Ani FaNelli seems to have it all: a glamorous job at a glossy magazine, an enviable figure with the wardrobe to match, and a handsome fiancé from a distinguished blue-blood family. But Ani FaNelli is an invention, that veneer of perfection carefully assembled in an attempt to distance herself from a shocking, sordid past.

I really wanted to like this book. I listened to it through Audible. I kept waiting and waiting for it to get better, but it didn't. Once I had invested so many hours into listening to it I had to finish it, but it never got any better. I felt the story was very disjointed. The storyline skips around too much and lacks cohesion. Thumbs down from me.

It is Nick and Amy Dunne's fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick's clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn't doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media - as well as Amy's fiercely doting parents - the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he's definitely bitter - but is he really a killer?

I thoroughly enjoyed this entire book! Wonderful character development and very well written. I didn't really know much about this book before listening to it, surprisingly! I found it to be completely unpredictable, full of great twists and turns that I did not see coming. And I LOVE that!
