The first rule of Gone Girl is not to talk about Gone Girl. That’s pretty much it because if you talk about it to someone who hasn’t read it, it ruins it for them. And I SO WANT TO TALK ABOUT IT!
Brief synopsis: Amy disappeared from her home on the 5th anniversary of her marriage to Nick and he’s the prime suspect. It doesn’t look good for Nick, especially when you read Amy’s diary. She does not paint a pretty picture of their marriage.
Since I can’t say much, I will copy my Goodreads notes:
Page 84 19.0% "I hate this guy. What an a-hole."
Page 162 38.0% "I'm thinking lots of bad words. The baddest words!!!"
Page 237 55.0% "Ha!"
Page 432 100.0% "That was crazy, dudes."
There is quite a gap between “Ha!” and “That was crazy, dudes” because a lot of stuff happened and I changed my mind about a lot of things. It was crazy. I do have to say that at the very last page, I shook my head like I had been slapped. It just… never mind.
I thoroughly enjoyed Gone Girl, once the first twist happened. It was a bit slow at first but then, whoa! I was giddy because it was so twisted. Nick and Amy’s voices in all their incarnations were well done.
I’m stealing this lolcat from Raych because it sums up my feelings for Gillian Flynn.
Yeah, that was good!
