"Gone Girl" by Gillian Flynn ***

  • Audiobook
  • Originally published 2012
  • USA author
  • Review:   Well, where to start?  Double-double crosses?  Meta-metaphor for gamesmanship between the sexes?  Between husbands and wives?  A tale of mental ill health?  A clever murder-non-murder mystery?  Despite being somewhat overblown, I was very engaged in this story.  Some sections made me cringe a bit with gratuitous graphic sex...don't mind non-gratuitous graphic sex, but it seemed contrived at several points.  I think the clever plot twists merit the attention this title has received, but the writing is otherwise run of the mill.
