If you are looking for a quick and absorbing thriller to read on your next flight, grab a copy of Gone Girl, by Gillian Flynn. This roller coaster novel of love, anger, confusion and mystery will surely keep you turning the pages.

Need another reason to read Gone Girl? You might want to read the “real” ending before the October movie release. The author is admitting to big changes for the ending of the movie adaptation starring Ben Affleck. Flynn told Entertainment Weekly, that there “was something thrilling about taking this piece of work that I’d spent about two years painstakingly putting together with all its eight million LEGO pieces and take a hammer to it and bash it apart and reassemble it into a movie.”

Summary: 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. Nick is not “husband of the year.” Nick is oddly evasive, but is he really a killer?
