Review of Gone Girl By Gillian Flynn

Wow, is all I can say about this book.

This chilling story follows Nick and Amy a young married couple whose lives have been turned upside down by the loss of their jobs.  Moving back from New York to Nick's hometown of North Carthage, Missouri their lives take on a new route as Nick opens up a bar with his twin sister.  Leaving Amy home alone for most of the time.

When Amy disappears and the house is left in chaos the finger is soon pointed at Nick as the murderer.  However the twists and turns in this book leave you guessing right to the very tense end as to what exactly the ending will be.

This book was more involved with the dark characters of the book rather than the actual crime and page after page you go from hating Nick, yet feeling for him, to hating Amy and discovering the bitter and twisted person she really is.

I've read many thrillers and in the majority of cases you can kind of second guess what is going to happen next but not with this one.  I would never have guessed the ending in a million years which makes a refreshing change. 

This book was brilliant and as soon as I finished I had to immediately download more work from this author.  I would definitely recommend this book.
