I get it, already.

Posted By on September 29, 2014

I think it’s no secret that I tend to veer away from books and movies that are All The Rage Trendy. I’ve never seen a Batman movie, haven’t seen Frozen, and refuse to read anything Fifty Shades.

However, I’ve been planning to read Gone Girl since it first hit the stores. My fault that I haven’t gotten to it until now, now that the movie opens this week and I hear about it everywhere. Tonight I reminded myself that the book interested me long before all the hullabaloo, so I Nooked it.

Eight pages of reviews before I get to Chapter One. Eight. Pages. Of. Reviews. This annoys me. I mean, I get it. People think this book is the bomb. Eight pages of reviews seems like the publisher trying a little too hard, yes? Like the powers that be just can’t pat themselves on the back enough for publishing this book. Hey, I already bought the book. Give me a break.

I know it’s stupid. I know this shouldn’t bother me so much. But Gone Girl and I have already gotten off on the wrong foot and I haven’t even gotten to the first actual page. In fact, I put it down to write this post.
