Evening my fellow book bloggers. Just a warning now you may be hearing a lot from me this evening! I have set myself up to stay the night in the library. I know this is normally frowned on however I have spent weeks on this essay and am just having a panic on how good it is even though it is written, checked, checked again, and referenced. This year has started to have a real effect on me and not knowing how good my essays are is really scaring me. So fuelled by energy drink and cold pizza I will fight through and commandeer Collingwood. Wow, that sounds odd. Any way back on target today’s question! So the question is…. ‘The most surprising plot twist or ending.’
I had a number of answers for this question…firstly I thought of my Sister’s Keeper, the heart wrenching twist at the end foiled me completely I hadn’t even entertained the ‘twist!’ I was totally captured by the story leaving me speechless with tears rolling down my whimpering cheeks!
However I found another book that I will be reviewing later in the month and I’d love you all to read that so we can have a discussion on the book as a whole. The book I have chosen is ‘Gone Girl, by Gillian Flynn
‘On a warm summer morning in North Carthage, Missouri, it is Nick and Amy Dunne’s fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick’s clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn’t doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams about the slope and shape of his wife’s head, but passages from Amy’s diary reveal the alpha-girl perfectionist could have put anyone dangerously on edge. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media—as well as Amy’s fiercely doting parents—the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he’s definitely bitter—but is he really a killer?
As the cops close in, every couple in town is soon wondering how well they know the one that they love. With his twin sister, Margo, at his side, Nick stands by his innocence. Trouble is, if Nick didn’t do it, where is that beautiful wife? And what was in that silvery gift box hidden in the back of her bedroom closet?’
That’s all I’m giving you; any more with ruin it entirely! Get a copy and snuggle down with a glass of wine. You might need it for this one!
