My Review of "Gone Girl"
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This was a very enjoyable read. I absolutely devoured it in two days. The first day I spent with Diary Amy and her cheating pathetic murderous husband. The second day I spent it with very different people.
The treasure hunt was an especially ingenious device, first endearing and then repulsing the reader from the protagonist. I loved how the same trick that was played on Nick also seemed to work on the reader (at least me).
What I didn't understand, what seemed out of character, is how Amy could drop her guard so easily in the cabin park. I also believed that the only murdered person in the story was too one-dimensional. Aside from these two qualms, though, the story was tremendous, nervous, enormously suspenseful.
Thank you for such a brilliant piece of work! A real eye-opener!
