A psychological thriller that will keep you guessing until the very last page.

This book was a whirlwind of suspense! Amy Elliott Dunne, formerly a well-to-do New Yorker living on royalties from children's books written by her parents, goes missing from the home she shares with her husband, Nick, on the morning of their fifth wedding anniversary. What begins as a total mystery starts unfolding into what seems to be a bloody murder-- and the evidence is stacked against Nick.

Told from the points of view of both Amy and Nick, Gone Girl takes readers through a series of events that twist and tangle throughout the book. One minute, I thought I had the whole story figured out, and then I would be shocked by some new piece of evidence or revelation. I was kept guessing until the very end, and I was still surprised. If you're looking for a mystery thriller in which nothing is as it seems, this book is one of the best.
