I know, I know: this was the it book of 2012, and I am late to the party.
It’s a pretty rad party.
Gone Girl is part mystery, part comedy, part domestic drama, and entirely, viciously delightful. Amy disappears on the morning of her fifth wedding anniversary, and police attention begins to swirl (inevitably?) on her attractive husband with the flimsy alibi. But nothing turns out how you think it will.
Highly recommended, especially as a highbrow beach read.
