Book Review – Dark Places

Book Title: Dark Places

Author: Gillian Flynn

Is this book part of a series? No

Short Summary
An adult Libby Day looks back at murders of her family when she was 7 years old. Her brother, then only 15, was convicted of the killings which took place on a farm in Kansas. Libby comes to believe that her brother did not commit the crimes.

My favorite part of the book was…
Characters are individually brought out and developed so you feel you know these people and what they were each experiencing that lead to the family’s tragedy. No one is particularly likeable, even Libby but understandable. Libby has grown into a “user” of people. You see how she became that person and how she, in her own way, tries to change.

I recommend this book to people who like…
Gone Girl by the same author
