"I don't even want to ask. You two are the most fucked-up people I have ever met, and I specialize in fucked-up people." This quote pretty much sums it up.

"I don't even want to ask. You two are the most fucked-up people I have ever met, and I specialize in fucked-up people." This quote pretty much sums it up. There were parts where I really rooted for Amy- but then she went way over the top and revealed how fucked-up she really is and whoa, No. Same for Nick, though I honestly had more problems with his "Women hate me and I hate women and I'm such a poor guy because of that" attitude than with him becoming even more of a fuck-up than he was to begin with. The writing is really great though. I have to admit it took me a while (until the second part) to get actively interested but then I really enjoyed it. The alternating POV and the switch between personalities (I think you can describe it like that) kept me on my feet and reading. The story is also pretty great, I loved how everything got layed out and misinterpreted and then finally figured out and then turned around to mean something different in the eyes of another character and yeah, really enjoyable.

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?

“Absorbing . . . In masterly fashion, Flynn depicts the unraveling of a marriage—and of a recession-hit Midwest—by interweaving the wife’s diary entries with the husband’s first-person account.”
“Ms. Flynn writes dark suspense novels that anatomize violence without splashing barrels of blood around the pages . . . Ms. Flynn has much more up her sleeve than a simple missing-person case. As Nick and Amy alternately tell their stories, marriage has never looked so menacing, narrators so unreliable.”
—The Wall Street Journal
“The story unfolds in precise and riveting prose . . . even while you know you’re being manipulated, searching for the missing pieces is half the thrill of this wickedly absorbing tale.”
—O: The Oprah Magazine
