Has anyone read Gone Girl, Gillian Flynn?
Yes, loved it
I finished Sharp Objects, and when I finished picked up Gone Girl, I’m really noticing a huge difference in eloquent words and phrases, in Gone Girl, compared to Sharp Objects.
Me too. I am not a big fan of thrillers but this one was different and very good.
Yes. Very good
Yep! It was great!
I’m sorry to be the unpopular opinion- but I hated it… Loved Sharper Things by her, though…
I just finished that the other day, and thought to try this one.
I didn’t like it either x
I think (most) everyone has! Lol! I’d say it’s a “classic”! I’m super into psychological thrillers, and many books in that genre get compared to Gone Girl! Definitely read it! ?
Around 1991, or 1995 or somewhere around there I read A Deal with the Devil, but all of a sudden I’m talked into reading Sharp Objects, liked it so yesterday I ran in and picked up Gone Girl.
Yes. Good book.
Very good book, loved the way it was written, back and forth between the 2 main characters
Yes. I hated that book. I figured it out long before the end.
All 3 ( sharp objects, dark places and gone girl) were great books in my opinion.. currently watching the sharp objects series on HBO
Yes! Loved it.
Haha we posted exact same thing, at same time..good thinking ?
Yes loved it
Yes, good book
Yes!! I liked it a lot! It took me a little time to really get into, but once you hit a mega twist you’re hooked and just gotta know!
It was awesome.
Yes! It was so good!!!
Yes i recommend it
I hated it at first. I thought the characters were twits but I was encouraged to finish it. I’m glad I did.
Pretty much same experience. Glad I pushed through cuz it was great! Crazy but great haha
Thanks so much, I started to think there was something I was missing! I’ll keep to it.
Hi agree, both characters very hard to like but overall I think that helped as they deserved each other.
Someone has left it as a freebie at work. Think I’ll borrow it now
I tried to read it. Did not enjoy at all. My bookclub recommended i try again – still no luck. Not my cup of tea
Did you get all the way through
@Millers I did. I’ve read three of her books and haven’t truly enjoyed any of them. But I don’t do well with rambly over detailed writing and that’s kinda the way I feel Gillian Flynn is.
I will say it was readable but I didn’t love it.
@Nicole good enough?
I enjoyed it.
I’m going to keep reading it, if in the end I don’t love it, well I at least can say I read it on feedback from a great bunch.
It’s a book of 2 halves. The first is excellent. The second is drivel. It was like she gave it to a friend to finish up because she couldn’t be bothered. On my opinion anyway.
Yes! Loved it!
Yes great book.
Yes amazing but the ending made me so mad! Still not over it and I read it years ago! Lol
Very good book really enjoyed it.
It’s really good
I just blew through all 3 of her books in less than 2 weeks. Sharp Objects and Dark Places were just as phenomenal. Dark Places was my favorite.
Hi Tricia, Dark Places is the only one of three I haven’t read, will definitely read now after seeing your post!
Yes and enjoyed it
I enjoyed it
yea it was good
I read it in 2013 summer!Loved it!It was before ALL the hype and the movie!Great book!
DNF. ? Still on my shelf though waiting for another try!
yep, so good
Loved it. Got so angry at the author a couple of times! lol
Me too i was furious .
One of only two books I started and didn’t finish. I’ll eventually go back and try again but couldn’t get into it ??♀️
Loved it, much better than the film.
Yes ages ago. It is good. I’ve also seen the film
Yes, one of my favourite book! But I do agree with above, the ending is a bit anticlimactic
Yes… finished it… not a favourite. Hard going for the majority of it, but some good twists near the end…
Probably everyone. Lol
Reading it atm
Yes. I own it and loved it and love the movie.
Book good but movie absolute rubbish
Yes – good book.
I didn’t like the end
I liked it! Twists and turns! Movie was true to the book!
Great book and I thought the movie was awesome too!
Yes. It made be not trust characters but I liked it.
The movie only told a fraction of the story.
Loved all her books!
Yes. Took 200 pages for me to get into it.
Hated it ?♀️
Hated it. Bored me to tears.
Yes. It’s a great beach read. Hard to put down.
Good book but be prepared for unlikeable characters
All of hers are great!
Ugh . Save yourself , read something else
I absolutely agree!
Great book and film
Has anyone read The Woman in the Window, By AJ Finn? Same genre. I loved it!!
On my list!
I don’t recommend it. Left me mad I had wasted the time.
Heard the book which I felt was better than the film
I liked it very much.
Loved it and I say it was the worst of her books … hehehe Must read others
So predictable- boring
And the characters ???!
I read it and wish I had not !
Yes was very readable
Book was so much better than the film I loved it and pretty much everything Gillian Flynn writes
Loved it! So better than the movie.
I thought both the book and the movie were very entertaining. I expected changes in the movie.
