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.

"Good book, well read"
Sorry and readers were very good, downside was the many long silent pauses in the middle of chapters.
"An intriguing tale."
I read the reviews before buying this audiobook and I have to agree with many reviewers. Takes the listener in a completely different direction then pulls you back to a gripping, well woven plot. The end is a total let down and doesn't really stack up to a believable end.
"Could not put this one down."
The story is gripping throughout. An exceptionally good read and an eye opener. cleverly assembled .
"Enthralling from start to finish"
Wondered how I would listen for 19 hrs or so, but the plot, language and the vocal dexterity of the two narrators made it virtually compulsive listening.
This was my first audio book and I loved it. It took me to places I'd forgotten, since I'd graduated uni I've not had the time to read a book and this is an amazing compromise.
Enjoyed it thoroughly. Great voice performances, particularly Julia Whelan.
Rattled through it quite quickly. Great characters giving an interesting twist to an old story
"Clever, enjoyable and different"
The development of the characters and the fact that both people are very unlikeable one just more so than the other.
Be careful who you love
"kept me guessing"
Really liked it. Liked the twists and the different voices for different characters in story.
I'd seen the film and decided I'd listen to this during long work hours (down time). At first the reading put me off slightly, but they quickly adopted each character. The book itself is intense, and keeps you wishing it won't end! I won't say too much, but even if you've seen the film, it's still a great read/listen and shocking.
"Psychologically intense and thrilling"
This book warms up slowly, carefully setting the scene before hurtling you sideways on quite a rollercoaster. I'd certainly recommend it.
