Descripción

Libro Sharp objects. Sinopsis libro, reseña libro. From the author of the No.1 bestseller and international phenomenon GONE GIRL. Now a major HBO/SKY ATLANTIC TV series starring Amy Adams, with the director of BIG LITTLE LIES, Jean-Marc Vallee.When two girls are abducted and killed in Missouri, journalist Camille Preaker is sent back to her home town to report on the crimes. Long-haunted by a childhood tragedy and estranged from her mother for years, Camille suddenly finds herself installed once again in her family’s mansion, reacquainting herself with her distant mother and the half-sister she barely knows – a precocious 13-year-old who holds a disquieting grip on the town.As Camille works to uncover the truth about these violent crimes, she finds herself identifying with the young victims – a bit too strongly. Clues keep leading to dead ends, forcing Camille to unravel the psychological puzzle of her own past to get at the story. Dogged by her own demons, Camille will have to confront what happened to her years before if she wants to survive this homecoming.’To say this is a terrific debut novel is really too mild. I haven’t read such a relentlessly creepy family saga since John Farris’s ALL HEADS TURN AS THE HUNT GOES BY, and that was thirty years ago, give or take. SHARP OBJECTS isn’t one of those scare-and-retreat books; its effect is cumulative. I found myself dreading the last thirty pages or so, but was helpless to stop turning them. Then, after the lights were out, the story just stayed there in my head, coiled and hissing, like a snake in a cave’ STEPHEN KING’SHARP OBJECTS is a witty, stylish, and compelling debut. A real winner’ HARLAN COBEN’Sharp, clean exciting writing that grabs you from the first page. A real pleasure’ KATE ATKINSON’Sharp Objects is one of the freshest debut thrillers to come around in a long while. It’s a gripping, substantive story, stripped of cliche, and crafted with great style. The characters are refreshingly real, burdened with psychological issues that enrich the story’ AUGUSTEN BURROUGHS’With her blistering debut Sharp Objects, Gillian Flynn hit the ground running.’ VAL McDERMID ‘Sharp Objects is creepy, claustrophobic and dark as all hell. With a gloriously twisted plot, a brooding atmosphere and a beautifully realised central character, this is easily the best debut novel I’ve read in a very long time.’ MARK BILLINGHAM Libro Sharp objects.

    There is something deeply unhealthy about this book. It’s in the characters, in the story, in the relationships, in the sex, and just in the general mood of the novel. Reading this made me feel a little unwell, both physically and mentally, but I am glad I did. If you know me, you’ll know I love complex characters with issues that feel raw and real, rather than melodramatic. The people in this novel are majorly fucked up, no one is without a dark past and everyone, it seems, has a horror story.

    The protagonist – Camille Preaker – was just thirteen when her sister died and fuelled by grief (amongst other things) Camille spent her teen years carving words into her flesh, covering almost every inch of her body with the marks of her pain. Ten years later, Camille Preaker is now a journalist who returns to the small town of her youth to report on the murders of two young girls – girls who had had all of their teeth removed.

    Camille is soon caught up in the town once again, she tries to get along with the mother who never loved her and establish a relationship with the troublesome half sister she hardly knows. It seems that once again small towns hold the biggest secrets and Camille finds herself getting dragged deeper and deeper into the investigation, her fragile state of mind constantly threatening to tip her over the edge.

    This is one mean and nasty book. I knew I was getting a dark, psychological thriller, but I expected something on par with In The Woods by Tana French. Um, not exactly. Flynn never shies away from the horrific details. You’re not going to find anything pleasant in this story; sex, for example, is always something complex – it’s an escape or a bargain or a catharsis. Everything else is similar.

    Flynn does a fantastic job of challenging the notion that women are weak, innocent, damsels in distress. In a world where women are victims – both in their media representation and in statistics – this is a very interesting look at other kinds of women. It’s programmed into us to believe that women are safer, kinder, built with an instinct that makes it difficult for them to be cruel and cause pain without reason. Maybe we were always wrong.
