Review of "Gone Girl" by Gillian Flynn
This is a great book and I'm not the only one to think so as Gone Girl tops bestseller lists and has already been picked up by a production company. Seriously, it is my favourite book I've read this year.
Classified as a thriller, Gillian Flynn takes you through the story of a decaying relationship told through the eyes of both people involved. But whose version can you believe when one partner is found to be a compulsive "fibber" and the other is a narcissistic psychopath?
You Will Like This Book If:
- you like the psychological thriller genre without gore and violence
- you are in a bad relationship (because it won't seem so bad after reading this!)
- you are a fan of Flynn's other award winning books - Dark Places and Sharp Objects.
"Love should require both partners to be their very best at all times. Unconditional love is an undisciplined love, and as we all have seen, undisciplined love is disastrous."
