Episode 119

I’ve been waiting for someone to choose this book for SO LONG!
Today, V.P. Morris, an award-winning thriller author, joined me to talk about the book everyone loves, hates, or loves to hate. I fall firmly into the love category, and I loved re-reading it to see if Gillian Flynn’s twisty masterpiece holds up to a re-read. Along the way, V.P and I discussed unreliable narrators and why shady women are so interesting. 
I have to give you an official spoiler warning: VP  and I decided there is really no way to discuss this book without discussing the twists. So if you haven’t read Gone Girl, I suggest you go do it now, and then come back and listen to this episode. It’s well worth your time!
