Review:

“Margo always loved mysteries. And in everything that came afterward, I could never stop thinking that maybe she loved mysteries so much that she became one.” (p.16)

Quentin ‘Q ‘ Jacobsen loved Margo Roth Spiegelman since that girl moved into his neighbour. Margo has the all of unique characteristic Quentin fall for her. He thinks that Margo is an amazing girl because she was different in any case as compared with the other girls. She’s stunning, eccentric, and has unexpected different way of thinking. These things became the reason why Quentin has a great interest towards Margo. For Quentin , Margo is an complicated adventure with puzzles that he could never guess before. They both became good friends when they were child . But the thing’s slowly changing as they growing older. Margo became a popular girl. While the nerd Quentin felt himself getting too far away to be able to reach Margo.

Sinopsis:

Marriage can be a real killer.

On the morning of their fifth wedding anniversary, Nick’s wife, Amy, has disappeared. Nick is weak, Nick is a liar, and maybe he’s not the very best of husbands—but is he a killer? Amy’s diary reveals turmoil over their marriage, strange sicknesses, and her deep wish to be a mother—but is she telling the whole story? As the evidence slowly mounts, and the police investigation deepens, Nick is incriminated in horrible ways. He swears he didn’t murder his beautiful wife and goes on the offensive to clear his name. The mystery of Amy’s disappearance only gets more tangled as secret unfurl from the web of their knotty marriage, and it becomes clear that something may have happened more disturbing than death.

Review:

Well, I think I will starting this one with ‘Ouch, I’m not sure about this’ and ‘No, please, not me…’

That’s, uhm, such an expressions of doubt and inability which is has no relevance even a bit with the contents of this book, but about myself.

Since I don’t have the courage to make a review of the books which I think contains of an amazing stories, so I never once even tried. It’s because I was too afraid about what I will write down couldn’t really be able to show how high my feelings for the book, or how I wasn’t sure can reveal the whole part of an amazing story that I want to express, or also I really wasn’t sure how to convince others that this book is really worth to read. It was all because I haven’t find a way (or don’t believe in myself) how to create a promotional words that will reflect the greatness of the book itself. So sometimes when a friends of mine pointed at some books that arranged into one of my shelf’s column and asked about whether it was good or not, then usually I just said ‘That’s a great book. Very worth to read and enough to makes you amazed or learning something’. And when they asked more about how’s the story goes, what’s the topic about, and such thing, I just gave them some major clues until they seems interested to read (without outspokenly spoiler, of course). And at the end, I said again ‘Just read it. That’s a great book, I say’. But I think a lot of it did never worked, it because perhaps I’m not seems like believable person. :))

The point is, make a review from the outstanding masterpiece was ver, very, very difficult thing to do and inconceivable stressful. But for reason that the review I have to make here is one of the series from end year event I had—Secret Santa, so however I need to make a report about the results from reading the book. Since this book is very amazing, so it’s hard, absolutely. But I will try my best for this. Continue reading
