This is the book-turned-film that everyone is talking about!
Meet Nick Dunne who, on the morning of his fifth wedding anniversary, discovers that his beautiful wife Amy has disappeared. AND he is the prime suspect. There are signs of a struggle in the Dunne household, and Amy’s best friend confesses to police that Amy was afraid of her husband.
Told from interchanging viewpoints, taken from Nick’s current experiences and Amy’s diary, the reader is swept along on a whirlwind ride without knowing who to trust or what to believe. And then suddenly, halfway through the novel, the plot twists. In a shocking revelation all of the dangling threads fall into place, and the story transforms into a high stakes game of cat and mouse.
This is one of those books that I simply could not put down until I had finished. It kept me on the edge of my seat, rooting for the characters and not knowing what to expect next. The movie, released 2nd October, is in the very capable hands of Ben Affleck and David Fincher (the Director of Fight Club and The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo), and I simply can’t wait to see it!
