Who are you?
What have we done to each other?

These are the questions Nick Dunne finds himself asking on the morning of his fifth wedding anniversary, when his wife Amy suddenly disappears. The police suspect Nick. Amy’s friends reveal that she was afraid of him, that she kept secrets from him. He swears it isn’t true. A police examination of his computer shows strange searches. He says they weren’t made by him. And then there are the persistent calls on his mobile phone.

So what did happen to Nick’s beautiful wife?


This is my first Gillian Flynn novel and it definitely did not disappoint. The novel had three parts. Its amazing that all three parts are different but they all explain every aspect of the story. The author really put in a lot of effort to make this novel. It was very evident because the details were all in sync with one another. The flow of the story was so perfect that it was planned very very well.

I had fun reading this book. It was a roller coaster ride full of emotions. The novel was really worth reading and sharing to other people. I definitely will not forget Amy and Nick’s crazy, fucked up love story. It is scary because it may really happen. I gave it a 5 hearts rating because it is a book I would love to share and talk about. This book is recommended to readers who would want something romantic yet realistic.
