Gone Girl. Boy meets girl. Girl meets boy. Boy and Girl in love. Girl vanish... did the Boy cause the Girl to vanish?
Amy and Nick; two modern couple celebrating their fifth anniversary. Amy decides to play one lovely treasure hunt with her husband: not the usual treasure hunt they play every anniversary. Not the usual treasure hunt that brings back good memories; a bottle of wine, a candle lit dinner, but a treasure hunt that may make the husband the most loathed person in the area if not the country.
Amy and Nick; two different backgrounds. She; the daughter of affluent psychologists turned authors of Amazing Amy. Amazing Amy the alter ego of their own daughter who is righteous, and goody two shoes. Yet she is filled with hate. Deceit. Master Puppeteer.
Nick; the son of a family from North Carthage. A journalist. a byproduct of recession and the downfall of newspapers.
Both: master psychopaths. Charming and dangerous. Addicts to each others and parasites on each others. A complete yin and yang. Both are dark characters from the cesspool of humanity.
The novel is good. Amazing page turner and a thriller. Yet, the characterisation and development was retarded... No development in plot that makes it the IT book of 2013/ 2014.
A modern love story of twists, lies, deceit and attention. A tale of crocodile tears, back stabs. A tale of delusive narratives.
