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.

"Not sure I like the ending"
It was good I've never had to narrators before so I gave a new dynamic not sure I like her winning but good book nonetheless
"A fantastic book"
A fantastic book, a little slow to start with but once it gets going it's amazing, definitely a book to read
"Doesn't live up to the hype"
I had big expectations for this book after hearing all of the hype. I went onto gone girl after listening to girl on the train and have to say am disappointed.
The book didn't captivate me at all and I really struggled to listen all of the way through. Although the twists and turns of the book are interesting that just doesn't make up for the lack of story here.
The narration is fantastic though, so well done on that. My tip would be to leave this one and read girl on the train instead-that's fantastic!
amazing book! the story is totally captivating with completely unforseen twists. I loved the way it gave both points of view
"I could be stuck in traffic with this forever!"
great story, very clever plot, fantastic narrators. I didn't want to get out of my car when I got to work!
I maybe shouldn't have read this immediate after The Girl on the Train, as it was nowhere near as enjoyable. Maybe it's because I struggled to like any of the characters, maybe it was the narration which felt like it dragged on, or maybe it was the story itself, but it was very disappointing I overall. Admittedly, there were a few shock moments which kept me going, but other than that it wasn't my cup of tea.
"never heard a story like it but believable. "
never heard a story like it but believable. scarily believable. analysis of some modern women -uber controlling & expecting perfection. I hate the ending. maybe another book
"Slow start, good middle disappointed with ending"
No I don't think I'll be trying another book by Gillian Flynn. The narrators were good but I probably not look for them specifically when looking for my next book
I think how the crime was executed was so calculating and precise, part two of the book was more interesting to me. Part one was a bit of a slog.
Neither, my sympathies lay sparingly with Nick (he isn't that heroic and just takes what is metered out to him), but I thought both were odious characters to a point
This book is already a film and I will not be going out of my way to watch it
This book frustrated me, it started slow, got interesting in the middle, and I could see the majority of the plot riding in on a horse. I stuck it out because my sense of Karma had to see Amy get her comeuppance but it didn't happen and Nick just seemed to rollover. Very disappointed with the ending
A story that that twists and turns and leaves you reeling. Incredibly clever and incredibly dark. Oh! And a great performance.
I hated the narration so much I had to read the actual book instead. This improved it for me loads. The story was gripping. And I couldn't put it down. The ending made me want to scream in frustration However.
