Gillian Flynn has a knack for the dark and twisty and I can't get enough. Gone Girl is a dark and twisted look into a marriage told from both sides in an alternating narrative that really worked well for the story.
I can't say that this is her best, but she definitely doesn't disappoint! I feel like the less you know going into this, the better... so easy to pick up a spoiler in the reviews. So give it a listen for yourself and enjoy the ride!!
Say something about yourself!

motel and fishing scene for such a smart woman this was just dumb
This book is really good. Among all the books I've listened to I would place it as 3rd best.
The whole book was memorable, just when you think you got it figured out... it all changes.
Both Julia and Kirby did a great job narrating, they embraced the characters every well.
I really enjoyed the book and the narrators were good.
I really liked Nick
They did great voices for different characters
Not really, but it did keep me in suspense the entire time
It's hard to write anything about this without giving something away. I was a bit bored at first but got to the point where I didn't want to stop listening. Just when I thought I had it figured out, I was wrong!
Another Audible Addict
Thank you Audible! I am so glad to have discovered Gillian Flynn. I love her prose like style and the way she can describe any situation with attention to the smallest detail. she really makes you really feel like you are inside the story. The performance was great. I like that the male and female parts were read by the same. The plot has momentum, twists and turns. It teeters and totters and will surprise you. The only critisism I was with the end. I thought it got a little far fetched and I also wished it wasn't so vauge. If not that, then I wish it could just go on and on, because it was such a joy to read.
Maybe there will be a Gone Girl 2?
I not only wished that I could have listened in one sitting - but immediately downloaded her other books that were equally engaging. She creates female characters in difficult and dark situations - unlike any other.
I liked it. It is diabolically good. I also like the writing style. The narrators were excellent. The ending was a surprise too. I had to wake up at 6:00am but I could not put it down until I finished listening to it around 1:30am then thought about it for another 30 minutes before fell a sleep :) I'd recommend this book.
The readers. They were so excellent! Smoothy, creamy voices, proper inflections and tones; it was easy to listen to all 19 hours of this book! I really liked the character voice changes.
The twists and turns...not knowing what could happen next. It could go anywhere at any time and that's what kept me listening.
I was slightly disappointed with the ending. Without giving anything away, I just wanted more. It almost feels as though all the good ideas were used for the middle of the book, and by the end, there was not much thought left. I was hoping for more of a feel good, gotcha ending - but I didn't get one. Sad.
This was an amazingly good book, with a totally twisted story. It was darkly entertaining and I just couldnt stop listening. I found myself walking longer and further just so that I could continue listening. The end was a tiny bit of a letdown, but overall I would definately reccomend this book.
