Dark Places semblait être son "meilleur roman" si on exclue "Gone Girl".
Il en ressort que la construction de Dark Places ressemble assez à celle de Gone Girl. Mais, ou Gone Girl proposait des personnages intéressants et un certains nombre de retournement, ici nous connaissons déjà la "conclusion" et les personnages sont plus à "plaindre" qu'autre chose.
Par ailleurs, la personnage principale que l'on suit n'est vraiment pas sympathique et on a du mal à s'associer à elle.
Au final, je considère que Dark Places tient ses promesses, mais il s'agit néanmoins d'une version inférieure de Gone Girl.
A lire si vous êtes fan du style de Gilian.
Once again, Flynn explores the worst aspects of American youth, with its drug and alcohol problem, leading to psychotic behaviour. Brilliant but not for the faint-hearted!

I have also seen but not read Sharp Objects.
This is the third and last Gillian Flynn's, which I've only read.
Still, I'm not sure whether I'm a fan of hers.
There's a certain amount of sensational noise around her books I'm not sure I approve of, a reputation for shocking that smacks of wanting to grab attention...
She's supposed to be so "dark" and so unflinching in her depiction of women.
Sure enough, she doesn't write "pretty" stories or "likeable" characters.
I'm not really bothered by the fact that she writes about "bad" women. Why not? Women don't have the monopoly on goodness. They're like men, flawed and, as stories in the press attest everyday, just as capable of all sorts of nasty things.
People make a big deal of the nastiness in GF's books subject matter. I suppose what shocks perhaps it's that it's a woman creating and writing these things. But again why not, women have an imagination too.
All this is not what I find interesting in her books and in particular this one.
It's the characterisation, not the story per say. All the characters in this book are so well observed and believable, in all their good and bad points, their flaws, their defects, their vulnerability, their helplessness, their humanity and inhumanity, their ugliness.
She writes very well. She can spin a yarn, craft a thrilling mystery and mostly sustain interest making you want to read more and find out what happens, although by the end I'd figured out most it and didn't find the story particularly remarkable or believable.
It's also her ability to paint a picture in a social context that's compelling.
Here the desperation of economically depressed and deprived mid rural white America. The sense of hopelessness, no way out, no present, no future type situation. It's not fluffy reading and more than the gore, it's what gets to you and feels real.
I can't say I really "enjoy" her stories but I don't think that's the point. They make you reflect. Through the characters and the plot, she develops some serious themes, some psychologic and social insights worth looking at.
It's just perhaps a bit too close to real life for comfort at times and forces us to dwell on things we'd rather dismiss from our minds.
The tone was bleak from the outset, the descriptions of murder, blood and gore explicit and chilling.
The premise is good, but the story gets bogged down in side-stories about Ben's descent into 'bad' and flipping between present and future. Libby is only a half-likable character and the Kill Club premise is flimsy, that people would pay her to investigate the crime.
The actual twist/ending was also a bit limp, and again not really believable. Hard to elaborate without spoilers, but it was disappointing having slogged through this miserable story.
I liked Gone Girl and was going to purchase Sharp Objects but I'm less keen now.
It takes a lot for me to dislike a book so much that it doesn't go on my shelf to be re-read at a later point.
I much preferred Sharp Objects and Gone Girl but this was another solid read from my favourite thriller writer. I love the way her characters are real, warts and all.
It's recommend this to anyone who like a really taught,fast paced thriller by a superb writer. I highly recommend it,and Flynn's other books too.
Real flawed help develop a character past their role in the plot and into real actual humans. But in Dark Places I felt that every single character was so deeply flawed and inherently unlikable that it causes a bit of a barrier for me and I struggled a little to make it last the middle.
I am very glad I kept reading, as one thing I love about Flynn's writing is her endings!
No spoilers, but a twisted and surprising while also satisfyingly understandable ending is another thing I've come to expect and enjoy. The ending was perfect.
I also enjoyed the quick references to real-life events that helped to root the story in the time period (which I'm too young to have any familiarity or nostalgia for). This helped suck me into Libby's horrible world.
I've chosen 3 stars, though I'd rather give 3.5 because I really did enjoy the story even if I did want someone to root for!
