David Fincher has a way with adapting books into movies that retain the original plots of their literary counterpoints while also having their own Fincher-esque style and flair. This week, the excellent director released an adaption of Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl, a movie with plenty of uncomfortable humor and an excellent pace that should keep audiences on the edge of their seats for the film’s lengthy two and a half hour runtime.

While Fincher stays pretty faithful to Flynn’s narrative, introducing a good portion of the twists the writer wove into her story of relationships, betrayal and murder, there are plenty of changes that were made that readers will notice when they watch. Most of these changes are made to service the length of the film, although a few are made to give the audience viewpoints they could not have gotten from the book, which is told through Nick and Amy’s perspectives. Overall, Nick, Amy, Go, Boney and Gilpin remain characters who will stick with fans, no matter whether those fans are invested in the story on the screen or within the pages of the book.

Following are the 15 biggest changes I noticed in my screening of Twentieth Century Fox's Gone Girl. Plenty of other details were changed, of course, and feel free to remark on any changes you feel may have been more noticeable. There are many spoilers in the Gone Girl book to movie comparison. Do not delve in if you want the film to be a surprise.
