Gone But Not Forgotten

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
It feels like everyone has been reading this book lately, and here am I jumping on the bandwagon. If I was writing this review for only those that have read it, I feel like there's so much I can say. But since I know most of the world hasn't read this yet (even though it feels like they have) I'm somewhat limited since I hate giving spoilers.

There are just so many twists and turns in this that it's hard to write about it without giving something away. The book does remind me of The Deadly Sister by Elliot Schefer, except just a much more adult version. But even though there are similarities between the two, there are so many more difference.

A lot has been said about the ending, but in a way I kind of like it. I'm not a fan of the final few words though, because they definitely create a cliffhanger that I don't think is ever going to be solved, since I don't see any type of sequel ever happening.

If you haven't read this yet, and you're even thinking about picking it up, you need to do so sooner rather than later. Not necessarily because it's an amazing book (although it is pretty amazing), but more because you don't want anyone to ruin this for you.


Today I'm linking up with Blonde Undercover Blonde for Book Club Friday!


  1. I skipped over this post, right to comments, just in case of spoilers! Everyone has been raving about this book, I am so intrigued! I requested it from the library, and it was finally in, and then I didn't pick it up in time, as I was out of town! Ugh! I re-requested it, and was no. 387 in the queue! Insane! I'm finally down to no. 104 as of this morning ;)

  2. I also really enjoyed this book and also liked the end. It just fit well with the book whereas any other scenario would have been too "predictable" (and this book was anything but!)

  3. A book club that I'm in has this book for October and everyone's had a really hard time getting a hold of it. I ordered it this week and I can't wait to start when it comes!

  4. I've been on the library waiting list for this e-book for months and I'm finally close to getting it! :) It DOES seem like everyone has been reading it, I hear about it everywhere. I'm glad your review indicates it's worth the wait! Can't wait to read it! Thanks for sharing!

  5. I would never have heard of it if it weren't for Book Club Friday!

  6. I hated the ending! The book was so good, but the ending was so bad.
