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. 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?
My views : After a long time I read something which was so intriguing and psychologically fascinating. I always find human behavior amusing to the point that there is always something that shocks you. In life , we meet so many people who bring out different reactions out of you but there are very few who make you compete and play their game 'cause there is no other option. It doesn't matter if you win or lose as long as you play by their rules. Nick and Amy are one such couple who are playing a dangerous game. They make you laugh , sympathize , entertain you with a charming life and make you feel the cracks in the life. But their game is far from being normal. It is engaging , creatively wicked and weirdly CREEPY ! Yes, that's one book whose characters spooked me a bit and I loved it. I cant wait to read other book by this author.
