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.

I can't read . I have no time in my schedule and fall asleep at night so audible is fantastic . Walking the dog , gardening etc . Gone girl is my second book . Is never heard of it . But I downloads it and began . I loved the voices of Amy and nick and how they interpreted other characters . The story line was as Amy is ...'amazing!'
I loved and .. Hated both characters as the book took it's turns and ' shocking ' twists . Respect to the author ..!
If you want to listed to a 'on the edge/ whatever next kind of book . This is it ! Just brilliant
Storyline - amazing !!
Readers - amazing !!
Ending - amazing !!
Unfortunately the book is so 'amazing' that I had to listen at every opportunity. I haven't spoken to anyone is days !!!
First audio book and I'm hooked!
The two narrators brought characters, emotions and even the places to life. It's so much more than a crime story, with it's studies of psychology and society. The language is very powerful. The story twists and turns keeping me engaged. The end is slightly disappointing and improbable. Still a riveting book.
"Gone Girl - Rivitting"
edge of seat
two sides to the story and the slow uncovering of the plot
totally beliveable narration
When the plot was revealed
Really worth a listen
"This story of Amazing Amy is truely amazing!"
A fantastic listen. The first couple of chapters were little hard to get through but totally worth effort. A gripping plot with clever twists. Kept me guessing to the bitter end.
I enjoyed how this book made me feel an alternate mix of both pity and disgust for both main characters at each new revelation.
I really liked the layered dimension that the dual performance added here. Really sucked you into the action as it unfolded.
Not quite sure about the ending though. Thankfully it didn't rush to a quick finish like some but it did leave me with a torturous feeling of "oh no that cant be the end...what next?"
Made me gasp with its twists and turns ! Fantastic story , a must read / listen / watch
Unmissable a must have
Loved it all
"Gone Girl - part 1. ??"
Disappointing ending, otherwise a good story. Maybe a set-up for volume 2. I'd buy that as well.
"Great until the end"
Well paced story, good amount of twists. Until the end. Like waiting for the big finale of a firework show and being presented with a damp squib.
could have been so much better. hated both characters after about 3 chapters. kept hoping and waiting for the twist but it never came and faded into nothing
"Enjoyed the story."
Loved that it kept me guessing for a while and liked the twists. My only criticism is that the ending was maybe a twist too far. Perhaps leaving things open for the next book though? I would read!
