Lying throughout the Novel
Lies Amy had told to make her plan more believable
Amy began lying right from the beginning of the book when she wrote about "Diary Amy" and made the readers believe that that is who she is.
Amy manipulated everyone in her life and exaggerated every story and situation in her life to make people to what she wanted whenever she wanted.
She exaggerated and lied about her "stalkers" Tommy and Hillary. She lied about what she had said they had done to her just to make herself feel more important
She called Desi and lied to him about everything she had to go through. There was very few things that she told him that were actually true. She lied to him so that he would enjoy the situation she was in and he would feel bad for her.
Amy lied to her only friend in Missouri, Noelle. She faked being friends with her to get her to be on her side when she went through with her plan
We see that Amy's new life is a lie, but as readers we
quickly learn that even her past life was all a lie. The Amy we got
to learn, the Amy in the diary entries were all fake, they were a side of Amy that the she made up to make people believe she is sweet and innocent. The diary was only a prop she used
against Nick that she would purposely plant for the police to
find once she put her plan in place.
Amy lies to Jeff and Gretta, her friends, in her new life that she has created so that they won't suspect and discover that she is Amy from all over the news. Both of Amy's lives have been based on lies. She makes sure she has thought of everything in order for her not to get caught in this big lie
Lies Nick told to make himself look better in the media and towards the police
We learned about Nick's lies right from the beginning of the story
"It was my fifth lie to the police. I was just getting started." Nick knew it was wrong to lie to the police but he kept doing it anyways.
The police eventually start to catch Nick in his lies which makes him look more guilty.
Nick's biggest lie was about his affair with Andie and where he was on the morning of Amy's disappearance
I think Nick lies because he feels safer when he does and he feels that lying will help him to control his life and what goes on in it. He was never able to control his life in the past as he grew up in an abusive and damaged home and now that he has the chance to be able to control what goes on in his life, he takes the chance.
