Publisher's Summary

Thirteen-year-old Julie Whitaker was kidnapped from her bedroom in the middle of the night, witnessed only by her younger sister. Her family was shattered, but managed to stick together, hoping against hope that Julie is still alive. And then one night: the doorbell rings. A young woman who appears to be Julie is finally, miraculously, home safe. The family is ecstatic - but Anna, Julie's mother, has whispers of doubts. She hates to face them. She cannot avoid them. When she is contacted by a former detective turned private eye, she begins a torturous search for the truth about the woman she desperately hopes is her daughter.

Propulsive and suspenseful, Good as Gone will appeal to fans of Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train, and keep listeners guessing until the final minutes.

    "Great narration to this unraveling mystery!!"

    I LOVED this book. Very well told, interesting characters and questions, multiple perspectives, non linear storytelling. The unraveling of past and present simultaneously. And truly amazing narration. The different voices of each character felt truly each their own. I really enjoyed this audio book!

    Story
    "A gripping story well-told."

    The story takes you in from the very first chapter and doesn't let go. Alternating timelines unfold in a way that keeps you guessing. It shares some elements in common with other immensely popular novels (especially Gone Girl and Girl on the Train), so this would likely be enjoyable to people who liked those. The performance is also excellent - the actor's voice is pleasant and she provides just enough character in the voices to give them color without being distracting. This is an excellent summer listen, but watch out: I got sucked in and ended up listening to all 7 hours in 2 days!

    Story
    "Quick (Mildy) Satisfying Listen"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I really wanted to love this book. I am a sterotypical fan of "Gone Girl", Luckeist Girl Alive, Etc, and I have o say that this book does not hold a torch. It reminded me very much of Lisa Lutz' The Passanger; although the ending felt rushed and a lot of loos ends weren't tied up.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The disappearance of Julie and the shifting prespectives. You need to suspend belief for some of the story in able to enjoy because it is quite unrealistic. It's loosley based on the abduction of Elizabeth Smart


    What three words best describe Karen Peakes’s performance?

    animated, easy to listen to, kept me engaged


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    unlikely considering all of the similar books in this genre.


    Any additional comments?

    I prefer Luckiest Girl Alive or The Passanger to this book. Again, quick read, but no real substance or character development.

    "Listened all the way through"

    I am not sure what to write. I listened to this without stopping. It kept me intrigued. I loved the story line. At times I was bored. But all in all it was pretty good. Leaves me wanting to read/listen to more of Amy Gentry's writings.

    "Good enough."

    The story was fine, nothing too twisty or shocking. Overall I wouldn't put this on a must read list, but it kept me entertained. Love the narrator.
