I still can’t believe it’s over already!
Proceed with caution as my thoughts may reveal spoilers if you haven’t read the book and/or watched the entire mini series.
Sharp Objects’ book to film adaptation has easily earned a spot in my top film adaptations of all time. It’s definitely one of those shows that I’ll watch again in a year or so to revisit my favorite book.
I was not disappointed with the bar/hotel scene between Camille and John in episode seven. Last time I posted about the series I mentioned that I was worried it was being left out. I guess I was just being too impatient.
Everything comes to a head as we learn the truth behind Marian’s death. I loved the scenes that showed Adora “caring for” Camille. It really brought the book and munchausen by proxy to life for me, and I couldn’t have asked for anything better.
I loved this series right up until the very last line, “Don’t tell Mama.”
As I thought about it, I realized we never see Amma killing her new friend at the very end after she’s moved. This was the only aspect that left me feeling a little let down.
A few days after I watched the finale, an IRL friend that read the book around the same time that I did a few years ago texted me to ask if I had been watching. We discussed it for a few minutes and then I let her know my feelings about leaving out the final murder. Thankfully she informed me that I was mistaken! I was in a hurry to shut off the TV and go to bed that night so I didn’t bother to watch anything after the credits. There’s a quick clip mid credit that is a must watch!! It all happens very fast and you may find that you need to watch it more than once (like I did), but it really wraps everything up in a neat little bow.
I absolutely recommend this book and mini series to any and all thriller fans.
