When a woman goes missing on her fifth wedding anniversary, her diary reveals hidden turmoil in her marriage, while her husband, desperate to clear himself of suspicion, realizes that something more disturbing than murder may have occurred.
Sehr spannend und toll konstuiert. Nicht mein Lieblingsbuch von Gillian Flynn, aber trotzdem super. "Sharp Objects" fand ich noch einen Tick besser...

"I don't even want to ask. You two are the most fucked-up people I have ever met, and I specialize in fucked-up people."
This quote pretty much sums it up. There were parts where I really rooted for Amy- but then she went way over the top and revealed how fucked-up she really is and whoa, No. Same for Nick, though I honestly had more problems with his "Women hate me and I hate women and I'm such a poor guy because of that" attitude than with him becoming even more of a fuck-up than he was to begin with.
The writing is really great though. I have to admit it took me a while (until the second part) to get actively interested but then I really enjoyed it. The alternating POV and the switch between personalities (I think you can describe it like that) kept me on my feet and reading.
The story is also pretty great, I loved how everything got layed out and misinterpreted and then finally figured out and then turned around to mean something different in the eyes of another character and yeah, really enjoyable.
