Book Review – Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn

Ahhhhh….the twisted mind that is of Gillian Flynn. The familiar warped women characters that come with her other books such as Gone Girl and Dark Places, Sharp Objects is by far my favorite thus far.

A flawed journalist goes back to her home town to cover a story about a serial killer and gets sucked into the plot. It’s mysterious and disturbing right up till the end, but what I liked most about this book that I hadn’t seen in the previous two novels was a shift in the main character. While she still remains humanly flawed at the end, she is also transformed into an improved version of her former self- a must read if you are into thrillers!

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!
