    Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn

    I'm totally hooked on this book. I saw someone out there reading it but don't remember who it was.
    Thanks though for bringing it to my attention. Have you read any of the other books by her and are they just as good?

    No I haven't, but am always on the lookout for a good book. I'll put this on my ebook list. My daughter is a librarian (law librarian but still loves any book.) and she gives me lots of ideas also.
    Have a great day sewing and remember to "not sweat the small stuff"!!

    It was of the best fiction books I've read in quite a while and that's saying something since I read several books most weeks, both fiction and non-fiction. I hated to see it end.

    I read all her other books. Sharp Objects was my favorite.

    We discussed the book in Jan. http://www.quiltingboard.com/general...l-t212285.html

    I started reading this book because I heard so many good things - but I cannot get into it - maybe it gets better - tell me that it gets better.

    I am currently reading The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks. It's fascinating, but disturbing.

    I thought The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks was very good too. It was a real eye opener. I'm about 3/4 through Gone Girl now and still enjoying it. I heard some people didn't like the ending though. I'll let everyone know what I think when I get there.

    It took me a few pages to get into it too but for me it was worth it. Hope you feel the same way.

    I'm reading the English set of books about Burracombe. It's set in a small village just after World War 2. Very good.

    Yes, it is disturbing and one wonders what all we sign away today to get service at the doctors and hospitals...so many forms and so little time to read them all during an emergency.

    Can you share the title of one of these books? Love reading about that time of history even if it is fictional. :-)

    I am so glad to find someone else that has reading or is reading this! I am totally hooked. Im about mid way now. I have stuff to do today including a quilt to finish, but ........... I read her first book Sharp Objects which was brilliant and I have Dark Places ready to go. At this rate I may never get anything done again!

    Thanks everyone for the input on Gillian Flyn's other books. I'm going to put them on hold at my library today. I'm almost finished with Gone Girl.

    I picked up this book at the local library thinking I would enjoy it as I am a widow. Partway through I sat down to watch Katie Courak (sp) show and low and behold she had the 6 ladies on that the book was written about! One of the six was the author. can't remember her name. Good book

    I have read all of her books. Her most recent is very good. You think about them long after you finish reading them.

    I got into the book and couldn't put it down but I didn't really care for the end. But it did keep me reading, finished it in a couple of days.
