Review: Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn


I just finished and, wow. That was one crazy, $@*! -up story.

I loved it.

I really disliked both Amy and Nick, neither of them really endeared themselves to me but it is the situations that Flynn puts them in, the way the story is told from their different perspectives and the pure craziness of it all that really grabbed me. I didn't see the twist coming, I didn't predict the ending. Like Nick feels sorry for Amy, I feel sorry for both of them. Talk about not being able to leave a bad marriage. This one takes the cake.

Have you read it? What did you think? I can see why some people love it and others hate it. This one is definitely not for everyone. We are going to have so much fun talking about this one in book group. I cannot wait!

  1. Sadly, I didn't have the best experience with this one. It was chosen for my in-person book group's discussion and I went to the meeting without having finished. Needless to say, I knew far too much about the plot and just found myself annoyed with my reading. Blah!

    1. Yeah, I will be interested to here what the other ladies in my book group thought about it. I have a feeling there may be a few who did not enjoy it, as well.

    2. My book group was a mixed bag of opinions, but WOW was it discussable! Plenty to talk about even if they hated it! :)

    3. That's what I am thinking. It will make for a fun night. We usually try to bring food/drinks that relate to the book somehow…trying to think what would be best for this one.

  2. I thought I'd caught the big twist early only to discover, when that twist was revealed fairly early on that Flynn was just beginning. You do have to be able to suspend disbelief but I was willing to do that for the great ride.

    1. The twist definitely surprised me. And the ending- goodness, it really made me realize how thankful I am that the hubby and I are happily married and not anything like these crazy people.
