Default Gone Girl

Have any of you read this book by Gillian Flynn? It is hands down one of the best books I have read this past year. You see it in the news all the time--wife disappears, husband is the primary suspect, and usually is guilty. This book starts out similar to this story line, but turns out nothing like you suspect, down to the final twist at the end.

Ben Affleck is in the lead role in the soon to be released movie, I hope it doesn't differ plot wise too much from the original.

After reading this book, I immediately read all the others she has written, and all of them were equally good.

Give it a try! You will not be disappointed!

Great book though like many others I didn't like the ending. I'm looking forward to seeing the movie.

I saw this the other night, and while I never read the book, I must say I was pleased with the movie. It has some great twists, and the acting is amazing from everyone involved! It's quite great, as it gets toward the end, you don't really know whom you should be rooting for! I'd say if you have the 2 1/2 hours, it's worth your time.

I've read the book (and a couple others of hers as well). Loved the book, but I have to agree with YD -- the ending made me crazy! We bought the movie over the weekend but haven't watched it yet. Have any of you read the book and seen the movie? Does the movie stay fairly true to the book?

It's extremely similar to the book.

We finally got around to watching the movie. They stayed very true to the book! Since I'd read the book I knew how it would end; but when it was over my husband was not happy LOL!
