This book starts out well. Gripping, and a real page-turner as the reader is intrigued by this strange, complex marriage. After the disappearance, the tension notches up and continues. Until about the middle of the book. Then the many twists, repetitions of events told by both Amy and Nick, not to mention the frankly unbelievable behaviour of both characters, starts to grate. I began to feel impatient but needed to know how the law would finally get to the truth. That was the bitter disappointment. I got to the last page not believing this was the end and feeling somehow cheated. Very disappointing...Continua
Nick Dunne has a strange present for his fifth wedding anniversary: his beloved wife, Ami, is missing. People, police and media think he is a murderer. Their house is a mess but he finds out clues for a treasure hunt, as always in wedding annivesary.
Where is Amy Elliot Dunne?
Amazing Amy is a brilliant woman, smart, clever and vindictive.
The novel is a sequence of Nick's and Amy's point of view, from the very beginning of their love to present absence.
Very good book.
Gone girl by Gillian Flynn我是先看了電影才看書本的。書本內的男主角Nick Dunne 比電影中的Ben Affleck 比較無奈。書本開始用主角各自的表述，男的說的是現在式，而女的是陳述過去5年內婚姻生活關係。就是你說你的，她說她的，一開始都是甜蜜無比，到久了，各自性格開始表露無遺，Amy(女主角）有那種人格扭曲的傾向，恐怖的是她會花心思且有耐性一步一步設計陷害丈夫，制做他殺妻的罪證。但是老公也不是什麼好東西，他也犯了普遍男人也愛的掂花惹草，不再體貼，酗酒等等。故事往後，男的逐步發現老婆的計謀卻苦無證據，在快要被警方逮捕前，老婆戲劇性的出現在家門前。期間，Amy 是躲藏在哪？她回來的動機是什麼？書中Amy完全抓著Nick的性格弱點，別人看到的是千金小姐委屈下嫁窮小子，她知道當一個人經歷過如此豐富加瘋狂的關係，往後的其他人（如果有的話）都是如白開水一樣。你寧願睡在蛇蠍旁，享受被咬帶來的快感？還是，伴著一潭死水，一起臭到老死？這是一本自己難得看得很仔細的書，一般人的關係就如男女主角，從甜蜜到平淡到各相怨懟，箇中有多少人能從中學到互相包容或相互接受？還是當中你我都有銳變，變成對方心目中的理想情人？...Continua
The book starts with a lovely buildup but ends with a 'you gotta be kidding me' resolution, which still made sense to me though. I loved the psychological twists and turns and the bunch of mind games they play with each other. I thoroughly enjoyed the book....Continua
bellissimo, non riuscivo a smettere di leggerlo, illuminante!
riesce a dare l'idea di come si possa arrivare a situazioni limite senza neppure rendersene conto, non riesci a smettere di leggerlo, fino al finale...sconvolgente!
