Mehr über den Autor

Gillian Flynn wuchs in Kansas City, Missouri, auf. Nach College und Universitäts-Studium in Kansas und Chicago zog es sie nach Kalifornien, anschließend nach New York. Sie war zehn Jahre lang die leitende TV-Kritikerin von >Entertainment Weekly<. Im Jahre 2006 erschien ihr erster Roman >Cry Baby<, mit dem sie großes Aufsehen erregte. Das Buch erhielt gleich zwei >British Dagger Awards<. Ihr zweiter Roman >Finstere Orte< erschien 2009 und wurde ebenfalls ein riesiger Erfolg. Im Juli 2012 erschien ihr dritter Roman >Gone Girl< und löste ein riesiges Medienspektakel aus. Das Buch stand monatelang auf Platz 1 der New York Times-Bestsellerliste und wurde mehr als 3 Millionen mal verkauft. Alle drei Bücher werden verfilmt und demnächst im Kino zu sehen sein. Die Autorin lebt mit ihrer Familie in Chicago.



“Ice-pick-sharp… Spectacularly sneaky… Impressively cagey… Gone Girl is Ms. Flynn’s dazzling breakthrough. It is wily, mercurial, subtly layered and populated by characters so well imagined that they’re hard to part with — even if, as in Amy’s case, they are already departed. And if you have any doubts about whether Ms. Flynn measures up to Patricia Highsmith’s level of discreet malice, go back and look at the small details. Whatever you raced past on a first reading will look completely different the second time around.”
—Janet Maslin, New York Times

“An ingenious and viperish thriller… It’s going to make Gillian Flynn a star… The first half of Gone Girl is a nimble, caustic riff on our Nancy Grace culture and the way in which ''The butler did it'' has morphed into ''The husband did it.'' The second half is the real stunner, though. Now I really am going to shut up before I spoil what instantly shifts into a great, breathless read. Even as Gone Girl grows truly twisted and wild, it says smart things about how tenuous power relations are between men and women, and how often couples are at the mercy of forces beyond their control. As if that weren’t enough, Flynn has created a genuinely creepy villain you don't see coming. People love to talk about the banality of evil. You’re about to meet a maniac you could fall in love with.”
Jeff Giles, Entertainment Weekly

“An irresistible summer thriller with a twisting plot worthy of Alfred Hitchcock. Burrowing deep into the murkiest corners of the human psyche, this delectable summer read will give you the creeps and keep you on edge until the last page.”
—People (four stars)

“[A] thoroughbred thriller about the nature of identity and the terrible secrets that can survive and thrive in even the most intimate relationships. Gone Girl begins as a whodunit, but by the end it will have you wondering whether there’s any such thing as a who at all.”
Lev Grossman, Time

“How did things get so bad? That’s the reason to read this book. Gillian Flynn — whose award-winning Dark Places and Sharp Objects also shone a dark light on weird and creepy, not to mention uber dysfunctional characters — delves this time into what happens when two people marry and one spouse has no idea who their beloved really is.”
USA Today, Carol Memmott

“It’s simply fantastic: terrifying, darkly funny and at times moving. The minute I finished it I wanted to start it all over again. Admirers of Gillian Flynn’s previous books, Sharp Objects and Dark Places, will be ecstatic over Gone Girl, her most intricately twisted and deliciously sinister story, dangerous for any reader who prefers to savor a novel as opposed to consuming it whole in one sitting….”
Associated Press, Michelle Weiner

“Gillian Flynn’s third novel is both breakneck-paced thriller and masterful dissection of marital breakdown… Wickedly plotted and surprisingly thoughtful, this is a terrifically good read.”
Boston Globe

