The setting is a smaller town in Missouri. The couple, Nick and Amy, are the picture-perfect couple about to celebrate five years of marriage. However, the morning of their anniversary, Amy goes missing and it appears to be a violent kidnapping with all signs pointing at her beloved Nick. Gillian Flynn takes us on a wild ride in Gone Girl as we discover the truth behind Amy's disappearance and her marriage to Nick.
I honestly do not know how to even discuss this book. Flynn drops unsuspecting surprises on the reader at every turn. By the end of the book, I detested both Amy and Nick. And when I turned the final page, I just felt disgust at the story. Yet, kudos to the author for pulling off this story with such talent and skill. Disgust and admiration. Who knew these two things could go together?!?
What did you think of Gone Girl? Do you recommend Flynn's other novels?
