You guys, this book.
Oh my gosh, it’s so messed up.
I’d been wanting to read this book (and hearing about it everywhere) since last summer. I finally got it for Christmas and then took my time starting it. I don’t know why I did that. Because once I got started, I couldn’t stop. I did nothing last weekend but read this book, I just couldn’t put it down.
Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn starts off from the point of view of a husband on the day of his fifth wedding anniversary. But you get from the first page that he’s not happily married. The first part switches back and forth between the husband and then the wife’s journal while you learn about their relationship, their struggles, and what happened to the now-missing wife.
Except you don’t know, not really.
This book messes with your head just as much as the husband and wife mess with each other’s. It’s a pyschological thriller in its truest form and you really don’t know what to believe or think until the very end.
And then you just think no way.
I loved this book. I want to read her others (and this is a genre I normally don’t care about). I want to reread this one and notice new things. I want to live in the madness again.
Because that’s what it is, complete madness.
And I enjoyed it immensely.
Have you read this one yet? What did you think??
