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.

Yes, excellent narrators.
Good start, flat middle, and gripping, but unpleasant ending.
The early days
Yes, a real 'page turner'.
Unpleasant characters all. Nasty little plot. Wish I hadn't got seriously sucked into caring about these people.
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.
I think Amy was brilliant. Seemed kind of flat at first, but that was part of her unpredictable character, wasn't it?
Would definitely recommend. It's a refreshingly different read!
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
Articulate, persuasive, cogent
Disappointment - not about the plot but about the lack of authenticity in a relationship
I loved the twists and turns in the story line!
I did not love the loooong pauses between lines?
Maybe...not too sure?
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?
Yes...until I got to the end, but now that I know the ending I don't think I would!
Addicted to Audible.
LOVED Gone Girl and recommended it to six others to read.
I haven't experienced a book like this before with so many plots and twists.
Brilliant book. Well thought of, well written and well read.
Mainly the story. Very dull but in a nervy kind of way. Akin to listing to strangers having a heated argument over something inconsequential.
The Golem and the Jinni
I found them grating but I think that was more to do with what they we're reading rather than the performance
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.
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.
Probably not. This was a book recommended by a friend so I forced myself to listen to at least the first 8 chapters.
Winds of War. Already bought and downloaded it and looking forward it.
Slightly over done.
I was addicted to this book, such a great story line, so many twists... as soon as you think you know whats happening it does a 180. I loved it. Highly recommended! GET THIS BOOK!
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.
"Best Narration I've heard in a while."
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.
Well written and very well preformed. thoroughly recommended to listen to . enjoy the ride
"A very good book."
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.
"Tragic & tortuously brilliant"
A deadly diary with smooth Panic attack passed charters.
A real insight into marriage and manipulation.
Done done done!
"Good , but...."
This is a good story just a pity about the foul language and cursing.
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.
yes I did enjoy this book. The outcome was not what I expected. The ending a little unfinished but the author is getting ready for part 2. I would read a follow up well done
"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.
Loved it from start to finish. The only problem is trying to listen and getting interrupted by family asking 'am I ever going to listen to them?!'
Nothing for me, hated this book
Maybe think gillian flynn just not for me this is my 2nd book of hers and disliked both
Most of them
would not recomend
