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.

    "Couldn't finish this"
    What disappointed you about Gone Girl?

    Mainly the story. Very dull but in a nervy kind of way. Akin to listing to strangers having a heated argument over something inconsequential.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    The Golem and the Jinni


    What didn’t you like about Julia Whelan and Kirby Heyborne ’s performance?

    I found them grating but I think that was more to do with what they we're reading rather than the performance

    "Nerve wracking and gripping story; well told"
    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    This is a long story but don't let that put you off listening. Just when you think it can't take anymore twists or turns.. It does. It is clever. I wanted to keep listening even though I had other things to do.


    Any additional comments?

    It is narrated by Julia Whelan and Kirby Heyborne and they enhanced the suspense in their portrayal of the leading characters.
    I can thoroughly recommend it for those who enjoy devious psychological thrillers.

    "Could not get into it"
    Would you try another book from Gillian Flynn and/or Julia Whelan and Kirby Heyborne ?

    Probably not. This was a book recommended by a friend so I forced myself to listen to at least the first 8 chapters.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Winds of War. Already bought and downloaded it and looking forward it.


    What three words best describe Julia Whelan and Kirby Heyborne ’s voice?

    Slightly over done.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Gone Girl to be better than the print version?

    I was addicted to this book, such a great story line, so many twists... as soon as you think you know whats happening it does a 180. I loved it. Highly recommended! GET THIS BOOK!

    "Disturbing"

    There were several moments of astonishment at the turns in the tale. The story is a twisted tale of entrapment and will keep you guessing to the end, although I could have hoped for a better or at least more satisfying ending.

    Although the story is quite well written and hard to put down I found the concept quite disturbing. Not a horror story but a horror that could be reality with the right blend of circumstances. The characters were well presented, believable and made me uneasy.

    The narration was excellent.

    Story
    "This Is A Book That Will Make You Think"

    When I was halfway through this book, I was scrolling through facebook and one of my friends had posted the quote: "I want someone who says I love you every night and proves it every day." I nearly asked them if they were reading this book, because this story has made me look at that quote in a totally different way!
    Gone Girl is brilliantly written. I found the first half start to get a bit tedious towards the end, but had read reviews to persevere past the halfway point, so I did. The story changes tack completely at halfway, and then you won't be able to put it down.
    Though many have complained about the ending, I loved it. It is the perfect ending for the disturbing, but exciting thrill of a ride while living in Nick and Amy's world. It's a psychological thriller, that's for sure!

    "Fantastic!!!"

    This is the second book I have listened to narrated by Julia Whelan and again she didn't disappoint, neither did Kirby Heyborne. Both did a fantastic job with their respective characters. The story itself was extremely unbelievable and twisted, but that's what made it such a good read. I love all the twists and turns, it kept you guessing every step of the way, especially at the very end.

    "Novel spoiled by narration"
    How could the performance have been better?

    I do realise that Amy's voice was meant to sound perky at times, but really, listeners are not 8 year olds that need bedtime-story narration with lots of modulation and emotion. It honestly hurt my ears. It is a book for adults please read it like adults. Both characters were in their late 30s but sounded like 16 year olds.


    Was Gone Girl worth the listening time?

    For story yes.

    I can't mention the slight flaw in the story without spoiling it, so I won't. It was also unnecessarily too long, but the story line was OK.

    This want the girls guide to diary writing I thought was. As a male sci-fi fantasy fan, I enjoyed this very much. Loved the mid point change of pace and found myself eager to find out what happened. The performance was superb, Julia does a pretty hot job!!

    Story
    "Spending time in the company of awful people"

    The major problem I had with this book is that the two central characters are so deeply unpleasant. They are self absorbed, self pitying, mean and selfish. Most of the surrounding cast of characters are also rather repellent. All this makes it incredibly difficult to engage with the story as its so hard to generate any sympathy or interest in the lives of these people. The plot is rather predictable, I think there are supposed to be some twists but you can see them coming a mile away.

    "Addictive listening!!!"

    Really excellent story, I thoroughly enjoyed the whole book. The downside for me was in the actual recording - although the narrators were brilliant the recording had loads of 'gaps' in weird places which made me think that the book had stopped or something had gone wrong.
