Review: Dark Places by Gillian Flynn

Product Description:
Libby Day was seven when her mother and two sisters were murdered in “The Satan Sacrifice" of Kinnakee, Kansas.” She survived—and famously testified that her fifteen-year-old brother, Ben, was 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: She’ll reconnect with the players from that night and report her findings to the club—for a fee. As Libby’s search takes her from shabby Missouri strip clubs to abandoned Oklahoma tourist towns, the unimaginable truth emerges, and Libby finds herself right back where she started—on the run from a killer.

My Thoughts:
OH EM GEE!! I could not get enough of Dark Places. I've read plenty of books that have made me want to skip to the end just because I was dying to find out how it all turned out but this one tops them all. I just couldn't figure out what was going on and as I read each chapter I kept flip flopping on whether or not Ben was innocent. This was the same way I felt when I read Flynn's other bestseller, Gone Girl.

When I did finally get to the end I just couldn't believe this was how it all ended. It was kind of like I loved it and hated it all at the same time. Dark Places is definitely one of those books that you'll be thinking about long after you turn the last page. 

My Recommendation:
I recommend this one to anyone who loves an edge of your seat suspense thriller.

I loved this book, too! Did you see that the "Gone Girl" is coming out later this year? Gillian Flynn is one of my favorite new authors!
