TCCDM Dig and Flip: "Gone Girl" (2012)

"Gone Girl" - Gillian Flynn (2012)
Softcover, 415 pages

NO SPOILERS:
I can't say too much about this disturbing suspense-maker without spoiling all the fun.  There are plenty of well-thought roadblocks and menacing detours.  And absolutely one 'wtf' moment after another.  "Gone Girl" made me stressed and uncomfortable and pissed.  Sociopaths are so good at being fake that you're unknowingly painted into a corner before you even see the brush in hand.   "Gone Girl" was not at all what I expected.  All the characters are various shades of off-putting, yet I really enjoyed turning the pages.  But hell, maybe you might hate it.  Me, I think Gillian Flynn does exactly what she set out to do.  Give everyone a giant wedgie.  And I felt like taking a long, hot shower after reaching the final page.

"My Girl (Gone, Gone, Gone)"  - Chilliwack / "Wanna Be a Star" (1981)

Good stuff.
