Book Review: Dark Places by Gillian Flynn

Bookish Kat






A mother and two daughters were brutally murdered in what was suspected to be some kind of cult killing. A 7 year old sister Libby survived and her older brother is in jail for the murders which she claimed to witness. The novel is told from Libby Day’s point of view years later, with flashback chapters throughout the book. Personally I didn’t care for Libby’s tone in telling the story. I understand that seeing your family brutally murdered will leave you damaged for life but I just couldn’t deal with her attitude towards people around her who were nice to her. Ben, the older brother is a very interesting character as his teenage life unfolds in the book. The plot was impressive and well written, I can’t say that the climax “wowed” me at all. I would recommend.


Happy Reading 🙂
