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
    "Very gripping, but essentially nasty."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Gone Girl to be better than the print version?

    Yes, excellent narrators.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Good start, flat middle, and gripping, but unpleasant ending.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The early days


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

    Yes, a real 'page turner'.


    Any additional comments?

    Unpleasant characters all. Nasty little plot. Wish I hadn't got seriously sucked into caring about these people.

    "Very surprising! Love the structure of the book"
    What made the experience of listening to Gone Girl the most enjoyable?

    I loved the way the book was structured, not only shifting back and forth between narrators but back and forth in time as well.
    The narrators did a great job. They enhanced the content, you always knew exactly who was talking. I've listened to some bad performances recently, so I absolutely appreciated the lack of effort I had to put into concentrating.
    I also liked that the ending is not your typical everyone lives happily ever after and it's kind of up in the air.


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

    I think Amy was brilliant. Seemed kind of flat at first, but that was part of her unpredictable character, wasn't it?


    Any additional comments?

    Would definitely recommend. It's a refreshingly different read!

    "Inconclusive"
    What disappointed you about Gone Girl?

    After a promising start the book lost it's grip in parts. The central plot was good but wish more attention was paid to the planning which makes the plot thicker


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Amy's character


    What three words best describe Julia Whelan and Kirby Heyborne ’s voice?

    Articulate, persuasive, cogent


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

    Disappointment - not about the plot but about the lack of authenticity in a relationship

    Story
    "Thrilling...but also SLOW"
    What did you like best about Gone Girl? What did you like least?

    I loved the twists and turns in the story line!
    I did not love the loooong pauses between lines?


    Would you recommend Gone Girl to your friends? Why or why not?

    Maybe...not too sure?


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    I liked Kirby's performance, but I found Julia's to be too drawn out for some reason and she did not connect with the character for me?


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yes...until I got to the end, but now that I know the ending I don't think I would!

    "Couldn't finish this"
    What disappointed you about Gone Girl?

    Mainly the story. Very dull but in a nervy kind of way. Akin to listing to strangers having a heated argument over something inconsequential.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    The Golem and the Jinni


    What didn’t you like about Julia Whelan and Kirby Heyborne ’s performance?

    I found them grating but I think that was more to do with what they we're reading rather than the performance

    "Nerve wracking and gripping story; well told"
    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    This is a long story but don't let that put you off listening. Just when you think it can't take anymore twists or turns.. It does. It is clever. I wanted to keep listening even though I had other things to do.


    Any additional comments?

    It is narrated by Julia Whelan and Kirby Heyborne and they enhanced the suspense in their portrayal of the leading characters.
    I can thoroughly recommend it for those who enjoy devious psychological thrillers.

    "Could not get into it"
    Would you try another book from Gillian Flynn and/or Julia Whelan and Kirby Heyborne ?

    Probably not. This was a book recommended by a friend so I forced myself to listen to at least the first 8 chapters.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Winds of War. Already bought and downloaded it and looking forward it.


    What three words best describe Julia Whelan and Kirby Heyborne ’s voice?

    Slightly over done.

    "Disturbing"

    There were several moments of astonishment at the turns in the tale. The story is a twisted tale of entrapment and will keep you guessing to the end, although I could have hoped for a better or at least more satisfying ending.

    Although the story is quite well written and hard to put down I found the concept quite disturbing. Not a horror story but a horror that could be reality with the right blend of circumstances. The characters were well presented, believable and made me uneasy.

    The narration was excellent.

    "ok but could have been so much better."

    Didn't really like Nick ,Amy or story in the beginning. I found it boring to start with, the middle was good, it kept you wanting to listen and find out........
    but such a disappointing end, ruined the book for me personally.

    Narration was excellent.

    One of those books you want to talk about with everyone, but you can't because it would spoil the great twists.

    Where does Gone Girl rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    A very good book. I did wonder, if I were in a relationship whilst reading it, whether it would have had an impact on that relationship... as it is quite twisted.

    "Disappointed..."

    This book didn't grab me as much as I'd hoped. It starts ok but is a little slow to get going. Somehow it nonetheless ended up capturing me so I wanted to continue to the end. I hoped for a great ending but that did not materialise. Actually it was an anticlimax. The narration was good and the narrator easy to understand. Would I read another book by this author? Maybe but most likely it would be because I had nothing better to hand.

    "Husbands, be warned!"

    Where to start? This story takes 'bunny boiler' to a whole new level, a new stratosphere in fact. Superbly chilling and excellently crafted, we're taken along into the inner most psyche of the ultimate scorned woman, swathed in her madness and neatly returned to our seats when the journey is over; when she decides. 5 stars. The narration is brilliant.
