This month’s book was…… Dark, Twisted, Unpredictable

Page-turner, Deceitful, Suspenseful…...Absolutely!

Very unlikeable characters……..No doubt about that!

Ending definitely disturbing……Yes! On the other hand..what ending? I turned the page thinking there was another chapter!

Hated The Ending…….. I was disappointed in the ending also.

Plot twists galore…….Yes, yes, yes

Crazy, Sick, Scarey……That it is.

Riveting, Disturbing, Unfulfilling ……….Hmmmm…… unfulfilling……I can see that too.

Kept me reading……..Me too!

What three words would you use to describe Gone Girl?



  1. Page-turner, Deceitful, Suspenseful

  3. I don’t know …. but I like the idea of 3 words describing a book. Susan, I will be going home to be with mom soon. I will have some time to read. Any heads up on next month’s book?

    • Hi Barbara. I know that I could not put this book down. I assume when you say unfulfilling you are talking about the end. Ar first I was really disappointed in the end….now I am thinking that it really does make sense.I hate to say more because I don’t want to spoil it for anyone. I would love to talk to you about it!

  10. It reminded me of the tv show Dateline. Her side of the story, his side. Who is the bad guy? I didn’t like the ending. Cathy

    • Hi Cathy! i have never seen Dateline, but I certainly appreciate the her side, his side. It seems that you are not alone on the ending. So much to discuss! Have you read any really good books lately?

  11. Kept me reading! I listened to the audio book. The actors did a good job portraying the characters. The plot was very clever up to the ending which I didn’t find very satisfying.

    • Hi Moondance! Yes, it certainly kept me reading. I am sorry that I missed this month’s meeting (due to an out of town wedding). I am hoping to convince someone into writing a post about everyone’s reaction to the book….especially the end!
