Gone GIrl by Gillian Flynn
So sorry I have been so absent from the book world. My life has been a confluence of events--way to complicated to go into here that have precluded me from reading much more than the newspaper and cereal boxes. But I have finished a thrilling, page turning, New York Times best selling book that I wanted to share with you.
You may have heard of Gone Girl. It is on every bookshelf and every list. A missing woman, a suspicious husband, an elaborate plan. It has many twists and turns and is the kind of book you can read in a day or if you need to put it down to eat, perhaps a weekend.
My only bit of criticism was that by the end--it did get a bit predictable. Not totally predictable, but by the last hundred or so pages I could see where the author was going with it. Disturbing book, great read, perfect for the airplane or beach. Long wait list at the library--it should be out in paperback soon.
Happy Fall! Enjoy.
