Gone Girl: The Book Review

Gone_Girl_(Flynn_novel)

WHERE DO I BEGIN? I finished this book recently and I can’t stop thinking about it.  This book contained so many twists and turns and mind-fucks that I couldn’t think straight after I finished it.

At first glance, Gone Girl is your typical true crime novel. Wife disappears, husband becomes the main suspect, blah blah blah. However, Gone Girl is a dark, twisted, depraved look into psychopathy and chronicles one of the most fucked up marriages I have ever read about.

This book was spectacular to say the least. One of the best books I’ve ever read. I would give a detailed summary of this book but where’s the fun in that? Read this book if you want your mind blown. However, Gone Girl is at times, dark and sickening and not for the faint hearted.

I’d recommend this book for fans of psychological thrillers. If you love books with unreliable narrators, psychopaths and more twists and turns and bombshells than a season of Revenge, then Gone Girl is for you. If not, read something else because you will either hate this book, or become traumatized.

Kudos to Gillian Flynn. The only thing I’m afraid of is the movie. I hope that the ending isn’t changed too much. Also, a note to Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike or as they are in the movie, Nick and Amy Dunne; Don’t mess this up.
