Fresh from a brief stay at a psych hospital, reporter Camille Preaker faces a troubling assignment: she must return to her tiny hometown to cover the murders of two preteen girls. For years, Camille has hardly spoken to her neurotic, hypochondriac mother or to the half-sister she barely knows. Dogged by her demons, Camille must unravel the psychological puzzle of her past if she wants to get the story—and survive this homecoming.
The novel was published back in 2006, but as a new reader, Sharp Objects is what you will expect from Gillian Flynn. Debauchery of a women’s thriller. A play of psychological problems, drugs, sex, and abuse of every kind. A focus on the women’s psyche and shocking conversations.
The novel starts with the slow development of the main character with a heavyweight on the psychological problems. Camille carried them from her childhood due to a poor relationship with her mother. The loss of a beloved sister drove her to the edge of psychological instability and physical hurt. Spiraling on a self-destructive path, Camille managed to amass a career and a life free of her abusive mother.
However, Camille goes back to town to her mother’s Victorian house, which works as a foreshadowing omen of the horror stories that promise to plague the Wind Gap and Camille’s realities. In the perfect light of a detective thriller, Camille digs deeper into the events that are driving the horrendous murders that are terrifying the villagers.
Keeping you at the edge of the chair, the reader keeps on reading trying to confirm if the killer is who we think it is or if an amazing twist the author will surprise us with the unseen clues left in the novel while the author made us focus on the wrong abuse.
