Gone Girl is a story about a marriage that is hijacked buy something twisted, a need to play and make people learn their lessons. It's a highly intelligent and witty story with more plot contortions and turns than a labyrinth in the middle of a grand garden. I was surprised with myself when it ended that I still rooted for one character over the other, you think you know them but you don't ( just like with people in real life) and as with all books the reader will add his own personality to the enjoyment of the outcome.
The writing style and the content reminded me of my favorites; Kate Christensen, Jennifer Egan, Greg Iles and some Hitchcock thrown it, the book will punch you in the gut and smack your in the chin and tell you to keep reading or else.. I had a blast diving into this story every time I opened the book and it's tales like this one that stay on my mind longer, parts of it cling inside and come up every once in a while when I rethink my favorite reads. I don't suggest that everyone jumps on the popular book band wagon because I don't really care about that status, read what speaks to you and if you love it then great, but I see people read it only to bash it with glee because it is popular, and that's just sad. Hating books because they are popular and wanting to rip them apart is more psycho than the actual characters in this book ... just saying!
