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.

Good read, when it got going

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

It's in the top 10. Not the best book in my library but far from the worst.

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

The detail and planning put into Amy's character.

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

Amy

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

The relationship between Nick and Go was well written

Any additional comments?

Great story, when it got going, but the end left me a little underwhelmed.

Slow to start but excellent story

A well executed and component novel, with a pleasing noir feel; this book is certainly worth it.

What a twist!?

Who was your favorite character and why?

My favourite character is Margo, she stands by him and has great intuition.

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

I've not listened to a book with 2 characters before. Julian and Kirby really fit my idea of the characters. They are brilliant.

Any additional comments?

The book is brilliant it has you sold on one conclusion, until 1/2 way through it just spins it on its head. the end makes you question what you would do in that situation and also how little you can know someone whom you think you love.

Not as good as the hype indicated

It was a boring beginning
and a disappointing end
I tried to read the book myself but kept giving up it was made more interesting having someone else read it

Disappointed beyond belief!

I'll start on a positive, the great narration captured the characters brilliantly & had me feeling knowing of them & if it wasn't for this I would 100% binned this overrated book very promptly!
Good story idea can imagine the film will be good as it would be impossible to drag on as laboriously as this book does!
I can only imagine the publisher wanted a doorstop for a big heavy door & forced the author to a ridiculous page count that killed this book as a good read/listen....
If I didn't drive for a living therefore not wasting my personal time & always finishing a book I would feel robbed of my own time.....HATED IT!

Wow... Remind me never to get into a relationship

The narrative is engaging, fast paced and scary in equal measures. Nick and Amy are in many ways as bad as each other. Wonder what he sequel would or could be..?!

First audiobook listen and I'm hooked.

First audio book

Story is very chilling, the narration made it come alive with all the emotions being betrayed and hidden just like actors in a play. Fantastic listen, didn't want to stop.

Only finished it out of annoyance

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

I really didn't care about either of the main characters in this book which doesn't lend itself for an enjoyable read... people have compared this to Girl on the Train, but I have to say I preferred that immensely to this. Maybe I would have preferred it in printed form as the narrator wasn't easy to listen to but can't say I'd recommend it... although millions of people have bought it so it's obviously just my taste :)

Great Story!

Really disliked the voices which sounds horrible to say but I found them very irritating. Almost stopped listening.
Loved all the twists and turns. Amy is such a great character!

Worth persevering

This is a well written story told through the eyes of the two key players, I liked the dual narration. I found it quite slow to get in to but it is worth persevering. It tells the story of a wife who has disappeared and a husband who despite his protestations, is suspected of killing her. However this is no did he do it story because we as readers know a lot more than the police do. The story has twists and turns and you do not know what is going to happen next; the ending is good. I did not like either character but interestingly, this did not matter much. If you like a crime story with a difference, this is worth buying.
