good and was read really well but I feel like there is not enough suspense. There are some creepy stuff happening in this book but nothing that left me in awe. I had an idea quite early on who was guilty and though it was still exciting to listen to at the end, I have to admit I was a bit disappointed. I just expected so much more because of the way the book was described and because of the other book "Gone girl". My verdict, buy and read it if you're a fan but it's not one of the best books I have ever read.

    Spannend, aber nicht perfekt...

    Die Stimme der Sprecherin ist mir persönlich zu einschläfernd.. Konnte kaum Emotionen vernehmen. Die Story ist gut, wenn auch durchschaubar. Ich mag verkorkste Charaktere einfach, und auch in diesem Buch war mir die Hauptfigur sympathisch. An und für sich kein schlechtes Hörbuch, allerdings gefielen mir “The Chemist“ oder “Girl on the Train“ einfach besser.
