Gone Girl

Paula Walters - Monday, October 15, 2012

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn is a psychological thriller about a marriage that has gone wrong.  Amy and Nick have been married for five years.  Both have lost their New York magazine jobs as journalists. They decide to move from their Brooklyn home, which Amy loves, to Nick's hometown, Carthage  Missouri.  Nick and his twin sister have bought a bar, which takes up a lot of Nick's time.  Nick's mother is dying from cancer, and the couple are also helping Amy's parents financially.  Her parents made their money from writing a children's book series, Amazing Amy, based on their daughter, or based on a fictional character that Amy thinks they wished their daughter would be.  Due to the popularity of the series Amy has a trust fund which she is now using to help her parents.  Nick and Amy are a couple that are going through a lot of changes in their life. On their fifth wedding anniversary Nick arrives home and finds the front door wide open.  In the living room there is a sign of a struggle, in the kitchen signs of blood that has been cleaned but not completely and Amy has disappeared.  As the investigation begins, even without a body people are assuming that Amy has been murdered.  In the early stages of the investigation no one believes that Nick could be guilty of the crime.  However as the investigation continues he certainly seems to be guilty, and the only person who believes in his innocence is his twin sister.  Every anniversary Amy has made up a scavenger hunt for Nick taking him all over town, and eventually at the end he will discover his anniversary present.  This year is no exception.  While the police are investigating this disappearance, Nick is following Amy's clues in her current scavenger hunt. The novel goes back and forth from Nick's day by day existence since the disappearance, to excerpts from Amy's journal. There are many twists in this novel that I did not expect.  Although I am not a reader of thrillers I did enjoy this novel and would highly recommend it.   I would like to hear from others that have read this book, especially those of you who do love thrillers.  What did you think?

Elderly people, disabled persons, etc. They give you with housing assistance, tuition assistance and employment assistance among other activities.

These single mother grants could be very helpful plus they make everyday purchases simple.

If you have a very home that requires repairs or perhaps in desperate need of your remodel, check into refinancing your mortgage
which has a FHA insured loan that will allow that you borrow the money that you must make the improvements.
The grants may help you so that you are able to afford the education you need for any successful career.

While for the program you happen to be given the chance to purchase a home.
This will lower the deposit and can even reduce the closing costs.
Being just one single mom won't indicate life has to become hard. When they complete their education they'll be capable to
find better jobs with better salaries. Keeping your Home.

This includes your ss #, tax information, passport information, bank statements etc.
If you might be not getting anywhere, contact Habitat for
Humanity for more assistance in purchasing or constructing a home.
Mortgage Assistance - Fact or Fiction. Buying the home
is as much about security as it is about financial investing.
Grants are different from loans simply because they are
basically a financial form of gift.

It was exaggerated in my circumstances because I could possibly not vanish entirely into the position of
mother daily as I was lacking a young child with us full

time. * You have to be a U. There are programs providing help for
single mothers to buy a home. Both government and personal


agencies offer single moms the chance to provide stability for his or her children.
You can receive grants from the federal government and from different

colleges and organizations.

Everything said made a great deal of sense. But, what about
this? what if you composed a catchier post title?
I am not suggesting your information isn't solid., but suppose you added something that grabbed a person's attention?
I mean Gone Girl is kinda boring. You could look at Yahoo's home page and see how they create article headlines to grab people to click. You might add a related video or a related pic or two to grab readers interested about what you've written.
Just my opinion, it could bring your blog a little livelier.

This is the perfect web site for anyone who hopes to find out about this topic.
You realize so much its almost hard to argue with you
(not that I actually will need to…HaHa). You certainly put a brand new spin on a subject that has been written about for a long time.
Excellent stuff, just great!

Very enlightening, look ahead to coming back again.

They the fact that the maximum men're those who find themselves respectful. They provide quality housing and buying to deserving people. Many single moms are now being financially helped with the States government by means of government grants for women for unmarried parents. Look into your state's
website and see what they can offer. Select the one parent home grant that you just think
means your preferences.

While this will likely seem impossible, it might
be done, especially as there is assistance available. Another type
of grants for single parents are Pell grants that you
can use for if you are interested in continuing your education.
gov , a federal clearinghouse on not only home grants.

Take advantage from the programs that are available through HUD so that you don't lose your own home during these financially difficult times. They can take advantage of scholarships and grants offered to them by government entities to chase their dreams.
