I loved this book. It was complex and was always one step ahead of the reader. There were times when I thought I knew what was going on but then there would be another twist! I can't wait to read more of her books!

Just got to read the book recently and wow, I loved it! But then again I do love psychological thrillers where things are not quite as they seem - far from it in fact. I do believe the author did a conscious choice there in creating some unlikable characters, but I had no problems with it.

Btw did anyone watch the movie with Ben Afleck? I enjoyed both and thankfully the major plot points remained, although some details were, of course, different, due to time constraints, etc.

I absolutely loved this book, it was actually the book that made me start looking more into this genre, which is also my favourite genre now. I love a book that keeps you guessing and this just fits the bill, with its mystery and its constant layering of the story it was just a perfect read for me.

I really like this book. I loved the suspense and the twists and turns made the book great. I was disappointed with the ending slightly.

I think Gone Girl is one of the best books I've ever read. It's not my favorite, but it is incredibly good. When you start reading, you don't know the storm that will come for you. Amy's character is so twisted and intelligent. She looks so composed and good-hearted when in reality she's anything but that.
I've read other books by the author and I didn't find them as brilliantly written as Gone Girl. This is one of a kind.

I really loved this book. It was suspenseful with so many twists and turns, and it had a very deep and detailed characters. I really couldn't complain about anything in this book. I loved all of it.

I love this book and want to read it again and again just because. However, every time i finish reading it, I always want the ending to change. Brilliant piece of art, though. Can't deny that.
