you love the straight or winding road?  Gillian Flynn will take you down a twisted street that will leave you gasping with surprise when you reach the “Dead End” of
Gone Girl.

This novel depicts a broken marriage that looks beautiful on the surface but teeming with dangerous creatures below.  Each chapter is from the husband or wife’s point of view, starting with the months  and days leading up to Amy’s disappearance and the ripples that occur afterwards.  The police have narrowed in one suspect, the husband – Nick Dunne.

Marriage can be a real killer, but is Nick guilty?  As the evidence mounts against Nick, Flynn’s suspenseful writing throws a major twist in the novel.  It is so unexpected and ends so oddly that it makes perfect sense.

I throughly enjoyed the book and would recommend you read it!  I’ve lately started reading multiple books at once so that I never finish a book without having another book in my hand.  In the past, if I had finished a novel like Gone Girl, I would have waited weeks before selecting another book to read.  My excitement and admiration for the latest and greatest novel leaves me despondent about another book reaching that same level in my eyes – so I wait until the memory of the last book has faded away.  My new strategy, reading multiple books at once, ensures that I don’t ever go with too long of a gap between reading books.   If you are like me, I would suggest this reading plan.  I read a nonfiction and fiction book at the same time.  In this way, I can read more books, and each book balances the other.
