GoneGirl

My most recent fiction read was Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn (2012).  The book tracks the strange and suspicious disappearance of Amy Elliott Dunne, wife of Nick Dunne.  Evidence and testimony lead the police to consider Nick as the prime suspect in what appears to be a murder, though there is no body. 

I won't reveal other details, twists and turns, but prepare yourself to be bamboozled repeatedly.

Wow!  This one fooled me at turn after turn.  Psychological mind games, evil intent, acrimony and recrimination, the list of the darkest sides of humanness goes on and on.  The book was a very interesting read, though it brought to the surface my darkest suspicions about the human condition.  PLEASE tell me there can’t be too many folks who think and act like Amy and Nick Dunne.


Thanks for the rec, Moe (and, sure hope you weren’t hinting at something…).
