Gone Girl, Gillian Flynn

82. Gone Girl, Gillian Flynn

Gone GirlIn some ways, this book deserves all the hype it's gotten: it's fast-paced, the writing is brilliant, and Flynn has a knack for getting you inside her character's heads--even when the inside of their heads is not somewhere you want to be.

That said, I personally found some of the directions the novel takes so disturbing that there were parts I skimmed over. Days later, I find myself still thinking about the characters in not-entirely-comfortable ways.

Some readers love this kind of novel; I don't, particularly.

There is some language and other graphic encounters.
