Book Review: Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn

What this book is about:

It's Nick and Amy Dunne's fifth wedding anniversary. The clever and beautiful wife, Amy goes missing on this same day. At first, everyone thinks someone broke in and kidnapped her, but then things take a nasty turn when the evidence starts to point toward Nick. Even though nick does seem to be a bit unemotional and detached from what's going on, does that automatically make him a killer? Everyone in town seems to think that he could have done this, but he swears that he's innocent.


This was a very interesting read. At the beginning of the story, I didn't really much care for Nick or for Amy. They seemed like people who I definitely wouldn't get along with, but that didn't make me want to put this book down. I was sucked in from the beginning and then, boy there was the TWIST in the storyline and I was like an addict. I had to see what was going to happen next. How was this story going to end? I was up late at night reading just so I could get that much closer to seeing what would happen. I couldn't believe how crazy Amy was! She was a freaking psycho! I definitely couldn't see how anyone could stand her. But I guess, Nick and Amy were basically meant for each other. By the end of the book, I was almost literally exhausted from the crazy ride. I've never read anything quite like this book and I'd definitely want to read more from this author in the future. 

I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested to know what the heck I'm babbling about and wants to see what all the fuss is over this crazy thriller of a book. 

Overall, I gave this book a 4 out of 5 stars.
