I listened to Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn on my Overdrive app. I loved it. I have since seen the movie.
From Amazon: On a warm summer morning in North Carthage, Missouri, it is Nick and Amy Dunne’s fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick’s clever and beautiful wife disappears. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn’t doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams about the slope and shape of his wife’s head, but passages from Amy’s diary reveal the alpha-girl perfectionist could have put anyone dangerously on edge. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media—as well as Amy’s fiercely doting parents—the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he’s definitely bitter—but is he really a killer?
In the first few minutes of the book, I was hooked. I couldn’t wait to find out what happens next. Then the story continued as Nick began to deal with Amy’s sudden disappearance and some gradually revealed details that might cast doubt on his own innocence in the matter. Without giving any spoilers, Part Two unveils some major plot twists that cast Amy’s status in an entirely new light. From that point on, the story moves along quickly, you know the whole story is going to explode.
