Review of 'Gone Girl' by Gillian Flynn

 Ohhhhh Mrs Flynn, you've done it again.

Once again, she's written another book that has some amazing twists that makes you question where the book will go next. Although the book was well written and thought out, I unfortunately found myself aggravated at the turns and twists of this one. Actually not so much plural as singular.

I found them all phenomenal except the last.

Sharp Objects and Dark Places both had a final twist that made me jump in my skin, leave my skin crawling and mind wandering, yet the ending of Gone Girl seriously just pissed me the hell off. Really?

Maybe Flynnster wanted to get away from her usual endings of shock from a character, and wanted that shock to be more of an anger from the fact that we'd want a different ending.

It was a great escape, and in a book that's all I really want, but I can't help but want a little bit more from the ending.

4/5 Stars
