Gone Girl: A Novel

Gone Girl - Gillian Flynn There is a reason I don't read mysteries. Nothing is more disappointing then to get a certain amount of the way through the book and realize who done it and how. Sadly, Gone Girl was no exception. I pretty much had the who what when where and why guessed by midway through part one.Thankfully, Gillian Flynn was such a great writer I really didn't give a crap. It wasn't the why or the who or the how that made me want to keep reading this book. Instead, I was totally wrapped up between the lives of the characters and their relationships with each other. I was delighted with all the backstabbing, power grabbing, selfish back and forth. I was enthralled from page one. This is a rare book in an age where many of us bibliophiles have read it all. It may be heavy on the metaphors and a tad predictable. It's not even a new story, but it is a totally new take and Flynn is a master storyteller.
