Gone Girl Movie Review

This could be the first time that I have enjoyed than the novel.  I read"Gone Girl" a month or two back and found it tedious, especially the initial 1 / 2 of the books' storyline was just kind of drifting on if it should have already been gripping (given the subject of the story).

It's different from this picture.  It's similar to the director edited it very precisely and has abridged the novel.  The leadership is brilliant and there's never a dull moment.  In fact, time flies by while this intelligently crafted movie keeps you in its grip for a two and a half hours.
