Manayunk Book Club July Meetup

The winner by a landslide for July takes the classic whodunit genre and flips it on its head. We're reading one of the most buzzed about books of 2012, Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn.

"Gone Girl is one of the best—and most frightening—portraits of psychopathy I've ever read. Nick and Amy manipulate each other—with savage, merciless and often darkly witty dexterity. This is a wonderful and terrifying book about how the happy surface normality and the underlying darkness can become too closely interwoven to separate."

We're meeting in the park, so don't forget chairs and bug spray.

Happy reading and mystery-solving and see everyone in July!

    Well CRAP. I'm going to be driving back from the DC area that night after a work trip! I FLOVED this book, and don't want to miss the discussion, so if I make it up in time I may drop in.
