Dark Places by Gillian Flynn


Libby Day was seven when her mother and two sisters were murdered in “The Satan Sacrifice” of Kinnakee, Kansas. She survived—and famously testified that her fifteen-year-old brother, Ben, was the killer. Twenty-five years later, the Kill Club—a secret secret society obsessed with notorious crimes—locates Libby and pumps her for details. They hope to discover proof that may free Ben. Libby hopes to turn a profit off her tragic history: She’ll reconnect with the players from that night and report her findings to the club—for a fee. As Libby’s search takes her from shabby Missouri strip clubs to abandoned Oklahoma tourist towns, the unimaginable truth emerges, and Libby finds herself right back where she started—on the run from a killer.

My Thoughts

Wow! First off, Gillian Flynn is an amazing author. I love her style, the way she keeps you on your toes guessing and constantly changing your mind about what the outcome will be. I also like how she adds just the right amount of action, drama and sex in a book so that you are not turned off in anyway by either having too little or too much of each. It was interesting that she let us get a taste of what actually happened from each characters point of view. I kept experiencing like and dislike for the characters throughout the story.  The end didn’t let me down, I was completely satisfied with the truth of what really happened to the Day family. It was definitely a nail biter for me. Read this book!!!!
