Gone Girl...

I'm a self confessed book worm, I love nothing better than getting lost in a make believe world. If you saw my post from a little while back, you'll know that I'm usually a rom-com kinda girl so Gillian Flynn's crime thriller 'Gone Girl' is a bit off the wall for me. I decided to give it a go as I'd heard a lot of good things about it and after seeing about a million people on the train with their noses buried in it, I thought it must be worth my time. 

Nick and Amy appear to be a happily married couple but when Amy vanishes on their fifth wedding anniversary suspicion falls onto Nick. The story is told via alternating chapters narrated by Nick and Amy, as the reader you hear the events of their marriage from both perspectives. For the first half of the book, you don't know if Nick is responsible for Amy's disappearance and from the past diary entries that make up her chapters you question the 'happy couple' they appear to be. 

It's a gripping thriller that will have you wanting to turn the pages faster than you can manage; the only slight disappointment was the ending, as for me it didn't come to the concise close I wanted it to.
