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.

"Thrilling apart from the very end"
Built into twists and turns and mostly not predictable. I wanted to listen and find out the next part and I really tried to work out where it was going or in other words I was completely emgaged. I just do wish the ending was as dramatic as the book and the characters deserved but perhaps I just wanted nick to win!!
"A great listen!!"
I wouldn't want to listen to this again as I never read books twice, but I am looking forward to watching the film now.
When it becomes apparent what Amy has done to Nick.
I really enjoyed this audio book, it was slow at first and I nearly gave up on it but I am so glad I didn't. Very clever, twisting plot, but a bit disappointed with the ending.
"Good but it drags initially."
The story needs some hurrying up at the beginning. It took me several goes to get past the drag bits
Could not stop listening. So clever, so twisted was this story that it seriously interfered with my life! Meals weren't cooked, work wasn't done.... My poor children...... I'm quite relieved to have finished it so that I can resume normal activities.
Believe the hype; I was gripped from the beginning and wasn't disappointed. Very long but worth sticking til the end
"Excellent performance, beautifully executed story"
Two things I really loved about Gone Girl were the tight plot twists and the believable turning of the characters. Listen to this, and you are in for a ride.
The voice acting take this book to an entirely new level. I will never be able to read the book without hearing the horribly chippery voice of Amy, or the self-righteous voice of Nick.
"Once you're in, you're hooked!"
I found Gone Girl difficult to get in to when I read the paper version and only got 1/4 of the way through before giving up. Eventually I gave it another go with audible and loved it. It's f****d up in all the right places. I couldn't stop listening!
I would recommend Gone Girl for anyone who loves a book with characters that you love to hate and hate to love. It's a page turner.
Serious. Easy. Different.
This book made me gasp, it made me scream, it made me feel a range of confusing emotions.
READ/LISTEN TO THIS BOOK!
"Amazingly twisty and turny"
Well narrated in both characters.
Storyline gripping, unputdownable.
Characters well drawn out and good his and her chapter writing style
Great read, had to keep listening to find out the next piece of dreadful news!
"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.
