Ride and Read: “Sharp Objects”

Summer 2014: Add Some Danger to Your Commute

Join the Commuter Book Club in reading (or listening to) “Sharp Objects,” by Gillian Flynn (author of “Gone Girl“).  It’s the kind of book that makes metro the stops fly by, but doesn’t take you six weeks to finish.

Meetup and Chat: Thursday,  August 21, 7:00 p.m. at Le Pain Quotidien in Clarendon.

  • Think you won’t make it, but wish you could? Join us on twitter – we’ll live tweet the discussion using #aplrideread.


Sharp Objects
by Gillian Flynn

Returning to her hometown after an eight-year absence to investigate the murders of two girls, reporter Camille Preaker is reunited with her neurotic mother and enigmatic, thirteen-year-old half-sister as she works to uncover the truth about the killings.

    I think it would be great if a selection for the ride and read would have a listening option. It does not appear there is an E audio version, and the dc format has been lost for years.
