Fresh from a brief stay at a psych hospital, reporter Camille Preaker faces a troubling assignment: she must return to her tiny hometown to cover the murders of two preteen girls. For years, Camille has hardly spoken to her neurotic, hypochondriac mother or to the half-sister she barely knows: a beautiful thirteen-year-old with an eerie grip on the town. Now, installed in her old bedroom in her family's Victorian mansion, Camille finds herself identifying with the young victims—a bit too strongly. Dogged by her own demons, she must unravel the psychological puzzle of her own past if she wants to get the story—and survive this homecoming.

Mehr über den Autor

Gillian Flynn wuchs in Kansas City, Missouri, auf. Nach College und Universitäts-Studium in Kansas und Chicago zog es sie nach Kalifornien, anschließend nach New York. Sie war zehn Jahre lang die leitende TV-Kritikerin von >Entertainment Weekly<. Im Jahre 2006 erschien ihr erster Roman >Cry Baby<, mit dem sie großes Aufsehen erregte. Das Buch erhielt gleich zwei >British Dagger Awards<. Ihr zweiter Roman >Finstere Orte< erschien 2009 und wurde ebenfalls ein riesiger Erfolg. Im Juli 2012 erschien ihr dritter Roman >Gone Girl< und löste ein riesiges Medienspektakel aus. Das Buch stand monatelang auf Platz 1 der New York Times-Bestsellerliste und wurde mehr als 3 Millionen mal verkauft. Alle drei Bücher werden verfilmt und demnächst im Kino zu sehen sein. Die Autorin lebt mit ihrer Familie in Chicago.


Gillian Flynn is TV critic for US magazine Entertainment Weekly, but after the highly impressive thriller debut that is Sharp Objects, she may have to re-think the day job – particularly as such masters of the thriller as Harlan Coben and Stephen King are falling over each other to praise her novel.

Flynn’s conflicted heroine is journalist Camille Parker, who is holding down a job on a low-rent newspaper, convinced that she’s inspiring only feeling of disappointment in her editor, who has nursed unfulfilled hopes for her journalistic career. Camille, from a small town called Wind Gap in Missouri, sees herself as white trash, but actually hails from a moneyed family. To maintain her sanity, she has escaped from the town and her highly-strung, hypochondriac mother. But bad news beckons: she is summoned by her editor, who suggests she return to her home town to cover the abduction and murder of two young girls. Despite all her reservations (not least for her own mental equilibrium), she feels she must go, returning to the impressive Victorian mansion that was her home. She is quickly back in dangerous territory with her demanding mother – and reminding herself how she fell into a dark cycle of self-harm. Another problem is her Lolita-ish half-sister, a precocious teenager with a following of alienated girlfriends and some dark secrets of her own. Back in this destabilising territory, Camille is reminded of the childhood tragedy that left a mark on her. Looking into the deaths of the murdered girls, she starts to make big mistakes: going to bed with the investigator assigned to the case, and, worse, getting involved with the prime suspect, a disturbed teenager.

This heady brew of Southern gothic is dispatched with an assurance that totally belies the fact that this is a debut novel – and, what’s more, will have most readers hungry for more of Gillian Flynn’s individual brand of sexually-charged menace. --Barry Forshaw -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.



“A first novel that reads like the accomplished work of a long-time pro, the book draws you in and keeps you reading with the force of a pure but nasty addiction...Flynn's book goes deeper than your average thriller. It has all the narrative drive of a serious pop novel and much of the psychological complexity of a mainstream character study. All in all, a terrific debut.”
—Alan Cheuse, The Chicago Tribune

“A compulsively readable psychological thriller that marks [a] dazzling debut...[Flynn] has written a clever crime story with astonishing twists and turns, and enough suspense for the most demanding fans of the genre. But it is the sensitive yet disturbing depiction of her heroine that makes this an especially engrossing story...Flynn's empathic understanding of her major characters leads to storytelling that is sure and true, and it marks her a write to watch.”
—Chicago Sun-Times

“To say this is a terrific debut novel is really too mild. I haven't read such a relentlessly creepy family saga since John Farris's All Heads Turn as the Hunt Goes By, and that was thirty years ago, give or take. Sharp Objects isn't one of those scare-and-retreat books; its effect is cumulative. I found myself dreading the last thirty pages or so but was helpless to stop turning them. Then, after the lights were out, the story just stayed there in my head, coiled and hissing, like a snake in a cave. An admirably nasty piece of work, elevated by sharp writing and sharper insights.”
—Stephen King

