Sharp Objects ~ Gillian Flynn

 *** LIKE ***

Sharp characters, sharp language
Dark and nasty ... avoid small towns

So glad that I was introduced to Gillian Flynn through Gone Girl.  This one didn't do it for me ... maybe because I was on to the perp half way through so the ending was no surprise.  Or maybe because I felt it wallowed a little in the middle just padding things out which was odd because I felt that the ending was far too rushed.  In general I felt it was a little overwritten.

I do think that Flynn does wonderful "nasty" ... both plot twists and characters ... and I love the fact that she doesn't shy away from flawed, and rather unlikable, very dysfunctional, female characters.
