This is my post for Letter G for Crime Fiction Alphabet 2013
On their fifth anniversary, the wife disappears and husband doesn't care. The first half of the story comprises of the first person narration by the husband from the day of the wife's disappearance and the wife's diary from the day they met each other to her disappearance. As the piece fall into place, we realise all is not as it appears.
I read a story with a similar premise sometime back and I knew what to expect up to a point so the twists and turns in the first half were predictable but the second half is really the clincher for me. Gillian Flynn toys with the idea how much do we know our spouses.
Here is my full review.
