Overall: 5 stars (out of 5)
So I clearly have a thing for books that have be come movies/television shows. And I'm guessing that most people have seen the trailer for this before, just in case you haven't, here's a synopsis.
On a warm summer morning in North Carthage, Missouri, it is Nick and Amy Dunne’s fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick’s clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn't doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams about the slope and shape of his wife’s head, but passages from Amy's diary reveal the alpha-girl perfectionist could have put anyone dangerously on edge.
I started reading this book because so many of my co-workers were reading it! It's taken me a little longer to get through this one than I would have liked, but it's my no means because it's not boring!
I had a love hate relationship with this book! I was totally enthralled by it from the first page. But the more I read, the more frustrated I became with the lives these people were leading. And the amount of twists in this story had me on a constant emotional roller-coaster!
So why am I giving it a 5? I think the author did a wonderful job of telling the story of one couple's struggle to discover who they married. I think she perfectly captured their weaknesses, strengths and their complete dependence on each other. And boy did she have me sitting on the edge of my seat all the way until the last page.
This is one that'll stay on the shelf for a re-read one day.
