Gillian Flynn - Gone Girl (2nd Hand Paperback)
ISBN / GTIN-13 : 9781780228228
Perhaps the most effective deployment of the ‘unreliable narrator’ in modern publishing, Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl is a true global phenomenon.
Alternating between the present-day narrative of husband Nick Dunne and the past diary entries of his wife Amy, we learn their previously perfect marriage has come undone following a move from New York to semi-rural Missouri. Amy inexplicably disappears without trace, apparently pregnant; Nick, whose emotions seem to betray little outward signs of grief or worry, is the prime suspect. However, is all that we read the truth? Is Amy genuinely missing, and, if not, what could be her possible motive?
With razor-like precision, Gillian Flynn’s third novel allows a window into the lives and minds of two complex protagonists but still leaves the reader often guessing the reality of the situation; constantly, the plot flip-flops the reader’s suspicion and sympathy, gradually revealing more about its leads and more about the darkness that consumes them both.
Launching a vast fleet of lookalike novels, Gone Girl remains the jewel in the crown and one of the true essential novels of the decade.

"The pulsating novel that defined the thriller genre for the rest of the decade, Gone Girl is a stunning union of clockwork plotting and credible, intriguing characterisation that spawned a legion of imitators. Artfully employing misdirection, unreliable narrators and jaw-dropping twists, Flynn’s third novel is a bravura white-knuckle ride into the heart of millennial darkness." - Waterstones.
"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.
