BOOK TO READ: The Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn

 

BOOK TO BUY: Gillian Flynn's "The Gone Girl"

 

I was up all night reading Gillian Flynn’s The Gone Girl. It is fantastic.

I can’t remember the last time a book had me so engaged and worthy of giving up sleep. Cleverly thought out, well written, easy to read, thoroughly engrossing.

And a movie is currently in production, starring Ben Affleck, Rosamund Pike, Neil Patrick Harris and Tyler Perry, and directed by David Fincher (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Curious Case of Benjamin Button, The Social Network).

It’s scheduled for release in October 2014. The “third act” is going to be different, which is possibly a good thing.

Cannot wait!

READ ABOUT IT AND BUY IT HERE NOW.
