Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl is #1 on the Indie Fiction Best Seller list  for the fifth week in a row. Sales are still climbing, as indicated by the USA Today list, where it rises to #4, from #6 last week, breaking through the Hunger Games blockade. Now all that stands between it and #1 on that list are the three Fifty Shades titles.

USA Today‘s Bob Minzesheimer looks into the reason Flynn’s third novel is her breakout, quoting Jackie Blem of  Denver’s revered Tattered Cover bookstore,

What is different about Gone Girl is she creates one story, carefully, with great detail, all very believable, and then turns all of it on its ear. The magic of this book, for the reader, is that there is actually two unreliable narrators and multiple versions of every event.
