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.

    "Decent. But that's all."

    My kind of story - a puzzler to unravel.
    Enjoyable, but not up to the hype.
    It'll be interesting to see what the movie makes of it.

    "Brilliant and intriguing"

    I thought I may struggle with this to start with but as I got to know the characters and twists I was hooked!! Can't recommend it enough if you like something to keep you guessing, stick at it.

    Story
    "Disappointing and unbelievable"

    Legend I started listening to this book I was truly gripped. I was on tenterhooks. But as the story unfolded I became more and more disappointed and almost stopped listening. The story became somewhat ridiculous and unbelievable. The characters were both equally despicable and loathsome. I had heard some good things about this book but it failed to live up to my expectations...it won't be on my 'listen again' list.

    "Review"

    Excessively verbose and anticlimactic ending. Would not recommend particularly. Lack of justice seen to be done by the the end

    Story
    "Any semblance to a marriage is purely coincidental"
    Where does Gone Girl rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    In the top tier


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Blah. No lessons learned, except that human kind will always be human.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    The very first party where they meet... The housewarming meet & greet... And when Amy realizes Desi's true motives, huh!


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

    Absolutely. I was home sick and admit to extending my bed-ridden episodes just a tad for uninterrupted listening...


    Any additional comments?

    Having read some literary reviews, I am confused about the themes addressed here. Until those readings, it did not occur to me Flynn was making a social comment about the institution of marriage. There are many good things here (suspense, plot, fantastic character development, fabulous readers) but marriage, in my opinion, is not an ingredient. To me, the one basic premise of marriage - of any serious relationship, loving, family, friendship - is the readiness to put the other's needs first. Amy and Nick are totally oblivious to this simple premise and so their being tied up in a marriage is, to my mind, no more than a literary trick to provide body and frame to their story. But a social comment on marriage? Heck, I do hope society at large agrees with me, or else I may have just solved the mystery of the 50% divorce rate!

    "Great"

    The story was great suspenseful and full of anticipations. The recording sometimes was a little mechanical sounded like a computer speaking.

    Would you listen to Gone Girl again? Why?

    no - i tend not to relisten or reread


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    its best not to give things away- but you cant see most of it coming. even when you can the time line is such that everything is a surprise


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

    no - i was addicted to it so it did dominate my spare time, 19 hours is long

    "Page-turner"

    Gripping story. Ambiguous ending. Great. I'm not usually mad about best sellers but this one really is a good listen. Highly recommended.
    What more can I say.
