I’m only doing a quickie review of Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn (no spoilers of course) because I read this book with the amazing Love at First Book Club participants during the month of November.
Gone Girl was such a great book! Literally I was being lied to the entire time by the characters, which was such a mind game, but also made the book amazing because I had NO idea what was going to happen!
Now, the ending. . . well, a lot of my friends, ones who I value their bookish opinions, hated the ending. But then a good number of people also enjoyed the ending. I have to say that the ending is messed up. But that made me love it! It was so not Hollywood-like with the cheery, we all go home happy, that it was amazing.
Whether you enjoy or hate the ending, I think that you will enjoy reading the book as a whole. I also advise you to have a friend who has read it or is reading it at the same pace as you to communicate with throughout your reading of the novel. Seriously, it’s the only way I survived (thank you to Katie for all of our continuous texting back and forth).
On a side note. . . the inside of the dust jacket is neon pink/orange and such a terrible distraction when reading. I actually had to remove the dust jacket because I could not concentrate on the story! But once I took it off, it was fine!
What thriller have you read that had you on the edge of your seat with its twists and turns?
