Book #41 Read in 2013
Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
I do not think I have ever read a book that had as main characters such unlikable people as this book did; Nick and Amy are nasty. That being said, this book was like a train wreck and I could not look away; I had to keep reading to find out what happened. On their fifth wedding anniversary, Amy goes missing. Shortly thereafter, the police and the media are looking at Nick as the person who made Amy disappear. He had cheated on her, emotionally withdrawn from her and, according to Amy's found diary, physically abused her at times. But did Nick really kill her?
This book had tons of twists and turns to keep readers engaged. I was rooting for both Nick and Amy to get their just desserts. This was a good mystery and I recommend it. It seems to be one of those books that people either love or hate; I was more on the love side.
