I picked up Gone Girl because of the rave reviews and that fact that its a thriller or mystery. *spoiler alert* I liked the "unreliable narration" concept, which is the key in this novel, and ends up bringing in the major twist in the story. I know its a fiction, but the fact that the female character planned everything with such fine detail (keeping the long strand of her hair for future use before chopping it all off, felt like a little too much) and the cops couldn't find anything against her seemed impossible to me. But i did appreciate the twists, the suspense in the story, and how she tricked her husband into believing she loved him with her clues, but the truth is that it was all a ruse to get him convicted with all the evidence pointing towards him. I was looking for something to happen all along, and in the end nothing did. They just went on with their lives. So, that did not excite me. Guess, i am a sucker for some action.
The Girl Who Disappeared Twice' by Andrea Kane. I know nothing about this book, about the author, whether this is a series, etc, i just randomly picked it up at the library. Lets see how this one goes. What are you reading currently?
On a completely unrelated note, today Nobel Peace Prize was awarded to two people, One Malala who fights for children's education, and other Satyarthi, who fights against child labor. Children are the future, and we must strive hard to protect them, and to keep them headed in the right direction by educating them. Check out Malala's speech here.
Have a great weekend! xo, Hems
