The Book(s) of Love No. 11: Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn

suburbia

“My gosh, Nick, why are you so wonderful to me?’
He was supposed to say: You deserve it. I love you.
But he said, ‘Because I feel sorry for you.’ ‘Why?’ ‘Because every morning you have to wake up and be you.”

Ah, the tyranny of suburbia! Nothing is what it seems in this novel, NOTHING. I will tell you that from the beginning, believe nothing that you read. Again, this novel ticks my “loves to read/watch stuff about psychopaths” button.  It’s a murder mystery story and a story about one couple’s relationship in the midst of it.  It’s about how you often don’t know all or even part of what you’re getting yourself into when you marry someone.  It’s about trust.  This book is twisted as hell and cynical and fun.  Do you need more convincing?  PS. cool art above by Ross Racine.
