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. 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?

Painfully slow reading by narrators. I had to listen at 1.5 times the speed. Nothing uplifting about it. Want to be depressed about humanity... read this book

Would you consider the audio edition of How to Raise the Perfect Dog to be better than the print version?

I love to be able to listen in the car on the way to work.

What does John H. Mayer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He did a very good job! Loved the voices he used talking from the dog's perspective.

Any additional comments?

I have listened to this book four times, and each time I learn something new!
