It might be old news for you, but I’ve just finished reading “Gone Girl” by Gillian Flynn. This book was first published in Great Britain in 2012 and has also been made into a movie. I haven’t seen the movie…yet.
It all started a few months ago when I went to the movies to see “Girl on a Train”. Loved it. Then when I was looking for my next book to read, I saw on Pinterest lots of references to “Gone Girl” if you enjoyed “Girl on a Train”. Had to read it. I hadn’t read a psychological thriller before. This was so different to books I have read in the past.
When people say they couldn’t put this book down, they are not exaggerating! I took this book camping and I’m afraid it made me quite unsociable. When I did manage to pry my eyes from the pages and join my friends and family at the beach or on a walk, the story stayed with me. I thought about it and I talked about it to people who had read it before.
If you haven’t read it, let me tell you a little bit about the story:
A young husband and wife, Nick and Amy, are about to celebrate their fifth wedding anniversary. That day their lives change forever. Amy suddenly disappears and all fingers point to Nick. What did he do to her?
In the following days, as the police conduct their thorough investigation, the story twists and turns.
What really happened to Amy?
How can Nick prove his innocence?
What’s real and what’s a lie?
These questions and more kept my head stuck in this book. Just when I thought I might have actually figured it out, there was a shock twist in the story. It will keep you guessing to the end.
Can’t wait to see the movie. Need to get my hands on it!
