Gone Girl - Gillian Flynn so i don't really know how to review this one. it's an intriguing, extremely fast-paced thriller and once i got into it i could not. stop. reading.

it's a true testament to the author that i really cared about what was going to happen, considering the fact that both these characters are completely unlikeable. as some other reviewers have noted however, it's funny how diary amy is supposed to be the likeable one, when she is simpering and awful and basically every cliche for a poor little rich girl ever. i found sociopath amy a lot more interesting! i also think the police would've been a bit savvier when interviewing amy. everyone knows that if you're going to tell a convincing lie you can't give all the details out straight away. that's incredibly suspicious!

also, i know it's only a very, very small part of the story but it really irritated me when they kept making the assumption that a weedy little college boy couldn't possibly be a rapist. insignificant to the story, yes, but it's just lazy writing.


mixed feelings on the ending. i would've liked to have had a bit more closure, and it just seemed a bit too sudden given the amount of detail throughout the entirety of this book.

4 1/2 stars for keeping me guessing!
