Book: Gone Girl
Everywhere I looked the past month, I saw great reviews on Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. After a draining month of work, I badly needed to escape into a page-turner for a weekend. I started reading it on a Friday night ... and less than 36 hours later, I was done. You guys, it was good. Whew, what a journey! I can't wait to talk about it. Will you please read it so we can discuss? It's perfect for a beach day, a lazy weekend or a plane ride. You've got one of those coming up this summer, right?
I won't tell you much but here's what it's about -- on Nick and Amy's fifth wedding anniversary, she mysteriously disappears. The book is told from both perspectives -- he writes a chapter, and the next chapter is something she's written from her diary. You are kept guessing for the whole ride. I can't tell you any more! But just know that I thought the writing was great, the story unfolds was a unique way and the characters are interesting. If you like to know more about books before you read them, you can see a review here.
I think you are going to love it ...
