Blogger Red Headed Book Child Reviews Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl

I cannot tell you how many emotions I went through while reading this book. Talk about psychological thriller. Holy cats!

This book was right up my alley. I’ve had this author on my radar for years now, ever since I picked up a used copy of her first book, Sharp Objects. (Still haven’t read that one, of course.)

I snagged this ARC at work while on break and thought I’d give it a go. It is quite marvelously put together. How intricate of a plot she has created.

I find myself getting a very quick opinion of a character from early on in most stories. This one, however, I thought I knew them, but they changed so many times, I did not know what was real and what was not.

This is not a “wham, bam,” simple cut-and-dry case. No. It is a full-on psychological thriller you might see on a 20/20 episode.

You never know who the good OR the bad guys are. You can’t stop reading though and wanting to know how the heck it’s going to end.

All in all, an impressive read from Gillian Flynn. Kudos for creating this dare I say, “edge of your seat” thriller. I will have to get to her first thriller sooner than later.

Check out Gillian’s website too. She has a pretty impressive resume!
