I was hesitant to snag this prepub out of our box at work because I didn't have a good Gillian Flynn experience the first time around. I read Sharp Objects
a few years ago and I didn't like the main character. She was a little too dark and twisty for my liking. But I've heard nothing but AMAZING things about Gone Girl for a couple of months now so I finally snagged it and...well...wow.
This book is one of the best psychological thrillers I've ever read. I'm not terribly attracted to all of those thriller/mystery/suspense series books out there, so I'm glad this is a stand-alone and the last few psycological fiction novels I've read, I have enjoyed. I mean, Before I Go To Sleep
were two of my faves last year, but those two books are child's play compared to the genius that is Gone Girl.
I can't even say a lot about it because I really don't want to spoil it for anyone else (I ruined it for Jesse because I HAD to talk about it). I mean, I couldn't put it down yesterday...I had to keep reading. It's such a good time!
