"Amy disappears on her fifth wedding anniversary, and while Nick has not been a model husband, could he really have killed her? It's soon evident that if Amy is dead, that's the least of the reader's worries. Flynn's last novel, Dark Objects, was a New York Times best seller, but this one is expected to break her out." - Library Journal
I understand the sentiment - "I actually aim to be a book-hoarder. I hate the idea of my grandparents throwing out their old books, so I keep them in boxes until I get my own place. In that place, I WILL build myself a library. Preferably with a secret passageway because I like castles."
