    Much more than a thriller, Gillian Flynn continues to bring tales of crime and murder in new directions by focusing on dysfunctional families and their aftermath. Her older brother sentenced to life in prison 24 years ago for murdering their mother and two other sisters based on her testimony when she was seven, Libby Day is barely living, surviving on a fund established with donations she received in the immediate wake of the slaughter. The money is growing scarce when an underground club dedicated to serial killers contacts her, offering to pay her for memorabilia and information. They do not believe her brother committed the crimes for which he was convicted. Libby does not even want to contemplate the murders.Featuring a largely absentee alcholic father, a lonesome, troubled teenage boy who may or may not be a pedophile, the farm crisis of the 1980's when many farming families went bankrupt due to having taken on too much debt, and a protagonist who remains emotionally and psychologically stunted, Dark Places takes the reader exactly there. Drugs, devil-worship, molestation, alchohol, homelessness, abject poverty - this is not a cheery book. But it all works together so wonderfully, telling a tale both highly suspenseful and heartachingly poignant, full of social criticism on a society that could let its weakest members come to such ends. Read it aghast at the depravity, but absorb the malice which its characters bandy towards others, redirecting it towards the policies that let children starve. Ask yourself if you could make the same sacrifice.

    Synopsis: In the mid-80's, Libby Day's mother and two sisters were brutally murdered in their Kansas farmhouse. Libby's older brother Ben was charged & found guilty of the murders, found guilty in large part due to Libby's testimony in court. Now, 24 years later, Ben is still in jail, but Libby is struggling to make ends meet and in order to make some money, gets involved in the so-called Kill Club, a group of people obsessed with (in)famous past crimes and who are willing to pay money for any additional mementos or information regarding those crimes. As Libby gets sucked in, she begins to doubt her brother's guilt, and the story takes off from there.As with Flynn's other two novels, this one involves a lot of second guessing on the reader's part. Did Ben do it? Did he not? And as the story unfolds, lots of unpleasant stuff emerges. As I've stated before, Gillian Flynn knows how to write a disturbing novel. Oh, but she does it so well!I still think of Gone Girl as my favorite Gillian Flynn novel, but I've not yet read one of hers that I could easily put down or that I haven't enjoyed.

    Damn. This was a well-written book that I enjoyed reading. I mean, it’s all kinds of messed up, but it’s interesting, and I don’t think the outcome is at all obvious. It all makes sense, when you think about it.

    Libby Day is the sole surviving daughter of the Day family, three members of which were murdered in early January 1985. Her brother was convicted of the crime based partly on her testimony; she (a seven-year-old) testified that she saw him do it. As essentially an orphan (her dad faded in and out of her life) being raised by her aunt, she came into money at 18, thanks to people who had donated to a fund on her behalf when her story was in the news.

    The catalyst for the story in this book is that Libby is out of money now, and has to figure out how to get some. She’s never really worked, and doesn’t want to. She comes across a letter from one of those true crime groups to see if she’d be willing to talk to them, with the understanding that they would pay her. Seeing a way to make some money, she agrees, and the story goes from there.

    Like I said, this was a book that I enjoyed reading. It was a book that made me choose the elliptical over a run (because I can read on a machine), and the bus over a ride from a friend because that meant 30 uninterrupted minutes with the book. I also read and enjoyed Gone Girl, and I appreciate that Ms. Flynn creates characters that aren’t awesome, and that are sort of (really) flawed. It’s interesting.

    Dark Places is a well-crafted mystery with an interesting structure and certainly an apt title, because it's dark as hell. It's about Libby Day, who as a child survived the slaughter of her family in their Kansas farm house. Her brother Ben was convicted of the murders and has been languishing in prison, while outside groups increasingly protest his innocence. One of these groups approaches Libby, and offers to pay her to help prove Ben's innnocence. She testified against him at his trial, but she agrees to help because, frankly, she's broke. Also bitter, dishonest, lazy and antisocial.The narration alternates between Libby's point of view in the present day, her mother's point of view on the day of the murder, and Ben's point of view on the same day.Because of the back-and-forth narration, sometimes the reader knows things that Libby does not know, but that certainly doesn't take away from the suspense. To say that none of the characters are likable is an understatement. Most are despicable. There's a glimmer of redemption for Libby in the end, but no mawkish change of heart a la Scrooge. I rooted for her anyway, and grew to care about her. Sad to say, I identified with Libby. It's an excellent rendition of someone suffering from long-term depression.

