    Never heard of it. Is it good despite being crazy?

    I don't know that I would see you enjoying it. The vulgarity and sexual stuff threw me and made me kind of uncomfortable reading it. Not sure what your sensitivity level is, though.

    It sounded interesting in the plot summary I read. But you are probably right. I probably would not enjoy it if there is a lot of vulgarity & sexual implications in it. Thanks for the heads up!

    I am halfway through but I haven't really found it to be sexual really at all? There are a few things here and there.

    I really liked it, but it was so crazy!

    I just finished another book by the same author, Dark Places, and it was good too.

    I enjoyed Gone Girl. Some nice twists and turns in the plot.

    The beginning bored me a TON. I had to force myself to read it, but it has finally gotten very interesting. And extremely weird/creepy.

    That book, man. That was a trip. It gets more sexual as it goes on, if I remember right.

    It was...interesting. I thought that it was well written but I also thought that the main characters absolutely had nothing redeeming about them and I didn't feel good or bad towards either of them.


    I read it for a book club and the night we discussed it was so much fun. All of us were kind if like "WTF?" about the characters.

    I haven't read any of Gillian Flynn's other books. I looked up another one on my Nook the other day but didn't buy it, but I can't remember why now. Honestly, I'm worried it will be another book where the characters are just people I don't care about the resolution.
