Watching Sharp Objects? Is it possible that you haven’t read  Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl or seen the movie starring Rosamund Pike and Ben Affleck? Gillian Flynn’s popular thriller made it on PBS Great American Read, meaning it’s one of the Top 100 books on your fellow American booklover’s lists. 

Now that Flynn’s Sharp Objects starring Amy Adams is airing on HBO, you might want to watch—or rewatch—the book2movie that put the author on that revered Top 100 list. 

Like it or not Flynn’s Gone Girl has a place alongside classics like Mary Shelley's Frankenstein and Steinbeck’s The Grapes of Wrath. The truth is the list is very egalitarian: juicy fiction like Fifty Shades of Grey and romantic reads like The Notebook take their place alongside the greatest stories ever told vis a vis The Picture of Dorian Grey, The Sun Also Rises and Moby Dick. The book has been published in translation around the world.

Let's watch a trailer. 

Gone Girl is available to stream on Amazon Prime, YouTube,
Google Play, Vudu and iTunes
