I have loved reading from a very young age. I found Flynn’s style to be painfully boring to read, despite my anticipation of the dramatic story unfolding. I grew tired of trying to finish it, and I’m never one to stop reading a book before completion.
A good book, probably the best book, she will write. It depicts Amy as a suave and sophisticated New Yorker, who is slightly anti-American, in regards to traditional values, and a little too much focus on PC for my liking, with a steady jaundiced eye towards those people, who love God and Country. An example, as Amy points out in reference to a female, whom she meets duirng her travels: “Her bookshelves were stocked with coffee-table crap: We Remember 9/11.” Also, at times, the italics duirng a conversation are not clearly evident, if the speaker is talking to themselves or out loud. It could have been a masterpiece, she missed the mark though.
It's thrilling and shocking book with some shocking twist and turns. Although I still hate the ending.
I found the writing to be extremely juvenile. Every time I put this book down I dread picking it back up. I love reading, but this book felt like such a waste of time.
The book itself is pretty interesting and something that isn't easy to put down... but at the same time its going to tug at all your values and make you really wonder whose side you want to be on and then hate ourself for being on either side. It's pretty intense. I think that it does do a great job in illustrating the difficulties that both men and women have in respect to one another within some relationships, though both side's responses to the negative is blown waaaayyy up for the viewer's entertainment.
The book is a little explicit in regards to sex and language so that is something to keep in mind before purchasing the book.
Not saying that it's good or bad, just because it's one of those books that will become what you make of it.
This is awful! Omg those diary entries from Amy! I can't finish it.
This book was a good read! It kept me on my toes throughout the whole book. There were so many things that went on in the story, and you never knew what was going to happen next. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a twisted tale, as well as someone who loves a little thriller with a little mystery. It is a twisted romance novel that makes you want to learn what happens next.
Very well written. I love Gillian Flynn's figurative language. The characters were multidimensional and realistic. Definitely not overhyped. I avoided it for a long time just because it's so popular, but I liked it way more than I expected.
I'm an avid reader, and always watch movies of books I enjoyed. Reading is always more in depth, detailed, interesting than the movie. *Not in this case*
1st chapter of the Grapes of Wrath about the turtle crossing the dirt road kind of detail. BORING!
The shallow and uninteresting characters drag on and on.
The movie is cheaper to rent and far more entertaining than this horrid read.
Hard to believe this book was a bestseller. Boring story, unlikable characters and poorly written. I will never read a book by this author again.
Awesome, easy read. For adults, but you must be pretty open minded to read the book.
I have never read a book with so many unbelievable twists and turns. Just when you imagine the outcome, you are headed in another direction. I couldn't put this book down, and I am recommending it to others.
