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.

    "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.

    Story
    "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.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Gone Girl to be better than the print version?

    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!

    Story
    "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.

    Reading is one of my great loves, but as a busy mum to 4, I seldom have the time to sit down with a good book. Audible changed that for me.

    "This Is A Book That Will Make You Think"

    When I was halfway through this book, I was scrolling through facebook and one of my friends had posted the quote: "I want someone who says I love you every night and proves it every day." I nearly asked them if they were reading this book, because this story has made me look at that quote in a totally different way!
    Gone Girl is brilliantly written. I found the first half start to get a bit tedious towards the end, but had read reviews to persevere past the halfway point, so I did. The story changes tack completely at halfway, and then you won't be able to put it down.
    Though many have complained about the ending, I loved it. It is the perfect ending for the disturbing, but exciting thrill of a ride while living in Nick and Amy's world. It's a psychological thriller, that's for sure!

    "Fantastic!!!"

    This is the second book I have listened to narrated by Julia Whelan and again she didn't disappoint, neither did Kirby Heyborne. Both did a fantastic job with their respective characters. The story itself was extremely unbelievable and twisted, but that's what made it such a good read. I love all the twists and turns, it kept you guessing every step of the way, especially at the very end.

    "Novel spoiled by narration"
    How could the performance have been better?

    I do realise that Amy's voice was meant to sound perky at times, but really, listeners are not 8 year olds that need bedtime-story narration with lots of modulation and emotion. It honestly hurt my ears. It is a book for adults please read it like adults. Both characters were in their late 30s but sounded like 16 year olds.


    Was Gone Girl worth the listening time?

    For story yes.

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

    Definitely!!!


    Any additional comments?

    I would have preferred a better ending

    "Addictive book with awesome twists throughout"

    A really enjoyable and addictive book that kept me guessing throughout. I was a little confused how so much was allowed to go unexplained by the police, but still a great story and a neat idea of writing it from both of their perspective.

    "Good, but not as good as I hoped it would be."

    This was my 1st audiobook and I enjoyed the majority of it. Unfortunately I thought the ending was a let down. The narration was great, very easy to listen to. I just don't think it lived up to the potential it showed.

    I liked most parts of the book, it was a good listen. The ending was rubbish but don't let that put you off. The character's are very annoying but they're meant to be. I've watched the film now and the book it much better.
