ultimately I find sad. People aren't perfect, but I think there's a desire to be genuine in who they are, especially to those closest to you. Marriage should and is designed to be sacred, but in this age, it almost sounds like a fantasy. "Gone Girl" just reiterates the brokenness of marriage. And it disturb me to no end on how manipulative, cruel and psychotic someone can be on the inside, without an ounce of remorse. Yes, it's only fiction, but books are there to open readers' minds and imaginations. Aren't fictions conceived through actual ideas and experience?
If you want to come away feeling disappointed and disturbed, then read up. I did not find closure in this book, or rather it's not one that ends with what you had hoped to achieve from reading. It is not for me.
