[Book Review] GONE, GIRL by Gillian Flynn


Andrea reviews GONE, GIRL by Gillian Flynn (Crown, 2012)
New York natives, Nick and Amy Dunne, have moved to Hannibal, Missouri (“Mark Twain’s hometown!” the natives scream so proudly) to take care of Nick’s father who has dementia. Upon arrival, the two seem to be the all-American golden couple with their mutual good looks and perfect marriage.

Unfortunately, things are not always as they seem. On the morning of the couple’s fifth anniversary, Amy is missing, the house in complete disarray, and detectives find a diary chronicling Nick’s abusive behavior. The case seems pretty cut and dry, right?  Wrong!

With its darkly peculiar twists and turns and engrossingly psychotic characters, Gone, Girl is one of the most compelling novels I have read in a long, long time. Readers will certainly be enthralled with the latest bestseller from Gillian Flynn.

*Gone, Girl was voted "Best Mystery and Thriller" of the year by Goodreads users.
