Recently I decided to break my standing rule about going to see movie adaptations blind, and I went to see the Gone Girl move without having read the book. I had a vague idea of the plot from the book’s reputation, but for the most part, I didn’t know the story going in. Ever since then, I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about the way that people in my circles (both online and off) have been reacting to it.
(Ed. note: Contains Gone Girl spoilers, obviously.)
