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.

"Gripping. Had me hooked from the opening chapter."
Gripping. Dark. Brilliant.
The Thirtennth Tale; a dark, gothic read which has the reader on th edge of their seat.
The final scene in Gone Girl was fantastic. It is testament to the vice which this book had over me - I could never tell what would happen.
Yes - and I did.
Not a masterclass. But very close. I was so hooked to this book that I just couldn't tear myself away from it!
"Love Gillian Flynn"
3rd Gillian Flynn I've read love this writer never disappointed. Story keeps you gripped even though your second guessing.. Great
mad mind games
Really spend a lot of time driving to pick up my teenage kids- kept encouraging them to go out so I could listen to some more! Worth an few hours to listen to this.
watched the film1st which confused me but this book is so well written
it made me understand! such a gripping story line with loads of unpredicyable twists! loved it!!!
I wanted to read (or have read to me) the book before seeing the movie. That kinda gal and I didn't have great expectations but loved it. Twists and turns that you can expect as an overall the the little things are really shocking. Must read
Gone Girl is a breath of fresh air with a great twist. Five stars from me. I may even give the movie a whirl.
I loved this book right up until the ending. Is it going to have a sequel? Read it , you decide.
What a great storyline, the two main characters at the end...I don't want to put in any spoilers but it is worth the listen to the end!
The way the tone of the book completely changed half way through, the end was brilliant!
Neither to be honest, but 'Amy' was so very well narrated
It was quite a thought provoking book, again, I don't want to mention too much because I don't want to include any spoilers for listeners/readers who have yet to get this, but suffice to say, the characters were so foul & unlikeable in themselves, the ending was just superb!
Slightly off-putting with the annoying American accents but then the author is American, so suck it & up & keep listening!
"Gripping with a good twist..."
...But a bit of an anti climax at the end in my opinion. Unless there's a second book coming out!
"Tough to follow"
Not sure who would enjoy this, someone who has time to actually focus on listening to it as it jumps back and forth.
understandable exciting informative
the story is a good one and I've seen the movie, which I enjoyed, but this book jumps back and forth too much between the two characters and it's hard to stay focussed.
