    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?

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

    It took me several hours to get into the book but once I did, it held my rapt attention throughout the remainder of the book. It is definitely a book you can't put down. The narration was good. I gave the book one star because the ending was so disappointing. It was so bad that it literally ruined the rest of the book for me. I would have given it 4.5 stars with a more acceptable ending. I didn't need it to be the ending that I preferred, just an ending that made sense. The book builds to the climax. It is all about the resolution not the process so the ending is critical.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Gillian Flynn again?

    Not sure


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

    Julia Whelan seemed to capture Amy's personality perfectly. I was indifferent to Kirby Heyborne's performance.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Gone Girl?

    The ending


    Any additional comments?

    Listen until the last 2 hours, turn it off and make up your own ending.
