Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Gripping!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Gone Girl to be better than the print version?

    Yes, the use of two narrators really sucks you into the story.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The male protagonists and his development through the novel.


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

    Julia Whelan's performance is particularly good, but I can't tell you why!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There are phases, but again I can't say!

    "a love hate relationship with this book"
    Where does Gone Girl rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book hooked me more than most other audiobooks. At times I began to actually hate the main characters - but couldn't wait to find out what was happening next. My partner kept asking me if I was enjoying the book, and I could never say I was enjoying it....but I was desperate to get back to the book and I thought about it all the time when not listening to it.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Nick, then Amy, then Nick, then Amy, then neither one of them. If I say why I'll have to give a spoiler. Let's just say none of the characters is exactly who they say they are when you first enter a reader/character relationship with them. That's kind of the point it think....people do change in relationships


    Have you listened to any of Julia Whelan and Kirby Heyborne ’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    No


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    Well worth a listen...lots of twists and turns

    "A clever idea, but it just didnt do it for me"

    I think this is probably a very good book. Certainly it was the concept of a story from the perspective of two different people that made me buy it. But it didn't grab me. I need a book to reel me in within the first few chapters otherwise I lose patience. Maybe a more patient reader would get more out of this.

    Story
    "shocking,smutty,brilliant,insightful & exciting"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I abhor violence,and the tendency of late for human beings to whilst away their evenings watching women being murdered on television I find abhorant.It is surely a later day version of watching public happenings but from the comfort of the sofa.So it is all the more suprising that I really enjoyed this book,at least the victim is male for once. As a parent I was not keen on the worrying end.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Disregarding certian personality traits ,I have to admit the female lead because it was her astuteness I liked the most.Shame it had to go down the usual path of violence.


    What does Julia Whelan and Kirby Heyborne bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    The book itself is far too long,but dramatised it is doable,you can achieve a lot of tedious mundane jobs whilst being entertained.Best not to listen to when a vicar,your mother in law,or a child is aound,and it is incredibly rude,but it's refreshing honesty did make me laugh out loud.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed at the honest observations about relationships,felt empathy for all of the characters,and the ending disturbed me.

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

    Nothing, I didn't like Amy or Nick's characters or the narrative

    No I don't think so


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    A bit because I wasn't fond of the accent


    You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Not for me

    "Amazing, what a writer!"
    Where does Gone Girl rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This has more twists than any book I have read, but in a good way! This is the best audiobook I have listened to, I even found myself going out in the car to listen to a bit more! This is a must-have audiobook!


    Have you listened to any of Julia Whelan and Kirby Heyborne ’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    Great narration, the voices became the characters and it was so easy to listen to.

    What made the experience of listening to Gone Girl the most enjoyable?

    The plot had lots of unexpected twists.


    Any additional comments?

    This was compulsive listening. Neither of the main characters were likeable but the plot was fast paced and always surprised me. It had many jaw-dropping moments. If you need a complete distraction this is the novel for you.

    "A captivating tale"
    What made the experience of listening to Gone Girl the most enjoyable?

    This is a great story. I suspect it works well as both read and listened to.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Gone Girl?

    The moment I worked out the truth, which I had suspected from almost the beginning of the investigation. From that point on wards I wanted all the details to prove my theory correct. I couldn't get enough of the story and now I have finished it I almost miss the characters and story.


    Any additional comments?

    This is an addictive tale full of twists. After seeing a number of people reading this while commuting I thought i'd give it a go myself. My fellow commuters appeared engrossed and almost oblivious to what was going on around them and I now know why! This book had me gripped from almost the very beginning.
