July 14-August 13
On a warm summer morning in North Carthage, Missouri, it is Nick and Amy Dunne’s fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservation. s are being made when Nick’s clever and beautiful wife disappears. 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 the 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?
Review : This book was fucking insane the character are fucked up people . This book is about Nick and Amy . Amy goes missing on there 5th anniversary and there place is a mess Nick goes to the cops . And he soon becomes the main suspect Amy set up all these clues for there anniversary . Part of the book was in Amy's diary's point of view and it was interesting to see her point of view when they met and there marriage .Nick calls Amy's parents down to come help they wrote children books based on Amy so fucked up . This book was so addictive I had to know what happened how it turned out . There are people from Amy's past Amy's ex boyfriend who tried to kill himself Hillary and Tommy . Nick starts to figure out that the clues relate to places he had sex with his mistress Andie and Amy is framing Nick for her murder like WTF Amy is a really fucked up woman she wants to control everything she told People Hillary that she threw her down the stairs and Tommy that he raped her shes fucking crazy Nick just needs to prove it . Amy's alive he's working with his sister and his lawyer . He does a interview to talk how he was a bad husband and he cheated he wants her to come home . Amy is hiding first at this cabin but then she got robbed and then she goes to desi and hides out there but then she kills him ad goes to Nick and it's so fucking crazy he says he's leaving her but she won't let him and now she pregnant and she got away with this I loved this book but shes's crazy I can't wait to read more gillian flyn's books .
“Men always say that as the defining compliment, don’t they? She’s a cool girl. Being the Cool Girl means I am a hot, brilliant, funny woman who adores football, poker, dirty jokes, and burping, who plays video games, drinks cheap beer, loves threesomes and anal sex, and jams hot dogs and hamburgers into her mouth like she’s hosting the world’s biggest culinary gang bang while somehow maintaining a size 2, because Cool Girls are above all hot. Hot and understanding. Cool Girls never get angry; they only smile in a chagrined, loving manner and let their men do whatever they want. Go ahead, shit on me, I don’t mind, I’m the Cool Girl.
Men actually think this girl exists. Maybe they’re fooled because so many women are willing to pretend to be this girl. For a long time Cool Girl offended me. I used to see men – friends, coworkers, strangers – giddy over these awful pretender women, and I’d want to sit these men down and calmly say: You are not dating a woman, you are dating a woman who has watched too many movies written by socially awkward men who’d like to believe that this kind of woman exists and might kiss them. I’d want to grab the poor guy by his lapels or messenger bag and say: The bitch doesn’t really love chili dogs that much – no one loves chili dogs that much! And the Cool Girls are even more pathetic: They’re not even pretending to be the woman they want to be, they’re pretending to be the woman a man wants them to be. Oh, and if you’re not a Cool Girl, I beg you not to believe that your man doesn’t want the Cool Girl. It may be a slightly different version – maybe he’s a vegetarian, so Cool Girl loves seitan and is great with dogs; or maybe he’s a hipster artist, so Cool Girl is a tattooed, bespectacled nerd who loves comics. There are variations to the window dressing, but believe me, he wants Cool Girl, who is basically the girl who likes every fucking thing he likes and doesn’t ever complain. (How do you know you’re not Cool Girl? Because he says things like: “I like strong women.” If he says that to you, he will at some point fuck someone else. Because “I like strong women” is code for “I hate strong women.”)”
There’s something disturbing about recalling a warm memory and feeling utterly cold.”
“My gosh, Nick, why are you so wonderful to me?'
He was supposed to say: You deserve it. I love you.
But he said, 'Because I feel sorry for you.'
'Because every morning you have to wake up and be you.”
