Gone Girl was a book I wasn't expecting to enjoy. I don't frequently read mysteries but had heard good things and decided to pick this up. I'm glad I did! It's not a book I will find myself reading again, but it was an interesting delve into a marriage on the rocks and a missing spouse. The book had some predictable turns but you are never expecting the levels of secrecy and evil that the characters in this book are capable of. I found myself engrossed in the characters and the behavior they exhibited and couldn't help but try to analyze what would make them the way they are or what could have taken them so far from where they started. If you are looking for a quick read that will keep your interest from beginning to end, this is it!
