I could not put this book down. It’s one of those books that when you get to the end of the chapter you can’t stop reading…you have to go to the next chapter. So…let’s just say I haven’t been getting a lot of sleep lately.
I feel like I can’t say a lot about this book without giving too much of the story away, so here is a brief overview…
Nick and Amy have been married for five years. On their fifth wedding anniversary Nick comes home to find Amy missing. The book is a story of the search for Amy and how Nick discovers who she truly was. Amy sets up a treasure hunt, as she does every anniversary, and Nick follows it to see if it will help find clues to her disappearance. The book is from both of their perspectives (Nick as he goes through the search for his wife, and from Amy’s diary), but it is not your typical “crime” novel. Of course everyone thinks Nick killed Amy, but Nick is desperately trying to prove his innocence. The only problem is there are not really any other suspects. There is no body and no on knows if she is still alive or dead.
It’s twisted. That’s literally all I can say except it really makes you think and has you switching sides every other chapter. Just read it. You’ll thank me. It definitely makes me want to read other books by Gillian Flynn.
