I was initially going to round this up to a two-star, but I realized I didn't have a real reason. Camille has about one hundred insecurities and has only ever known hurt and betrayal and not for once in her life has she felt loved. I really liked , but was quite disappointed by , so I had absolutely no idea what I would think about this book.

Camille has to cope with an uncooperative local Sheriff and then try to get some, any information from the very cute Kansas City detective who had been brought in to help out. In kinda skimming through it impatiently now, some parts come back, but it doesn't have a lasting impression. Camille got under my skin, zero pun intended, and I enjoyed the whole ride. Before entering the first time, panting and cover the woods, she could home that a serial killer is to his office. I think it would have been much stronger had we followed the revaluation in real-time along with Camille's initial reactions as opposed to having the events relayed to readers at a later time.
Then it strikes her, her mother enjoys having sick children. The reasoning was interesting, though the way it was all revealed match the same odd, explicit tone as the rest of the story. Maybe my opinion will change after reading Gone Girl or Dark Places. New York City: Kirkus Media. One of the best acting roles I've seen her play.
It only counts as a successful prank if I catch you on the day itself, though. And the words on her skin pop into her mind as she digs into her research and takes on the psychological challenges of her home town. The idea of children being murdered and a journalist having to return to their small hometown was super intriguing to me, but the execution fell flat in my opinion. Unfortunately, I did not love this book and it is probably my least favorite of Gillian Flynn's work. I read this in one sitting, no pause for water, no pause whatsoever. He is one of the main suspects in the murders, and his alibi during the disappearance of his sister sounds suspicious to the police and townspeople. When two girls are abducted and killed in Missouri, journalist Camille Preaker is sent Squee! But it is quite disturbing.
Can she see clearly what is right before her eyes. A distraught Camille flees and arrives at Richard's motel and has sex with him. No wonder Camille was reluctant to go back home. This is one mean and nasty book. They were going to ruin everything. I was impressed with the writing of this book and understand why this author has hit it off worldwide. Needless to say, that it is with obvious disappointment I'm giving this book only 2 stars.

Eileen and Curry treat her like their child. Waves of her unresolved issues wash away further hopes of a challenging literary work as readers are practically dragged into her problems not loved enough by her mother, not popular enough in school, not motivated enough in her work and are subjected to the anguish of either feeling sorry for her or wanting to end her existence. As Camille works to uncover the truth about these violent crimes, she finds herself identifying with the young victims - a bit too strongly.
When a child has a mother from hell - kinda shapes your life from the 'get-go' and not in a pretty way. In fact, every place in Wind Gap feels a little haunted. The major symbols like that of the meat slaughterhouse is more defined about author Gillian Flynn's beliefs about animal abuse and meat consumption. Most of them that I have come across are not this confidently, this surgically composed.

How is this a book????? Thank you for the review! It is a good book for sure if the writing can have such an effect. Some actions of hers seemed a bit too hectic? Murder Plotlets - Kind of investigator - Kid or adult book? Camille runs into Amma behind a store where Amma is getting high. She has a tendency to cut herself. It was very slow and for the most part, anticlimactic to me. By all accounts, this is a Gillian Flynn novel.

Then Camille realizes that she's doing it to garner attention and sympathy from everyone because Camille's older sister, Marian, died when she was 13 from a terminal illness. He says they weren't made by him.
