The theme for the Book of the Month in February are books that will be adapted into films in 2014. Based on Buzz Feed's list, Thousanders selected Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn to read in February.
Gone Girl is a highly praised thriller about the disappearance of a woman named Amy. Her husband of five years, Nick, quickly becomes the prime suspect and what follows is a twisted and intricate narrative with a promise to surprise at the end.
Praise for Gone Girl:
“Ms. Flynn writes dark suspense novels that anatomize violence without splashing barrels of blood around the pages… But as in her other books, Ms. Flynn has much more up her sleeve than a simple missing-person case. As Nick and Amy's alternately tell their stories, marriage has never looked so menacing, narrators so unreliable.”
—Wall Street Journal
“An irresistible summer thriller with a twisting plot worthy of Alfred Hitchcock. Burrowing deep into the murkiest corners of the human psyche, this delectable summer read will give you the creeps and keep you on edge until the last page.”
—People (four stars)
