Gone Girl

Read ☆ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Ë Gillian Flynn

Not necessarily likable but at least worthy of my empathy not waste my time on self centered spoiled pathetic people who don t know what real problems are Granted characters in Flynn s previous novels Sharp Objects and Dark Places are pretty pathetic and and at times revolting too but I always felt some strange empathy towards them not annoyance and boredom like I felt reading about Amy and Nick s marriage woesBut then second part with its wicked twist changed everything The story became much exciting dangerous and deranged The main characters revealed sides to them that were ite shocking and VERY entertaining I thought the Gillian Flynn I knew before finally Discovering Your Heart with the Flag Page unleashed her talent for writingtterly Prom Kings and Drama Queens unlikable and crafty women THEN I got invested in the story THEN I caredWas it too little too late though I think it was Something needed to be done to make Gone Girl a better read Make it shorter Cut out first part completely I don t know But because of myneven experience with this novel I won t be able to recommend Gone Girl as readily as I did Flynn s earlier novels even though I think this horror marriage story it s not a true mystery IMO has some brilliantly written psycho goodness in it and an absolutely messed p ending that many loathed has some brilliantly written psycho goodness in it and an absolutely messed p ending that many loathed I LOVED I wish it didn t take so much time up ending that many loathed I LOVED I wish it didn t take so much time patience to get to all of that COME ONEveryone EVERYONE loves this hateful book Kind of makes me weep for the future I did not think it was clever as many have asserted just depraved manipulative Also if I ever read the words fucking bitch again it will be too soon The first person narrative meant being in the thoughts of 2 very sick people the whole book and it left me feeling yucky The author portrayed the minds of sadistic narcissistic sociopaths making it a very dark book And for some reason I actually didn t find anything that happened a surprise That made the story boring which may also have been because I didn t like or care about either of the Lettice the Flower Girl unrepentantnenlightened and self absorbed characters I just couldn t relate Even getting some background on their families didn t engender any sympathy in me for them It is not a satisfying read because there is no hope for these characters no redemption no justice for those murdered As I said Yucky This book is such a steaming pile of shit for so many reasons and hands down the worst book I have ever read There is a huge cloud of smug over Gone Girl This was such an npleasant read that I started taking notes of all the ridiculous parts It also didn t help matters that I figured out the ending before page 100There are lots and lots of f bombs and swearing which says a lot since
