Lately? The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold. Read it in paper years ago, got the ebook to reclaim shelf space and was going to just do a quick check for typos, then I got engrossed.
I thought Gone Girl
was a better read than Dark Places
, but still think Sharp Objects
to be Flynn's best. Gone Girl
was incredibly well done as an audiobook - real five star jobs by the narrators!
I listened to The Lovely Bones
read by Alyssa Bresnehan, who captured Suzy's voice perfectly; I understand the edition narrated by the author herself isn't nearly as good. By the time Suzy tells her story a bit into the book, Bresnahan's friendly, calm tone makes that graphic account quite bearable.
