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.

brilliant from start to finish

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

would definitely recommend this audiobook in fact i already have.<br/>The narration was excellently done. Each chapter made you want to carry on to the next.

What did you like best about this story?

you were able to transport yourself as a fly on the wall seeing what was happening the emotions which were being portrayed at the time. you were able to to feel the anger and frustration from Nick. The constant disbelief of what was happening. Could someone really be so cruel in the name of love? <br/>Brilliant!!!! well done and well played out.

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

At first i was a bit confuse to how Nicks character was supposed to be as he did not match up to the flash character he was portrayed as in his youth but then as the story unfolds you begin to understand the transformation.

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

yes near the ending but i wont elaborate on that as i don't want to spoil it for others.

Any additional comments?

nowt else i can say really apart from Brilliant!!!

Dragged on

Great start, but it dragged on a bit. It was well narrated, but found it quite difficult to Finnish

Very cleverly written. This story never seems to go where you expect it to and is full of surprises.

Gone Girl. Or...

Or, sociopathic nightmare. Utterly brilliant characterisation, charming, romantic, funny and horrifying.
Incredibly creative and fulfilling.
A must.

Surprised

A good story with surprising twists. Narrative could be a little milder, but obviously a sign of the times.

Got bored

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Length and unnecessary padding

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

Had guessed it way ahead

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

easy listening

Was Gone Girl worth the listening time?

Not really

Any additional comments?

Felt it could have been done in half the time - length is ok if it adds to the story but in this case it seemed to go on and on and on and on before it got to the point which once you've guessed it you are just waiting for. Went great lengths to avoid the film not to know the end but needn't have bothered it was obvious.