    Maybe if the lead young female character were stronger or more well adjusted or even a little bit self-motivated I could have found this book to be entertaining. Not a thriller.

    4/5
    ‘The truly frightening flaw in humanity is our capacity for cruelty – we all have it.’Libby Day is the sole survivor of “The Satan Sacrifice of Kinnakee, Kansas” when her mother and two older sisters were murdered with an ax. She was only 7 years old. After accusing her brother Ben of committing the crime he is sent to prison with no real possibility of ever being released. Twenty-four years later Libby finds herself struggling financially after the trust fund to which people donated to help her cause has dwindled down to nothing. ‘The Kill Club’ is a group of individuals obsessed with particular crimes from over the years and there are several enthusiasts who are obsessed with not only the crime but of the innocence of her brother, Ben. Deciding she’ll resort to anything just as long as she gets paid she begins investigating the deaths of her family and realizes that the money isn’t the only incentive; she truly wants to know what happened that night she was left an orphan.Dark Places was a fantastically written thriller that was thoroughly engrossing. The audiobook has 3 separate narrators and each do a fantastic job of encouraging readers to continue this mesmerizing tale. The story alternates between snippets of Libby’s investigation (told in first person) and the rehashing of past events (told in third person from the POV of Libby’s mother and her brother, Ben) so that we’re slowly able to fit together the jumbled pieces of the puzzle. Did Ben truly commit the crime? Was he associated with the Devil? Was it actually their dead beat father? Or someone completely different? This is an incredibly alluring story that I could not put down. While clues are given and you think you’re starting to formulate, nothing is as it seems. That’s an easy enough statement to make in regards to any mystery thriller story but the answer to this one is truly unpredictable from anything I was expecting.‘I am, I guess, depressed. I guess I’ve been depressed for about twenty-four years. I can feel a better version of me somewhere in there – hidden behind a liver or attached to a bit of spleen within my stunted, childish body – a Libby that’s telling me to get up, do something, grow up, move on. But the meanness usually wins out.’Libby is a wonderfully jaded and emotionally hardened character that I couldn’t help but love. She’s perfectly imperfect and her flawed and bitter nature completely drew me to her. She’s earned every right to those emotions though and then some. Dark Places is full of extremely unlikable characters though and a few in particular did things that were completely unfathomable. The issues presented throughout this novel are often hard to stomach and were incredibly gruesome and disturbing. In specific there are Satanic animal sacrifices, excessive teenage drug use and teenage pregnancy and of course the less than pleasant mass murder by ax.Dark Places is a prime example of simple choices that can have a catastrophic domino effect on anything and everything from that point on. Peeling back the layers of this multifaceted tale of suspense is a total thrill-ride, as long as you can stomach the terror this story is drenched in.

    The end saved this for me for sure. I sort of felt like this book dragged and made Libby look so pathetic, but she certainly redeemed herself later on! Don't think GF is for me overall but glad I gave this a shot since Gone Girl was a huge flop for me.

    Please note: I read and reviewed this book in April 2009 from a copy provided by the Amazon Vine program in exchange for an honest review.My Synopsis: Libby survived when the rest of her family was murdered. Her brother was convicted and put in jail, based on testimony by Libby, and Libby has consequently lived on a trust fund put in place. Now that trust fund is starting to run dry and Libby - who has never worked and doesn't care to start now - is trying to come up with something to do to bring in some money. When a member of a club that likes to investigate old murders contacts her, offering her money to talk to them and research her own family's murder, she decides to go ahead. Of course, what she learns isn't necessarily what she wanted to know.My Thoughts: Libby isn't a character you necessarily will like, not at first. She is prickly, self-absorbed, lazy and whiny. But she starts to grow on you, and you start to understand where she is coming from after awhile. As she starts to delve into the tragedy that has shaped her entire life and being, she starts to change in some fundamental ways, and the way this is handled in the book is just fascinating to watch. The writing in this book is top-notch overall and I think it is, overall, a very well-done story.

    Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know about the Gone Girl sensation. And honestly, I hope you’ve checked out the book because it is one of my favorites (even the ending, which is controversial).So after loving Gone Girl, I picked up Sharp Objects, Gillian Flynn’s first book. It was good, but not anything I was ecstatic about.But recently I picked up Dark Places by Gillian Flynn, her second novel, and this one did not disappoint.The book opens up with a nursery rhyme. . . about a boy who murders his mother and two sisters, and the “baby” who gets away.For the full review, visit Love at First Book

    I picked this up with a bit of trepidation. Loved Gone Girl (who doesn't?) but Sharp Objects left me feeling ill. I've tended to avoid her back catalogue until now. Big mistake - this was an absolute humdinger. I love the way she packs every sentence with punch, personality and atmosphere. The grinding poverty of the central family, the character who throws all her small change over her shoulder into the back of the car because she can, the unfamiliar surroundings of an industrial unit full of murder-obsessed amateur detectives. Everything is presented in stark and unsavoury detail, right down to the "mouth-breathing" purchasers of Libby's book. It's a dark, sinister journey that creates considerable tension as it barrels towards its conclusion, impressive since the reader already knows the worst from the first chapter. I didn't guess the ending, but clues were left so a reader might guess it if they were perceptive enough. That's exactly the sort of twist I like best.

    This is Gillian Flynn's second novel, although I read it last of her 3. It is a huge step up from Sharp Objects, and I thought it was a fascinating read all the way through. I read it in a day. This book features another tragic anti-heroine that lived through a horrific childhood. In this case, her mother and 2 sisters were murdered when she was 7....ostensibly by her 15 year-old brother. She has not seen her brother once since his conviction and has lived on donations from sympathetic strangers and a book revisiting the murders, but is now out of funds. She responds to an inquiry from a "Kill Club"...a group dedicated to revisiting and "solving" old cases. This sets in motion a journey to discover what actually happened that night....events that she heard but did not actually see. The story is told by Libby, the girl in question, in the present; by her mother relating the last 24 hours of her life; and by her brother Ben describing those same 24 hours. One of the most interesting things to me was the hoopla surrounding the case and trial set in 1985. They referenced the McMartin Preschool case, and this story also involved devil worship, satanic rituals, the sacrificing of animals and child molestation.The McMartin Preschool was in the next town to mine, and the scandal broke when my daughter was preschool age. My pediatrician examined several children she believed were molested. We knew several of the families whose children were involved, and my daughter attended school with a few of the children. It was an unbelievable time...that preschool had a sterling reputation up until that time. After that there were stories that half of the preschools in the South Bay of SoCal were involved in a large cult and ring of pedophiles. I was never so happy to be part of a Co-Op preschool where all the parents took turns being the teacher's age. We knew out kids were safe!! This book does touch on the mistakes that were made by well-meaning therapists and law-enforcement in the way that children were interviewed and prepared for trial testimony. It was all too easy to signal what they wanted to hear, and all too easy for the kids to give them what they wanted....they were scared and confused, mostly.I agree with another reviewer that the ending was really a bit too neat. Too many loose ends just swept under the rug. One villian that came almost completely out of nowhere. Way too many unanswered questions. Still, it was an intense and interesting read. I did enjoy Gone Girl, and look forward to further refinement in Ms Flynn's writing.

    An excellent page turner! Dark Places isn't just any other mystery novel. It's well written and unpredictable, even though my guess early on as to what had happened was somewhat close. A fine story! And creepy, too. It's undoubtedly worth the read if you are a fan of modern literature!

    A reread; the bad thing about reading so many books (and/or getting old) is that many rereads are like a brand new thing!! Pitiful. I only remembered this one as being twisty and cool, and-- yeow. Twisty and cool. I know the new one (Gone Girl) has more press, but I like the lack of snarky knowingness and gothic horribleness of this one.

    This book is definitely on my list of the best books I've read all year. Often a second book is like the second night of a play - you've peaked & you need to move on to see any changes & progress. Other times, the second book builds on the promise of the first & exceeds it. This is one of those times.I loved Sharp Objects for all of the ways it refused to knuckle under to the convenient stereotypes that all women are caring & never violent & that all children are angelic & innocent. It was a gritty, compelling read & almost impossible to put down.Dark Places is just as gritty & compelling & perhaps more difficult to put down. Once again this novel defies stereotypes, creating an event (the slaughter of most of a family) that is even more complicated underneath the surface than it appears at first glance. Flynn relentlessly pursues the details of this event through the character of Libby, one of the only survivors. As Libby explores the events of that night & investigates the possibility that her brother, in prison for the crime upon her testimony, just might be innocent.In a tale whose point of view is a moving target, all the circumstantial pieces of the puzzle are intricately wound together until the climax. All of the characters are completely believable & all are flawed in one way or another. These are people who are living in true poverty & it's not picturesque. These are people who are struggling to put food in their bellies, to keep the heat on, to make it through one more day. In the aftermath of the killing, Libby Day's subsequent struggles are understandable, poignant & heart wrenching, while Libby herself is all sharp corners & thrown elbows - walking out the door with your favorite lipstick in her pocket. Flynn demonstrates the courage of her convictions through Libby, who is not ennobled by tragedy, but is not defeated by it either.The other voices in this novel are just as clear & just as complex & the story builds itself layer upon inexorable layer. The last third of the novel will keep you up all night, make you late to work, late for dinner, make you ride past your bus stop. &, best of all, the ending is completely credible & utterly satisfying.This is a dark & violent story that is filled with imagery that will stay with you long after you finish this book. It's brilliant & terrifying & I can't wait for Ms. Flynn's next book.

