Book Review: Dark Places – Gillian Flynn

In one word…YES!

It was like the itch I couldn’t scratch. I’ve been looking for a good thriller, whodunit. Something creepy and mature. Something I couldn’t rest on. No book I’ve recently read in that genre scratched the right spot, my back convulsing with frustration cause nothing quite reached it…until Dark Places.

It was eery, but realistic, graphic. The story toggles back and forth between characters and years, which kept it interesting because it told the same story in different perspectives. Uncovering lies and deception, or reaffirming truths.

Libby Day is quirky, and exactly how you would expect a young women to be after her family is murdered when she is a child. She seeks to find the truth behind the murders – with trepidation, not the typical hard nosed character that just HAS to find the killer.

The better news is…this novel is coming to the big screen sometime this year! The movie stars Charlize Theron as Libby Day…it couldn’t get better.

If you liked Gone GirlDark Places takes it one step further.

We read to learn, to feel, to laugh, to understand others. We write to teach, express, communicate, to inspire others. I created Invisible Ink as an outlet of sorts, an area where I can organize the chaos; a place where hopefully I can be true to myself, and my readers. Writing is personal, it takes a brave and dedicated soul to formulate a piece and then share it with the world. That being said, I get just as much out of reading other's work as I do sharing mine ( I am always open to manuscript review swaps, just send me a message). Words read off a page evoke emotions. When taken out of context, or through an out of focus lens - anyone can mold the words, shifting their meaning to fit their agenda or distorted outlook. Staying true to form and myself, I won't censor my content, but I will censor my audience. Whatever lens you happen to be reading this through - I hope you enjoy!

I'd love to hear your thoughts!
