We may not brush our hair, change out of our pajamas, or sit down at the dining table, but we always make time to read.

Gone Girl - Gillian Flynn
This book seemed to be all the rage a couple months ago. I can't count the number of people who recommended it to me - well, I'm sure I could count them, but still, it seemed like a lot. I was told there were lots of twists and turns and that I'd never guess the ending. And they were right, about three-quarters of the way through I had no idea how she was going to end this thing. I didn't guess correctly, and I didn't like the ending, but I can't quite figure out how else she could have done it. So, minus the ending, this was a great book. It's about a guy whose wife disappears on their fifth anniversary. The husband is immediately suspected of orchestrating her murder and ditching the body. The investigation that follows was reminiscent of the Scott & Lacey Peterson case, but of course with some different details thrown in. I can't say much more without spoiling things, but suffice it to say that this was a good recommendation - and it came from people of all ages (mostly women) who like to read a wide variety of literature. So, if you like a little mystery, a little jilted love, a little revenge, this one is for you.
