    Story

    It starts off with a thinly veiled parody of scientology, but you will never anticipate the plot twists Lehane has in store for you. Lehane is a gifted writer who just happens to write mystery/thrillers. I judge my audible purchases by the ones that force me to take detours from my driving destination in order to listen a bit more. Or force me to stay on the treadmill a few minutes longer. This one did that. Repeatedly. Davis does an excellent job with the narration. Highly recommended.

    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?

    Story

    This book will appeal to three sorts of people: 1. People who are married; 2. People who like good writing; 3. People who like twisting plots they don't see coming.

    Know what this book did to me? It had me thinking about it when I was doing other things. And not just the old looking for holes in the mystery.

    Lots of folks love this book but don't like the ending. I actually think the ending is incredibly strong, perfect for the sort of wild ride the book takes you on.

    And there's just a whiff of suggestion we might hear from these characters again.

    Further, I read Flynn's first two books and did this one on audio. I think the audio experience here is superior to reading the book, and I'd rarely say that. The male and female narrators do a nice job. Their voices add to the story.
