Gone Girl is good.
I anticipated reading only a handful of fiction books in the Libro 52 Challenge, but I may read more if they are anything like Gone Girl. Witty, fast-paced, funny, kinda horrifying and extremely challenging to put down.
As the name suggests, the plot revolves around a young woman who is gone. One morning she’s just gone. She’s a daughter and a wife and she’s pretty and oddly famous. And when women like this disappear, people notice.
Gone Girl is a book about the noticing.
I loved this book.
It’s the most memorable fiction book I’ve read since Shadow of the Wind five years ago.
Bottom line: If you are looking for fiction, read this now.
