That was the question as I read Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. You learn very fast when Nick is relating the story that his wife Amy has disappeared. When it's Amy's voice we learn the backstory as we read her diary. It becomes very clear that their view of their marriage is very different. Something has gone terribly awry but who to believe? Amy? Whose life has been chronicled in children's books as Amazing Amy? Or Nick who is a mild mannered journalist out of a job and back home caring for parents and trying to earn a living running a bar?
I don't usually read modern day thrillers; I get spooked easily but this one gripped me. I had to keep reading to find out what happened to Amy. To find out what was real and what a figment of someone's imagination. To find out if Nick is guilty of her murder as his side of the story seems to unravel.
You must read this book!
Latane, now it's your turn.
