embarrassedandsorry said: Fuck you for spoiling Gone Girl. I spent real dollars on your book only to get to page 94 and stop reading it, because I now hate you. Which is ironic because the chapter that contains the spoiler is discussing how likability of a character is unrelated to literary worth.
Let me know your PayPal address and I will refund the purchase price of the book, but Gone Girl has been out for three years.
Ah! Who talks to people like this? (When I read that first sentence my eyes widened involuntarily, O polite and nervous Canadian that I am.) And if you’re so desperate to know what happens in Gone Girl, why are you reading an entirely different book?
I just got an email from a reader about my ending. He was not satisfied. And he felt the urge to tell me. Sometimes I think readers forget that writers are, you know, real people.