“That adage of no one knows what goes on behind closed doors moves the plot of Gone Girl, Gillian Flynn's suspenseful psychological thriller… Flynn's unpredictable plot of Gone Girl careens down an emotional highway where this couple dissects their marriage with sharp acumen… Flynn has shown her skills at gripping tales and enhanced character studies since her debut Sharp Objects, which garnered an Edgar nod, among other nominations. Her second novel Dark Places made numerous best of lists. Gone Girl reaffirms her talent.” 
South Florida Sun-Sentinel, Oline Cogdill

“A great crime novel, however, is an unstable thing, entertainment and literature suspended in some undetermined solution. Take Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl, the third novel by one of a trio of contemporary women writers (the others are Kate Atkinson and Tana French) who are kicking the genre into a higher gear… You couldn’t say that this is a crime novel that’s ultimately about a marriage, which would make it a literary novel in disguise. The crime and the marriage are inseparable. As Gone Girl works itself up into an aria of ingenious, pitch-black comedy (or comedic horror — it’s a bit of both), its very outlandishness teases out a truth about all magnificent partnerships: Sometimes it’s your enemy who brings out the best in you, and in such cases, you want to keep him close.”
“Ms. Flynn writes dark suspense novels that anatomize violence without splashing barrels of blood around the pages… But as in her other books, Ms. Flynn has much more up her sleeve than a simple missing-person case. As Nick and Amy's alternately tell their stories, marriage has never looked so menacing, narrators so unreliable.” 
Wall Street Journal

“A portrait of a marriage so hilariously terrifying, it will make you have a good hard think about who the person on the other side of the bed really is. This novel is so bogglingly twisty, we can only give you the initial premise: on their fifth anniversary, Nick Dunne’s beloved wife Amy disappears, and all signs point to very foul play indeed. Nick has to clear his name before the police finger him for Amy’s murder.”

“Readers who prefer more virulent strains of unreality will appreciate the sneaky mind games of Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl, a thriller rooted in the portrait of a tricky and troubled marriage.”
New York Times

“[Flynn has] quite outdone herself with a tale of marital strife so deliciously devious that it moves the finish line on The War of the Roses… A novel studded with disclosures and guided by purposeful misdirection… Flynn delivers a wickedly clever cultural commentary as well as a complex and driven mystery… What fun this novel is.”
New York Daily News
“Flynn’s brilliantly constructed and consistently absorbing third novel begins on the Dunnes’ fifth wedding anniversary… The novel, which twists itself into new shapes, works as a page-turning thriller, but it’s also a study of marriage at its most destructive.”
Columbus Dispatch
“Gillian Flynn's barbed and brilliant Gone Girl has two deceitful, disturbing, irresistible narrators and a plot that twists so many times you'll be dizzy. This "catastrophically romantic" story about Nick and Amy is a "fairy tale reverse transformation" that reminded me of Patricia Highsmith in its psychological suspense and Kate Atkinson in its insanely clever plotting.”
Minneapolis Star-Tribune
“For a creepy, suspenseful mystery, Ms. Pearl suggested Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn, a novel due out this week. "You will not be able to figure out the end at all. I could not sleep the night after I read it. It's really good," Ms. [Nancy] Pearl said. "It's about the way we deceive ourselves and deceive others."”
Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

“Gillian Flynn's new novel, Gone Girl, is that rare thing: a book that thrills and delights while holding up a mirror to how we live… Through her two ultimately unreliable narrators, Flynn masterfully weaves the slow trickle of critical details with 90-degree plot turns… Timely, poignant and emotionally rich, Gone Girl will peel away your comfort levels even as you root for its protagonists—despite your best intuition.”
San Francisco Chronicle
“Flynn’s third noir thriller recently launched to even more acclaim than the first two novels, polishing her reputation for pushing crime fiction to a new literary level and as a craftsman of deliciously twisting and twisted plots.”
Kansas City Star
“I picked up Gone Girl because the novel is set along the Mississippi River in Missouri and the plot sounded intriguing. I put it down two days later, bleary-eyed and oh-so-satisfied after reading a story that left me surprised, disgusted, and riveted by its twists and turns… A good story presents a reader with a problem that has to be resolved and a few surprises along the way. A great story gives a reader a problem and leads you along a path, then dumps you off a cliff and into a jungle of plot twists, character revelations and back stories that you could not have imagined. Gone Girl does just that.”
St. Louis Post-Dispatch

