    Andy Barber has been an assistant district attorney in his suburban Massachusetts county for more than 20 years. He is respected in his community, tenacious in the courtroom, and happy at home with his wife, Laurie, and son, Jacob. But when a shocking crime shatters their New England town, Andy is blindsided by what happens next: his 14-year-old son is charged with the murder of a fellow student.

    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?

    "Excellent Book"

    Where does Gone Girl rank among all the audiobooks you???ve listened to so far?

    One of the best I've ever read.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Gone Girl?

    I was fascinated by each character and by myself as I changed sides.


    What about Julia Whelan and Kirby Heyborne ???s performance did you like?

    Both narrators were amazing!


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

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    Jan says: "What a great surprise!"
    "Absolutely Engrossing"
    Overall

    I have NEVER written a review of an audiobook. Not because I haven't thoroughly enjoyed previous books, but mostly because I wasn't inspired to necessarily tell others about a book just because I enjoyed it. But...The Help is one of those books that I just have to tell others about. I loved every minute of this book. The narration was EXCELLENT!!! Every voice was captivating. The writing was so profound. I really can't say enough about it. I tell everyone who will listen how great this book is. You won't be disappointed.
