Yes! I ended up staying up until 2:30 one night, because I had to hear what happened next! There are so many twists and your loyalties to characters change so many times, it's really compelling.
Both narrators were well-cast for the character - they both gave believable performances, particularly Julia Whelan as Amy.
This book has really stuck with me - I'm still thinking about it, two weeks after I finished it. It's dark, especially the ending, but it has some really interesting observations about the media-saturated culture we live in. For me, it's a one-time read . . . I liked it, but I don't think I can go on that roller-coaster again!

A crazy person
I would have gotten to the point earlier, there was a lot of back and forth in this book. I found it hard to listen to.
Anger and disappointment
Looking for a mystery/suspense novel with a likeable hero who is falsely accused of a crime but through his own wits and determination overcomes the odds to clear his name? Do you want a villain who gets her comeuppance? Then this is not the book for you. But if you want a novel that is unflinching in its depiction of an antagonist who is a completely, 100% purely evil psychopath and a protagonist who, as the story develops, reveals his own psychopathic tendencies, then read this book. You may not be satisfied with the ending, but you shouldn’t be surprised.
My first Gillian Flynn, takes a while to get involved but then you are hooked and this one keeps you guessing until the very last page. A great mystery just go for it.
Love historical fiction, mystery, suspense, and good meaty books.
Couldn't stop listening.
The 2 voices really made a difference in hearing the story.
I loved the way Julia said, "Amazing Amy."
Hoda Kotb reccommended this read on the Today Show so I purchased on a whim. I was pleasantly surprised at the plot twists and had to keep listening! Nothing is predictable! Loved it!!!!
I didn't love the book, but I didn't hate it either. For me, it was just o.k. Once I started the book, I was interested enough to finish it, so I would have to say it was time well spent. However, by the time I got to part 3, I was restless, but determined to finish it, which I did.
I didn't have a problem with it. It definitely didn't spoil the book for me. I actually thought it was in keeping with the content of the rest of the book.
I didn't have a favorite. None of the characters were truely likeable.
I hope it ends here and does not go to movie status. That would definitely be a waste of time.
This is truely a book about dysfunctional people. I would say that applys to everyone including the lawyer.
yes - due to intricate changes and trying to figure everything out - keeps you guessing to the end!
I don't use that word lightly. I've stopped listening to audio books that didn't keep me interested, and this one literally kept me riveted to my headphones. Kirby Heyborne is great as Nick, his narration is truly what makes this book so listenable. He uses a variety of different voices for the different characters he voices, and a few times I thought to myself that it was yet a third narrator, but no, it's just the remarkably versatile voice of Heyborne. Julia Whelan is excellent as well, and definitely conveys the dark side of her character convincingly. The story with it's twists and turns kept me on the edge of my seat and scratching my head as to how Flynn was going to convincingly pull all the threads back together. The four stars for the story is because I wanted a different resolution to the story...I wanted justice. But ultimately, the ending is in keeping with the events and feel of the book. If you enjoy a dark psychological thriller with characters that are more like real people with multiple dimensions both good and bad, I highly recommend "Gone Girl". You will not be disappointed.
I loved all the turns and twists in this story. Just when I thought I had it all figured out, the author would throw in another road block.
Julia was a perfect voice for Amy, but Kirby was lacking as Nick.
This book made me really angry with the characters. Without giving away too much, there were many times I just wanted to reach out and slap Amy. GRRR!
