Beautiful characterization. Suspenseful; twists and turns totally unexpected.
The story is very well written.
They did an excellent job bringing the characters to life and keeping the suspense moving.
This book exceeded my expectations. I am going to explore other books that Gillian Flynn has written.
Hard to say. Probably Amy because I can relate.
No I haven't.
Not really but it was hard to put away.
I love the plot, twist and oh my gosh, is this really the end of the book?!! Please tell me there is a part two in the works!
I was less than impressed with the male audio performer. I'm an avid audiobook customer and I rarely ever write reviews...except I'm so disappointed in his performance. His auto tune voice kept pulling me out of the story wondering if a robot or "voice machine" was reading the book to me. The female performer was good, and the story was great. I'll keep and eye out for Kerby (male voice) and make a note not purchase any of his performed books again. And for those of you who think I'm crazy, just replay any sentence including him saying "my wife" and tell me Mr. Kerby doesn't sound like a robot!
I loved that, just when you think you can figure out what is going to happen, the story line takes a 180. It is written and performed so well. It is my all time favorite book. This is what I need in a book, mystery, suspense, romance (Of sorts) twists and turns. It is pure perfection!!!
No, it is a bit long and knowing all the twists, it would be ruined.
Great narrators, both of them.
The ending. It kind of sucked, but made sense. I wish it would have worked out the way everyone would have wanted it.
I had heard that this story was full of twists and turns and that I would hate the ending....but with the movie coming out I decided to move it from my Wish List and into my Library and get it done. I'm glad no one gave away the plot. I thought I had it all figured out in the beginning and I was wondering what all the fuss was about. Come on, Nick is just an ahole and Amy had every right to be unhappy. Then you keep reading. Wait, is Nick lying? Is he crazy? Or is Amy? Wait, what is going on? I love it when you finally get the whole story and can piece it all together, but it is maddening until then. I'm still sort of trying to figure out what the heck happened really. Did I hate it? Did I love it? Not sure, honestly. Bottom line it was entertaining and totally different than any other book I have read. It kept my attention and I listened to it in like 3 days. It's definitely a story I want to talk about with others that have read it and I can't wait to see the movie.
Starting off I couldn't shop listening. Then towards the end...I was no longer interested.

Movie. And many will be disappointed as well.
I tried to read this book and couldn't so I thought it might be easier to listen to, nope. Not to offend but it just isn't appealing to me. The writing style was very superfluous and the narration was read extremely slow.
Gone Girl is long, about twenty hours. No complaints there, like ‘m long. This story is a first person account read by Julia Whelan and Kirby Heyborne, each taking the roles of the individual characters of Amy and Nick Dunne respectively. Chapters or scenes are alternating voices of the lead characters. Nicely done.
The story is of a dysfunctional marriage, a tale of two people equally devious in personality. Although this is revealed throughout a few thousand reviews, the plot is a straightforward account of a wife faking her own death to exact revenge on an unfaithful spouse. The police do the typical rush to judgement, i.e., the husband is guilty. Which he is, of infidelity and being a jerk, but of murder? No spoilers. Lots of twists. Let’s just say they are both guilty of something and leave it there. The writing is excellent. The narration is excellent. Enjoy.
