Staff Reviews





This book is a little crazy...but crazy fun to read! It might even make you glance at the one next to you and wonder, “Do I really know this person?” Creepy yet perfectly alluring, Gone Girl will absorb you into every page until you start to feel a little unhinged yourself.

Gone Girl is Gillian Flynn’s breakout novel. This stunningly dark thriller is brilliant. There’ve been ‘missing wife’ novels written before where the husband is suspect #1 but this one will snatch you and test your ability to hold on through the ride. The wife (Amy) and husband (Nick) tell their stories through alternating voices (Amy by journals) that when put together form this skillful thriller is sure to become a genre classic.

“Told from the alternating perspectives of Amy and Nick whose marriage is falling apart in small-town Missouri, this is first a story of perfect young love in Manhattan, followed by its slow disintegration after both partners lose their jobs and move to Nick's hometown to help his family through his mother's terminal illness. When Amy disappears, who is innocent and who is guilty? Slowly, each spouse's lies and deceptions are laid bare until the real foundation of their relationship is revealed. A tale reminiscent of Scott Turow, with a veneer of crazy all its own!”

Description


The #1 "New York Times" Bestseller
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?
