Narrators and storyline
The plot has enough twists and turns to keep you wanting more.
Both narrators were top notch. They captured the emotion of the characters in their different state of minds. Very well done.
Gratuitous cursing. Expect mature language.
Yes and I have. The story is excellent, but it's the narration that really sold it for me. Julia and Kirby bring these characters to life in a way that made me both hate to love them, and love to hate them.
Indeed it did. I was nearly obsessed. When I wasn't listening, I was thinking about the story and the characters. I wanted to know what insanity was going to unfold next, and again, the narration was key.
Yes and no. I can get really emotionally involved in a story, so there were times when the craziness was too much for me to handle. However, that didn't stop me from listening for 3-5 hours a day.
I'm terrible at finishing audiobooks. For some books it's a struggle to get past a particular writing style, poor or uneven narration and length. Gone Girl exhibited none of those hurdles. The writing was natural and lended itself to the audio format brilliantly.
Is the story perfect? No. There were some slow moments in the middle and near the end. With so many moving parts and minute details to keep track of, the story seemed too outrageous and unbelievable, but that only made the listening experience that much more enjoyable.
I am one of the people who didn't like this book.
Just didn't like it.
It was OK.
Just didn't enjoy it.
I love to be read to!
Yes very engaging. I good read indeed.
First I thought one character was good then I hated him then liked her then was scared of her… wow.
I really liked the opening. The writing is great and really chilling. Set the tone very, very well.
I wish there wasn't so much profanity in the book. The narration was good, but I hated the book.
Yes. I do not typically read books in this genre. I'm not into livre noir (black/dark books).
I thought this would be much better because everyone has been talking about it. Terrible ending and it was slow to start. I hope they doctored it up for the movie.
There are so many other books that are more movie worthy.

Truly original plot with lots of twists.
The bit when Nick is undergoing fertility testing and the... mechanics... are hilariously described.
When Nick reaches the end of the treasure hunt.
I was constantly in suspense over every detail. I found this a very engaging, totally unique thriller.
Excellent, spot-on performance.
Knowing that there was something really off about Amy and Nick from the beginning.
The ending was the amazing. I loved how Gillian Flynn ended the story.
Loved both of their performances.
I was just a little scared and wondered what if someone like Amy was in my life.
This story has twists that kept me listening to the end. The author takes the novel formula and turns it on it's side. This is a psychological thriller per excellence. The narration was OK, but the story line really grabbed me. Listen when you have plenty of time, because you will not want to stop!
I liked the way the characters portrayed what goes on in a long term relationship.
when nick calls some of Amy's former friends and finds out how she went about framing them
when Amy gets robbed at the cabin
Watch this before you shop for engagement rings.
I really wish the ending had been more satisfying. Felt like the author was leaving room for a sequel or something. very satisfying right up until the last few chapters.
