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.

"Gone Girl. Or..."
Or, sociopathic nightmare. Utterly brilliant characterisation, charming, romantic, funny and horrifying.
Incredibly creative and fulfilling.
A good story with surprising twists. Narrative could be a little milder, but obviously a sign of the times.
Was gripped from start to finish. A great read, would highly recommend. Was on the edge of my seat the whole time.
Length and unnecessary padding
Had guessed it way ahead
Felt it could have been done in half the time - length is ok if it adds to the story but in this case it seemed to go on and on and on and on before it got to the point which once you've guessed it you are just waiting for. Went great lengths to avoid the film not to know the end but needn't have bothered it was obvious.
"Good book, shame about the end!"
Story was good, well thought out but it went on for a long time. I feel the ending was just rushed to finish the book. Would have liked a different ending.
"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!
