Greetings Fellow Readers!
I hope every had a good Halloween. Today I will be reviewing another mystery story, with murder, and suspense all rolled into one. Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn, will take you on a wild ride, where you will have to guess who did it, and try to figure out what is really going on. This story was also made into a movie, which I watched after reading the book, and it wasn’t a bad movie, however you get more of the story from the book.
The description of the story was taken from the Goodreads website:
“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?”
What would you do if your wife suddenly disappeared and people started digging into your personal life? Nick has always been seen as the perfect husband, who loved Amy, and would do anything for her. However, when she disappears on their fifth wedding anniversary, and his odd behavior starts showing, he will be put under a microscope. When the police read Amy’s diary they find a different story than what everyone in town has been led to believe. This begins a game of who did it, and people wondering could Nick really kill his wife and hide the evidence.
Gillian takes the reader down a dark rabbit hole of intrigue, deceit, lies, cover up, and murder. This is such a twisted story, that it will leave the reader guessing what truly happened until the very end when everything is reveled. Even if you have watched the movie and know how it is going to end, I still recommend that you read the book. With the book you are able to see a more in depth view of the story than what the movie shows you. Gillian takes you on the craziest ride of your life, that you won’t want to get off of. This is a must read for anyone who likes mystery stories, because you will be trying to solve one of the biggest mystery’s of all time. What really happened to Amy?
Enjoy this dark ride my friends!
