gone girl





I finished this up a couple weeks ago, and forgot to tell you. 

It's a really, really good read. For about half the book you have no idea what's going on, and then when you find out you're like: I did not see that coming!

I'll tell you the basic premise and leave the rest a mystery. 

There's this couple, Nick and Amy. They've had some ups and downs, much like any married couple. One day, Amy goes missing. That's all I'm saying. 

It's told from both their vantage points, to spice it up. 

It's just really entertaining. Well written, sometimes funny, sometimes chilling. Take my word for it. 

I'm reading three books right now; two because I couldn't quite get liftoff on two of them. Those are Jennifer Donnelly's Revolution, and Tony Robbins' Awaken the Giant Within. Got bored with both of those (sometimes my attention span is less than desirable) and started up on David Mitchell's Cloud Atlas, which I'm really enjoying, despite not having especially liked his other novel, Ghostwritten. It's written in a similar style. They're making Cloud Atlas into a movie that's coming out in late October.

Read any of these? What'd you think?

  1. I'm currently reading the fourth book in the Songs of Fire and Ice series and also Wacky Girls.

    I will definitely put Gone Girl on my next to read list! Thanks!

  2. I can't wait for the next game of thrones season ... I looked up Wacky Girls but it's elusive -- can't find it!

  3. I loved Revolution, but you do have to get through the first 50 or so pages of angsty teenage bs. After she goes to Paris, it gets far more interesting.
