Book Review: Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn

Wow. It took me a while to get on the bandwagon and check this book out from the library, but I'm so glad I did. It was very suspenseful, dark, and full of twists. It only took me a day to read, and I stayed up way later than I should have doing so. I just had to know what happened though! 

Nick and Amy Dunne have just relocated from New York City to North Carthage, Missouri to take care of Nick's ailing mother. On the morning of their fifth wedding anniversary, the meticulous Amy disappears. Nick is immediately considered a suspect in the small town and is suddenly pitted against the entire population, with the exception of his sister and one very trusting police officer. Fluctuating between Nick's point of view during the investigation and five years of Amy's diary entries, Flynn weaves an elaborate thriller that exposes one seemingly ordinary couple's marital intricacies. I was shocked at the end and wondered "Well now what?" I don't want to give anything away, so I'll stop my little summary there. 

If you've read it, what did you think?
