All the book blogs that I listen to, Books on the Nightstand, Literary Disco, the Readers…
Joy the Baker mentioned it on her podcast a few months back…
My friends and my sister…
Like I said, everyone is talking about this book, and now I am.
I’m going to start by saying, that I don’t typically read thrillers. I don’t like surprises, I don’t like plot twist that I can’t predict.
I don’t like dark books or mean characters.
Having said that, I loved this book.
I couldn’t put it down, I read it in three days (Ok all you people who read books in a day, I have two kids under the age of four, and I had a huge assignment due for my Masters course… otherwise I probably would have read it faster.)
So what is this amazing book about…
It is about a couple who have fallen on many levels of hard times. Hard times in their relationship, hard times financially, and even hard times mental. Basically they are pretty unhappy people.
On the day of their five anniversary, the wife Amy, who is a bit of a ‘celebrity’ goes missing. The story is told from two points of view, hers and her husband’s, Nick.
I don’t want to say anything else about the plot for fear that I will give something away.
I do want to say that this book was a real page turner, I would recommend it to anyone who is in the mood for a good nail-biter/read.
Since reading the book, I have now recommended it to just about everyone that I talk to, and now, my friends, I am recommending it to you!
I think the sign of a good author is that after reading one of their books, you want to go on and read more of their books, Gillian Flynn must be a great author because I have just bought her first two books, and can’t wait to get into them!
