If I could choose one word to sum up all of Sharp Objects, it would be addictive. Dark and twisted, you're drawn in from the very first page, ensnared into a story you love to hate and can't put down. Throughout the book I was conflicted, unsure if I liked it or not but helplessly unable to turn off the light and go to bed. As the chapters flew by I found myself increasingly disturbed and intrigued at the same time.
Camille Preaker, a reporter recovering from a recent stay in a mental hospital, is sent back to her hometown by her boss to cover the story of the murder of a young girl and the disappearance of another. Returning home brings back buried childhood memories and a troubled past, with the case stirring up things best left forgotten.
