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.

    Story
    "unusual and gripping"
    Any additional comments?

    The twist and turns of the plot line equalled the audiobook equivalent of 'unputdownable' and kept me listening all night. Very beautifully read by the narrators. On the strength of this I have just downloaded another book by Gillian Flynn to my library and hope for a similarly enjoyable experience..

    Story
    "Slow starter"
    If you could sum up Gone Girl in three words, what would they be?

    Unexpected, Riveting, surprised


    Would you recommend Gone Girl to your friends? Why or why not?

    Yeah I suppose as long as they give it a chance to get going.


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

    Julia has a tone of sarcasm that's needed to make you like/hate the character.


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

    Nope, I was disappointed at the start and thought it was going to be a boring story but I stuck with it and it got much better.

    "Excellent readers"
    Any additional comments?

    The two narrators really brought this story leaping into life. Definitely a title enhanced by being read in appropriate American accents and also a gripping story with lots of plot twists and a thought-provoking ending. Haunting.

    Story
    "Not the ending I had expected or wished for"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The ending. The last chapter of this book ruined the entire book. I was so disappointed. I had been gripped to the book throughout and thought I had stumbled on an astonishing story. If the author had omitted the final chapter I would have. What was she thinking?!


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

    I was wondering where it was going and then I was utterly dismayed. I thought 'WHAT!!??' and had it been an actual book I'd have thrown it at the wall but I did not want to break my ipod. It's difficult to comment without spoilers! I think this author watched too many hollywood movies.


    What three words best describe Julia Whelan and Kirby Heyborne ’s performance?

    I loved the narration. At first I was a bit dubious of the double act but it quickly grew on me and I found it definitely separated any potential confusion with the story.


    Could you see Gone Girl being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?

    I could easily see it being a movie but change the ending or I won't go to see it. The stars would most likely be Jennifer Lawrence and Christian Bale

    Story
    "Twists and turns. But ultimately too predictable"
    What did you like best about Gone Girl? What did you like least?

    First half much better than the second. Very weak ending.


    Would you recommend Gone Girl to your friends? Why or why not?

    No. It really drags after the first half


    If this book were a film would you go see it?

    No

    Story
    "offensively bad American nonsense"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A semi-plausible storyline would be a good start.


    What could Gillian Flynn have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Write like an adult instead of a pretentious twelve year old.


    What didn’t you like about Julia Whelan and Kirby Heyborne ’s performance?

    That she was reading such s dreadful book. It's not her fault I suppose...


    What character would you cut from Gone Girl?

    The lead. Oh and everyone else. All the characters were superficial.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't bother.

    "Page turner"
    What did you like most about Gone Girl?

    Made you think, tried to second guess where it was heading but didn't guess. Kept me awake when I usually drop of listening, I had to actually force myself to put it down


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

    When you discovered she had set it all up to frame him and make all the evidence point to him


    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?

    I wanted to but had to fit in life


    Any additional comments?

    Very good

    Story
    "Slow start but great story once it got going"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would definitely recommend this book to friends and have done, I just warn them that the start is a little slow so not to give up early.


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

    The start of this story was a little slow and I almost gave up but glad I kept on as it really picked up pace and I found myself drawn into the mysteries and twists, getting angry in turns and then frustrated along with the main characters

    Story
    "Immensely Unlikable characters - but compelling"
    Would you listen to Gone Girl again? Why?

    Yes, the twists and turns of this book make it worth a second listen. It makes you want to understand the complexities


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

    There is no one stand out moment, but it does have a narrative which keeps you listening, I could not "put it down"


    Any additional comments?

    This took me a while to get into - about 3 hours, but once I was hooked - It was immensely readable.