“To call Gillian Flynn's new novel almost review-proof isn't a put-down, it's a fact. That's because to give away the turn-of-the-screw in this chilling portrait of a marriage gone wrong would be a crime. I can say that Gone Girl is an ingenious whodunit for both the Facebook generation and old-school mystery buffs. Whoever you are, it will linger, like fingerprints on a gun… Flynn's characters bloom and grow, like beautiful, poisonous plants. She is a Gothic storyteller for the Internet age.”
Cleveland Plain Dealer

“The setup of Gone Girl lulls readers with what appears to be a done-too-often plot, but, oh, how misleading that is. This thriller is told in alternating voices, a risky form of narrative that works masterfully here because the characters are so distinct and convincing…. The first half of the story leads readers on a merry chase and gives the term "red herring" new meaning. The second half takes readers on a calculated descent into madness. The ending…is one of the most chilling we've seen in recent years.”
The Sacramento Bee, Allen Pierleoni

“If you do have room in your summer reading for new mysteries, pack Gillian Flynn's Gone Girl. It's my pick for one of the summer's best.”
Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel

“In this fast-paced thriller, Flynn tracks the disintegration of a marriage and asks: How does a couple go from uttering passionate vows to living separate lives?”
All You

“Gillian Flynn’s terrific psychological thriller, Gone Girl, wanders into an alternate criminality, to the darkest corners of mind and matrimony, using Occam’s razor to slit its own throat… Aside from the plot’s high entertainment value, Flynn has buttressed her book with humor and great writing.”
The Daily Beast

Gone Girl is a dark, satisfying, psychological thriller… Gone Girl is at times brilliant, compelling, surprising, diabolical, and it’s definitely dark and twisted… It ranks as one of the best books I’ve read in the past year…I’d highly recommend it if you’re a fan of psychological thrillers or just plain great fiction.”

“Pick up the sharp, mercilessly entertaining psychological thriller Gone Girl, written by Gillian Flynn as though with a razor, giggling all the while.”
Vanity Fair

Gone Girl [is] a thriller with an insane twist and an insidiously realistic take on marriage.”
New York magazine
“A twisting, turning, zooming-up-the-charts thriller.”
Real Simple, announcing their book club pick
“An unnerving, gorgeously written marital thriller that features one of the most compelling narrators in recent memory… Anyway, go read Gone Girl. It's quite good.”
The Atlantic Wire
“Buy Gone Girl and don't settle down for a long winter's nap or any kind of nap. I read it in two days, nonstop, useless for anything but my own incredible pleasure.”
Liz Smith, New York Social Diary
“Gillian Flynn’s killer thriller is unputdownable, and just when you think you know where she’s going, she’s gone.”
“A satisfyingly scathing take on a marriage so broken even the truth is built on lies.”
Family Circle
“If, instead, you're a fan of gripping, well-crafted tales about complex relationships, try Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn.”
“After a chilling, bombshell twist, you won’t know which clues to trust nor whom to believe.”
Woman’s Day
Flynn’s ability to reach further and further into the deep, dark recesses of the human psyche brings a much greater edge and feeling of suspense to this novel. Gone Girl is a fast-paced, always surprising page-turner of a book…Gone Girl is a superbly crafted novel by a talented and daring young writer and it will keep you guessing until the very last sentence.”
Cincinnati City Beat, John Kelly
“A highly original thriller that’s also a razor-sharp depiction of a relationship gone off the rails.”
“Masterfully plotted.”
“Dark yet funny with a devious twist, this is everything that made Flynn’s Sharp Objects a bestseller—but better.”
“The story unfolds in precise and riveting prose…even while you know you're being manipulated, searching for the missing pieces is half the thrill of this wickedly absorbing tale.”

