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
"Gone too far but not far enough"
I downloaded this book on a recommendation from a family member and have to say I really didn't enjoy, I found it quite tedious and didn't like any of the characterisations and found I was getting angry at their antics. It was a struggle to finish and at the time this was one of the first books I downloaded from Audible, so felt committed to finish, fortunately I tend to listen to books when working so it wasn't a complete waste of my time. In a nutshell not one for me.
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.
