Dark Places take you to dark places, that’s for sure.
In this book, as in Gone Girl, people are sad, mean and horrible. There’s not much hope, life is an awfully dark place and no one loves you. Some people are greedy and want to take advantage of your misery. Sometimes even your parents are nasty people. The atmosphere in this book is definitely gloomy.
But there’s a little hope too. Sometimes injustice comes out in the wash and can be fixed.
But what can you do when you have been broken and confused for so many years? Can you ever be completely healthy and in peace? These questions came to my mind when I read this book. Past will always follow you, no matter what you do.
Gillian Flynn writes beautifully and tells many perspectives of the story side by side. There’s that feeling that you can almost see what’s going on, but just almost and you want to know more. That’s what makes you wanna read this book from page 1 to the end in one day.
Dark Places is not a pleasant book. I can’t say that I liked the characters. Still, I liked the book and I wanted to continue reading it. It wasn’t the greatest book of all times and it wasn’t as good as Gone Girl but it was worth reading.
Let’s wait and see how the movie turns out to be.
