Depends on how you look at it

by llca1 (WorldCat user published 2013-07-24) Excellent Permalink

I read some of the other reviews and I can see their point, but I take things more at face value and don't try to read (not a pun here) too much into them. If you are that kind of reader, not always searching for some deeper meaning but looking for entertainment and maybe something light to ponder,...

Gone Girl review

The novel was very entertaining but the whole sequence of events was a bit incredulous.  Raised interesting views about the Midwest.  The ending felt unrealistic.

Presents are being wrapped and reservations 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. Under mounting pressure from police and the media -- as well as Amy's fiercely doting parents -- the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he's definitely bitter -- but is he really a killer? As the cops close in, every couple in town is soon wondering how well they really know the one they love."@en ;
