Book Review: Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn

To unknowing outsiders, Nick and Amy Dunne have the perfect marriage. Beautiful, bright people in the prime of their lives. And then Amy goes missing on the morning of their 5th wedding anniversary. What happens next is a roller coaster ride of suspense and terror traveling into tunnels of some of the darkest relationship drama I’ve ever experienced. Never before have two people manipulated each other so thoroughly under the guise of love and support.

The novel starts a bit slow and then takes off at a break neck speed. When you come upon the first twist, you feel as if the air has been knocked out of you. As soon as you make a decision about one person, something comes up that will not only change your mind but make you question your judge of character. I’ve never been so entertained by being fooled and I’ve never had so much fun with crazy. I’ve also never disliked two people more while still needing to know every detail of what happens between them.

Gone Girl is dark and fun. A great summer read, perfect for the beach. Just be sure set aside some time because once you pick it up, it will be impossible to put down.
