The Gillian Flynn Collection: Sharp Objects, Dark Places, Gone Girl (English Edition)
The Gillian Flynn Collection: Sharp Objects, Dark Places, Gone Girl (English Edition)
Preis: EUR 13,99

5.0 von 5 Sternen Very dark, with loveable flawed protagonists, 27. Januar 2014
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
I read all three, one after the other, and could not get enough. I especially liked Sharp Objects, and the deep relationship the main character, Camille. Her very name seems to contrast her inner self, however calm and cool she remains on the outside. She is a loveable screw-up with a hard upbringing and an even darker family history. Readers can both relate to the various figures portrayed in Flynn's books..and get irrevocably riled by others!!

I loved reading her acknowledgements, too, as she wrote something along the lines of "I promise, Mum, one of these days I'll write a story in which the mother doesn't murder or get murdered!" Can't wait 'till her next novel comes out. I am, most certainly, a fan for life.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Waste of time reading it, waste of paper printing it., 2. Dezember 2013
After having read so many negative reviews, I was pushed to buy it myself for my Kindle. Given, previous plots were not deep and the characters can tend to be 2D if they don't feature in the plot's foreground, but I think the majority of us who have read all of the Stackhouse stories will agree that the other books were enjoyable, a bit of "mind surfing", a bit of good clean (not all the time, ooh er) fun.
This was not the case here. The term "novel" made me think that you would accompany Sookie on her last adventure, not pay for, essentially, an encyclopedia-form edition with a couple sentences summing up the "happily ever after" tales of characters some of us have followed for years. I really thought that after the A-Z of absolutely everyone ever mentioned in the books, that they would be given a credible, decent "putting to bed", so to speak. Instead we were given a "Jane Bodehouse died", "Sookie and Sam live happily ever after have a bunch of kids, one's telepathic" version that I for one was quite bummed out by. Surely after existing in print for what, 13/15 years(not sure about the time span there), you'd think they'd deserve more than a mere dictionary entry. Felt like a pathetic sneeze of a "book" and was over in under half an hour.

Really wasn't worth buying.I wish I'd stopped at Deadlocked and used my own imagination. Put me off reading anything else by Harris, if I'm just going to be let down at the end of another series!
