Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
Ok, so who hasn't read this?! Its been doing the rounds at book clubs and friendship groups alike, won a whole load of awards and is in the windows of most book shops... I've even heard rumours of a film adaptation. If you've not read it, then hopefully I can persuade you to!
Its a 'psychological thriller', but don't let that put you off, if you're not into that sort of thing. Amy goes missing. Soon enough, her husband is suspected of her murder. To the world Nick Dunne seems to be void of emotion, not grieving his wife as he should. On top of that, there are lots of strange circumstances surrounding her disappearance; their rocky marriage, a supposedly forged crime scene in their home, mysterious phone calls to Nick's mobile.
But as the story develops, we start to see that all isn't as it seems.
I won't say more than that, as this is a really fantastic plot. Gripping from the get go, interesting characters (which just get more and more deep!) and a fascinating storyline. You can see why they want to make this into a film!
I don't think I know anyone who hasn't loved this book - it is one-of-a-kind. Even if you don't usually read thriller type novels, this really is fab and gets you playing detective!
Have you read Gone Girl? Did you enjoy it as much as me?
