She seems to be the perfect wife, but is there something else there. She is known for analyzing the world in quizzes due to her past job of making quizzes for a magazine. Since she was a true New Yorker, she was not happy having to move to a small town in Missouri, where she would have nothing awaiting her. Amy has also been known to be manipulative and difficult towards to her husband, What side is real?
The main theme of Gillian Flynn's novel Gone Girl is dishonesty. This character trait runs deep in both Nick and Amy. Early in the novel Nick does not appear to be dishonest., but you see glimpses into his dishonesty when he reflects on his childhood. His sister Go recalls he always had trouble telling the truth. His dishonesty is evident throughout the entire investigation after his wife disappeared. He continues telling lies and being dishonest through during questioning, but Nick might have more to his problem than these lies. Amy was also deceitful throughout the book. She easily manipulated, and told lies to everyone around her. In fact, her life was building upon lie after lie. These two characters are going to live under a false reality built on lies and infidelity. Dishonesty is clearly evident from start to finish as the major theme of this novel.
