Dark Places Review

Dark Places by Gillian Flynn
4 Stars
I picked this book up a couple of months ago because my mother was desperate to see the movie and I obviously had to read the book first. Starting off, I really wasn't that into it and I kept putting it down for days and sometimes weeks. I actually found myself only enjoying the "Ben" chapters for most of the book. It wasn't until the last 150 pages or so that I began to enjoy every perspective as the story unraveled. The book felt a tad slow to me for the most part, only speeding up towards the end and boy did I need to know what was going to happen next. I felt the same way while reading Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn so I think that if you enjoyed the writing style there, then you'll enjoy it in this novel as well. I don't want to give anything away, but this one took me by surprise. I actually had no idea who actually committed the murders. If you haven't read the synopsis, I recommend not reading it. I personally feel that it gives too much away and you should go in blind. Definitely a 4 star read and I hope to read her other novel, Sharp Objects. Have any of you read Dark Places or seen the movie? Do you feel they did a good job representing the novel? I'd love to hear your thoughts and discuss them with you.
Xoxo,
Gabriella
