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.

Disappointed...

This book didn't grab me as much as I'd hoped. It starts ok but is a little slow to get going. Somehow it nonetheless ended up capturing me so I wanted to continue to the end. I hoped for a great ending but that did not materialise. Actually it was an anticlimax. The narration was good and the narrator easy to understand. Would I read another book by this author? Maybe but most likely it would be because I had nothing better to hand.

Audio Book

yes I did enjoy this book. The outcome was not what I expected. The ending a little unfinished but the author is getting ready for part 2. I would read a follow up well done

Husbands, be warned!

Where to start? This story takes 'bunny boiler' to a whole new level, a new stratosphere in fact. Superbly chilling and excellently crafted, we're taken along into the inner most psyche of the ultimate scorned woman, swathed in her madness and neatly returned to our seats when the journey is over; when she decides. 5 stars. The narration is brilliant.

Excellent

Loved it from start to finish. The only problem is trying to listen and getting interrupted by family asking 'am I ever going to listen to them?!'

Yes

What character would you cut from Gone Girl?

Roller coaster!

A great book with lots of ups and downs. Little bit slow to get going but once it did it was fantastic.

Disappointing ending

I enjoyed the book and loved the back and forth between the two characters. However thought the ending was a little disappointing.

Brilliant!

It took a little while to warm to the story at the start, but soon I was hooked. I loved all the twists and turns, right up to the end.
