Okay, I read Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn last month, and loved it so much I decided I had to read her other two books. I think Dark Places was better! This book is fiction but has the mundane details of real lives of characters that read like real people.
Ben Day is a 15-year-old in 1985, and life is messed up. His younger sister, Libby, is 7 and the story alternates between "Now" and 1985 and among three characters, for the most part: Ben, Libby, and their mother.
I'm not going to give away even a little of this story because that would be a disservice. If you love thrillers, mysteries, or just plain good books, read Dark Places.
A few words I'd use to describe Dark Places: scary, gross, realistic, hilarious
