Goal - 24 books Book #15 - Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn - I flew through this one pretty quick because it was really hard to put down. At first, I could find no protagonist. I didn't like any of the characters but was still being pulled into the story. By the end of the book, I still didn't like any of the characters but I understood why and I appreciated the way they were developed. I know some people don't like the ending itself. It's not a gratifying conclusion but at least it's not cliche. The author had several opportunities to take the easy out and she chose to give the story one more twist. Great Book! Next up - Old Man's War by John Scalzi - I got this as a part of an indie publisher bundle (probably StoryBundle or Humble eBook Bundle) about a year ago. I'm not usually a big fan of sci-fi. The summary makes it sound like "Ender's Game" with senior citizens. The reviews are high but my expectations are low.
