Book Review: Gone Girl By Gillian Flynn

If you don’t count the “50 Shades” books (which I have no interest in reading–sorry, I’m not sorry!), Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn was the book that everyone seemed to be reading and recommending this summer.

Once I started reading it, I understood why. It was quite a page-turner with just enough twists and turns to keep me up late reading.

The story starts on Nick and Amy’s fifth wedding anniversary, when Amy disappears. The husband is always a suspect and Nick doesn’t do himself any favors.

What happens when your wife goes missing and you are a jerk?

It’s a whodunit told in chapters that alternate between Nick and Amy’s diary–and you never know whom to believe. I won’t even hint at any spoilers, but I will say that the story gets satisfyingly Revenge-y with each dark plot development.

Speaking of Revenge, who else is excited for season 2?
