Sunday's paper had three mentions of Gillian Flynn's Gone Girl: A Novel and then the magazine I flipped through recommended it as well. Catching up today with Entertainment Weekly, I discovered another article and interview with the author in the Summer Double Issue. Does that seem like a rather insistent message from the universe to you? I mean, I already had ordered Gone Girl to download to my Kindle Fire pre-pub and it has been waiting for my attention ever since.
So I started to read today and am already engrossed and fascinated. The tale is told in two very distinct voices: that of Amy through her earlier journals juxtaposed with Nick's insistence on the facts of the present. Who should the reader believe?