“Full of midnight-black wit and gorgeous writing…About halfway through the book, something happens…That’s the moment you should check the clock and firmly put the book down if you have to rise early the next day. Because trust me, if you keep reading, you won’t stop till you finish it.”
Dallas Morning News, Joy Tipping

“Gillian Flynn's third mystery is burned-coffee black and flavored with cyanide. (As far as I'm concerned, those are compliments of the highest order.)…Flynn is a master manipulator, deftly fielding multiple unreliable narrators, sardonic humor, and social satire in a story of a marriage gone wrong that makes black comedies like “The War of the Roses” and “Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf” look like scenes from a honeymoon. Veteran mystery readers may see as far as the opening of the second act, but Flynn has more surprises in store on her way to the sucker-punch of an ending. It is, in a word, amazing.”
Christian Science Monitor, Yvonne Zipp

“A perfect wife’s disappearance plunges her husband into a nightmare as it rips open ugly secrets about his marriage and, just maybe, his culpability in her death… One of those rare thrillers whose revelations actually intensify its suspense instead of dissipating it. The final pages are chilling.”
Kirkus (starred review)

“[W]hat looks like a straightforward case of a husband killing his wife to free himself from a bad marriage morphs into something entirely different in Flynn’s hands. As evidenced by her previous work (Sharp Objects, 2006, and Dark Places, 2009), she possesses a disturbing worldview, one considerably amped up by her twisted sense of humor. Both a compelling thriller and a searing portrait of marriage, this could well be Flynn’s breakout novel. It contains so many twists and turns that the outcome is impossible to predict.”
Booklist (starred review)

"Flynn cements her place among that elite group of mystery/thriller writers who unfailingly deliver the goods...Once again Flynn has written an intelligent, gripping tour de force, mixing a riveting plot and psychological intrigue with a compelling prose style that unobtrusively yet forcefully carries the reader from page to page." 
Library Journal (starred review)

"Flynn masterfully lets this tale of a marriage gone toxically wrong gradually emerge through alternating accounts by Nick and Amy, both unreliable narrators in their own ways. The reader comes to discover their layers of deceit through a process similar to that at work in the imploding relationship. Compulsively readable, creepily unforgettable, this is a must read for any fan of bad girls and good writing."
Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Gone Girl is one of the best ­and most frightening ­portraits of psychopathy I've ever read. Nick and Amy manipulate each other ­with savage, merciless and often darkly witty dexterity. This is a wonderful and terrifying book about how the happy surface normality and the underlying darkness can become too closely interwoven to separate.” 
Tana French, New York Times bestselling author of Faithful Place and Into the Woods
“The plot has it all. I have no doubt that in a year’s time I’m going to be saying that this is my favorite novel of 2012. Brilliant.” 
Kate Atkinson, New York Times bestselling author of Started Early, Took My Dog and Case Histories
Gone Girl builds on the extraordinary achievements of Gillian Flynn's first two books and delivers the reader into the claustrophobic world of a failing marriage. We all know the story, right? Beautiful wife disappears; husband doesn't seem as distraught as he should be under the circumstances. But Flynn takes this sturdy trope of the 24-hour news cycle and turns it inside out, providing a devastating portrait of a marriage and a timely, cautionary tale about an age in which everyone's dreams seem to be imploding.” 
Laura Lippman, New York Times bestselling author of The Most Dangerous Thing and I’d Know You Anywhere
“Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl is like Scenes from a Marriage remade by Alfred Hitchcock, an elaborate trap that’s always surprising and full of characters who are entirely recognizable. It’s a love story wrapped in a mystery that asks the eternal question of all good relationships gone bad: How did we get from there to here?” 
Adam Ross, New York Times bestselling author of Mr. Peanut

