Gone Girl Gillian Flynn read online review & book description:

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • The “mercilessly entertaining” (Vanity Fair) instant classic “about the nature of identity and the terrible secrets that can survive and thrive in even the most intimate relationships” (Lev Grossman, Time).

NAMED ONE OF THE MOST INFLUENTIAL BOOKS OF THE DECADE BY CNN • NAMED ONE OF TIMETEN BEST FICTION BOOKS OF THE DECADE AND ONE OF ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLYS BEST BOOKS OF THE DECADE

NAMED ONE OF THE TEN BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY Janet Maslin, The New York Times • People • Entertainment Weekly • O: The Oprah Magazine • Slate • Kansas City Star • USA Today • Christian Science Monitor

On a warm summer morning in North Carthage, Missouri, it is Nick and Amy Dunne’s fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick’s clever and beautiful wife disappears. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn’t doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams about the slope and shape of his wife’s head, but passages from Amy's diary reveal the alpha-girl perfectionist could have put anyone dangerously on edge. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media—as well as Amy’s fiercely doting parents—the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he’s definitely bitter—but is he really a killer? 

NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY San Francisco Chronicle • St. Louis Post Dispatch • Chicago Tribune • HuffPost • Newsday

“Absorbing . . . In masterly fashion, Flynn depicts the unraveling of a marriage—and of a recession-hit Midwest—by interweaving the wife’s diary entries with the husband’s first-person account.”New Yorker

“Ms. Flynn writes dark suspense novels that anatomize violence without splashing barrels of blood around the pages . . . Ms. Flynn has much more up her sleeve than a simple missing-person case. As Nick and Amy alternately tell their stories, marriage has never looked so menacing, narrators so unreliable.”The Wall Street Journal

“The story unfolds in precise and riveting prose . . . even while you know you’re being manipulated, searching for the missing pieces is half the thrill of this wickedly absorbing tale.”O: The Oprah Magazine

    I have never written a review before. This is my first and it’s because the book was so astounding. This book has so many twists and turns and the author weaves you through them flawlessly and guides you to what she wants you to feel at that point in the book. You hate a character until you don’t, you love others and she plays with the antagonist and protagonist roles in a way I have never seen done before. They are fluid. Highly recommend to anyone that likes a page turner. My only critique is that I felt empty at the very end. Left wanting more. Or a different ending. But the author earned the right throughout this masterpiece to end it anyway she pleased and while it wasn’t the ending I hoped for it was true to the story. I hope this helps., if you are reading my review. If you are undecided please let me help you. Read this book.

    I have loved reading from a very young age. I found Flynn’s style to be painfully boring to read, despite my anticipation of the dramatic story unfolding. I grew tired of trying to finish it, and I’m never one to stop reading a book before completion.
  • ALMOST MASTERPIECE

    A good book, probably the best book, she will write. It depicts Amy as a suave and sophisticated New Yorker, who is slightly anti-American, in regards to traditional values, and a little too much focus on PC for my liking, with a steady jaundiced eye towards those people, who love God and Country. An example, as Amy points out in reference to a female, whom she meets duirng her travels: “Her bookshelves were stocked with coffee-table crap: We Remember 9/11.” Also, at times, the italics duirng a conversation are not clearly evident, if the speaker is talking to themselves or out loud. It could have been a masterpiece, she missed the mark though.
  • I still hate the ending

    It's thrilling and shocking book with some shocking twist and turns. Although I still hate the ending.

    I found the writing to be extremely juvenile. Every time I put this book down I dread picking it back up. I love reading, but this book felt like such a waste of time.
