Gone Girl

Gone Girl
by Gillian Flynn

A wife goes missing... the iron is left on, a pot still boiling on the oven. Where did she go? Who did this? What is her husband, now the prime suspect, going to do? The book alternates from the husband's point of view (Nick), and previous journal entries from the missing wife's diary (Amy), leading up to an explosive page turning second half. However (without giving anything away), I didn't think the ending was as satisfying as the rest of the book. Nevertheless, you'll have a hard time putting this one down, as nearly every single chapter ends in a cliff-hanger. Contains offensive language. -- recommended by Jeremiah J. - Bennett Martin Public Library