“Not often enough, I come across a first novel so superb that it seems to have been written by an experienced author, perhaps with 20 earlier books to his or her credit. I'm extremely excited to discover my first debut blowout this year, a sad, horrifying book called Sharp Objects...[Flynn] is the real deal. Her story, writing and the characters will worm their way uncomfortably beneath your skin...But this is more literary novel than simple mystery, written with anguish and lyricism. It will be short-listed for one or more important awards at the end of the year...Sharp Objects is a 2006 favorite so far. I doubt I'll ever forget it.”
—Cleveland Plain Dealer

“A deeply creepy exploration of small-town Midwestern values and boasts one of the most deliciously dysfunctional families to come along in a while...[Flynn] handles the narrative with confidence and a surprisingly high level of skill...Wind Gap ends up the sort of place you'd never want to visit. But with Sharp Objects, you're in no hurry to leave.”
—San Francisco Chronicle

“Brilliant...Powerful, mesmerizing...A stunning, powerful debut from someone who truly has something to say.”
—San Jose Mercury News

“One of the best and most disturbing books I have read in a long time...Flynn never stoops to the gratuitous, and the torment produces haunting characters that hung around my imagination long after I had finished the book. Her skillful blending of old tragedies with new culminated in an 'oh-my-gosh' moment that I never saw coming. This book simply blew me away.”
—Kansas City Star

“Don't look here for the unrelenting self-deprecation and the moping over men common chick lit...I promise you'll be thoroughly unnerved at the end.”

“First-time novelist Flynn is a natural-born thriller.”
—People Style Watch

“A witty, stylish, and compelling debut. A real winner.”
—Harlan Coben

“Flynn delivers a great whodunit, replete with hinting details, telling dialogue, dissembling clues. Better yet, she offers appalling, heartbreaking insight into the darkness of her women's lives: the Stepford polish of desperate housewives, the backstabbing viciousness of drug-gobbling, sex-for-favors Mean Girls, the simmering rage bound to boil over. Piercingly effective and genuinely terrifying.”
—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“Fans of psychological thrillers will welcome narrator/Chicago Daily Post reporter Camille Preaker with open arms...As first-time novelist Flynn expertly divulges in this tale reminiscent of the works of Shirley Jackson, there is much more to discover about Wind Gap and, most of all, about Camille.”
—Library Journal

“This impressive debut novel is fueled by stylish writing and compelling portraits...In a particularly seductive narrative style, Flynn adopts the cynical, knowing patter of a weary reporter, but it is her portraits of the town's backstabbing, social-climbing, bored, and bitchy females that provoke her sharpest and most entertaining writing. A stylish turn on dark crimes and even darker psyches.”

“[A] chilling debut thriller...[Flynn] writes fluidly of smalltown America.”
—Publishers Weekly

“[Flynn]] offers up a literary thriller that's a doozy...and she does it with wit and grit, a sort of Hitchcock visits Stephen King, with plenty of the former's offstage and often only implied violence, and the latter's sense of pacing and facility with dialogue...This is not a comfortable novel of touchy-feely family fun. Rather, it is a tough tale told with remarkable clarity and dexterity, particularly for a first-time author.”
—Denver Post

“A tense, irresistible thriller...Flynn's first-person narration is pitch-perfect, but even more impressive is the way she orchestrates the slim novel's onrushing tension toward a heart-stopping climax.”
—Seattle Post-Intelligencer

“Darkly original...Flynn expertly ratchets up the suspense...A disturbing yet riveting tale.”

“Skillful and disturbing...Flynn writes so well. Sometimes she dips her pen in acid, sometimes she is lyrical, but always she chooses her words deftly...She has an unsparing eye for human imperfection and for the evil that moves among us.”
—Washington Post

“Using understated, almost stark prose, Flynn paints a jagged, unflinching portrait of the vise-like psychological bonds between women, and how their demons lead to the perpetuation of cruelties upon themselves and others. The end result is an unsettling portrait of how long emotional wounds can last- and how deeply they hurt.”
—Baltimore Sun

“More in the tradition of Joyce Carol Oates than Agatha Christie, this one will leave readers profoundly disturbed. But from the first know you're in the hands of a talented and accomplished writer.”
—The Boston Globe

“[A] breathtaking debut...Written with multiple twists and turns, Sharp Objects is a work of psychological prowess and page-turning thrills.”
—Richmond Times

“As suspenseful as the V.C. Andrews books you shared in high school, but much smarter.”

