Gone Girl - Gillian Flynn

Finally got around to reading this book, that had a lot of buzz when it first came out. This is a serviceable thriller, and a definite page turner, which is not to say it doesn't have issues. I can't say a lot about it without venturing in to heavy spoiler territory, but I will say I disliked the ending, even though it makes a sort of sense in the universe of the book itself.

Here are some random words and phrases that sum up my feelings about this book:
  • Unreliable narrator
  • Clever
  • Too  long
  • Mixed feelings
  • Twisted
  • Loose ends
  • Diabolical
  • Plot twists
  • Ultimately unsatisfying
I managed to avoid the movie but I think I'll watch it now out of curiosity. Mixed feelings.
