    Any one read "Gone Girl"???

    I just finished this book by Gillian Flynn and really enjoyed it. Any one else read it? What did you think?

    I really enjoyed Gone Girl. I thought the author was very good so I read her other books, Sharp Objects and Dark Places. It's refreshing to read about "dark" women characters. See if your library has Sharp Objects, I recommend it.

    I really liked "Gone Girl". The twists and turns of the plot were fascinating. I'll look for the other books by Gillian Flynn.

    Glad to hear you liked it - I have it on hold at the library, but the other "holds" are numerous before me! I'll look for her other book - thanks for the tip!
    KEEP CALM and CARRY ON!!

    James Patterson writes some very interesting books, he does the Alex Cross (detective) ones they made movies from. He also does the Murder Club series(a group of women-lawyer, DA, etc who solve murders), Michael Bennett mystery series, 'Private' series (about a chain of private detective agencies in different countries), and a ton of others. He's written over 100 books. Almost all of them are really good. He does a lot of writing with other people too sort of like Tom Clancy does. I think they do the plot and let someone else write the words but they are still good to read. I think I've only come across one that I couldn't get into. I usually grab his books as soon as they come to the library.

    I read it. Kept reading even though I didn't "like" her. Thought she was a head case. Glad she's not in my world! But a good read.

    Yes, I read it about 6 months ago and loved it. Some of my friends had suggested we do a book club with it but no one else finished it. I thought it was great.

    I just downloaded Gone Girl on my Nook. two that I loved that I read recently are The Innocent by David Baldacci and The Witness by Nora Roberts. I loved the Harlan Coben series. and Michael Connelly 's The Concrete Blonde. I love the "who dun it" type books. Toss in a little bit tawdry romance novel a couple times a year and it rounds out. I have Dark Places lined up to download also. Hope I enjoy it as much as you ladies did

    I was intrigued at first but then started getting bored with all the twists and turns...just too many. I skimmed the last 3 or 4 chapters and was disappointed in the depressing ending...so hopeless.

    Something for me to check out. Favorite books. Alex Cross series, Patterson.. Eve Dallas series, J.D Robb(nora roberts) . Anna Pigeon series. Nevada Barr. Loved Tony Hillerman. There are so many that I can't remember off the top of my head. There is one I really liked set in Alaska and a second that used and older woman that travels from Alaska to the southwest (i think) by herself with her dog in an RV I am pretty sure both series were written by the same author or maybe its the same series can't remember.

    I am wondering if you are talking about the Kate Shugak character by Dana Stabenow which is set in Alaska. I loved the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo trilogy and have read it twice. I love the Eve Dallas books. Anna Pigeon is tops! When my DH and I traveled to the southwest, I always looked for the places in which Tony Hillerman books were set. I loved Lonesome Dove and all the prequels and sequels and followed their trail too when we traveled in the southwest and into Montana.

    I just looked at some of the Dana Stabenow books on my library page and I don't think that's it. I wish my memory were better. I never did start reading the Lonesome Dove series. I have plenty of time so I may start once I get back to Ga and settle in.

    Ah Ha I found it the author is Sue Henry.
