Has anyone read Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn?

It messed with my mind a bit.

Yep - check the book section as there was a thread on it. Definitely not typical. I wouldn't say I loved it or hated it but wanted to rewrite it.

I liked it. FWH got a little nervous when I laughed and laughed over her framing him.

I believe I started the thread in the Book section. I absolutely could NOT put this book down.

I read it. Very hard characters to like--but I blew through it in a day. Creepy.

For me it was a page turner. Neither of the main characters are very likeable and the ending just made me sad.

It was the bit about how he loved Andie and how it all started. Although Amy is a psychopath, I could relate to her "cool girl" concept and know I've definitely been there..

I will read the thread already started.. thanks
