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?

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

IT WAS A GREAT STORY BUT HATED THE ENDING............LIFE'S DEPRESSING ENOUGH.........I LOOK FOR A LITTLE JUSTICE IN MY FICTION

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

IT WAS AN INTERESTING STORY LINE

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

WHALEN AND HAYBORNE DID A GREAT JOB WITH THE AMY CHARACTER.....VERY BELIEVABLE........THOUGH I CAN'T SAY AMY WAS MY FAVORITE

Was Gone Girl worth the listening time?

FOR ME..............NO............I WANT EVERYTHING WRAPPED UP NICE, NEAT, AND SENSIBLY...........SHE SHOULD AT LEAST BE ROTTING IN PRISON

Eerie, dreamlike, set in a world that is weirdly related to our own, The Gunslinger introduces Roland Deschain of Gilead, of In-World that was, as he pursues his enigmatic antagonist to the mountains that separate the desert from the Western Sea in the first volume of The Dark Tower series. Roland, the last gunslinger, is a solitary figure, perhaps accursed, who with a strange single-mindedness traverses an exhausted, almost timeless landscape of good and evil.

The three novels that make up The Forsyte Saga chronicle the ebbing social power of the commercial upper-middle class Forsyte family through three generations, beginning in Victorian London during the 1880s and ending in the early 1920s. Galsworthy's masterly narrative examines not only their fortunes but also the wider developments within society, particularly the changing position of women.
