Gone Girl is one of those books that was a massive bestseller and actually had a decent movie adaptation – to say I was excited to read this book would be an understatement. Gone Girl was unlike anything I have ever read before – a tightly wound thriller with tension for days and legitimately surprising twists and turns.
Gone Girl is about the relationship between Nick and Amy, whose marriage has been far from perfect for several years. On their fifth wedding anniversary, Amy goes missing. All that is left behind is a violent crime scene and a clue to the start of Nick and Amy’s traditional anniversary treasure hunt. Nick is understandably upset with the speed of the investigation and starts to search for his wife by himself (and starts the treasure hunt). As time goes by, the police discover that the crime scene is fake and nothing is quite what it seems.
