I've taken the librarything.com 100-book reading challange for 2016. I'm already behind.
Gone Girl" last year after having seen the movie based on it. The story is told in three voices. Libby Day is a 30-something woman whose family was brutally murdered when she was 7-years-old. As you might expect she's still a bit disturbed. She comes in contact with a group of people who are convinced that the convicted killer, Libby's brother Ben, is innocent. The second voice is Ben Day. His story is told from his perspective on the day of the murder when he was 15 years old. He narrates his day from when he got up until the murders happen after midnight. The third voice is Patty Day, Libby's and Ben's mother. She also narrates the murder day. In much the same way as she did in "Gone Girl", we see multiple parts of the story, Libby's memories of the day, and Ben's and Patty's views of the same events but through entirely different lenses. The ending felt a bit contrived as I don't think Flynn set it up well, but I liked the book. I plan to read her first book this year.
