Kate Says: "Reading Is Fun!"

Like most of you I'm an avid reader. I'm hoping to re-connect with old friends, make new friends, and of course spread the love of reading and writing around to everyone!

Gone Girl

Gone Girl - Gillian Flynn LOLITA
CATCHER IN THE RYE
And now GONE GIRL
all have unreliable narrators. The only difference between the first two books and GONE GIRL is that the narrators have become a little more reliably unreliable and a whole lot nastier. We've all become more cynical in this post-modernism world, so we expect our narrators to be more complex and in this tome both Nick and Amy Dunne, deliver the goods.

It's a story full of malevolence - not to mention duplicity, delusion, and even derangement. In reading the novel, complete with plot surprises, these two have become unforgettable characters that use humor to counter the blackness; bleakness of what's really going on.

Gillian Flynn has made these tricksy first person characters both intriguing and entertaining. This is definitely a book that will stick in your craw long after you finish the last page.
