Book Review – Gone Girl

Gone Girl is both a thriller and a romance novel (of a sort) that I thoroughly enjoyed.  Written in the first person from both the husband’s and wife’s perspectives, it makes an interesting contrast of the same events as viewed by the couple.  It is a “who done it” but also a tale of the demise of a marriage.    I don’t want to share too much about the plot as it is filled with unexpected.  The premise is that the wife disappears on the couple’s 5th wedding anniversary and the husband is suspected of being involved.   The book takes you back through the couple’s courtship and marriage.    The author weaves those events, reactions, and feelings to explain the wife’s vanishing in what appears to be a bloody scene.  This was one of those books that you can’t wait to see what turn it takes next.   The setting is a small town in Missouri like other Flynn’s novels.  (Flynn was born in Missouri and is a graduate of KU).  A wonderful read – highly recommended.
