It's rare when I'm late these days getting some reading done. Rarer still that I was up until 1:30AM reading because I cannot put the book down.
The positive buzz for this book has been earned. I vowed to stay up until midnight with it, but the roller coaster twists kept boosting my adrenaline. I had to know how the best work of fiction I've read this year ended.
On their fifth wedding anniversary, Amy Dunne goes missing. There are signs of a struggle. After an investigation, Amy's husband, Nick becomes the main suspect. Did he make her disappear? Gillian Flynn spins together a riveting story of meanness, lies, stupidity and flat out craziness as we never quite know what is really happening during the course of the crime. Oh yes, crimes were committed, but by whom, and when? The end is a bit contrived, but honest. We never quite know our spouses, and if we knew what they were truly capable of, would be commit to them?
Quite the page turner, seek this out.
