GONE GIRL by Gillian Flynn
WARNING: Be prepared to pull an all-nighter when you start this book.
I suppose this would come under the heading of psychological thriller, but I didn't know it when
I began to read. It took a couple of weird twists and I found myself in a clusterf**k that had me
biting my nails and talking out loud to myself. "OH, NO!" "I DIDN'T SEE THAT COMING!"
The story involves a young couple who have been married for five years. They seemed like a golden
pair and have everything going for them. On their fifth anniversary, he came home to find the tea kettle dry and ready to catch fire on the stove, the iron was hot on the ironing board, the ottoman in the living room was upside down and his wife was missing.
That's all I can tell without a spoiler.
I heard that Ms Flynn was on The View on Thursday. I hate that I missed it. And the buzz is that
Reese Witherspoon has purchased the movie rights.
Read this book; you won't be sorry!
