3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Nicola Manning-Mansfield HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on Sept. 18 2009
Format: Hardcover
Reason for Reading: The plot sounded like this would be the perfect read for me, but I haven't read her first book which has been widely praised.

Comments: The book first opens with a woman, Libby, young thirties, only survivor of her family's brutal slaying, her mother and two older sisters, when she was seven years old. Her brother, Ben, fifteen at the time, was convicted and sentenced to life for the murders. Libby has now used up the "fund" that accumulated for her through her childhood as people donated to her plight. Now a mixed-up woman with no means of support, and no real desire to work, she is approached by a fan club of true crime fanatics who will pay her to get in touch with people who have first hand information about the crime and also are willing to buy any 'memorabilia' she may have. Libby figures this is better than working but when she attends her first convention of this underground club she is startled when she realizes they all have ideas as to who the real killer is, no one believes Ben is guilty, but she was there, she knows he is, doesn't she?

Told from several different viewpoints we follow Libby as she traces back her family history, while at the same time in alternating chapters we are returned to that fateful day and shown the events from both Ben and Libby's mother's point of view. Other participants of that day occasionally tune in and tell an incident in their own voice, as well. Very well-written, with a tension that continues to rise slowly through the book to the final reveals which are stunning. I did find myself managing to stay ahead of the plot, but just by a few paces, and it still did have a few surprises for me in the end.

Excellent storyline. The characters stories go from past to present tense which builds the suspense. Another great book by Gillian Flynn.

Gillian Flynn is amazing at making you think one thing and then completely change your mind the next. This is the second Gillian Flynn book I've read (the first being Gone Girl) and I definitely prefer Dark Places. The writing style is one of the best parts for me in the way that it went back and forth between three different perspectives. Flynn had me guessing the entire time. I could not put this book down. I'm exited to read Sharp Objects next.

I first read Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn and loved it, so had to read Dark Places. Amazing story, grabbed me from the first page. I really liked the way it was written from the timeline of two of the characters. I recommend this book to all readers who enjoy a good mystery, suspense and family drama.
