Book: Gone Girl


finally, i finished reading the book gone girl. if i remember it right, i started reading the book while still on a maternity leave and my constant companion while putting my baby to sleep.

i always find it interesting when a book is made into a film. i feel excited especially when i knew the book beforehand or had finished reading the book. gone girl is one of the novels which was made into a movie starring ben affleck and rosamund pike, as nick dunne and amy dunne respectively.

i’m not going to make a film review or book review as i’m not an expert to that. i enjoyed the book as much as i enjoyed watching the film. oh wait! i think i must have slept a bit watching the movie because that was three hours long and i have a bad habit of always sleeping in the middle of a movie. haha!

i like the story, the twist in the plot and how scheming psycho bitch amy is, the gone girl we are referring to. i’m amused as to how she planned and stage her disappearance so she can frame her cheating husband for murder. sneaky and vengeful yet intelligent and impressive. amy is quite a character. she is complex and unpredictable which i find remarkable.

if i have the time, i’ll watch the movie again. no sleeping in between this time. 🙂
