Publisher's Summary

What are you thinking, Amy? The question I've asked most often during our marriage, if not out loud, if not to the person who could answer. I suppose these questions storm cloud over every marriage: What are you thinking? How are you feeling? Who are you? What have we done to each other? What will we do? Just how well can you ever know the person you love?

These are the questions that Nick Dunne must ask himself on the morning of his fifth wedding anniversary, when his wife Amy suddenly disappears. The police immediately suspect Nick. Amy's friends reveal that she was afraid of him, that she kept secrets from him. He swears it isn't true. A police examination of his computer shows strange searches. He says they aren't his. And then there are the persistent calls on his mobile phone.

So what really did happen to Nick's beautiful wife? And what was in that half-wrapped box left so casually on their marital bed? In this novel, marriage truly is the art of war.

just when you think it's clever, it gets cleverer!

fantastic story. love the alternating chapters from the two narrators. very smart female male differences. fantastic twists. a real "page turner" if that's possible with an audio book and I think the two actors did a splendid job of narrating. ignore the reviews that day they say they are unlikeable at the start, I find them both very engaging from the off. amazing way you take sides and switch sides as the story progresses. fantastic!!!

Great actors and amazing story

Where does Gone Girl rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Very high

What other book might you compare Gone Girl to, and why?

Girl on a train

What about Julia Whelan and Kirby Heyborne ’s performance did you like?

I had seen the film and could actually match the voices to the movie stars. It didn't clash. There are not enough audio books with more than once actor. Fifty shades of grey could learn something from the production of this.

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

The 'cool girl' speech!!

Keeps you guessing even after it ends

What did you like best about this story?

The book constantly manipulated you into thinking one thing, then twisted it round to make you wonder the complete opposite. There was never a moment when I knew what was going to happen, the characters so carefully constructed and interconnected to constantly keep you guessing.

Disappointing ending.

I thought the ending would be more than Amy's smugness, and Nick's quiet defeat.

Brilliant performance but overhyped book

Would you try another book written by Gillian Flynn or narrated by Julia Whelan and Kirby Heyborne ?

Probably not by the same author, but would consider readings by these narrators who brought the characters to life

If you’ve listened to books by Gillian Flynn before, how does this one compare?

N/a

Have you listened to any of Julia Whelan and Kirby Heyborne ’s other performances? How does this one compare?

N/a

Was Gone Girl worth the listening time?

Probably not- disappointing overall

Any additional comments?

This book had had huge publicity and has a good concept but is overworked and loses credibility.
