Janet Maslin, for the NY Times, writes, "“Gone Girl” is this author’s third novel, after “Sharp Objects” and “Dark Places.” “Dark Places,” in particular, drew attention from mystery aficionados, but “Gone Girl” is Ms. Flynn’s dazzling breakthrough. It is wily, mercurial, subtly layered and populated by characters so well imagined that they’re hard to part with — even if, as in Amy’s case, they are already departed."
Finally, Jeff Giles, for EW, writes, "There's not a lot I can tell you about Gone Girl without ruining its dark surprises, but I can tell you that it's an ingenious and viperish thriller — and that no matter how smart you think you are, it's going to bite you. The novel concerns a missing wife named Amy and a husband named Nick who's either (best-case scenario) a fatuous phony or (worst) a full-on psychopath. And here's another thing I can tell you about the novel: It's going to make Gillian Flynn a star."
