Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I'm probably in the minority in my assessment of Sharp Objects. It's super popular and rightfully so, I guess. The twists and reveals were Gillian-Flynn-perfect, as always. Characters were full, both in the best and worst ways.
I just couldn't stand the overwhelming darkness of Camille. It never let up. The plot was thrilling but also depressing in a way I found it hard to see past. For most fans of this author, Sharp Objects only cements their loyalty. I get it, it's absolutely deserved, so long as you can pull yourself out from the dreariness of Camille's thoughts. I just couldn't.
