Staff Reviews


Wow! I’ve liked Gillian Flynn’s book before, but Gone Girl is definitely her best to date!

The book is narrated by Nick, who tells of taking his wife back to his Missouri hometown when his mother becomes ill.

Then it’s narrated by Amy, and if she’s to be believed, nothing Nick says is to be believed.

And then Nick refutes Amy – and pretty soon you realize that you have two unreliable narrators telling you their ‘War of the Roses’ story.

Really taut psychological drama, bizarre sociopathy, and dark crimes make this an un-put-downable read. Fantastic!

“Told from the alternating perspectives of Amy and Nick whose marriage is falling apart in small-town Missouri, this is first a story of perfect young love in Manhattan, followed by its slow disintegration after both partners lose their jobs and move to Nick's hometown to help his family through his mother's terminal illness. When Amy disappears, who is innocent and who is guilty? Slowly, each spouse's lies and deceptions are laid bare until the real foundation of their relationship is revealed. A tale reminiscent of Scott Turow, with a veneer of crazy all its own!”
