A police examination of his computer shows strange searches. He says they aren't his. And then there are the persistent calls on his mobile phone.

One of those rare thrillers whose revelations actually intensify its suspense instead of dissipating it. The final pages are chilling."--"Kirkus "(starred review) "[W]hat looks like a straightforward case of a husband killing his wife to free himself from a bad marriage morphs into something entirely different in Flynn's hands. As evidenced by her previous work (Sharp Objects, 2006, and Dark Places, 2009), she possesses a disturbing worldview, one considerably amped up by her twisted sense of humor. Both a compelling thriller and a searing portrait of marriage, this could well be Flynn's breakout novel. It contains so many twists and turns that the outcome is impossible to predict."--"Booklist "(starred review) "Flynn cements her place among that elite group of mystery/thriller writers who unfailingly deliver the goods. Once again Flynn has written an intelligent, gripping tour de force, mixing a riveting plot and psychological intrigue with a compelling prose style that unobtrusively yet forcefully carries the reader from page to page."--"Library Journal "(starred review) "Flynn masterfully lets this tale of a marriage gone toxically wrong gradually emerge through alternating accounts by Nick and Amy, both unreliable narrators in their own ways. The reader comes to discover their layers of deceit through a process similar to that at work in the imploding relationship. Compulsively readable, creepily unforgettable, this is a must read for any fan of bad girls and good writing.

Every bit as good as the reviews indicated. I wanted to read it before I saw the movie and I'm glad I did.

I decided to read this book before the impending release of the Ben Affleck movie. I doubt that the movie will be able to live up to this masterpiece. The book is extremely well written and a real page-turner. I recommend this to anyone who loves a good mystery / character drama type of scenario.

I normally do not care for fiction, however, this is the most recent selection of my book club. This was a great book! The author makes you love some characters and want to kill others! That is some talented writing! Loved the book!

Wild ride....no resolution
I read this for my book group.....as with most books, some liked it, some didn't so much, some loved it. Though there were readers who were "troubled" by some of the language in it, Gone Girl was a great story, nice pacing and I even thought the end was apropos, though some in my group felt cheated by the end. I think it got some of us wondering what this relationship looked like 10 years down the road! I'd recommend it, I really liked it and it was different from many of the books we read in our group! Have fun with it......you won't be able to stop thinking about it!
