Sharp Objects was a addictive, suspenseful, and thrilling adult novel that blew me away! I love everything from how fast things moved to how smartly written it was. Camille Preaker was the perfect protagonist for Sharp Objects and I liked seeing how as she uncovers the secrets of the two preteen murders to her life.
One thing I loved about Sharp Objects that challenged me to pick more Adult books was how mature the characters, topics, and writing are. There's more seriousness, yet Flynn wrote with such finesse I could really relate to everything Camille faced. There was some romance and it actually worked. I didn't feel like it was rushed or as impulsive as romance in YA, but it was something different. I'm really glad I stepped out of my zone and picked Sharp Objects up! It's definitely a book everyone should pick up instantly.
Haunting, chilling, and suspensful Sharp Objects will blow away every reader and you'll be wanting to pick up Flynn's other books also!