“Just this minute I finished a week of feeling betrayed, misled, manipulated, provoked, and misjudged, not to mention having all my expectations confounded.  Considering how compulsively I kept coming back for more, I am seriously thinking of going back to page one and doing it all again.” 
Arthur Phillips, author of The Tragedy of Arthur
“I cannot say this urgently enough: you have to read Gone Girl. It’s as if Gillian Flynn has mixed us a martini using battery acid instead of vermouth and somehow managed to make it taste really, really good. Gone Girl is delicious and intoxicating and delightfully poisonous. It’s smart (brilliant, actually). It’s funny (in the darkest possible way). The writing is jarringly good, and the story is, well...amazing.  Read the book and you'll discover—among many other treasures—just how much freight (and fright) that last adjective can bear.” 
Scott Smith, New York Times bestselling author of The Ruins and A Simple Plan
“Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl reminds me of Patricia Highsmith at the top of her game. With Gone Girl, she’s placed herself at the top of the short list of authors who have mastered the art of crafting a tense story with terrifyingly believable characters.” 
Karin Slaughter, New York Times bestselling author of Fallen

"Gone Girl manages to be so many stellar things all at once—suspenseful, inventive, chilling, funny, unsettling—as well as beautifully plotted and fiercely well-written. Gillian Flynn is a thrilling writer.”
Kate Christensen, author of The Great Man  

“Reminds suspense readers of the old Alfred Hitchcock stories...This is one puzzle you do not want to miss.”
Amy Lignor, Suspense Magazine

“Absorbing thriller…In masterly fashion, Flynn depicts the unraveling of a marriage – and of a recession-hit Midwest – by interweaving the wife’s diary entries with the husband’s first person account.”
New Yorker
“A psychological thriller reminiscent of Hitchcock.”
Aspen Daily News
“Devilishly clever he said/she said thriller.”, Atlanta Journal Constitution
“Flynn’s sly and rippingly suspenseful novel, Gone Girl, is one of those novels it’s hard not to try and shanghai other people into reading, as in immediately. Flynn (Sharp Objects, Dark Places) lays down a vivid and plainspoken narrative that can read like the most jet-fueled of airport thrillers but is still bejeweled with sparkling asides and dead-on commentary. Her writing is, as needed, funny, perceptive, headslappingly honest, or sometimes an amalgam of the three. That this all happens in a book whose plot seems at first ripped from a Dateline NBC true crime is all the more impressive.”

“A riveting novel, a Midwestern noir with completely unreliable narrators.”
Knoxville Metro Plus

“Part thriller, part macabre love story…The book is told deliciously…The twists and turns are never obvious.”
New York Post

“Dark yet funny with a devious twist, this is everything that made Flynn’s Sharp Objects a bestseller—but better.”

The summer thriller is filled with enough suspense and twists to keep any beach reader happy, but it is also a book about writing. The main characters are avid readers, and they write letters, articles, journals, kid’s books and memoirs. The novel references other books, little Easter eggs nestled in the plot.”

“A fiendishly clever tale of a marriage gone toxic, and revenge exacted to a disturbingly lethal degree.”

“Flynn keeps us guessing with equal parts charm and menace. An addictive read.”
More magazine, Alice LaPlante

“After a chilling, bombshell twist, you won’t know which clues to trust nor whom to believe. Told from two perspectives, Gone Girl forces you to ask yourself, what would you do and who dunnit?”
Woman’s Day

Flynn’s ability to reach further and further into the deep, dark recesses of the human psyche brings a much greater edge and feeling of suspense to this novel. Gone Girl is a fast-paced, always surprising page-turner of a book. It’s not only a murder mystery, but a commentary on the disappearance in the last decade of nearly everything we hold near and dear, from jobs to our parents’ health and welfare to the landscape of our cities and towns…Beginning with Amy’s sudden disappearance, to the local police department’s slipshod investigation and the media’s obsessive coverage, Gone Girl is a thrilling roller coaster of a ride with enough twists and turns to give the reader whiplash…Flynn deserves credit for creating not just an exciting murder mystery, but also forcing us to look at the lies we tell ourselves.  Gone Girl is a superbly crafted novel by a talented and daring young writer and it will keep you guessing until the very last sentence.”
Cincinnati City Beat

