Book Review: Gone Girl By Gillian Flynn

It's time for another book review and today's review it's a thriller; it's not a genre that I usually read if you have been following my blog and reading my reviews for a while now.  But, this is how I got to read this book; I was at work and 2 of my coworkers started talking about the movie Gone Girl and they were recommending it to me to watch it and of course I cannot watch the movie without reading the book first, so...I picked up the book and read it in a couple days.  And it was a very interesting book, let me tell you...let's get to the review:

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn



The morning of their fifth wedding anniversary, Nick Dunne gets a call from a neighbor telling him that his front door is open?  And that's strange, because that is never left open, is his wife Amy home? Asked his neighbor.  Nick tells him that he is going home to check it out.  When he gets home, not only he finds his front door open, he doesn't find his wife anywhere and worst, his living room is torn apart.  First he looks for his wife all over the house and outside in the backyard, when he finally realizes that she isn't home and that something may actually have happened to her he calls the cops.  When the cops arrive they check the whole house again, question Nick a thousand times and then they leave.  But Nick is not off the hook.  

As the days progress and Amy is nowhere to be found, the cops keep coming back to question Nick, and they start questioning the neighbors.  Amy's friends start revealing that she was afraid of her husband and that she was keeping secrets from him.  Nick denies it all.  The cops keep investigating; they find strange searches in his home computer which he also denies it.  Nick also keeps getting persistent calls on his cell phone, who are they from?

At first, people believe Nick is innocent but as the days drag and more evidence show up against him, people start to believe that maybe Nick is to blame?

But is it true? What really happened to Amy?  Where is Amy?  Is Amy really who we all think she is?

Be prepared to get twist after twist in this novel.  I went totally blind reading this book and if you haven't read or watched the movie, please go blind too.  Because you will love finding out the twists, well maybe not LOVE it, but you will get to experience all the feelings that you should to understand and love this book.

5 out of 5 stars for this book, loved it.  Really well written, I didn't see where it was going at all and loved how it was played out.  The end?  Well, I wasn't too happy about it, but wicked that it was.

XOXO,
