When I read Gone Girl last summer, it blew me away. I was totally amazed at the book. So when they announced it was being turned into a movie, I was quite excited to see how it would turn out.
I am very happy to report that the movie is almost as awesome as the book! The movie stayed very true to the plotline and feel of the book, which is always one of the key things of a successful book to movie transition.
As soon as the movie started, I was pulled into it, and even though I knew the plot beforehand because I did read the book, it was still incredibly amazing to watch play out. I thought the casting was excellent and the movie is an all around success.
I’d definitely recommend watching, and reading, this story, and due to the closeness between the two, I don’t think the order is important.
