Book Discussion - Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn

  • October 25, 2012 · 7:00 PM

In October (how did it get to be October already?!) we're reading Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn, a psychological thriller perfect for Halloween! So much in this book to talk about. Also, of course October at Chaibo means pumpkin lattes and whoopie pies. Yum!

Below is a description of the book from Amazon.

On the day of their fifth wedding anniversary, Nick's wife Amy disappears. There are signs of struggle in the house and Nick quickly becomes the prime suspect. It doesn't help that Nick hasn't been completely honest with the police and, as Amy's case drags out for weeks, more and more vilifying evidence appears against him. Nick, however, maintains his innocence. Told from alternating points of view between Nick and Amy, Gillian Flynn creates an untrustworthy world that changes chapter-to-chapter. Calling Gone Girl a psychological thriller is an understatement. As revelation after revelation unfolds, it becomes clear that the truth does not exist in the middle of Nick and Amy's points of view; in fact, the truth is far more dark, more twisted, and more creepy than you can imagine. Gone Girl is masterfully plotted from start to finish and the suspense doesn't waver for one page. It's one of those books you will feel the need to discuss immediately after finishing because the ending doesn't just come; it punches you in the gut.

    I enjoyed the company and discussing books is always rewarding and fun. I did not like this book or its main characters but I discovered that I was not the only one. I appreciated the free flowing conversation.

    The November book is The Lone Ranger and Tonto Fightfight in Heaven by Sherman Alexie. I requested it from the library and it came in pretty quickly. It's about 20 years old so should be fairly available at the library (or cheap on Amazon!). :)

    I ordered the book from the library & it has not come in--it was supposed to be sent from the other library! I will not be there either. : (

    I loved this book and was psyched to discuss it, but my husband is doing a seminar tomorrow night and I do not have a babysitter. I bet it will be a great discussion. Hope your mind is blown!
