Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn: New York Times Bestseller, The “mercilessly entertaining” (Vanity Fair) instant classic, about the nature of identity and the terrible secrets which can survive and thrive in even the most intimate relationships (Lev Grossman, Time).
Gifts are being wrapped and bookings are being made when Nick’s clever and beautiful wife disappears. 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 out of Amy’s diary show the alpha-girl perfectionist might have put anyone dangerously on edge. Under mounting pressure from the police and the press — along with Amy’s fiercely doting parents–that the city 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? –New Yorker
Ms. Flynn writes dark suspense books that anatomize violence with no splashing barrels of blood round the pages, Ms. Flynn has more up her sleeve than a simple missing-person case. Since Nick and Amy reluctantly inform their stories, marriage has never looked so ominous, narrators so unreliable., The Wall Street Journal
“The narrative unfolds in precise and fascinating prose… even while you know you’re being manipulated, searching for the missing bits is half the thrill of this wickedly absorbing narrative.” –O: The Oprah Magazine
Three years ago, they made the move from their hip New York condominium to an amazing yet generic home in the little town of Carthage, Missouri. It was a family necessity. At least that’s what Nick keeps reminding Amy. The adjustment hasn’t been a simple one. But now it is time to celebrate five years of marriage.
Amy always concocts a treasure hunt for her husband, with clues hidden in special places that he must figure out from her mysterious clues. Sometimes they can be harder than others, and at times they could be damning too.
Whatever you do, don’t be duped into believing you understand what happened before the very last paragraph. You will have been batted around like a ping pong ball in a tight match, and you will feel as if you’ve made as many turnarounds. The book is, very simply, ingenious. Gillian Flynn could not possibly surprise her readers any more than she has in this wonderful thriller. If there ever was a must-read, particularly for mystery fans, GONE GIRL is that. And much more.
