Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn – Book Review

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
Published by Crown, an imprint of Random House

Once upon a time, Nick and Amy were happy. or at least they seemed to be. By the time they both lost their jobs and left Manhattan to move to Nick’s hometown of North Carthage, Missouri and take care of his ailing mother, that happiness was gone. There were a couple good years, but half of their five year marriage has been more or less miserable. Then, early afternoon on their fifth anniversary Nick gets a call from a neighbor that his front door is sitting wide open. When Nick returns home, he finds his wife missing and signs of a struggle. Amy is just…gone.

There is not much that can be said about Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl without spoiling it, but it is an incredibly engaging roller coaster of a book. Flynn has written a book full of twists, turns, and suspicious behavior. Nick and Amy both have secrets, and the reader can never quite completely figure out what is happening, and even if you do happen to guess correctly, motivations will still shock.

Gone Girl is deliciously twisted, and I can’t wait to explore Gillian Flynn’s backlist. Highly recommended.
