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?
What. In. The. World.This book!!!!! I’ve read so many comments about how messed up it is and how the ending is ridiculous. I’ve had a million theories as I’ve read. I’ve thought about it constantly. It’s shocked me left and right. It’s made me never want to get married. Ever. There were parts where I guessed what was happening, other bits that blew me out of the water.The writing was fantastic. I felt everything these characters felt. Kudos to the author. The only complaint is the way it ended because now I’m just trying to figure out what happens next. I’m giving it five stars because I feel like I can’t go any lower. When a book messes with your head this much it deserves the top rating. Good gracious. Yeah, never getting married.These are my personal observations and thoughts regarding this book. Any and all books blogged about here are paid for with my personal money unless otherwise specified within the review. If you have questions please feel free to contact me.
