The GH Readers’ book choice for April 2013 is “Gone Girl” by Gillian Flynn.

Critically acclaimed suspense writer Gillian Flynn’s unputdownable new novel is about about a marriage gone terribly, terribly wrong. “Gone Girl”’s toxic mix of sharp-edged wit and deliciously chilling prose creates a nerve-fraying thriller that confounds you at every turn.

On a warm summer morning in North Carthage, Missouri, it is Nick and Amy Dunne’s fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick’s clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented mansion on the Mississippi River. Nick’s behaviour is oddly evasive, and he’s definitely bitter —but could he really be a killer? As the cops close in, every couple in town is soon wondering how well they know the one that they love.

With her razor-sharp writing and trademark psychological insight, Gillian Flynn delivers a fast-paced, devilishly dark, and ingeniously plotted thriller that confirms her status as one of the hottest writers around.

The discussion will be on Thursday 11th April at 8:00 pm in the Village Hall. Further details from petermorrill@gmail.com or ring Peter on 331162.
