Product description

En un caluroso dia de verano, Amy y Nick se disponen a celebrar su quinto aniversario de bodas en North Carthage, a orillas del rio Mississippi. Pero Amy desaparece esa misma manana sin dejar rastro. A medida que la investigacion policial avanza, las sospechas recaen sobre Nick. Sin embargo, Nick insiste en su inocencia. Es cierto que se muestra extranamente evasivo y frio, pero es un asesino? "Perdida" arranca como todo buen thriller que se precie: una mujer desaparecida, una investigacion policial... Pero "Perdida" es mucho mas.. Es una obra maestra. Un thriller psicologico brillante con una trama tan apasionante y giros tan inesperados que es absolutamente imposible parar de leer. "Perdida" es tambien una novela sobre el lado mas oscuro del matrimonio, sobre los enganos, las decepciones, la obsesion, el miedo. Una radiografia completamente actual de los medios de comunicacion y su capacidad para modelar la opinion publica. Pero sobre todo, es la historia de amor de dos personas perdidamente enamoradas.

Review quote

"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. A" "--"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"
