I am going to come right out and say that this will be a hard book review to do without giving away any spoilers. I am going to try my hardest. This book was intense and amazing. Definitely one of the best books I have ever read. Every time I thought I knew what was happening, I was wrong. The first part of the book led me in one direction. The second part, a total 180. It left my head spinning, and I couldn't stop
On the day of their fifth anniversary, Amy mysteriously disappears, leaving husband Nick with a lot of unanswered questions. We hear the story from their individual points of view, Amy's starting on the day they met, and Nick's starting on the day Amy disappeared. Nick isn't acting like the concerned husband he should be. What is he hiding? Who took Amy? Was Nick involved? Why is Nick smiling for the tv cameras? Then I realized that they were both unreliable narrators. They both seemed to have personality disorders and secrets they were hiding. I was so taken in, I had to keep reading to see how it all ended. It didn't disappoint.
Overall, I would give this book five out of five stars. I loved the whole story, beginning to end. When it was over, I missed Nick and Amy. I felt like I lost some interesting, albeit psychotic friends.
I also just finished The Carrie Diaries, and will be doing a review soon. Next up, Mommywood, by Tori Spelling. I read her first book, Stori Telling a while back, and I loved it. I was never a Tori Spellling fan until her first book. Also, after the intensity of Gone Girl, I needed something a little fluffier. So far, this is doing the trick.
Have you read Gone Girl? I would love to hear your thoughts. What are you currently reading?
