One book that has a twist that I didn't see coming (although you don't find out until the end) is Chris Bojalian's (sp?) book called "The Double Bind." I think this one would be a great movie.

Thank you for the suggestion. I was just wondering what I should get after reading Gone Girl, which I loved, loved, loved.

Get any of Nikki French's books. They're all twisty psychological thrillers similar to Flynn's but a tad more believable.

I would recommend Gillian Flynn's book, "Dark Places". Very good, intense read!

Thanks for posting this question, I was wondering the same thing! I also *loved* Gone Girl. I disagree with the posters who didn't like the ending and I really hope they don't give the movie a pat, Hollywood-happy ending. My biggest worry is how they'll handle the fact that *so much* of what we know comes directly from the characters' minds and the diary.

What to read after Gone Girl? Tana French, Tana French and, oh, Tana French.

Nikki French is to Gillian Flynn as MacDonalds is to Le Cirque - try A Dark Adapted Eye by Barbara Vine (pseudonym of the incomparable Ruth Rendell).

A tad? !!! A tad? How kind you are Erica!!!! black lab puppy who's quite the ham and even more the goofball could write phsychological thriller circles topping this books 'un-believability. Sorry I couldnt help myself from butting in here but i was just so gosh darn disappointed after getting through all those pages of non stop bellyaching and conniving. I would read anything,! The nearest farmers almanac even, just to cleanse the palatte!

I read a book called "The Sense of an Ending" by Julian Barnes right after I read Gone Girl. Without any intention of choosing a specific follow-up book, The Sense of an Ending was almost perfect as a follow-up because it explores some of the same themes as Gone Girl but in a more subdued, muted way. It also was a book dealing with how women and men interact, how they see each other, and the sometimes-uncrossable chasm that separates individuals within relationships. It was extremely well-written and a bit of a relief after the twists, turns and high-drama of Gone Girl; but it was still gripping and highly readable.

Read "The Little Engine That Could" - the writing and plot are much better.

I immediately read Sharp Objects and then Dark Places by Gillian Flynn---I loved loved Gone Girl, think it is the best of the three, but all three are disturbingly addictive. Thanks for the suggestions.

Ruth Rendell writing as Barbara Vine. She is a master at psychological thrillers. Also as a mystery writer. One of the very best.

After Gone Girl (which I loved!), I read a fantastic book that has a similar format of alternating he/she chapters, and was almost as good as Gone Girl. It was also a page turner!

The Silent Wife by A.S.A. Harrison
