Publisher's Summary

Marriage can be a real killer. One of the most critically acclaimed suspense writers of our time, New York Times best seller Gillian Flynn, takes that statement to its darkest place in this unpausable masterpiece about a marriage gone terribly, terribly wrong. The Chicago Tribune proclaimed that her work "draws you in and keeps you reading with the force of a pure but nasty addiction." Gone Girl's toxic mix of sharp-edged wit and deliciously chilling prose creates a nerve-fraying thriller that confounds you at every turn.

On a warm summer morning in North Carthage, Missouri, it is Nick and Amy Dunne's fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick's clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn't doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams about the slope and shape of his wife's head, but passages from Amy's diary reveal the alpha-girl perfectionist could have put anyone dangerously on edge.

Under mounting pressure from the police and the media - as well as Amy's fiercely doting parents - the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he's definitely bitter - but is he really a killer?

As the cops close in, every couple in town is soon wondering how well they know the one that they love. With his twin sister, Margo, at his side, Nick stands by his innocence. Trouble is, if Nick didn't do it, where is that beautiful wife? And what was in that silvery gift box hidden in the back of her bedroom closet?

With her razor-sharp writing and trademark psychological insight, Gillian Flynn delivers a fast-paced, devilishly dark, and ingeniously plotted thriller that confirms her status as one of the hottest writers around.

What the Critics Say

"Flynn masterfully lets this tale of a marriage gone toxically wrong gradually emerge through alternating accounts by Nick and Amy, both unreliable narrators in their own ways. The reader comes to discover their layers of deceit through a process similar to that at work in the imploding relationship. Compulsively readable, creepily unforgettable, this is a must read for any fan of bad girls and good writing." (Publishers Weekly)

    "Amazingly torturous"

    The story is amazingly torturous, simply great. The readers were great and the flow of the chapters is incredible. It just kept me begging for more.

    "Great story! Heaven help us all..."

    Not what I expected at all. Ms. Flynn has created an exceptionally startling narrative that chilled me to the core. By the grace of God...a very original story.

    "Great book, great listen!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This was recommended to me by my mother. I have already recommended this book to my friends. Lots of twists and turns, when you think you might have things figured out, it turns again. I never saw the ending coming!


    What other book might you compare Gone Girl to and why?

    Don't know.


    What about Julia Whelan and Kirby Heyborne ’s performance did you like?

    Great, they complimented each other very well.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I was in shocked with every twist. Thumbs up.


    Any additional comments?

    Loved this book, and I would really like to find more like this one.

    "Tedious"

    The book should have been half as long. I could hardly wait to finish. I was surprised at the end - but in a "that's it?" kinda way.

    The narration was good. I liked having two narrators - one for Amy and one for her husband.

    Perhaps an abridged version of the book would be better. It was just too long and I was constantly chomping on the bit for the story to move on.
