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)

    "They made this a movie?"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    It was an easy listen as my first audiobook, and an interesting story line.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    There were a few twists and turns with the plot but after the first couple you kind of start figuring out where the author is going with the story.


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

    its hard to pick a favorite character from this book. It is easier to say that Amy is my least favorite.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    i have never wished harder for a different ending of a book. It's not that it's a bad ending, it just needs to be different.

    "She's a psycho!"

    This book was as intoxicating and cancerous as the Dunn's relationship. The story becomes a snowball that goes off a cliff then bursts into flame. The ending was unexpected and left us wrung out, mouths agape, begging for more.

    I'm an extrovert who loves books. All that means is I will read a book and tell everyone to read it too so I can talk about it non-stop.

    "Movie worthy"

    Well read, it was a movie in mind. I haven't seen the movie. I like to read (listen) too books before I see the movies so I can criticize the movie LOL

    "You will be unable to stop listening"

    WARNING! If you start this book there is no stopping. You think you know how the story will go but Gillian Flynn is one brilliant writer. You think, she couldn't possibly go there...right? BUT SHE DOES! AND BUYS PROPERTY! This book is dark and twisted in a good way as strange as that sounds. I got this to listen to on a road trip and it's one of my favorite books!

    "The story was..."

    The story was addicting. The only reason I gave it four stars is because it's a really messed up story. You should give it a listen.
