The movie: amazing. The book: better.
I loved reading from both the perspectives of Nick and Amy. At no point was I not entertained. This book was amazing and I highly recommend it. The mystery and the trickery is so well written.
After reading this book, Gillian Flynn has become one of my favorite authors. I've never been a fan of horror, but the way Flynn weaves stories together is so interesting and unique, that I can't help but want to read more stories within the horror/mystery genre.
If I still had cable, then I'd have watched the HBO series adaptation by now, but alas, paying for cable is wasteful when you can find everything on the internet.
This book was shocking in a good way, but I would caution anyone who has suicidal thoughts or self-harm not to read this. The main character neglects her body in a horrifying way that might be too much for some readers.
Camille Preaker is a journalist trying to make a better life for herself in Chicago, away from the home town that reminds her of the death of her sister Marian at a very young age. Camille returns home to chase the story of a murdered girl, and finds out a lot about herself and her family in the process.
Can I just say, Charlize Theron wasn't right for the role in the movie adaptation. Libby Day is supposed to be a very small, very angry red head (yes, I'm aware that she dyes her hair blond in the book), and Charlize is all legs (and her anger doesn't convince me.)
Dark places was, well, dark. The protagonist Libby Day is really going through it you guys. When she was a kid, her whole family was murdered, and her teenage brother was convicted. This story is filled with crazy twists and turns, and I could have never guessed what really happened that day when Libby became the sole survivor of the Kinnakee Massacre .
