New York Times Bestseller.
This is an horrable good book about marriage with a lot of problem. Here is a dead person, a missing person, a cheat and a lot of darkness. This is a good read people.

In this tale, Flynn uses common genre tropes to set the stage for a tale of betrayal that twists predictably to tell a story of anger and disenfranchisement that leaves the reader baffled as to who to root for. I personally love stories with complicated heroes of ambiguous righteousness and in Gone Girl, Flynn has managed to achieve this in spades. While not the most unexpected or surprising of stories, Flynn manages to hold the reader's interest with characters who are simultaneously relatable and revolting, who take measures that many of us could only dream of. The one gripe that i have is that Flynn's characters can feel a little inconsistent at times. She may justify this with her unreliable narrator who conveys imperfect information, but I found it to be a little jarring and inconsistent.

As a book with an impending cinematic adaptation, this tale's worth reading for the party conversation alone. You won't be disappointed with a story that's long on entertainment and sprinkled with social commentary. It's a quick read, and well worth your time.
