Dark Places by Gillian Flynn

My rating: 4.7

Libby Day was seven when her mother and two sisters were murdered in “The Satan Sacrifice" of Kinnakee, Kansas.” She survived—and her testimony convicted her fifteen-year-old brother, Ben, as the killer. Twenty-five years later, the Kill Club—a secret secret society obsessed with notorious crimes—locates Libby and pumps her for details. They hope to discover proof that may free Ben. Libby hopes to turn a profit off her tragic history.

True to Flynn's style, this book was very uncomfortable for me in all of the dysfunction. It flashes back and forth in time from pre-murder to modern day....closing in on the actual murder. I wasn't sure how I felt till the end and realized that, I loved it including all of it's warped twisted portrayal of every character.


  1. Just finished this book. I think it may be my favorite Gillian Flynn book. Loved the unexpected twists and turns. The ending was a complete surprise. Now I'm on to read The Secret Wisdom of the Earth. Have a great weekend!

  2. I agree about this being a fav of her books. It seems that you and I have similar taste :-)
