Patty Pick for 10/23/14 is Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn

There are not too many people on the planet who have not heard of 
Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. When this book came out in hardcover, my 
book club fought over it at our annual Christmas dinner. Every year we bring 
a wrapped book and do a book exchange. We can "steal" a book from 
each other when it's our turn or keep the book we unwrapped. It's a lot of 
fun to do this at the end of a good meal. We share the books with each other 
during the year and often they end up being a pick for someone's month. 

Gone Girl was a hard fought battle and everyone wanted to read it first, for 
good reason. This in one twisted psychological thriller! Just when you 
think you have figured out what is going on, you are turned in another 
direction and totally lost again. This one had me fooled up to the end and 
then I was not ready for it to be over. 

Nick & Amy Dunne are getting ready to celebrate their 5th wedding anniversary
when she disappears. They seem to be the perfect couple. As the police investigate and Amy's diary is revealed, a different picture of their marriage emerges. Nick swears his innocence and his twin sister, Margo, is trying to solve this with him, but Nick 
seems to be digging a deeper hole for his guilt with each step. This will confuse 
and intrigue you but definitely keep you glued to every page until the end!
