Gone Girl: A Review By Dana

Gillian Flynn’ psychological thriller, Gone Girl, is (as is most often the case in this genre) an exercise in determining what is real and what is not.  The author, via chapters with alternating viewpoints of he said she said, walks you through the thoughts of two people from the time they first met to a time where their 5 year old marriage is in trouble. Can it be that the“Amazing Amy”, as she is referred to in her parent’s somewhat fictional books,  is not so amazing anymore? Or is it her husband, Nick’s fault that they are facing such trying times at this point in their marriage?

One day Amy is missing, the scene appears to have been purposefully staged, and her husband (as is often the case) is the prime suspect.  As you are reading, you are obsessively questioning what is really going on, who to believe, and if in fact her husband actually was involved in her murder. The author quite shrewdly takes you on a ride with your belief system, constantly shifting you back and forth. Evidence of manipulation, extraordinary intelligence, premeditation, adultery and deceit as well as serious mental illness is all in the mix.

This book is creatively witty and clever and a true page turner.  As is true of a good psychological thriller, it spooked the hell out of me!

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!

Yes she was on The View! You can watch even if you have not finished the book. THERE ARE NO SPOILERS! This book is going to make one good movie. It looks like Reese Witherspoon will be playing Amy. Who would you like to see play Nick?
