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?

This book revolves around Nick and Amy, two writers that get married. The marriage was great in the beginning but they were facing some problems when Amy suddenly disappeared.

I really liked the book because while it was accompanying Nick throughout the investigation it had some pages from Amy’s perspective through the years that gave us some background on their relationship.

It is wonderfully written and I think Gillian Flynn really nailed it with this book making her stand out in the genre.

If you like mystery you should definitely try Gone Girl because for me it’s really worth it. I can’t wait to read the rest of Gillian Flynn’s books.

Rating: 5 stars

  1. Have you seen the movie? I liked the book much much more! I haven’t read any other of her books yet but they are on my TBR. Have you read Mary Kubica? You would probably like hers too if you liked Gone Girl. I have summaries on my blog under books if you want to check them out! Xoxo
