My Review of Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn – Two thumbs and two big toes up!

Gillian Flynn writes some really sick and twisted shit. I admire her all to pieces. It makes the stuff I write, titillating background for the bad guy or risqué situations, look tame in comparison. I’m not even going to compare us, I’d come up lacking.

Gone Girl is a love story, or is it. It’s about boy meets girl, boy loses girl, and girl comes back. In its simplest form you picture a Victorian romance filled with a lover’s quarrel, social innuendo causing separation, and a dreamy reconciliation—and you would be completely wrong. The boy, Nick Dunne, is a boyfriend, lover, friend, and husband trying to forget a cruel father and finding any woman who could live up to his loving mother. The girl, Amy Elliott Dunne, is the daughter of Rand and Marybeth, authors of the Amazing Amy series of children’s books. Books that shadow their daughter Amy’s life. Amy Dunne has grown up with the Amazing Amy books documenting her own life’s decisions and foreshadowing big events. A curse and a blessing. When Amy Dunne disappears one afternoon from her home leaving behind signs of a bloody struggle Nick Dunne is immediately looked upon as a person of interest. Nick tries to hold it together with help from his twin sister, Go, Amy’s parents, and even the lead investigator, Boney (Maroney), but the evidence keeps piling up against him. Where is Amy? America wants to know. Nick must find her, plead to her to come home, before he finds himself in prison.

This is a riveting book. Easy to read, easy to get caught up in. But I confess, I went from disliking one character during the first chapters (I’m not going to tell you which one because I don’t want to spoil it) to liking the character and disliking the other in the next set of chapters. In the end, I don’t think I’d like to be friends with either one of them.

Read this story. It’s too good to miss. And Gillian Flynn has done it again from Dark Places to Gone Girl. I love her writing!
