My second novel my Gillian Flynn

Sharp Objects

Sharp Objects

By: Gillian Flynn

Genre: fiction

Pages: 272

Published: 2006

Read: September

3 out of 5

After enjoying Gone Girl, by Flynn I was a bit disappointed in this novel.  The story started out strong, but the end felt rushed, which is similar to my feelings about Gone Girl.  The characters were well developed, however I was surprised to see an author, especially a female author, write a story with such weak female characters. While she developed them well; not a single female character was strong. In fact, they were way too weak for me. It would have helped if at least one minor female character was strong willed.  Even though I was not completely enthralled with this novel, I will probably still read her other novels and give her a chance to redeem herself.
