Overall, the writing and narration of this audio book is high quality. The problem is the story itself which is lack luster to say the least. You keep hoping the suspense will start, but it never does, and the story ends without you ever feeling satisfied.

I have heard other titles by this author are much better, I plan on seeing for myself if that's true!
Even listening for 3 hour sessions while driving, it was hard to stop listening to this great story. Just when you think you have all the characters figured out . . .BANG! The author takes off in an entirely different direction you hadn't even thought of. It is a book full of surprise twists and turns that keeps you coming back for the next chapter. I have definitely found a new author. You will not be disappointed in this book!
this was the first book ive ever heard on audio and becuase of this book I will definitely buy more .. even more from this author . I was shocked when I found out what was really going on .. but to feel like your in the book and there telling you there sides of the story is better got to love it .. great job ..
Nope...GONE GIRL is an overwritten, indulgent diatribe. The characters are whinny and whining does not equate to depth! The plot is painfully slow and puerile. Five minutes in and I'm wondering why the main characters ever married in the first place. 20 minutes in I'm left wondering why Mr. Gone Girl is the least bit concerned about Mrs. Gone Girl's absence when they both are so clearly unhappy together. 4 or 5 hours in, I just don't care enough to listen to the rest! RETURN...
I work a boring office job and these audio books help the time pass until I can get home and be with my beautiful wife and 2 amazing kids!
The characters were great! The suspense of the whole situation the story revolved around kept me in engaged.
The plot was fantastic and then the twist in the story almost made your feelings towards certain characters change. At the start I hated one character and after the twist realized that I was all wrong.
Yes! I started it and couldn't stop. I even listened to it in the car.
Listened just prior to seeing the movie and had read prior. really liked this version and felt that the narrators really captured the essence of Nick and Amy. Would listen to both again
I really liked this book. It was a fun read, I did not want to put the book down. Now I am ready to watch the movie!
Overrated and overlong. I saw the 'twist' coming after about 10 minutes. I was drumming my fingers for the reveal, but it took hours. Finally, it arrived. Then the novel became rather intriguing and gripping. I liked this bit. But then the one of the characters began to behave completely out of character for no reason and from then on the novel descended into clumsy contrivance upon contrivance.
And it's so darn long. It would have made a really good 2-hour David Fincher movie. Oh wait...
The readers are adequate.
No. It was really long and pretty slow in the first half.
The plot towards the end was intriguing. The characters are manipulative and creepy. I needed to know who was to blame. I needed to know if someone would crack under the pressure.
My favorite character was the husband. He was so reserved and suspicious.
Do you really know the person you married?
Badass book. Kirby Heyborne murdured that performance.
