    After losing his leg to a land mine in Afghanistan, Cormoran Strike is barely scraping by as a private investigator. Then John Bristow walks through his door with an amazing story: his sister, the legendary supermodel Lula Landry, famously fell to her death a few months earlier. The police ruled it a suicide, but John refuses to believe that. The case plunges Strike into the world of multimillionaire beauties, rock-star boyfriends, and desperate designers, and it introduces him to every variety of pleasure, enticement, seduction, and delusion known to man.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    DNF - was bored and wasn't up to listening to a whodunit mystery for 10 hours, only to figure out whodunit. Didn't care enough about the characters to want to know.

    Libby Day was seven when her mother and two sisters were murdered in "The Satan Sacrifice of Kinnakee, Kansas". As her family lay dying, little Libby fled their tiny farmhouse into the freezing January snow. She lost some fingers and toes, but she survived, and famously testified that her 15-year-old brother, Ben, was the killer. Twenty-five years later, Ben sits in prison, and troubled Libby lives off the dregs of a trust created by well-wishers who've long forgotten her.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Story = 4 1/2 stars overall

    Great narration, fabulous writing with all of Flynn's specific and dead-on details, and an interesting tale. Every day I couldn't wait to find out more of what was going on.

    It is Nick and Amy Dunne's fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick's clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn't doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media - as well as Amy's fiercely doting parents - the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he's definitely bitter - but is he really a killer?

    Teddy says: "Demented, twisted, sick and I loved it!"
    "BEST BOOK and AUDIO RECORDING EVER!!"

    If you could sum up Gone Girl in three words, what would they be?

    Amazing. Writer-licious. Kickass.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes - couldn't predict what was going to happen.


    What does Julia Whelan and Kirby Heyborne bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    They did such an incredible job with changing up voices to "become" the characters and to portray others in the room with them.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Extremely addicted to it.


    Any additional comments?

    I can't remember a book I've loved in such a looong time. :)
