Gone Girl

Gone Girl: A Novel - Gillian Flynn

Well! Fairly early on I thought I knew what was gonna happen in this book, and then halfway through my theory got blown so far out of the water it ended up in a tree. In the middle of a desert. On Mars.

 

I don't want to go into too much detail and ruin things, but basically a guy's wife goes missing on their anniversary, and despite us reading from his perspective, we aren't entirely sure he's not involved. We read things as they happen, and now and then he lets us know that he has lied to the police, but we never know what exactly he's lied about.

 

The chapters are interspersed with his wife's diary entries, which provide a pretty damning window into their relationship and leaves us fearing the worst.

 

All in all, this was a great read. Enough intrigue to keep me interested, and I think it was well written. Took half a star off because I wasn't overly happy with the ending, but I can't really say any more without giving it away.
