    You know those books that are a complete chore to read? The ones you'll do anything -- playing Words with Friends, cleaning the house, scrubbing toilets -- to avoid reading? Then a few weeks go by and you've gotten dumber, because in doing your damnedest to avoid reading said book, men...

    I'm pretty selective about new releases, but Gone Girl's opening (about a man studying his wife's skull in bed) and unique alternating POV structure promised a kind of He Said, She Said Crimes and Misdemeanors, a The Secret History with a sense of humor. I did really like the structure...

    AMY DUNNE I am Amy. I?m so perfect you may want to puke. It?s okay, I have that effect on everyone, even my parents. They noticed I was so perfect when I was a little girl and so they wrote some vastly popular children?s books called The Adventures of Amazing Amy. You may ha...

    Marguerite Yourcenar wrote long ago that "the mask, given time, comes to be the face itself." This can work for good or bad, but the more hideous the secrets, the more carefully that mask is constructed. So what if you discovered after five years of marriage that you'd only seen the ma...

    Twisty like a pretzel, dark like unadulterated chocolate, and as compelling as a twisted car wreck, this thriller delivers! On their fifth anniversary, Nick and Amy's marriage implodes when Amy goes missing and Nick is hardly as distraught as he ought to be. Too much plot summary would...

    (Original image credit: Kate Beaton) That was my immediate reaction after finishing this book. Pretty clearly that's not how it ends. It doesn't END that way. Yet, when I tapped Shadow's screen to turn the page (Shadow's my Nook's name, FYI) - there were only acknowledgements. ...

    I've been completely fangirling over Gillian Flynn since her debut Sharp Objects six years ago. It remains one of my all-time-favorites, along with Flynn's sophomore novel Dark Places. No one writes the inner workings of warped and damaged human psychology better than this woman. Wit...

    This book was just way too much fun ? and I mean that in a good way. I?m taking a leisurely drive down the garden path of the story, when BAM ? right in the middle it makes a u-turn and we are on the damn highway doing 90 miles an hour (commonly referred to as a plot twist). Swee...

    Oh, COME ON. Everyone (and I do mean EVERYONE ) loves this hateful book? Kind of makes me weep for the future. It's not even all that clever. It must be the depravity of it all. Suckers. AND, If I ever read the words *fucking bitch* again it will be too soon. ...

    As seen on The Readventurer I am giving Gone Girl 3 stars, but only begrudgingly. In my mind, any book that takes me 3 months and 20 different tries to read is not worth 3 (i-liked-it on Goodreads) stars, especially a book written by an author I already respect. And I am not kidding...

    Gillian Flynn hands you a little black box. "What's this?" you ask. "Just open it," she says, twitching an eyebrow at you. Just a tiny movement, a gentle follicular nudge. "Is this a puzzle box?" you ask, wary. "I keep seeing people playing with ones just like it on the train. ...

    This book is such a steaming pile of shit for so many reasons and hands down the worst book I have ever read. There is a huge cloud of smug over Gone Girl. This was such an unpleasant read that I started taking notes of all the ridiculous parts. It also didn't help matters that I f...

    Okay, here is the thing. I like dark and twisted stories. The twisted plotlines and authentically scarred characters pull me and I am hooked. Gillian Flynn wrote such a story line very well in Sharp Objects. That story is messed up but beautiful all the same. Donna Tartt and Tana Frenc...

    *************** Summary: I loved it while despising it, how 'bout that? Oh dear, I'm caught between realizing that this is one of the most inconsistent plot-and-characterization-wise books I've read in a long time - as well as one of the most entertaining stay-up-all-night-to-finish bo...

    ***MORE MOVIE NEWS*** Gossipy sources say that Neil Patrick Harris will play Amy's creepy ex, Desi, and Tyler Perry will play Ben Affleck/Nick's scumbag lawyer. If this thing isn't a blockbuster, I'll eat my hat. ***UPDATE 7/25/2013*** Amy Dunne's role in the film offered to Rosamu...

    The first person narrative meant being in the thoughts of 2 very sick people the whole book and it left me feeling yucky. The author portrayed the minds of sadistic, narcissistic sociopaths making it a very dark book. And for some reason, I actually didn't find anything that happened a...

    3 1/2 stars. This is going to be a hard review to write because I feel so conflicted about my final rating and just how much I actually liked this book. For one thing, I think the second half is a big improvement on the first half and, though this is my least favourite book by Ms Fl...

    *5 Stars!* While it feels a bit off referring to this deeply deranged book as a "fun read", that's exactly what I'm gonna call it. Because for the time spent reading, this book entirely owned me. My focus, my world, my thoughts, were swept away by these insanely unrivaled characters...

    As always, I'm in awe of my idol.Gone Girl made me question every book I've read in the last year. Other people slap words on a page like they're writing a sloppy joe. Gillian spends two years crafting the literary equivalent of Beef Bourguignon. Brilliant. Flawless writing. Beautifull...

    Gone Girl is astounding. It is a gripping story of the courtship and marriage of a narcissist and a sociopath. They appear to be experiencing the normal setbacks of life during our recent financial meltdown: job loss, relocation, mounting debt, family illness etc. etc. It is easy to id...

    Quite simply, this is one of the best novels of the year. It's a thriller in the best tradition of Alfred Hitchcock and layered with brilliantly written characters; it's the kind of book that's nearly impossible to put down. The surprises and twists keep the reader guessing up until th...

    If you asked me at the halfway point what I thought I?d rate this book, I would have told you five stars with absolute conviction. And I would have rated it thusly, had it maintained its momentum throughout. Sadly, it did not. The first two thirds of this book were brilliant....

    So I decided it would be a little fun to put my own spin on this by casting Gone Girl in the following way: Amy Poehler as the sociopathic Amy Dunne. Nick Cage as Nick Dunne. And Desi Arnaz as Desi Collings. In the beginning Amy manipulates the reader with her diary entries...

    Pardon my French but "Gone Girl" by Gillian Flynn is a fucking masterpiece! Twist after twist after twist. You think the plot is going one way, and then it spits venom in your face, gives you a heart attack, and just for the hell of it, turns itself into a three-headed monster just to ...
