If you havent already read Gillian Flynn's Gone Girl, pick it up today, you will not be disappointed!!!!


Marriage can be a real killer.
   One of the most critically acclaimed suspense writers of our time, New York Times bestseller Gillian Flynn takes that statement to its darkest place in this unputdownable masterpiece about a marriage gone terribly, terribly wrong. The Chicago Tribune proclaimed that her work “draws you in and keeps you reading with the force of a pure but nasty addiction.” Gone Girl’s toxic mix of sharp-edged wit and deliciously chilling prose creates a nerve-fraying thriller that confounds you at every turn.
   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 from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick 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?
   As the cops close in, every couple in town is soon wondering how well they know the one that they love. With his twin sister, Margo, at his side, Nick stands by his innocence. Trouble is, if Nick didn’t do it, where is that beautiful wife? And what was in that silvery gift box hidden in the back of her bedroom closet?
   With her razor-sharp writing and trademark psychological insight, Gillian Flynn delivers a fast-paced, devilishly dark, and ingeniously plotted thriller that confirms her status as one of the hottest writers around.

My Review:

This is a Must read for the summer!!!!!

WOW!!!  If you haven’t read this book I highly recommend you add it to your summer reading! Gillian Flynn is a Brilliant writer and this thriller is brilliant, will keep you up late reading to the end. You won’t be able to put it done as you will want to know what happens next. There are twist and turns that will have you shocked and mesmerized .Love, hate, affairs, malice, anger, and murder are what you will find in this story. They are what will keep you reading until your eyes are so tired. That was how it was for me but I wanted, I needed to know what was going to take place.

This story grabbed me from the beginning and pulled me right into it. It was the morning of their anniversary and Nick receives a call from his neighbor that his door is open and the cat is outside. So Nick comes home to put the cat back in the house, but what he finds is his house in disarray as if there had been a struggle and his wife of five years gone. But was this a murder or was it a sick plot of revenge. Amy has left clues for Nick as a treasure hunt for their anniversary of all the places they have been together. The clues will lead him to his anniversary surprise. Did Nick kill his wife, that is what it looks like and all the evidence is pointed right at him?

Has someone kidnapped her or was it all a game of some sick twisted mind? And what made her leave clues as to where she is if she was? Pick up the book and find out for yourself.

A Fantastic book. Gillian Flynn gets in to your head as you learn more of Amy and Nick. This Psychological Thriller is the Best I have read this summer!
