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)

    "Thought she was Gone for Good! Evil woman!"

    Intense, but expected more towards the end. Gone Girl should have her Gone at end.

    "Amazing!"

    A twisted tale of love and deceit. If you love crime thrillers and tragic love stories, then this is the book for you! The twists and turns in this novel are wonderfully constructed. The ending was appropriate and just. Here's hoping the movie measures up! Sometimes they do?!

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

    I wouldn't know, as I didn't try to read the print version of the book. In fact, I've only listened to all of Gillian Flynn's novels and haven't attempted reading any of them.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Gone Girl?

    Well, considering I don't want to ruin anything for anyone, the twists in this plot are ridiculous. Nick and Amy's story is captivating and darkly twisted. The narrators were AMAZING.


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

    No, but not because it wasn't amazing! I couldn't listen to it all in one sitting because after some of the plot twists, I just needed to take a break.


    Any additional comments?

    SUCH a good book, though I personally abhorred the ending. Gillian Flynn has a gift, I didn't know whether to love or hate Nick, and Amy was amazing.

    "Wow!! Really kept you on your toes..."

    That moment when you realize what is really going on... is shocking to say the least.

    Wasn't keen on the voice of "Nick" but loved the voice of "Amy". It was very well read...

    "It's just crap, plain and simple."

    Poorly written with pathetic plot twists substituting for plot. Was this put together on deadline by a marketing committee?

    "Gone, done, but never forgotten...."

    Wow.... just simply wow. This book is "Amazing". With all the hub bub about the movie, I wanted to read the book and form my own opinion. I'm so glad I did. This is a tale I will never forget.
    I can't leave out my two cents worth on the narrators either. They both do wonderful jobs of pegging the characters. And as we Audible listeners all know, a narrator can make or break the audio version of a book. They do it justice.
    I enjoyed this book immensely, and ask recommending it to as many people as I can.
