Gone Girl
#1
[Image: 416TH3igfOL._SX322_BO1,204,203,200_.jpg]

On a warm summer morning in North Carthage, Missouri, it is Nick and Amy Dunne’s fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick’s clever and beautiful wife disappears. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn’t doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams about the slope and shape of his wife’s head, but passages from Amy's diary reveal the alpha-girl perfectionist could have put anyone dangerously on edge. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media—as well as Amy’s fiercely doting parents—the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he’s definitely bitter—but is he really a killer?

Took a few years to soak up the tears

Although the middle drags a bit, I seriously loved this book, and honestly liked how it handled something's slightly more then the movie. Gillian Flynn is easily one of my favorite writers.

Ser Jaime Lannister. On the breast of his tunic, the lion of his House was embroidered in gold thread, roaring its defiance. they called him the Lion of Lannister to his face and whispered “Kingslayer” behind his back. Jon found it hard to look away from him. “This is what a king should look like”, he thought to himself as he passed

I adored this movie, though it's hard to explain why without spoiling the big twist. This video, I think, goes into great (spoiler-filled) detail on why the film worked so well, looking at the screenplay. It's honestly kind of amazing how Gillian Flynn manages to succeed at being both a literary author and a screenwriter, when a lot of people who excel in one of those fields have trouble crossing over to the other (for example, when adapting one of their books as a screenplay, or writing a novel version of a script they wrote).





Also, I've shown this before on one of our older forums, but it bears repeating...

The book was a great introduction to the film for me. I was just gripping the novel in shock the whole time.

I agree, it's very impressive that she managed to write a great script for her book. I know she's the writer of the screenplay for Steve McQueens new movie Widows, so I hope she continues as a screenwriter!