Sharp Objects is one of the freshest debut thrillers to come around in a long while. It's a gripping, substantive story, stripped of cliche, and crafted with great style. The characters are refreshingly real, burdened with psychological issues that enrich the story. And the ending, which I was positive I could predict, is unpredictable. Sharp Objects is, indeed, quite sharp.”
Augusten Burroughs

“Sharp, clean, exciting writing that grabs you from the first page. A real pleasure.”
—Kate Atkinson, author of Case Histories and One Good Turn

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fast besser als Gone Girl 30. Juli 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Ich war von Gone Girl sehr angetan, bis auf das sehr schlecht konstruierte Ende. Sharp Objects fängt harmlos und gemächlich an, aber je mehr Information man über die Protagonisten bekommt, desto mehr stehen einem die Haare zu Berge. Es tun sich viele menschlichen Abgründe auf, aber wer am Ende kein Mitgefühl für Camille hat, ist vielleicht einfach nur hartherzig.
Die schlechten Rezensionen bei überraschen mich, zumal das Buch bei deutlich besser wegkommt.
Ach ja, und wer nicht versteht, warum Camille sich schneidet, hat das Buch schlichtweg nicht verstanden oder evtl ein anderen Buch gelesen. Ich kann das Buch nur weiterempfehlen.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Gripping, dark novel 1. Januar 2014
Von KrankyKat
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I truly don't understand why this novel has gotten such bad reviews on Interestingly, the reviews on are much more positive. It is rated almost 5 stars there.

I liked the novel through and through, from the first sentence to the description of small town Missouri, from the first hints as to who might be the murderer to the solution. I especially like the way we get to know Camille as she is finding out more about herself. As an attentive reader, you are sometimes ahead of her and what she finds out, then again I was surprised at what she found out and concluded. Everything seems to be like the doll house - out there in the open and yet almost perfectly hidden.

And I must agree with one of the other reviewers: while Camille's reason for inflicting the pain of cutting on her are extremely complex and multi-layered, they are there: we do grow to understand her behavior. It is in fact one of the strengths of this novel that it does not try to pin this behavior down to one single, obvious reason.

Maybe my being a fan of literature about small town life in the Midwest / the South (and particularly Missouri) has helped me to enjoy this novel even more - but the novel is a great psychological study of the family and dares to go beyond stereotyped views of motherhood and being a daughter. It is a great story of a grown-up person's self-discovery.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Gillian Flynn's beloved dark style 22. September 2014
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
As always, very interesting characters, very gripping style of writing and the atmosphere just so hopelessly claustrophobic. Mrs. Flynn has a pattern of presenting complex female characters and letting you in on their deepest secrets and fears. I just loved how the secrets were page by page divulged to the reader and allowing him/her to sympathize with each action, each dark thought. Excellent read for summer vacations. I literally "swallowed" the content within a week!

One negative point: After "Gone Girl" expectations from Mrs. Flynn are naturally high... Yes, this is a dark psychological neo-horror and yes, it's very intricately written and gripping, but something seems to be missing. Perhaps it the subtlety of characters. Sharp Objects gives you very simplified villains. Hence the 4 stars. The ending seems to be too simplified.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Extrem und polarisierend 7. Oktober 2007
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Am Anfang war ich von diesem Debut-Krimi vollkommen in den Bann gezogen, jedoch nach den ersten 100 Seiten kippte mein positives Gefühl aufgrund der Übertreibungen und extremen Schwarz-Weiß-Zeichnungen: Ein Ort voll gleichgültiger Menschen, voll mit Drogen- und Alkoholexzessen, voll mit 13jährigen Teenagern, die nichts anderes im Sinn haben als Sex, Alkohol, Gewalt, Drogen und noch mehr Sex.
So ist das Leben heutzutage in einer x-beliebigen amerikanischen Kleinstadt ?
Alles zu sehr übertrieben und zu extrem. Dazu kommt keine richtige Spannung auf. Kein schlechtes Debut, aber auch kein herrausragendes. Nach dem Lesen des Romans bleibt irgendwie ein schales Gefühl zurück.
Nur bedingt empfehlenswert - schon gar nicht als Ferienlektüre....
