DARK PLACES by Gillian Flynn
During my search for my prior blog “Books with endings that will SHOCK you”, I came across numerous references to the novel Dark Places by Gillian Flynn. The premise of this book definitely sparked my interest and I immediately downloaded it to my Kindle. This novel tells the story of Libby Day, whose mother and two sisters were brutally murdered when she was 7 years old. Her teenage brother Ben was ultimately tried and convicted for the crimes but did he do it?
Now grown and motivated by money, Libby sets out to find the truth out about that night despite her reservations. The result is a roller coaster of a story with twists, turns and suspects around every corner.
I won’t spoil this one for you but I highly recommend checking it out. Once I started reading, I was unable to put it down until I reached the end and now that I have finished I am going to check out the movie version starring Charlize Theron (shown below). Happy reading, I hope you enjoy as much as I did!
