WARNING THIS CONTAINS SPOILERS DON’T SAY I DIDN’T WARN YOU
Divided into three parts (part one boy loses girl,part two boy meets girl,part three by gets girl back or vice versa),this book tells a story about Nick Dunne and his lost wife Amy Elliott Dunne.The POV changes from Nick to Amy from the beginning till the end.The plot twist is wonderful if only I didn’t read the spoilers before I started this book.The part one is written perfectly for readers to believe that Amy is the protagonist here and forced us to REALLY HATE Nick Dunne the possibly killer cheating husband.
The second part made me truly HATE Amy Elliot Dunne.I hate the second part the most (because of Amy) but also it’s the climax of the story,it’s the mid-story twist which everybody in internet says so shocking.The third part as well still not making me love Amy.The third part is the anti climax.It tells the end of the story,how Amy and Nick’s life is after Amy’s return.From the very beginning to the end,this book sums up the story about this post-modern broken marriage life,the conflicts and all other crazy stuffs packed inside.
I love Amy at the first place.But then I want to HATE her very much
but I can’t really.An alpha girl who has a mental retardation.The creepy Psycho woman who frames her own husband to a death row and planning her own death for the sake of self discipline.Yeah I do think that Amy is crazy seriously.She is just that girl who broke her own doll and then tell the parents that her little sister did it so that she will be punished and herself being the good good girl.I do really hate this kind of person.No matter how pretty or how brilliant she is,I still hate her!I mean ,who the hell will break her own ribs to blame her own best friend?Or who the hell will frame her husband for murdering herself because he has a mistress?Well God,I know Nick is a cheater who doesn’t respect his wife but still only a psycho frames her very own husband for her very own death.And that’s not all,she killed a man who helped her during her hard time just to save herself from the consequences of her former acts!She is crazy omg.She is brilliant,careful,witty,and abnormal.A perfect criminal.
But also,I should be honest here : Amy Elliott Dunne is actually the soul of this novel.She is the main idea of the whole story.A unique character who makes the story turns out so thrilling,so awesome.Gone Girl wouldn’t be the #1 bestseller without her existence.Gillian should thank this psycho b*tch.
So my conclusion is:
“Read this book and stay single!”
why you would like this book:
1.Because the plot is book dropping shocking
2.The writing is enjoyable
3.The character is unique and interesting
why you wouldn’t like this book:
1.You simply don’t like thrillers
2.The book featuring a megalomaniac as its main interest
PS: I still think about the injustice.Desi is murdered.And no one seems to take that seriously and simply believes in the story the killer created.Why???!
