Sparp Objects is not as sharp-tongued as Flynn's later novels
le 11 septembre 2013
Gillian Flynn's début novel is a story in search of a voice. While the plot is wonderfully dark and twisted and punctuated with truly surprising twists, her heroine is a cub reporter with a cub reporter's voice: unsteady, occasionally brilliant, sometimes clumsy. It is a fascinating read, though, especially for those who have read Dark Places and Gone Girl, as the reader can contemplate the novelist's literary growth from Sharp Objects to her later work. I would have put four stars, but that notation means that I "adored" the book. I liked it very much; adoration came with Gone Girl.