Gone Girl is a superbly constructed, ingeniously paced and absolutely terrifying.  You begin by thinking that all marriages are a bit like this: they start with high hopes and get bogged down in nagging and money worries.  But then the psycho-drama creeps up on you with chilling power.  A five-star suspense mystery.”
A.N. Wilson, Reader’s Digest (UK)

Gone Girl is as skillfully creepy as her previous work… A chilling, stylish read about another unknowable woman.”
—Elle (UK)

“The married duo in Gillian Flynn’s superb third novel takes the idea of unreliable narrators to a whole new level. When Nick Dunne’s lovely wife Amy is violently abducted on their fifth wedding anniversary, the police and the press immediately put Nick in the frame for her murder.  Amy’s friends testify that she was afraid of her husband, and the missing woman’s diary backs up their impressions.  Nick’s computer is full of inexplicable searches, his mobile phone is plagued by mysterious calls and his own inner monologue offers a darker perspective on amazing Amy and the state of their turbulent marriage.  Flynn keeps the accelerator firmly to the floor, ratcheting up the tension with wildly unexpected plot twists, contradictory stories and the tantalizing feeling that nothing is as it seems.  Deviously good.”
Marie Claire (UK)

Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Nachdem ich schon seit vielen Monaten dieses Buch vorgeschlagen bekommen habe, habe ich nun endlich zugeschlagen. Zur Story muss ich ja nicht mehr viel erzählen, deshalb hier meine Gedanken zum Inhalt und zur Form:

Ich habe eigentlich einen Thriller erwartet und messe Bücher sehr oft daran, wie schnell man "gepackt" wird und es nicht mehr weglegen kann. Das hat bei diesem Buch wirklich lange gedauert. Das erste Viertel des Buches ist *relativ* langweilig und besteht aus Vorgeplänkel bzw. Charakterisierungen der Protagonisten. Es geht sehr viel um Beziehungen zwischen Mann und Frau im Generellen und Besonderen. Das regt zum Nachdenken und auch zum Schmunzeln an, aber ist nicht das, was man (ich?) in so einem Buch erwartet.

Dann aber geht es los: Tröpfchenweise kommen immer mehr Details über die Hauptpersonen ans Licht. Bei den ersten Details hoben sich meine Augenbrauen, aber je mehr dazu kam, umso krasser wurden die Bilder der Charaktere. An bestimmten Stellen dachte ich dann nur noch "Ach Du Scheiße!" - genau wie ich es in einem guten Thriller erwarte!

Wenn man an dieser Stelle angekommen ist, versteht man auch das Vorgeplänkel und die eingehenden Charakterdarstellungen. Dadurch gewinnt das Buch aber an unglaublicher Tiefe und wird enorm spannend.

Kleine Abzüge gibt es indes für minimale Schwächen in der Logik und manche Aktionen der Hauptdarstellerin klingen etwas übertrieben, aber nicht zuletzt lebt die Story auch davon.

Kurzum: Wer einen bitterbösen und tiefschwarzen Beziehungsthriller sucht, ist hier bestens beraten. Wer gerade selber in einer Beziehungskrise steckt, sollte die Finger davon lassen - er könnte auf falsche Gedanken kommen! ;-)

