That’s pretty much what I thought at the middle and end of this book, with a few other ‘special’ words thrown in too.
Let’s start from the beginning.
Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn, who I now plan to read all of the books by her, is the story of missing Amy Elliot Dunne and her husband Nick. Nick begins to act elusive, aloof, and not very helpful during the early days of Amy being gone. Much like the world today, everyone suspects Nick of killing his wife. But did he really do it?
My sister-in-law told me that I had to read this book. She’s pretty on point about books I like, so I went ahead and bought it. I’ll admit, the beginning of the book was a little slow, but then BAM. You learn secrets and delve deeper into the life of Nick and Amy. Then when you think everything is making sense….BAM again. You can’t believe what you’re reading. My mind was completely blown by this book. If this is how her other books are then I’m hooked.
This book is dark and twisted. I’ll admit I don’t see it being everyone’s cup of tea, but I think people should give it a chance. This will be a book I will recommend to anyone who asks. I have Dark Places by the same author and it will be one of the next books I read.
I might have to take a sabbatical from reading….haha who am I kidding, I can’t do that.
