A new and (in my opinion) approved trailer has been released for Gone Girl! I’m really looking forward to this adaptation. I loved the book and hated the ending, but still love it overall. Go figure. This trailer is a big improvement on the first one, but I think they’re maybe giving away a lot of the best bits, and I hate when that happens in trailers. Anywho – feast your eyes on this:

I haven’t done a full review on this blog of Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn, and I read it quite a while ago, but to summarise my thoughts: I LOVED this book…and yet there were parts that I hated too. Confusing, right? I loved the writing style; it just seemed “real”, the nitty-gritty was laid bare for all to see, and I absolutely adored the page or two about the “cool girl”. For me the twists in this book came from nowhere and they had me completely hooked. I hated Nick, despised him even, and then BOOM I felt so sorry for Nick and I hated Amy, all the emotions!
