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
    "Takes a while to get going but then - wow!"

    I struggled with the first hour or two of this, wondering what all the fuss was about as the two protagonists waffle through their rather dreary failing marriage. Even the wife disappearing does not quicken the pulse. I was considering ditching it, but some long DIY jobs kept it going in the background. Then some way in, it transformed into one of the most complex, well thought-out thrillers I have ever listened to. The twists are many and unsuspected and yes, then I understood why this book is labelled "addictive". I will not spoil the plot because that really would ruin it, but it really comes together wonderfully.

    So it is 4 stars because of the rather slow warm-up, but I really would encourage you to try and stick with it, you will not be disappointed.

    "thriller with comment on USA ecomony"
    Would you listen to Gone Girl again? Why?

    some complex bits added little tricks, the extra bits on America and the state of the economy


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

    the killing of...


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

    The two voices were very convincing and easy to listen to and easy for swapping per chapter as the book is written with distinctive chapters.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Are we ever what we expect?

    Story
    "Thrilling read right up until the weak ending."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This is the first book by Flynn that I have read and I very much enjoyed the style and felt involved from the off. The author does a great job of dropping hints and surprising twists throughout. I was a little disappointed by the ending, however this could be a reflection of how much more I wanted to know about the characters.


    Which character – as performed by Julia Whelan and Kirby Heyborne – was your favourite?

    I thought that both Nick and Amy we're were great multi faceted and ultimately flawed characters.


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

    It's a long book, but I was always keen to pick it up again.

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

    You never knew what was round the corner, how the seeds of doubt in the characters personalities developed kept the listener completely engaged...


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Amy was my favourite character in the end; she showed the flakiness of the sociable front and brought to life how perceptions can be deceiving.

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

    Infringe and surprise as the characters showed their true colours more than tears or laughter ~ very thought provoking and entertaining plot...

    "Twists and turns"
    What made the experience of listening to Gone Girl the most enjoyable?

    Well worth a listen one minute you like him the next you like her. Lots of turns and things happen which you forget about.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    No one


    Did Julia Whelan and Kirby Heyborne do a good job differentiating each of the characters? How?

    They got into character


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

    Oh yes how awful the female is and devious

    Did not like the finish for me but you might

    "More twists and turns than a Shakespeare tragedy."
    Where does Gone Girl rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Haven't seen the film but decided to download the audiobook and really enjoyed it - gripping story with lots of unexpected twists.

    "twist and twist again"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    yes, I listen to audio books whilst walking the dog, and the dog got more walks than usual as I couldn't put it down


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

    when she got robbed - I thought she'd been "hoisted by her own petard" so to say, but the author had a neat twist to make me do another3 mile circuit with the dog.


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

    I loved the way two authors alternated and their intonations are very good.


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

    many

    "Thrilling story"
    If you could sum up Gone Girl in three words, what would they be?

    The book is an absolute page turner (well chapter listener - is that a term that makes sense?!). I found myself just sitting in my car wanting to drive around the neighbourhood just so I could listen more. It's awesome. Shame about the ending but that possibly makes it even more disturbing. The book is so much better than the movie - but maybe that's just me?

    "Dull"
    Would you try another book written by Gillian Flynn or narrated by Julia Whelan and Kirby Heyborne ?

    No


    Would you ever listen to anything by Gillian Flynn again?

    No


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Very disappointing. With all the hype about the film I thought I'd read the book first. I have only got to chapter 16 of 64 and found it very dull. It was hardwork listening to it and I have now given up and I don't even want to know where she went!
