Gone Girl - Gillian Flynn

Let me first start out by saying that I friend and I started reading Gone Girl: A Novel after we got so many people telling us how good it was.  I read the blurb of the story, but I had no idea what was in store for me when I started reading/listening to this!

 

Wow, these characters were beyond f'ed up.  I mean beyond!  Just when you started liking someone, they showed their true colors and then you were just disgusted with yourself for even falling for their b-s.

 

But, for this one, the heroine (anti-heroine?) of this story takes the cake for me.  Just when you thought you knew dysfunction, the author takes it to that point and beyond. 

 

Overall though the story just left me feeling unsettled and skeeved out.  I just don't know how these people find each other.

 

Kudos to the author for bringing me such a story that sent me through so many emotions. I've heard a lot of people say that this wasn't the best story of hers, so I'm excited to read more of her work...and a little nervous. LOL
