Commander Strikeher’s #CBR4 Review #41: Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
Holy shitsnacks was this book crazy! I was hardcore addicted to this book. I haven’t been sucked into a mystery in quite a while, and it was awesome. This is definitely a book where you need to know as little about it as possible to really enjoy it. I kept screaming at acquaintances to read this book so I would have somebody to discuss it with. This book is dark and deeply disturbing.
Nick and Amy Dunne move to a small town in Missouri after both losing their writing jobs in New York. On their fifth wedding anniversary, Amy disappears. There are signs of a struggle, and the mounting evidence points to Nick. The chapters in the book alternate between Nick’s perspective starting the day of Amy’s disappearance, and Amy’s diary. I really can’t discuss any more without giving away major plot twists, but this book is crack. It’s addicting, and dark, and it makes you a little crazy.
