Genre: Popular Adult Fiction, Thriller
Review: Gone Girl came highly recommended from many sources. What happens when an emotionally stunted former magazine writer, Nick, and a "Amazing" Amy get married, the recession hits, and they lose their jobs and move to Missouri? This book takes us there, divided into three shocking sections. After section 1, a super crazy twist occurs. The novel is expertly plotted, with unpredictable twists and turns, unique characters, and incisive social commentary. I don't want to say more for fear of revealing too much. Just read it! This is one book that can't be explained.
