Remember yesterday when I said one of the things I was loving was the book Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn? And that I would probably have it finished by this weekend? Well, I went home after work, plopped myself on the couch and read until I finished the book.
I had heard really good things about the book from several different people, and since I'd finished my book club book, there was no better time to get hopping on this one. And I'm glad that I did!
I was warned by someone that they'd heard it took about 100 pages to get into the book--that it started out kind of slow. So, I went in with that preparation.
The book had my interest pretty quickly. But, I will say, the first 100 pages are NOTHING compared to the rest of the book. There's one point where, all of a sudden, it's like BOOOOOM! And you don't want to put the book down. Obviously....I read it in 5 days. It gave me an excuse to go to the gym and get on the elliptical cuz then I could read the book the whole time. Win-win!
Ok, so what's the book about? It's about a wife that goes missing, and the husband is trying to figure out what happened. It looks like she was abducted, possibly killed. At the start of the book, each chapter goes back and forth between the husband's point of view, and then a diary entry from the wife.
I won't say anymore, because I don't want to give too much away. But, it's good. The writing is fantastic. The plot is incredible. I loved it, and will certainly be reading more of Gillian Flynn's books.
If you're looking for a suspense-filled, intriguing book that's extremely well-written, pick this one up. You won't regret it!
