Author - Gillian Flynn
Title - Gone Girl
Stars - 4
On Nick and Amy’s fifth wedding anniversary she disappears from their home on the Mississippi River. Passages from Amy's diary reveal she could have put anyone dangerously on edge. Nick is oddly evasive, and he’s definitely bitter, but is he really a killer?
With his twin sister, Margo, at his side, Nick stands by his innocence. Trouble is, if Nick didn’t do it, where is that beautiful wife? And what was in that silvery gift box hidden in the back of her bedroom closet?
In Gone Girl, the characters unfold, bit by bit, and in unexpected ways, that keep you reading. The question is generally, "Can we ever really know another human being?" This book actually probes further and we find ourselves asking, "Can we ever really know ourselves. What are we capable of? The way the story ends clinches what a sickening liaison Nick and Amy had.
A book well worth reading... But be aware that Gone Girl contains coarse language as well as violence and sexual content.
