What are you thinking, Amy? The question I've asked most often during our marriage, if not out loud, if not to the person who could answer. I suppose these questions storm cloud over every marriage: What are you thinking? How are you feeling? Who are you? What have we done to each other? What will we do? Just how well can you ever know the person you love?
These are the questions that Nick Dunne must ask himself on the morning of his fifth wedding anniversary, when his wife Amy suddenly disappears. The police immediately suspect Nick. Amy's friends reveal that she was afraid of him, that she kept secrets from him. He swears it isn't true. A police examination of his computer shows strange searches. He says they aren't his. And then there are the persistent calls on his mobile phone.
So what really did happen to Nick's beautiful wife? And what was in that half-wrapped box left so casually on their marital bed? In this novel, marriage truly is the art of war.

"ok but could have been so much better."
Didn't really like Nick ,Amy or story in the beginning. I found it boring to start with, the middle was good, it kept you wanting to listen and find out........
but such a disappointing end, ruined the book for me personally.
"Best Narration I've heard in a while."
Narration was excellent.
One of those books you want to talk about with everyone, but you can't because it would spoil the great twists.
Well written and very well preformed. thoroughly recommended to listen to . enjoy the ride
"A very good book."
A very good book. I did wonder, if I were in a relationship whilst reading it, whether it would have had an impact on that relationship... as it is quite twisted.
"Tragic & tortuously brilliant"
A deadly diary with smooth Panic attack passed charters.
A real insight into marriage and manipulation.
Done done done!
"Good , but...."
This is a good story just a pity about the foul language and cursing.
This book didn't grab me as much as I'd hoped. It starts ok but is a little slow to get going. Somehow it nonetheless ended up capturing me so I wanted to continue to the end. I hoped for a great ending but that did not materialise. Actually it was an anticlimax. The narration was good and the narrator easy to understand. Would I read another book by this author? Maybe but most likely it would be because I had nothing better to hand.
yes I did enjoy this book. The outcome was not what I expected. The ending a little unfinished but the author is getting ready for part 2. I would read a follow up well done
"Husbands, be warned!"
Where to start? This story takes 'bunny boiler' to a whole new level, a new stratosphere in fact. Superbly chilling and excellently crafted, we're taken along into the inner most psyche of the ultimate scorned woman, swathed in her madness and neatly returned to our seats when the journey is over; when she decides. 5 stars. The narration is brilliant.
Loved it from start to finish. The only problem is trying to listen and getting interrupted by family asking 'am I ever going to listen to them?!'
