5I m never getting married I can t risk this This book is such a steaming pile of shit for so many reasons and hands down the worst book I have ever read There is a huge cloud of smug over Gone Girl This was such an unpleasant read that I started taking notes of all the ridiculous parts It also didn t help matters that I figured out the ending before page 100.
There are lots and lots of f bombs and swearing which says a lot since I cuss like a sailor For me to pick up on that means it s excessive and adds nothing to the story Then there s the issue with our characters The husband is Captain Douchebag and the wife is beyond batshit crazy The story of a missing wife gets so ridiculous and over the top that the ending could only be equally as absurd.
Things I absolutely loathed about the book using The Giving Tree as a Marriage Can Be A Real KillerOn 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 From Their Rented McMansion On The Mississippi River 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 As The Cops Close In, Every Couple In Town Is Soon Wondering How Well They Know The One That They Love With His Twin Sister, Margo, At His Side, Nick Stands By His Innocence Trouble Is, If Nick Didn T Do It, Where Is That Beautiful Wife And What Was In That Silvery Gift Box Hidden In The Back Of Her Bedroom Closet With Her Razor Sharp Writing And Trademark Psychological Insight, Gillian Flynn Delivers A Fast Paced, Devilishly Dark, And Ingeniously Plotted Thriller That Confirms Her Status As One Of The Hottest Writers AroundOne 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 Prose Creates A Nerve Fraying Thriller That Confounds You At Every Turn Gillian Flynn I m pretty selective about new releases, but Gone Girl s opening about a man studying his wife s skull in bed and unique alternating POV structure promised a kind of He Said, She Said Crimes and Misdemeanors, a The Secret History with a sense of humor I did really like the structure, along with some of the zingers, and some of the saucier images, but that s about it.
From the Kushner epigraph to the name checking of Noel Coward on page 68 to the use of Pygmalion as a verb 20 pages after that a synonym for to tidy, apparently , Flynn signals that she aims to create that most perverse of marriages here a literary beach read Instead of the best of both worlds, Gone Girl is the worst of both worlds as pretentious and unnecessarily meta and overwritten as the worst overhyped literary debut and with dialogue and characters as cartoonish and The first person narrative meant being in the thoughts of 2 very sick people the whole book and it left me feeling yucky The author portrayed the minds of sadistic, narcissistic sociopaths making it a very dark book And for some reason, I actually didn t find anything that happened a surprise That made the story boring which may also have been because I didn t like or care about either of the unrepentant, unenlightened, and self absorbed characters I just couldn t relate Even getting some background on their families didn t engender any sympathy in me for them It is not a satisfying read because there is no hope for these characters, no redemption, no justice for those murdered As I said Yucky.
This book was just way too much fun and I mean that in a good way I m taking a leisurely drive down the garden path of the story, when BAM right in the middle it makes a u turn and we are on the damn highway doing 90 miles an hour commonly referred to as a plot twist Sweet Mother of Mercy There is not much to say without the risk of giving up some detail that s best left secret Soooo many time I wanted to just take one little peek at the end to see what happens to Nick and Amy But I didn t I survived the heart pounding suspense and made it to the end of a very satisfying read.
I must, must must check out books by Ms FlynnSee all my reviews here Quite simply, this is one of the best novels of the year It s a thriller in the best tradition of Alfred Hitchcock and layered with brilliantly written characters it s the kind of book that s nearly impossible to put down The surprises and twists keep the reader guessing up until the final page, and my first thought upon finishing the novel was that I wanted to read it a second time.
Oh, COME ON.
Everyone and I do mean EVERYONE loves this hateful book Kind of makes me weep for the future It s not even all that clever It must be the depravity of it all Suckers.
AND, If I ever read the words fucking bitch again it will be too soon.
As seen on The ReadventurerI am giving Gone Girl 3 stars, but only begrudgingly In my mind, any book that takes me 3 months and 20 different tries to read is not worth 3 i liked it on Goodreads stars, especially a book written by an author I already respect And I am not kidding, for me the first half of Gone Girl was a PURE TORTURE to read.
Amy Dunn disappears on the day of her 5th wedding anniversary All gradually uncovered evidence suggests that her husband, Nick, is somehow involved Did he kill her Was she kidnapped What happened to Amy One thing is clear, Nick and Amy s marriage wasn t as perfect as everybody thought.
The first part of the novel is all about the investigation into Amy s disappearance, slow unraveling of Nick s dirty secrets, reminiscing about the troubled history of Nick and Amy s marriage as told i
