For a few years now everybody has told me that I have to read Gone Girl. Then those same people kept urging me as a matter of life and death to see the film, and up until a couple of weeks ago I had done neither.
So now I am reading the book and I am about a quarter of the way through, and I have to admit, so far it doesn’t seem anything special. In fact I am finding it a bit boring.
I will keep going though, as I have already passed my 100 page abandon point (if I find a novel really boring or hard going, I will abandon it before 100 pages, if I can make it past that point, I keep going).
Besides everyone tells me there is a shock about half way through. I just hope it is worth it!
