Dark Places - Gillian Flynn

Libby Day was seven when her mother and two sisters were murdered in “The Satan Sacrifice of Kinnakee, Kansas.” As her family lay dying, little Libby fled their tiny farmhouse into the freezing January snow. She lost some fingers and toes, but she survived–and famously testified that her fifteen-year-old brother, Ben, was the killer. Twenty-five years later, Ben sits in prison, and troubled Libby lives off the dregs of a trust created by well-wishers who’ve long forgotten her.

The Kill Club is a macabre secret society obsessed with notorious crimes. When they locate Libby and pump her for details–proof they hope may free Ben–Libby hatches a plan to profit off her tragic history. For a fee, she’ll reconnect with the players from that night and report her findings to the club . . . and maybe she’ll admit her testimony wasn’t so solid after all.

    I thought the book was extremely well-written and the author's descriptions of characters and settings superb. I like reading a good "dark" book occasionally and would choose
    Gillian Flynn whenever that mood strikes me again.

    After a lively discussion, I rated the book a C. In retrospect perhaps I should have given the author more credit for making us experience those dark places.

    While I (personally) would give the book itself only 2.5 stars, the meeting was quite good, as always. A rousing discussion on descriptors and dark and depressing characters.

    I'm sorry but I can't make the meetings until my work schedule changes again (every 3 months or so). Right now I have to work on Mondays and won't get out of work until 6:30. Lola
