Praise for Dark Places
[A] nerve-fraying thriller.The New York Times
Flynns well-paced story deftly shows the fallibility of memory and the lies a child tells herself to get through a trauma.The New Yorker

Gillian Flynn coolly demolished the notion that little girls are made of sugar and spice in Sharp Objects, her sensuous and chilling first thriller. In Dark Places, her equally sensuous and chilling follow-up, Flynn . . . has conjured up a whole new crew of feral and troubled young females. . . . [A] propulsive and twisty mystery.Entertainment Weekly
Flynn follows her deliciously creepy Sharp Objects with another dark tale . . . The story, alternating between the 1985 murders and the present, has a tense momentum that works beautifully. And when the truth emerges, its so macabre not even twisted little Libby Day could see it coming.People (4 stars)
Crackles with peevish energy and corrosive wit. Dallas Morning News
A riveting tale of true horror by a writer who has all the gifts to pull it off.Chicago Tribune

"It's Flynn's gift that she can make a caustic, self-loathing, unpleasant protagonist someone you come to root for.New York Magazine
[A] gripping thriller.Cosmopolitan
"Gillian Flynn is the real deal, a sharp, acerbic, and compelling storyteller with a knack for the macabre.Stephen King.

As Libby investigates her family's death to exonerate her own guilt, she unravels some unbelievable reveals.

Best intentions go horribly wrong.
Dreams and plans are misinterpreted.
Greed and fear create lies.

Actions do have consequences and when all these things conspire willing and unknowingly, it creates an amalgam of events that ends up in tragedy. A tragedy that doesn't really get justice because when it's all said and done, there's no bringing back the dead.

This was not an easy read.
This does not contain a happy ending nor a satisfying conclusion.
This was something that was hard to get through but admittedly, was compelling nonetheless. ( )

This is my first Gillian Flynn book, and wow, can she write!

Dark Places is a fabulous journey, not only regarding the storyline, but the way words are used, how commas are placed, and the cadence of the sentences - it all flowed so seamlessly, so real, so unscripted. So many writers, myself included, can get hung up on the properness of grammar, syntax usage, and the transition of sentences - because we are told that is the 'right' way to write. Ms. Flynn wrote Dark Places from her characters' voices without regard to rules and "supposed tos," and she nailed it.

Suffice to say, the writing is what I am most thrilled about, but the plot does not fall short or even come in second place - it too is worthy of much reflection. Dark Places is the name a survivor of her family's murders uses when she recalls what took place when she was seven years old. The book twists from the murders to the present (twenty-five years later), following how Libby, the survivor, is coping while learning the truth about the murders that left her brother sitting in prison.

An outstanding story with excellent writing; both readers and writers will enjoy Dark Places. I will read another Gillian Flynn book. ( )

I read this immediately after Sharp Objects. IMO, Sharp Objects was twice as good. I found myself skimming through parts of this one because it just dragged on too much. Not an awful read, but it could have been much better. ( )

this was on all accounts disturbing.


This novel is a fascinating murder mystery, but it is so much more than that. It is a wise, evocative character study -- a glimpse into the lives of people who are lost and are struggling to find their way in a dangerous world. Some never find a path, some show others a path, and some find refuge -- which can be either heaven or hell. But all of these people -- for better or worse -- matter, and their intertwined lives are a lesson to the reader that even the tiniest action may have huge unintended consequences.

“I have a meanness inside me, real as an organ. Slit me at my belly and it might slide out, meaty and dark, drop on the floor so you could stomp on it. It’s the Day blood. Something’s wrong with it. I was never a good little girl, and I got worse after the murders.”
“I was not a lovable child, and I’d grown into a deeply unlovable adult. Draw a picture of my soul, and it’d be a scribble with fangs.”
