Gone Girl

For my first read in July I read, Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn.  The story is about a married couple, Nick and Amy Dunne who live in Missouri.  On their fifth wedding anniversary, Amy goes missing and Nick becomes the prime suspect of the police investigation. 

This book was awesome!  I have always enjoyed crime thrillers, but I haven't read one quite like this before.  It goes back and forth each chapter from Nick to Amy's perspective (a writing style I love) and so we learn a little bit more about them with each chapter, which makes for wonderful character development.  You go from loving to loathing characters.  You think one thing is going to happen and it goes in a totally different direction.  Nick and Amy have an interesting relationship from the get go and as the story progresses we get to see more and more of what got them into their...situation.

I would definitely recommend reading this book.  It's engaging, dark and kind of addictive. This book has several twists and turns and you probably won't be able to guess the ending.  Read it!

    Just started the 10th Anniversary edition of American Gods by Neil Gaiman. Totally addicted and I'm just on the first chapter.
