is either a genius or insane. I know, I know there is a fine line. Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn is quite simply brilliant. If you have read it, you know why I cannot say much about the plot without ruining it all. If you have not read it, I say...Nick and Amy are a generally happy couple with their share of problems like loss of jobs, ill parents, and a dwindling bank account. None of this however seems important when Amy disappears the morning of their 5th anniversary. Clearly based on the evidence and the stereotype, Nick is the prime suspect in the disappearance that may in fact be murder. But this story is so full of twists and turns the reader cannot possibly keep up without long pauses to think about it all.
