Review: Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn

Gone Girl

Author: Gillian Flynn

Genre: Adult, Mystery-Thriller

Published Date: May 24th 2012 by Weidenfeld & Nicolson

Format: Hardcover

Source: Library



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. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn't doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams about the slope and shape of his wife's head, but passages from Amy's diary reveal the alpha-girl perfectionist could have put anyone dangerously on edge. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media--as well as Amy's fiercely doting parents--the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he's definitely bitter--but is he really a killer?

As the cops close in, every couple in town is soon wondering how well they know the one that they love. With his twin sister, Margo, at his side, Nick stands by his innocence. Trouble is, if Nick didn't do it, where is that beautiful wife? And what was in that silvery gift box hidden in the back of her bedroom closet?

My Thoughts

Wow wow wow just wow I am totally dumbstruck that I don't now what to write down on this review first I would like to say I decided to read Gone Girl because it is one of the books turned into movies I am trying to read as many books that are going to be in the movies and Gone Girl was one of them and let just say it is not a book that I usually read but it was quite refreshing and kept me interested and super surprised until the very end let me tell you I read Gone Girl in six days not that it didn't keep me interested it kept my interested all right to the very beginning to the end it just one of those books that you have to take everything in the plot, the world building and the characters and Omgoodness the plot was so good I couldn't help but to love and enjoyed it I could not put the book down especially all the twist and turns in the book with the clues that Nick was hunted down from the treasure hunt that Amy did for him for there fifth anniversary before she went missing and when he finally got all the clues and figure them all out just just that is was freaking brilliant! I don't want to spoil it for anybody just read Gone Girl and find out I am only going to say just that Nick and Amy marriage is so toxic so nuclear that I felt that it was going to explode at any moment while I was reading Gone Girl especially with an ending like that! I highly recommande Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn it is a Fantastic dark read I really did loved and enjoyed a lot! well until next time my friends!
