I recently completed the novel Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. I must say.. it was brilliant. SPOILER ALERT: I was positive that Nick killed her all along until of course we got a view into her mind. Amy is brilliant.. it was all I could think. Wow, who can pull off their own disappearance and frame their husband for it? Someone.. who never stops thinking. I always thought Nick was the crazy one. He didn’t care enough… he acted strangely… and he pictured his wife dead frequently. He was a cheat, a liar, and a dead beat… he had everything going against him. The fact that Amy was able to pull off her disappearance was one thing but pulling off her reappearance made her a genius. This book made me question my own sanity when I realized all the things I have in common with Amy. Too many times have I formulated a strategy to cover up my tracks to play out a lie. I always won. I have a keen ability to see all the possibilities, all the questions people may ask, all the solutions. Was I a psychopath? Am I still one now? Of course not. I’m just smart. Like Amy, my mind never rests, I always want to win, but never to the point where I would endanger someone. The entire book I wanted Amy to win, I never wanted her to die, even after she killed Desi, I was still routing for her to make Nick ashamed of his actions. They were both crazy. A crazy version of soul mates. Two people who couldn’t live with one another and couldn’t live without one another. Everyone has a small bit of psychopath in them. We’re all a little crazy.. aren’t we? We all want to win, some people are just smarter and can pull it off without getting caught…just like Amy.
