Ok… so all said… wow right? I mean seriously that was intense and I am still reeling a bit. First off by page 111 I thought I was brilliant and that it was Nick’s father who took Amy… I mean, after all Nick’s father did escape on the day of her disappearance and he did keep saying “bitch” a lot and as we know – there was no love lost between those two.
And of course, I thought Nick was an extreme butt-head for his affair with Andie but then again as the story unfolds the great and wonderful Gillian Flynn even makes his affair seem like it is ok because his wife and life were something EXTREME.
I am so curious about what others (YOU!) thought about this book.
Did you see it coming?
Who were you rooting for?
Is Amy a victim here of her parents or extreme wackadoo or both?
Is Nick a victim or a product of his own making?
As for Andie, I don’t care if she is sweet and naive – she did enter into an affair with a married man and that makes her BAD in my eyes. Grow up, get a life, and get over your “daddy” complex.
Did the ending shock you? I guess by that time for me, my loathe of Amy was pretty extreme and that is huge for me who usually falls into camp “Why can’t we all just get along?” I actually turned the page at the very end of the book hoping there was more than just that cryptic ending… and of course there wasn’t which both upset me and I had to admit made sense… where do you really go from here?
BUT since this is my page, here is how I would have liked to see it end – Nick, pretends to destroy his book…. but it has already been sent safely to another computer, probably Go’s or the cop who was still trying to work the case. Crazy Amy has the baby (ugh, hated that the baby was a bargaining tool but really… what else would we expect of Amy?) and then once the baby is safe and Amy is in the hospital Nick takes the child and runs…. really RUN NICK RUN!!!!! Like the wind!!!! GO GO GO GO!!!!
Ok… that’s my ending….LOL 😀
Lets hear from you… I know I am forgetting to mention much so bring it on… lets chat about this book!
