Gone Girl


Gone Girl


Rating : 5 stars
Read: September 16 to 20, 2013
Format Read : Paperback



I'm still a loss with words to describe what I felt reading this book!
Full of twists and turns, the power to crush every single notion you could have about the characters...crush and constantly rebuild the view you have of them. Is he/she capable of that? Who is lying and who is telling the truth!

In the day of their 5th wedding anniversary, Nick's wife , Amy, disappeared. Without a trace.
Nick's reactions and behaviors are odd to say the least...he is lying, he was unhappy...but was he somehow responsible for her disappearing?

What happened to Amy? 
******

The story is told in a different sort of dual POV. We have Nick's dealing with his wife missing...

There's something disturbing about recalling a warm memory and feeling utterly cold. 

...and then we have Amy's diary entries, recalling how they met and many key moments of their relationship/marriage.

His eyelashes are trimmed with powder, and before he leans in, he brushes the sugar from my lips so he can taste me. 

And many times things may seem off, how one account doesn't match the perception you had of said character.
Oh I confess, my opinion of Nick was constantly changing...he could be an asshole, a douchebag and then have redeeming qualities. I kind of liked him but wanted to punch him in the face!
And Amy? Solely by her diary entries,I thought she wasn't as perfect as she wanted to show! The constant need to be the cool wife, the one that was doing everything to save her marriage.

Now, I can't say much more because I would spoil it...I mean, one of the amazing things about this story are the twists, the way you're left with your mouth wide open and feeling like you were punched in the gut.
I'll say this, part 2 of the story, WILL BLOW YOUR MIND!!

I couldn't believe it!!!
I'll just say that from that point on, your opinion of one of the characters will change drastically!
We will meet the cold and genius mind of a sociopath...the unscrupulous planning , the manipulation and above all how appearances can be misleading.
Amy is a SICK SICK person! A psycho bitch, that thinks she is better than everyone else...that everyone should put her in a freaking pedestal and adore her!
Most definitely one of the most disturbing characters ever!

Now, is this book a turn pager?
It sure is!

The characters are complex and you'll be trying to put the pieces of this puzzle together. And failing BIG TIME!!

The story is dark, it's disturbing and it's just awesome! I loved it and now in need of therapy,aha.

And how about the ending?
I can get why many HATED the ending! At this point, I didn't even know what I think of it! I don't LOVE it and I don't HATE it! I'm still in a state of disbelief (I read that final chapter like 5 times)!
It's just torture how the author ended the story!! 
In the last chapters of the book she trowed a bomb of epic proportions and we are left to fill out the spaces!
But those last lines gave me the chills you guys,the chills!
