Welcome back! Summer vacations have us a little off schedule, but we are thrilled to (belatedly) announce Gillian Flynns Gone Girl as our Living blog book of the month.
After three of our editors came back from their vacations excited about Flynns summer release, we knew it had to be next on our list.
Heres how the publisher describes it: On a warm summer morning in North Carthage, Missouri, it is Nick and Amy Dunnes fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nicks clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isnt doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams about the slope and shape of his wifes head, but passages from Amys diary reveal the alpha-girl perfectionist could have put anyone dangerously on edge.Under mounting pressure from the police and the media as well as Amys fiercely doting parents the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and hes definitely bitter but is he really a killer?
Stay tuned throughout the month for our initial suspicions, teaser questions, and party ideas! Comment below if youd like to read along with us!
