First Lines of "Gone Girl"

"When I think of my wife, I always think of her heard. The shape of it, to begin with. The very first time I saw her, it was the back of the head I saw, and there was something lovely about it, the angles of it. Like a shiny, hard corn kernel or a riverbed fossil. She had what the Victorians would call a finely shaped head. You could imagine the skull quite easily."

- Gillian Flynn, from Gone Girl.

An incredibly fun book. Ripped through the second half of it in a sleep-deprived three-day fever dream. More thoughts on it coming soon.
