    I’ve read Gone Girl and Dark Places. I loved both of them and agree that they are definitely not something you want to read before bed – although as someone who simply could not put these books down I often found myself reading them late into the night!

    Although Gone Girl was really good and had it’s twists and turns I think I liked Dark Places better. I didn’t know they were making a movie of Dark Places! I agree that Charlize Theron is an odd choice… we’ll have to see how it ends up!

    Great post!

    Oh my gosh, I LOVED Gone Girl. I read it in one day over Thanksgiving break and became obsessed. I can’t wait for the movie, I think the casting they did is really great. I’m currently reading Dark Places and I agree – it does not help fall asleep!!!

    I read and loved Gone Girl – crazy book! I haven’t read her other books yet, but plan on it.

    I love that all of her books are wonderful, but they aren’t part of a series. I can’t wait to read Gone Girl and support a fellow Kansas Citian!

    Pilot’s Wife – awesome. Gone Girl – awesome. Animal, Mineral, Vegetable – could not get through. First book I’ve ever put down! Love all things Hemingway (you already know that, of course). The series by Khaled Hosseini (The Kite Runner, A Thousand Splendid Suns, And the Mountains Echoed) are all very good. The Book Thief – excellent. Where’d you go Bernadette – a real twister. My book club is meeting Monday to choose for 2014 and I hope we choose: The Devil in the White City, The Dinner, the rest of the Gillian Flynn series, Children of the Jacaranda Tree, Someone, Margaret Fuller – an American Life, and Johnny Cash, the Life. My Christmas present to myself is The Letters of Ernest Hemingway Volume II – of course!

    I read Gone Girl a few months back with my book club and really enjoyed it — I haven’t gotten around to the other two yet, but I definitely need to order them!

    I just finished reading Sharp Objects, and I am diving into Gone Girl now. I had to see what all the fuss was about. I am with you on not liking the abrupt ending in Sharp Objects, and I am anxious to get through Gone Girl because I have heard there are so many twists!

    My husband and I listened to “Gone Girl” when we were driving across the country, and it was fun to discuss the various plot twists and stuff with each other during breaks! We weren’t finished by the time we got to California, though, so I had to buy it and read the end (as he continued listening to it in the car every day as he drove to work). We both really enjoyed it, though!

    I have read her every novel and Gone Girl is the best one . Gillian Flynn is a psychology Major and writes psychological thrillers so brilliantly . Highly recommended.

    2. Highly accurate police procedures ,Media reactions on events,recession etc .
