Seems like most of the reviews are by women. Would a male reader enjoy this book? I read Gone Girl and liked it a lot...except for the ending.

Nick Yes, absolutely. Its a thriller. Just happens to be written by a (very talented) woman. She gets the male characters pretty much spot on so its not really gender specific if you know what I mean. Just great read.
Les I quite liked the book. I found it suspenseful - "thriller" seems more a word for a Tom Clancy novel. But I also consider the key developments to be in the characters' emotions, not a question of action.

Tastes vary, but I doubt like and dislike will be on gender lines. The big question will be "can you stand unreliable narrators" IMHO, YMMV.
Eric Goldman I'm a male reader and I enjoyed this book very much.
Sidney Lock Sorry but disliked all the characters and felt the story was too long winded
