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. 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?
This book shocked me. More than anything else, I was shocked.
Gillian Flynn is a very good writer.
The book starts of slow. Not really slow, but it is well paced.
This is no fast-paced novel. She takes her time to lead you through the story and you’re sucked into the book.
Then you’re hit by a curve ball and in your mind, you’re thinking “Sorry, What!”. (But in a good way).
This is one very interesting book. It keeps you on your toes and you can not possibly begin to imagine what would happen next.
I liked the characters. They were well written. I hardly remember the names of book characters – they’re all forgotten 5 minutes after I close the book. But, with this book, I could give you an accurate description of the major characters.
I’d recommend this to anyone who enjoys a good thriller and likes suspense.
