Gone Girl - Gillian Flynn - Review

Thursday, 2 October 2014


WOW! From the moment I started reading this book I was hooked. I hate over hyped books that don't live up to the expectation but I loved Gone Girl. It is most definitely a book of two halves that I, maybe being naive and blind, most definitely did not see the twist coming. 

The book centres around a husband who's wife goes missing the day of their 5th wedding anniversary. Of course the husband is the main suspect and the weave of lies he is creating doesn't help his case. All the clues point to him but the revelations of some of Nick's wife, Amy's past start to get you thinking, maybe not all is as it seems.

Every time a new character was introduced or someone from Amy's past mentioned something unusual I suspected them. Again I don't know if I was too engrossed in the book to realise what was actually going on but I thoroughly enjoyed it!

Now on to the ending, it wasn't what I wanted to happen, and it did leave me feeling like there was another story ready to be told. Hopefully we will have a sequel sometime soon. But I feel like it did fit in with the characters and how they would maybe react to the situation. It was never going to be an easy happy ending and I think I am OK with that. 

Have you read Gone Girl? What was your thoughts?
