Didn't like the ending I feel that the book rewards bad behavior and sends the wrong message. That is ok to abuse and destroy peoples lives and be rewarded with a baby and the husband (who's weaknesses makes me sick) Read it because my son's girlfriend really loved it. Wish I hadn't
If you want to keep up with the craziness of the Dunne couple in "Gone Girl" by Gillian Flynn, you should probably pick up this review to read along with it. Simply put, I loved "Gone Girl." It's just the type of psychological thriller that gets my mind racing. But no one person can sleuth alone and have fun doing so, right? Even a solitary act such as reading can be made more pleasurable by a constant companion--especially if the companion is a thorough, well-organized book review. This review really made me step back and question the motives of the two main characters, even more so than the novel itself. I also loved the elaboration on the author's writing style; it really made me trust that the author of the review knew enough about literature to guide me along to the end of this plot-twister.
As a reader, once in a while I discover a book that is so incredibly well written that I simultaneously fly through its pages and yet go slowly to prevent its end. Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn is definitely one of those books. This murder mystery is plotted with such care that each time you think you've got a character or scenario figured out, there's another twist in the plot. It seems like a cut and dry murder case in which the beautiful wife ends up dead leaving the husband as the likely suspect. That's when the thrilling tale departs from anything ordinary or predictable and so begins the wild ride to unveil the truth. After reading this great analysis of Gone Girl I started suggesting it to other readers as a companion to the novel. The character reference list allowed me to keep the players straight while the story unfolded which was incredibly helpful as I reread the book. I also enjoyed the narrative notes that provided a sort of step by step timeline as the story is told...
