Gone Girl - Gillian Flynn

Try as I might, I can't think of any way of saying this without sounding condescending, so I'll just out with it : Only in exceedingly rare instances do thrillers qualify for Real Literature in my book. (No pun intended, though I'm not displeased with it, either!)

Hyped-up 'Gone Girl' was no exception to the rule; despite ambitious toying with the narrative voices, it never got more than quite OK. 
Entertaining enough should you feel the need to let your little grey cells rest awhile.
