Dark Places by Gillian Flynn
That was sick! In a very readable, attractive way. It was one of those books I could not hide away at midnight. Whenever I put it in the closet with the rest of my library book stash, it would be back in my hands five minutes later and I would be wondering who killed the Day family. My suspicions kept switching between people until the very end, which made me think I must have missed something! But when I realized I didn't, the pieces fell together to a beautifully written story that would not let go of me. I'm hoping Sharp Objects, also by Gillian Flynn, will have a similar impression.
Was it just me or did the presence of the Kill Club slowly fade? Bit by bit but not completely. I have a feeling it was intentional but after a while, I would forget Lyle's reasons of being around Libby.
