Without giving anything away, I liked Rolling Stone's review of "Gone Girl"...pretty much sums it up, IMO.

".....what you can know is that Gone Girl has the impact of a body-slam, hitting home in every scary, suspenseful, seductive particular. It's a movie inferno with combustible performances. Affleck is terrific, undermining his good looks to suggest the soulless shallows that define Nick. For Pike, a Brit best known for supporting roles (Pride & Prejudice, An Education), this is a smashing, award-caliber breakthrough you'll be talking about for years....."

Yup, that's a perfect review Cheryl.

I think I'd like to read the book too, even after seeing the movie. I'd like to read the original. I'll probably have to order it from Amazon unless I go to the city. We don't have any new bookstores within 90 miles from here.

Okay, bucky. LOL. Yes, back in the day I probably would have read Rolling Stone while holding in a hit....

We watched "God's Not Dead" last night. A really good movie no matter what your views are.
