    They were just kids when they stumbled upon the horror of their hometown. Now, as adults, none of them can withstand the force that has drawn them all back to Derry, Maine, to face the nightmare without end, and the evil without a name.

    "Best Narration Ever"
    Overall

    I have been an Audible subscriber for 5 years, so have heard more than 60 narrators. Steven Weber brings each character to life and gives this story a depth and vitality that generally can only be experienced when reading a book yourself and you apply your imagination to the story. The narration makes this book worth every minute and every penny. Thank you, Steven Weber.

    What could The Wall Street Journal have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I have been subscribing to the audio Wall Street Journal for years, and the Weekend Edition was one that I always looked forward to, until about 3 months ago. The articles that are chosen have limited appeal to people who don't live in New York. There is often something about real estate, and the theater selection is useless for me. I live in San Diego, and it would be nice to hear one of the more human interest stories that are included in the Weekend Edition, rather than hear a listing of the theater shows and times for the weekend. I used to enjoy the wine column, but that was removed some years ago. Now I mostly fast forward from one article to another. It's a shame - I used to really enjoy this bonus read.

    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 would have made Gone Girl better?

    I rarely write reviews, but I feel compelled to do so with this book. It really had me going, and even with the twists and turns, I could suspend disbelief and enjoy the story. But the ending was so disappointing that I can't rate it highly. I can't even recommend it to anyone because it was such a letdown. Without giving too much away, I have to say that the police investigation was incredibly unbelievable at the end, that the characters' reunion was bizarre and equally unbelievable, and the final twist and "resolution" left me feeling as tricked and betrayed by the author as the characters felt by each other.

    A better ending, with some plausible reactions by all of the characters would have made this book better. I am astonished that the author expects us to believe this ending. There are too many flaws that make it ridiculously incredible.


    What aspect of Julia Whelan and Kirby Heyborne ’s performance would you have changed?

    I think Julia Whelan was fabulous. Kirby Heyborne's voice was too high, and initially sounded almost like a woman.

    First, the unthinkable: a security breach at a secret U.S. government facility unleashes the monstrous product of a chilling military experiment. Then, the unspeakable: a night of chaos and carnage gives way to sunrise on a nation, and ultimately a world, forever altered. All that remains for the stunned survivors is the long fight ahead and a future ruled by fear—of darkness, of death, of a fate far worse.

    "Annoying Narration, Simple Story"
    Overall

    This narrator is overly dramatic and, in my opinion, turns a mediocre book into a painful discourse. If the story had been more interesting, I might have stuck out the narrator, but with the two combined, I gave up listening after the first 5 hours (which was way too much time spent).
