Gone Girl - Gillian Flynn

Has anyone read or reading this? Its had great reviews.

I am about 80 pages in, its not gripping me and not feeling any empathy for the two main characters either.

Does it get better?

Gone Girl

I found it a very strange book, with an ending that annoyed me. There was a point, somewhere near the middle, where I was enjoying it, in the sense of wanting to find out what happened, but on the whole I would say it was a rather unsatisfactory read - the two main characters are equally unattractive, and some of the plot twists were too contrived. It seems to be getting great reviews though - but not from me!

Gone Girl

I have read it, but cannot remember much about it, which probably says it all!! I seem to remember that it certainly wasn't all it was hyped up to be.

Gone Girl - Gillian Flynn

Persevered to the end. What a depressing book?

A slow start, all that exposition shoehorned in.Clunky plot with some odd tangents not fully explained.Both lead characters totally self absorbed, he's a narcissist and she's a psycho. A toxic combo. I did not like them but were they interesting...not sure. Its so overwritten and pretentious.

The ending is ambiguous and that seems to be the main point of contention.

In my opinion Gerry don't bother, read a good scandinavian thriller instead!
