5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing (seems a fitting title...), 17 Mar. 2013
This review is from: Gone Girl (Kindle Edition)
Recently, I have found it hard to trust the book charts (50'shades anyone...) but on this occasion I took a gamble and having read no reviews or summaries, I gave Gone Girl a chance. I completely, honestly urge everyone to do the same. This book is so well written, and covers so many unique character personalities that I kept having to remind myself that this was a work of fiction. The plot unravels so majestically that I genuinely couldn't put the novel down, and the shocks in the text were exactly like- unexpected, earth-shattering shocks. If great, modern, suspenseful literature is something you crave, then you NEED to read this book.

I was given it as a gift at the weekend and could not put it down, or get the characters out of my head when I did... A thoroughly good read...

Did we read the same book? It was a good read in the beginning, but I didn't come across 'unexpected earth shattering shocks'? For someone who doesn't read much or watch films or TV I would imagine it's surprising, but this plot has been used many times. The author writes well and does keep the reader gripped.............. until the awful ending.

What's so awful about the ending? I thought it was eaxctly what the characters deserved.

My ulitmate feeling was that they deserved each other.

Quite right, Naj - the ending! Preposterous!

In reply to an earlier post on 30 Apr 2014 18:18:50 BDT
So, you do not like clever endings but prefer the more mundane,predictable ones.Fine.

Naj "Did we read the same book?" A feeling I often get when reading such disparate (or do I mean desperate?) opinions.
