Gone Girl by: Gillian Flynn/ Book Review




On a warm summer morning in North Carthage, Missouri, it is Nick and Amy Dunne’s fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick’s clever and beautiful wife disappears. Husband-of-the-Year isn’t doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams about the slope and shape of his wife’s head, but passages from Amy’s diary reveal the alpha-girl perfectionist could have put anyone dangerously on edge. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media-as well as Amy’s fiercely doting parents the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he’s definitely bitter-but is he really a killer?


Nick’s wife Amy goes missing on their anniversary. Automatically the police suspect Nick the husband of killing her. Then a lot of odd things start happening clues, and puzzles placed everywhere, items being found, and also Amy’s diary where she writes in every night and makes suspicion grow higher on Nick. Did Nick really kill his wife? What reason would he have? Will clues unravelĀ other things?


I have mixed feelings about this book. I did not enjoy the first half of the book I felt it was dragging on and on, but once I got to the second half of the book things started to heat up and the plot thickened. Which then I started to enjoy it.

Potentially Offensive Content:

There is a lot of F—-Bombs all over this book. It didn’t bother me, but might bother other readers and make them feel uncomfortable if they don’t enjoy reading books with alot of swearing-in it.

My Final Thoughts:

Ok So! at first starting reading this book I couldn’t get into it and did not enjoy reading it at all. After putting the book down three times to read other books, I ended up finally picking it back up just out of curiosity of how it will end. Once I reached the second half of the book which if part two that’s when things started picking up with a crazy plot twist that I never saw coming, that’s when I finally got hooked but still left it was a waste of my time reading because I prefer to get hooked on a book after the first few chapters not towards the end of the book. But I have to say good job to Flynn on that plot twist what a way to make my mind spin and say WHAT!!!! I’m giving this book a three star.
