Run Don't Walk

I know I am way behind in blogging. Alas, that is what happens when your sister gets married. Anyway, I am catching back up with life, and hopefully you will hear more from me.

In the meantime, go check out the Gillian Flynn novel, Gone Girl. I finished this book a few days ago and was absolutely wow-ed. I had been hearing about it for a while and finally I was next up at the waiting list at the library.

Here's a hint: if you are at all inclined to purchase books, either in paper or e-book form, do it. It is a satisfying read and the waiting lists are insanely long. A friend of mine is number 480 on the waiting list at here local library. That means over a year of waiting.You need to read it before then.

My other reason for urging you to read this book is because it is going to be made into a movie. I just found this out. I do think it will make a great movie, but I also think that you can never get back the first experience of this novel--without seeing any previews or having preconceived ideas of the characters.

Oh, and what's the book about? Marriage, kidnapping, crime. You need more than that? On Nick and Amy's fifth anniversary Amy goes missing. Both are unreliable narrators. No need to know more than that.
