Today, I woke up late. Just like how I wanted to start (or shorten) my non-working holiday. Hooray! I'm a super-early morning person 5 days a week with a sleep-deprived side-effect. :-) So, I guess it's no surprise that my body clock will horizontally adjust to my bed, just like the way it was then, sans work or mommy duties.

And because I have a badge to do nothing much today, I'm gonna share to you my good read of another recommendable book pick - Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn.

This book is a major success of the author as she got herself on the 3rd spot of The New York Times Best Seller's list for combined print and e-book fiction, as of this writing. That popularity being said, means I have all the enthusiasm to read it even without a clue of this book. I'm a fan of mystery, by the way, which I've revealed on my We Waited Until Dark post which is about an original Audrey Hepburn's classic movie adapted into play.


Anyway, back to Gone Girl. This is a thriller story, narrated in a combination of he-said, she-said events of the husband named Nick and written cute poetic proses of a wife named Amy on her diary. A clueless reader, like I was, will be drawn to Amy's sweet and loving character and will begin to have strong dislike on his husband Nick as one turn pages after pages. But hep, hep! There is a very big twist on this story. And for that I've got to tell you this early that it's NOT for the teens. You've got to be a really matured person to carry Flynn's depiction of mystery and meanness on the story's characters as her narration goes from something hopeful to a gone so, so wrong. Sickening, to be exact. It got me into thinking, how marriage of two individuals can sometimes got too complex to understand and that it can possibly create or just awaken a monster on each one.

Be warned. This is not just a suspense crime novel. And for that, I'm still gonna suggest it to all of you whom I hope is beyond teen's age. Haha! Anyway, I don't think the teens would bother to such themes as dishonesty, devious media and unhappiness due to bad economy (read as, sad realities of the present times). So, there you have it! Read. Be entertained and be disturbed. Very disturbed!
