In addition to books, I also spend much of my time reading magazines, immersing myself in mostly trivial, but highly enjoyable pop culture news. When reading a recent issue of Entertainment Weekly, I came across a review for this seemingly enticing novel, Gone Girl.
Gone Girl tells the story of a woman named Amy, who goes missing and her crazy, self-centered husband, Nick. The thriller is told from two perspectives, both Nick and Amy. And as the reviewer explains, author Gillian Flynn expertly makes them sound like two different people.
Apparently on page 219, everything changes, and the book flies by. That notion alone makes me want to read this book that Jeff Giles says will turn Gillian Flynn into a star.
