This book lulled me into its dark depths.
Gillian Flynn weaves the story of Amy’s disappearance through Nick’s narrative and Amy’s past diary entries. This initially provides the reader with the benefit of multiple perspectives.
Later in the book, it will leave the reader questioning everything that came before.
At first, the main characters, Nick and Amy, appear to be an average couple. As the book progresses, Flynn adds many layers to them and they become real people that you can picture in your life. You can overlook some of their faults because you connect emotionally with them.
