    It's the summer of 2008. For the past decade, Nick and Bryony Skinner and their four children have ridden high on the economic boom, but their luck is about to run out. Suddenly, the privileged family finds itself at the center of a financial scandal: their Central London house is besieged by the press, Nick disappears, and Bryony and the children become virtual prisoners in their own home. And Ali, their trusted nanny, watches it all. As the babysitter, she brings a unique insider-outsider perspective to the family, seeing far more than even the family itself is capable of.

    Michael says: "Dramatic, irresistible narration of scandal"
    "Sounded interesting- not worth your time"

    This book held a lot of financial talk. I felt like that was the majority of the book, although that was a critical part of the story line. However, the overall story line had a lot of depth it was simply dull. It lacked deep intruique. I found myself half listening most of the time, when there have been other audio books that have captivated my whole attention.

    LAPD cop Scott James is not doing so well, not since a shocking nighttime assault by unidentified men killed his partner, Stephanie; nearly killed him; and left him enraged, ashamed, and ready to explode. He is unfit for duty — until he meets his new partner. Maggie is not doing so well, either. The German shepherd survived three tours in Iraq and Afghanistan sniffing explosives before she lost her handler to an IED and sniper attack, and her PTSD is as bad as Scott’s. They are each other’s last chance.

    Words are like a road map to reporter Camille Preaker's troubled past. Fresh from a brief stay at a psychiatric hospital, Camille's first assignment from the second-rate daily paper where she works brings her reluctantly back to her hometown to cover the murders of two preteen girls.

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

    Just when you think you have it all figured out, there's more to the story.


    Any additional comments?

    My first Gillian Flynn audio book was Gone Girl. I quickly downloaded her other two books, Sharp Objects and Dark Places. I'm truly impressed with her writing style. Both Gone Girl and Sharp Objects captured my attention immediately and throughout the entirety of the stories. I can't wait to listen to Dark Places and I hope she's working on a fourth book! If you've read one of her books, you might as well get them all. If you're wavering, just buy it. You'll be glad you did.

    Have you listened to any of Noah Taylor’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not, however it was difficult to understand his words at first, but simply needed to train my ear. It took but a few minutes. Afterwards I appreciated his voice even more.


    Any additional comments?

    This was a simple story, but truly kept me hooked. I felt pulled in all directions emotionally. A great listen.

    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!"

    What made the experience of listening to Gone Girl the most enjoyable?

    I loved the voices of the two narrators going back and forth as the book was written. This kept the story lively and more "real." Great story line that kept me hooked the entire time. So many twists and turns to the plot. I absolutely loved it.Lots of late nights listening!


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

    They added life to the pages. There was already a lot of substance to the story, but they brought out the characters even more.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes!
