Books move to the top of my reading list by how often I come across the title. Gone Girl came highly recommended by ladies discussing their favorite recent book club discussions. I then found it odd when a sportscaster mentioned he was reading it during his newscast. Bam! It now moved to the top of my list.
I couldn’t put it down. I couldn’t wait to hate Nick Dunne more and more. Yes, even though I now know, I still hate him. The reader’s group guide at the back of the book asks “do you like Nick or Amy”? My question is, how could you like either one?
Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
The story is only OK, but the twists and turns will keep you glued to the book.
Now that I’ve completed the book, I can’t wait to see the movie to find out if hating Ben Affleck is possible.
