I have been struggling for the last few months to read Gone Girl. I’m sure I’ve read the first page at least 5 times without getting very far despite all the rave reviews. But I decided to just go and watch the movie despite my snobbery regarding books made into movies. And this was such an amazing movie I now desperately need to read the book. The characters are psychologically very complex. And the story just drew me in and I was at the edge of my seat wondering what would happen next.
