Gone Girl

I like unreliable narrators, but by the end of this book I actually hated both the main characters. While the plot is tight, there are huge holes generated by the secondary characters, holes that are never filled or explained. The writing is actually interesting and Flynn has created strong characters on the page, but I arrived at the conclusion feeling beaten up (I think that’s one of the goals of the book–to abuse the reader). But, since I’d ceased to care about the main characters there was no satisfaction derived from the feeling.
