Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn

Pages: 422
Goodreads rating: 3.96/5 stars
My rating: 3.5/5 stars
Genre: Adult, Suspense,  Mystery/Thriller

Summary (Goodreads):

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?

My Review:

Review also posted on goodreads.

 I like Gone Girl , but I must admit that I wasn't really a fan of the writing style. I had a hard time getting into the story. 

It is one dark mystery novel with a f*cked up couple. Seriously, Nick Dunne and Amy Elliot- Dunne is the craziest, most f*cked up couple I have ever encountered in a book. I simply love the twists in this book, and the clues of Amazing Amy? HELL YES! I freaking love Amy Dunne! That woman is a deadly snake and she definitely belongs to my 'Best Badass Heroines' list. 

I hate Nick Dunne btw, but I feel sorry for him. Lesson learned: Don't mess with Amazing Amy.

  1. Amy Dunne is an amazing character. She is definitely bad ass, and she has an eye for detail. This book had me gaping with astonishment many times, haha.
