Gone Girl paperback,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Gone Girl (Paperback)
I originally bought this book in March started to read it and gave up after fifty pages, took it on holiday in Oct and as I didn't have anything else to read and forced myself to read it. I was expecting a gripping book ( like Girl With Dragon Tattoo), but alas found the Authors American style of writing not an easy read and several times having put it down, wondered whether I could be bothered to continue reading. One big puzzling flaw, our Hero Nick who is broke in a couple of lines hires a Lawyer for $100,000 , only at the end is their a short explanation that his sister had raised the money! The lead characters are middle class Americans: are they so dumb that they constantly lacking any intelligent vocabulary have to constantly use the F-word and other unnecessary expletives! If you removed this unnecessary language the book would have been a lot shorter and better. I thought the plot was excellent and fairly original and for this reason I have given it three stars. I have donated mine to the local Charity Shop as I certainly would not read another of this Authors books.
