Leslie So, I saw this is coming to HBO (didn't know it wasn't til June til just recently), and scrambled to read the book. Just finished. Enjoyed the slight "twist" ending. Not too thrilled about the casting (in comparison to the book -- but for the series, it looks okay).

Anyone else going to watch?

Hey Leslie, I did not know that was coming to be a series and I have not read the book. (Seems Flynn should be in our 'always adapted authors' section! she's on a role!)

I saw the Gone Girl film (Affleck fan) and didnt like it, though I started the book and am ACTUALLY enjoying it! (will let u know how i go)
Saw the HORRIBLE FILM - Dark Places (and was so horrible i would never even bother 2 try the book at ALL)
but this Series - just by the trailer I would say looks good and I will watch it! (maybe we can buddy up? :) So it will be a good 3-4 mths assume before its out?

Yeah, I don't know if I saw it on imdb or read about it in an article, but I know I saw someplace that it said June 2018. I saw a tv ad/promo showing what all is coming HBO, which is what prompted me to read it.

I didn't know Dark Places was a movie! Haven't read that book yet (and not sure i want to!)

What didn't you like about Gone Girl movie? I really loved the book, and read it before seeing the movie (actually, scrambled to read that one the week before it came out!) :D

I'm currently reading Farenheit 451, as that's coming to HBO too (although I know it's already been made into a movie...from the 60's??)

I just watched the trailer you posted and that's for Showtime!!! WHAT??? 2 versions??? Here's the HBO one (from imdb) and if you scroll down, you'll see Release Date of June 2018.

We don't get Showtime, so I won't be able to see that one. Wild.

Kerry Casey (caseykerry) | 249 comments I'm pretty sure that' s the same show? (One series)

I dont know, about Gone Girl, Im not a fan of the actress but my mother funny enough in the UK msg me last night and said have you seen a film with Ben Affleck called Gone Girl? I think you will like it, (lol) and 'Bens wife is a bitch in it' ) Hhahaha (shes 70) so she loved it. I will give it another go.

Yes Dark PLaces- a boring, dark film starring Charlize Theron and the 'twist' is rubbish. Lol.

But I will watch this Sharp Object (let me know when it starts) Though WHY a psych would be released from a mental instituation to then go help others is a bit odd lol
