Five Minute Friday: GONE GIRL by Gillian Flynn

19288043

 

On a warm summer morning in North Carthage, Missouri, it is Nick and Amy Dunne’s fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations 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 from Amy’s diary reveal the alpha-girl perfectionist could have put anyone dangerously on edge. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media—as well as Amy’s fiercely doting parents—the town 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?

A Note From Amy

I’ve read both SHARP OBJECTS and DARK PLACES and absolutely fallen in love with Gillian Lynn’s literary writing style. As a writer, I would kill to write so beautifully! Okay, maybe not kill but you get my point. I picked up this beauty from my community library’s sale shelf for just $1.00!!!! Can’t wait to get started reading this weekend!
