LoveReading View on Gone Girl

The book that has taken the world by storm, now a huge film starring Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike. Brilliant, scintillating, dark and manipulative, packed with twists and turns this is every bit as good as everyone says it is. On the morning of their fifth wedding anniversary Amy goes missing and Nick is immediately suspected of the crime. Each chapter alternates between Nick and Amy (Amy through her diaries) as the mystery thickens and then incredibly unravels.

Amy's friends reveal that she was afraid of him, that she kept secrets from him. He swears it isn't true. A police examination of his computer shows strange searches.

The Good Book Guide Review

On the morning of Nick and Amy’s fifth wedding anniversary, Nick sets the scene describing their move from their sophisticated New York life to a rented house on the banks of the Mississippi. We begin to get a sense of cracks beneath the surface of this marriage and immediately are gripped by the implications of Amy’s disappearance on this special day. The sharp and involving narrative unfolds with extracts from Amy’s diary, which explores the development of their relationship, alternating with Nick’s experience of the subsequent police investigation, being a suspect, life after Amy, and reflections of his past.
