"Gillian Flynn is the real deal, a sharp, acerbic, and compelling storyteller with a knack for the macabre." —Stephen King

This collection, available exclusively as an ebook, brings together the first two novels of Gillian Flynn, author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Gone Girl. In Sharp Objects, Flynn’s debut novel, a young journalist returns home to cover a dark assignment—and to face her own damaged family history. With its taut, crafted writing, Sharp Objects is addictive, haunting, and unforgettable. Flynn’s second novel, Dark Places, is an intricately orchestrated thriller that ravages a family's past to unearth the truth behind a horrifying crime. A New York Times bestseller and Weekend Today Top Summer Read, Dark Places solidified Flynn’s status as one of the most critically acclaimed suspense writers of our time.

I truely enjoyed both of these books. I originally read "Gone Girl" and really liked that, but feel I even liked these better! (if that is possible). I highly recommend both of these books! Keep you on the edge of your seat!

Fantastic Books. Read Gone Girl first and loved her writing style so much I went straight for these two. I was not disappointed, these are great stories. Some very disturbed and raw characters in each. They keep you guessing and even if you figure out “whodunit” you are not at all let down by the reveal of the actual...highly recommend!!

I really enjoyed reading these 2 books. They both held my interest and kept me wanting more. highly recommend it you like thriller/suspense type of books.

The language and flavor of the writing style is pretty conservative. But the main characters are wildly unorthodox. Enjoyed the first two very much. Now reading her 3rd. I hope she decides to make more humorous and mildly crazy conversational jokes. I think it's in her ;-)

Both books were great. I felt they were better than Gone Girl. Moved quickly and had well thought out characters. I have recommend this book to my friends.

I read Sharp Objects and Dark Places after reading Gone Girl. I think that was a problem. I loved Gone Girl so much that these books were a letdown. I would definitely recommend Sharp Objects but I did not enjoy Dark Places. It seemed to go on forever and the story just wasn't that interesting to me. On the other hand, Sharp Objects kept me guessing.

These are two books that once you start to read, you can't put down! Spellbinding.

Both stories tell hauntingly twisted tales that keep you guessing. The characters are very real. The details will make you grimace but you just have to keep reading. I cannot wait for more!
