Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn Review

I didn’t really know what to expect from this book, but I was really pleasantly surprised! I read the back of the book when I was in Waterstones and I had an idea of what it was going to be about – but I didn’t expect it on that scale!
This book is real brain teaser! You think that one thing is going to happen, but the complete opposite does. I was completely intrigued when I was reading this, I didn’t want to put it down.
It’s quite hard to write about this, without spoiling it because if you say one thing, then most of the story is spoilt! So I will try to keep it to the minimum!

It is basically about a man that comes home from work, to see that his front door is left wide open, the furniture inside has been thrown around, the iron is left on and his wife is missing. He goes to the police and starts a search to find his wife but it gets made out that he has killed her. That’s where the main story starts and there’s so many twists to it, that you really won’t expect them!

It is a really good book to read, and I’d definitely recommend it! Much better than I thought it would be!
I have also heard that there’s a possibility that it’s going to be turned into a film too.
4 out of 5.

    I read this over the summer because everyone else was 🙂 It was crazy how I felt so strongly one way until about halfway though and then just had the rug pulled from under me, and made me do a complete 180 and feel even more strongly about it 😀 Very skilful!

    Yes yes, it’s a wonderful book! So clever and so completely out there. Didn’t end how I thought it would. Kudos to Flynn!

    Absolutely awesome and so difficult to judge who is better (amongst the husband and wife). This book kept me totally hooked till the end. And after reaching the end I still wanted to know what is going to happen now how will the lead pair fare further.

Let me know what you think!
