Gone Girl / Book Review

When my bestie James recommended me this book I must confess i was a little skeptical, I mean, usually we have similar taste in books and series and lots of things, but since she told me I needed to read "50 shade of Gray" and the other 2 books, and i couldn't even read half the book before quit, -still can't get why people love the book- well i have my reservations. Still i decided to give it a try, and let me tell you, even when in parts i wanted to slap both Amy and Nick, the book is sick, twisted and really enjoyable.


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 from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. 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? 
As the cops close in, every couple in town is soon wondering how well they know the one that they love. 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?


The book is narrated in Nick's and Amy's point of view, and little by little you discover more and more about the secrets and true personality of the characters, and their motives to do or not do what they accused or suspects of being responsible.
Gillian Flynn in my opinion made a great combination of suspense with rich characters. I'm currently reading Sharp Objects, her second novel, which probably i'm going to review next week -if i can finish it in time.
