    Gillian Flynn is a master at writing about horrible people who do horrible, awful things. She's dark, gory, macabre, and you'll have a tough time finding any likable characters here....but she has quickly become one of my favourite authors. The book itself is gruesome and quite gory in places....with bullying, molestation, brutal killings, satanic worshiping, drugs, and sex....and some scenes are so descriptive and disturbing, I actually had to put the book down for a bit. But it's also a well paced and suspenseful mystery/thriller that kept me guessing right up until the end. Can't wait to see what she does next ....RECOMMENDED but read at your own risk!!

    I overall liked this book. It is pretty dark and graphic so if you aren't into that stuff, be waned. I found it a bit scary/creepy at times. It was definitely a page turner though and very suspenseful. I also enjoyed the style of writing she uses where she flips back and forth from past to present. I didn't love the ending (no spoilers) but overall I enjoyed reading it. I've also read Gone Girl from Gillian Flynn and I think I liked this just as much. I'm going to read her other book Sharp Objects next!

    I won't lie, though this book came before Gone Girl, the hype around Gone Girl made it so that I read that one first....and then not long after I opened up Dark Places. I don't read a lot of fiction, and I really don't read a lot of mystery. I'm not sure what it is about Gillian Flynn, but she has such a knack for capturing her audience. This book kept me captivated and I could not put it down!! Movie to be released later this year too ;) I am hoping it will stay true to the book.
