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 Girl, Dark Places takes it one step further.
