Book Overview

Marriage can be a real killer. One of the most critically acclaimed suspense writers of our time, New York Times bestseller Gillian Flynn takes that statement to its darkest place in this unputdownable masterpiece about a marriage gone terribly, terribly wrong. The Chicago Tribune proclaimed that her work "draws you in and keeps you reading with the force of a pure but nasty addiction." Gone Girl's toxic mix of sharp-edged wit and deliciously chilling...

Crazy book!!

This is the craziest book I’ve ever read! The first half was good but I didn’t connect with it as I am not married and the first half is about their marriage. Then there’s a HUGE and unexpected twist and the story takes off. Such an unpredictable book

First half of the book ruined it for me.. **SPOILERS**

OK.. I really would like to give this book 2.5 stars but that's not an option. Here is the deal. This book does not get any type of interesting until about 214 pages in. Which is why it took me so long to read. I almost stopped and said forget it. This is also far from a thriller in my opinion. I guess you could call it a domestic mystery maybe? Amy is a psycho which is what she was supposed to be portrayed as. The fact that she got away with everything she has done to her husband, her ex's, friends and police is ridiculous. She should have went to jail, Nick keeps the baby and rides off into the sunset. The ending made me so mad!! Who ends a book like that ? The day before the baby is born?? That's it.. I don't want to give too much away. I do not recommend this book unless you have some quarantine time to kill. Very upset. This book is way over hyped.... on to the next one.

amazing

Been meaning to read for awhile, and I’m so glad i have. It’s the kind of book that you can’t put down. I’d love a second book about their lives afterward.

The book was great, but condition wasn’t near like new.

I love this book! I’ve already read it but wanted a copy of my own for my collection. I went to read it again and saw a lot of orange finger stains on the pages. So gross :/

Gone Girl should be permanently gone from your book case.

This is the first book that I have read by Gillian Flynn. To be totally honest, I hated the book. The book is labeled psychological suspense or drama. To the book's credit, It does live up to those categories. Yet, I have never read such a book that portrays such a convoluted, messed-up picture of a marriage, in my life. Both the characters are psychological messes and it is the mutual mind-frame that attracts them to each other. The book is fast-paced and doesn't give the reader time to come up for air. I found the book very depressing, sad and disturbing. The book seemed to go back and forth between her side of the story and the husbands. By the end of the book, there is a sense of palpable relief that the drama is finally finished. There is no sense of hope in this book, no happy ending, and no redeeming actions by anyone. My sympathies were with the police who were investigating this mess. Anyone who is engaged, thinking about marriage or newly married should stay away from this book. To the author's credit, the book does draw you in quickly and in some ways, you are hooked enough to stay with the book until the end. But the real question for me is: drawn into what? I can see why it became a bestseller for some people. The book is definitely not my choice for a "good read".

Big Disappointment

I don't know what all the hype is about this book. The characters were unlikable and it could have been written in half the words. I found myself losing interest and finally just skipped to the end of the book, reading the last two chapters, and setting it back on the shelf.

Amazing - Better than the movie!

I always prefer to read the books than watch the movies. It gives so many more details and information about the characters and better twists and turns. I would recommend still reading this even if you seen the movie. It explains so much more about the main characters.

I wish I’d read it before I saw the movie

I saw the movie first which may have been a mistake. I knew the big plot twists before reading so that kind of ruined it. However, I really liked the movie so I expected to still get really into the book, but for the most part I was just bored. It did at least answer some questions I thought the movie failed to address, at least, and you get a little more into Amy’s head (Book Amy is more frightening than Movie Amy).

Love it

this book is amazing, keeps you on your toes for sure

So amazing

If you're an avid reader and get kind of sick of predictable plots... look no further! I get kinda bored sometimes with typical plot lines. I could NOT predict what happens in this book - it caught be off guard TWICE. If you've seen the movie, i'm not sure how you'll like it. But if you haven't - definitely a book to read!

good read

I couldn't put this book down, even though I like the end, it could have been more satisfying
