I brought this book everywhere just so I could read what would happen next. Gillian Flynn made her two main characters, Nick Dunne and Amy Elliot Dunne, so dynamic that it was hard not to root for them both. The wonderful plot twist made me grip and read this book so hard I found myself reading till 5 AM
here’s the teaser of the book:
“On the morning of their fifth wedding anniversary, Nick’s wife, Amy, has disappeared. Nick is weak, Nick is a liar, and maybe he’s not the very best of husbands – but is he a killer? Amy’s diary reveals turmoil over their marriage, strange sicknesses, and her deep wish to be a mother – but is she telling the whole story?”
Flynn painted a good picture of the media and its hype with the “missing girl” stories. How PR and strategic interviews can change people’s opinions about the suspect (in this book)… no really, the media can change our perceptions about a person through how they create their take of the news. I wish I could my thoughts into words tight now, but seriously I’m just so speechless on how she perfectly painted that picture… I can’t transform my thoughts into writing.
I admit I was skeptical into buying this book (but thank the heavens for giving me a friend who forced me to buy a copy). I did not regret buying this book. If you’re looking for a thriller that has two kick butt characters… this is the book for you.
plus they made this book into a movie, with Flynn’s screenwriting (hinting there’s a different ending in the movie)!
