Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
(Crown, 2012, 432 pages)
As the third person in our library to read this book I switched things up a little bit by listening to the audiobook. It got good reviews and it definitely kept my interest. I enjoyed the book and it kept me on edge wanting to figure out what would happen and what the real story was. I’ll give a quick recap but you can also check out the previous reviews of the book from Theresa and Sadie.
Amy and Nick moved to Missouri from New York after both lost their jobs and Nick decided it would be best to be close to his sick mother. Then, on their fifth wedding anniversary, Amy goes missing. All signs point to Nick as the story alternates between his perspective and Amy’s diary entries. He comes across as distant and unlikeable (almost like a sociopath), but is he responsible for Amy’s disappearance? Is there something else going on?
Like I said, I was engaged listening to this book and thought the narrators did a great job bringing each character to life.
