Book Review: GONE GIRL (Gillian Flynn)

Think you've given up reading anything longer than a magazine article? No time? No interest in the longer form anymore? Attention span has evaporated? If you read only one novel this year, make it GONE GIRL, by Gillian Flynn. As much a commentary on marriage as it is a thriller, this story is hugely compelling, superbly crafted and twisty right up to the end. You will ditch your chores, cancel appointments and stay up all night to finish it. You're welcome.

  1. I've since read Ms. Flynn's other two novels, SHARP OBJECTS and DARK PLACES. Both are great, with dark, twisty characters and plot. They're easier to get from the library at this point, so read them while you wait for GONE GIRL.