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Gone Girl" von Gillian Flynn wird mir als ein Thriller erster Güte lange in Erinnerung bleiben. Es war das erste Buch, das ich von dieser Autorin gelesen habe, aber bestimmt nicht das letzte. Es ist die Geschichte einer konventionellen Ehe, die sich äußerst ungewöhnlich entwickelt. Im ersten Teil des Buches wird Nick Dunne mit dem Verschwinden seiner Ehefrau Amy konfrontiert und mit dem einhergehenden Verdacht der Polizei, er habe mit diesem Verbrechen mehr zu tun, als er zugibt. Jedes Mal, wenn der Leser glaubt, dass es für Nick nicht schlimmer kommen kann, wird noch einmal richtig nachgelegt. Immer wieder tauchen Beweise auf, die Nicks vermeintliche Schuld zementieren.So kommt es dann, dass der Leser Nick, der nicht zu den sympathischen Protagonisten zu zählen ist, trotzdem die Daumen drückt, dass dieser Alptraum einen guten Ausgang nehmen möge.
Über den zweiten Teil und den kurzen dritten, der als ein Epilog zu sehen ist, gehe ich inhaltlich nicht näher ein, um die Spannung nicht zu nehmen, denn eins steht fest: Je weniger man über dieses Buch weiß, um so unmittelbarer ist die Wirkung. Gillian Flynn schickt den Leser auf eine Achterbahnfahrt der getäuschten Erwartungen und Gefühle, wie ich sie in dieser Form noch nicht oft erlebt habe: Die Geschichte wird sprachlich gelungen schnell und mit vielen Überraschungen erzählt. Hinzu kommt, dass Nick und seine Frau Amy ungemein glaubwürdig dargestellt werden; Der Leser erfährt genug aus ihrer Jugend, um sich vorstellen zu können, warum sie welche charakterlichen Eigenheiten (vorsichtig formuliert) erworben haben. Und diese Eigenheiten sind es wiederum, die die Handlung vorantreiben, denn Nick und Amy kennen sich nicht nur gut, sondern setzen ihr Wissen auch ein, um sich, die Polizei und die Medien außerordentlich geschickt zu manipulieren.

Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Dieser Thriller besticht hauptsächlich durch die verschiedenen Erzählperspektiven. Eine verheiratete junge Frau verschwindet spurlos am hellichten Tag. Dabei wird nun aus der Sicht des Ehemanns wie auch der betroffenen Ehefrau rückblickend erzählt. Die Geschichte verursacht teilweise echte Gänsehaut und die Autorin weiß gekonnt den Leser immer wieder hinters Licht zu führen. Die Erzählweise der Autorin ist fesselnd und zeigt die Abgründe eines Paares hinter der heilen Fassade.
Ich kann dieses Buch allen Thriller-Fans empfehlen.

Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Zunächst einmal habe ich mich durch das erste Drittel des Buches gequält. Endlos langatmige Charakterisierungen des perfekten Paares Amy und Nick Dunne in ihrem perfekten Leben in NY. Es Ich konnte deshalb die vielen positiven Rezensionen über dieses hochgelobte Werk nicht nachvollziehen. Nach dem unfreiwilligen Umzug des Paares in eine Kleinstadt am Mississippi kommen aber immer mehr Details über die beiden Charaktere ans Licht. Das nach aussen gelebte Bild des Paares bekommt böse Risse und bricht dann gnadenlos auseinander - die Story wandelt sich zu einem rabenschwarzen und bitterbösen Beziehungs-Thriller. Erst jetzt versteht man auch die eingangs langatmige Einleitung mit den ausführlichen Beschreibungen der Charaktere.
Weiterlesen lohnt also auf jeden Fall, denn von Kapitel zu Kapitel tun sich mehr Abgründe auf und die Situation der beiden wird immer auswegloser.
1 Stern abziehen musste ich für die zeitweise etwas überzogene und dadurch kaum noch nachvollziehbare Darstellung der Soziopathin Amy. Dann ist die Essenz der Einleitung zwar wichtig, letztere ist aber im Verhältnis zur gesamten Story deutlich zu lang geraten. Dafür leider auch einen Stern weniger.
Trotzdem konnte ich vorallem im letzten Drittel das Buch kaum noch aus der Hand legen. Befand sich Ihre Beziehung jemals in einer Krise? Ich verspreche Ihnen, das war nichts im Vergleich zum Verhältnis des Ehepaars Dunne...
