I'm probably about the last person who hasn't read/talked about Gone Girl already. It came out in 2012. It's even been turned into a movie already. There is no doubt that the book is a tour de force.
But I ended up not liking a single character in the book – I'm sure that was intentional. The author is a master of playing mind games with you as you go through the book.
A strangely compelling read. It also makes you think about the hysteria that can be whipped up by the media that effectively judges people before the justice system can ever act.
I ended up liking this book despite myself. And I hope I never ever come across a person like Amy in real life!
