Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn

0806_gone_425As I opened this book I heard a lot of great reviews and a lot of bad I had to see for my self here’s a brief summary.

“On a warm summer morning in North Carthage, Missouri, it is Nick and Amy’s fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick Dunne’s clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick Dunne isn’t doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams about the slope and shape of his wife’s head, but hearing from Amy through flashbacks in her diary reveal the perky 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 left in that silvery gift box hidden in the back of her bedroom closet?”

I just finished this book last night and I will tell you it’s a roller coaster full of suspense, suspicion, lies, and yes love. The title when I first read I thought oh it’s about a girl that’s been kidnapped but as I read through the book the meaning if the phrase changed for me. The story starts off with Nick and Amy Dunne, their having a rough time in there marriage they have both lost their jobs and parents are sick, on there fifth anniversary Amy disappears and the the beginning half of the book your really getting to know Amy and Nick and the ins and outs of their relationship, it alternates between Nick’s voice and Amy’s voice through her diary. The longer that Amy is missing the more people are starting to look at Nick and that’s where everything gets interesting, and the story takes an crazy shift, but I don’t want to tell to much. By the end of this book I was exhausted and kind of confused. The ending was not what I thought it would be, it took me by surprise. If your wondering what happens in the end, well I’m not gonna tell go pick it up and read it you will no be disappointed.

The next book I’m reading is a classic in American literature: The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald.

Peace,

Sarah 💙💚💛💜❤💗💋
