endings

endings

i just finished reading “gone girl”.
i loved the story and the mystery, the writing, the twists, the occasional word i had to look up.it reminded me of reading “the time traveler’s wife” in that these were both books where i had to read every single word so i didn’t miss a thing. i want to know what’s happening in the next paragraph but i don’t want to skip this paragraph to read it! aahhh #firstworldnerdyreaderproblems
(that’s my definition of an engrossing book.)
but, reading this book made me realize how important an ending is to me when i read. my mom likes happy books; i like books that have a definite, resolute end to them. “gone girl” did not have that sort of end, and that’s the only reason i would knock a star off any sort of review. if you don’t mind a wandering, filmy sort of ending, then you will love this book. even with the wandering, filmy sort of ending i really liked this book.
