Gone Girl made me think outside the box. It truly shows that you can't judge a book by its cover. Plus, people can be really good at covering up their less desirable characteristics.

If it's just as good as the movie, I want to read it. I love the twist in the story.

Definitely a 4 out of 4 stars for me. I thought it was well written and it held my interest throughout.
Anyone who says they have only one life to live must not know how to read a book.

I read this quite a while ago. It left a lasting impression. Here I am 4 years later thinking about the twists and turns...and wondering if Gillian Flynn has written anything lately. Guess I'll go look.
