TRUST THE DARKNESS: The (Juicy) Bestseller I Can’t Wait to Sink My Teeth Into

You know those of-the-moment novels that you always feel compelled to diligently seek out at the bookstore – or purchase online – simply on account of the impossibly glowing reviews and passionate word-of-mouth that prove too persuasive to ignore? Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl is the latest to have cast such a spell on me. 

All of this past summer heading into fall I kept hearing one constant refrain about this “devilishly dark” psychological thriller centred on a marriage gone horribly wrong: Read this book! 

“Calling Gone Girl a psychological thriller is an understatement. It is far darker, more twisted, and creepier than you can imagine,” reports’s Caley Anderson. “Gone Girl is masterfully plotted, and the suspense doesn’t waver for a single page. It’s one of those books you will feel the need to discuss as soon as you finish it, because the ending doesn’t just come – it punches you in the gut.” 

Kirkus agrees, “[It’s] one of those rare thrillers whose revelations actually intensify its suspense instead of dissipating it. The final pages are chilling.” Publisher’s Weekly also gave the novel two big thumbs up: “Compulsively readable, creepily unforgettable, this is a must read for any fan of bad girls and good writing.”