    Dark Places is the first novel by Gillian Flynn I've read and I must say that I loved it. The story was complex and creepy; it was hard for me to put it down. I didn't want to stop reading until I knew for sure what exactly happened that led to the deaths of a normal family. I know a lot of people said that the character of Libby Day was unlikeable but I couldn't help but like her! She had so many issues; she was rude, selfish, careless, and so many other things but I was rooting for her from the start. I wanted her to find out what really happened that night as badly as I wanted to know for myself. The fact that I couldn't figure out how the book was going to end was amazing since a lot of times I can at least semi-guess how something will end. I also loved how we were given different perspectives. One from Libby in present time, one from Patty (the mother) on the day of and before the murders, and then Ben (the brother/ suspected murderer) also in the past. These different perspectives helped clear up all the loose ends and made the ending feel complete. I can't wait to get the rest of Gillian Flynn’s books because one just isn't enough for me.

    This book is creepy and is not for everyone. At times this book this book can be spine-tingling and horrifying, and at others times it can be downright frustrating. Between obnoxious crusaders who think they know it all and spineless teenagers looking for thrills readers might want to put this book down early. DON'T! The ending rockets this book into an even more twisted place than it was before. I would recommend this book to readers who are patient.

    This had an engaging mystery and twisty resolution, but it dragged in places, and there were so few sympathetic characters! The theme--children who do things without really understanding them, start something with huge ramifications, and then have to live with the consequences/themselves--was really interesting but not developed enough; it really had to be mentioned by one of the characters for me to go, "Oh, I guess this does make sense here." Also, I had some problems with Ben's culpability at the end--he covered for the murderer of his family so that his child could...be brought up by a murderer? That does not sound like "wrongly convicted" to me, it sounds like "knowingly wrongly convicted, but responsible for other crimes, so he probably deserved it anyway."

    I have a meanness inside me, real as an organ.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.As Libby’s search takes her from shabby Missouri strip clubs to abandoned Oklahoma tourist towns, the narrative flashes back to January 2, 1985. The events of that day are relayed through the eyes of Libby’s doomed family members–including Ben, a loner whose rage over his shiftless father and their failing farm have driven him into a disturbing friendship with the new girl in town. Piece by piece, the unimaginable truth emerges, and Libby finds herself right back where she started–on the run from a killer. (from Amazon.com)Another strange entry by Gillian Flynn. Did her brother kill the family? Did he have a girlfriend who helped? Is there something else going on? Basically, who cares?

    I began reading this last year after finishing "Gone Girl," but it was very slow in comparison and I put it aside initially. That's the funny thing about books- their words change depending on what you are experiencing. I picked it up again after moving into our new place and I couldn't put it down. The story is unique in that none of the characters react in the way that I expected, and even after uncovering the truth, I had to go back and reread some as I thought I missed something.

    Good weekend read!

    Dark Places is a horror movie premise (grisly murders in a small town) spun out into a thoughtful and compelling tale of grinding poverty and madness. Twenty-five years after her mom and two sisters were murdered, Libby (seven at the time of the murders; now 32) begins to doubt everything she assumed was true about what happened. A first-person narrative of her scattershot investigation is countered by impassive third-person descriptions of the hours leading up to the murders.Gillian Flynn excels at evoking the characters of Libby, who is intent on drowning in her own antipathy and bad faith, and her brother, Ben, the alleged killer. Though Flynn never strives too hard to make them sympathetic, I still came to care about them. Flynn overdoes it a little on detail, settling too easily into describing minutia, but the novel is nonetheless dotted with beautiful observations about adolescence and poverty.The novel is solidly plotted, teasing hints revealed to the reader at just the right rate to make it a compulsive read. I must admit, I guessed the culprit fairly quickly, but there were enough surprises that my enjoyment of the novel wasn’t at all spoiled.All in all, Dark Places is a smart and well-thought-out thriller, with a surprising amount of quirkiness and twisted charm.
