Teaser Tuesday: Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn

I’ve turned down a few invitations from friends to see a newly released movie because I like to read the book first. So, for this Teaser Tuesday, I’m reading Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. That’s right. I’m one of the few people who hasn’t read the book or seen the movie so no spoilers please. Have you read the book, seen the movie, or both? What did you think?

Here’s a teaser:

“Amy had come to the mall to buy a gun on Valentine’s Day, of all days, that’s what our friend Lonnie had said. She was a little abashed, a little nervous: Maybe I’m being silly, but…I just really think I need a gun. Mostly, though, she was scared. Someone was unnerving her, she told Lonnie. She gave no more details, but when he asked her what kind of gun she wanted, she said: One that stops someone fast.”


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

    1. I’ve heard the same sentiment from others. So far neither character is all that likeable so who do you root for? I guess I need a hero. 🙂 But I do like her writing style and the suspense is propelling me forward.

  1. I haven’t read the book or seen the movie, so you’re not the only one! Usually I prefer not to read the book before seeing the movie, because I don’t want to spoil the movie experience by comparing it to a book I’ve just read. So I find it interesting you like to read it first. 🙂

    1. I can see how you wouldn’t want to spoil the movie. I do find myself comparing it to the book. I like to see how I’d visualize it based on what the author has written and it seems the book is usually better. I guess I don’t want to spoil the book by watching the movie first, lol. 🙂

Don't be shy! I'd love to hear from you.
