Audio Book Summary

Nominated as one of America’s best-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American Read

Marriage can be a real killer. One of the most critically acclaimed suspense writers of our time, New York Times bestseller Gillian Flynn takes that statement to its darkest place in this unputdownable masterpiece about a marriage gone terribly, terribly wrong. The Chicago Tribune proclaimed that her work “draws you in and keeps you reading with the force of a pure but nasty addiction.” Gone Girl’s toxic mix of sharp-edged wit and deliciously chilling prose creates a nerve-fraying thriller that confounds you at every turn. 

On a warm summer morning in North Carthage, Missouri, it is Nick and Amy Dunne’s fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick’s clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn’t doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams about the slope and shape of his wife’s head, but passages from Amy's diary reveal the alpha-girl perfectionist could have put anyone dangerously on edge. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media—as well as Amy’s fiercely doting parents—the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he’s definitely bitter—but is he really a killer?

As the cops close in, every couple in town is soon wondering how well they know the one that they love. With his twin sister, Margo, at his side, Nick stands by his innocence. Trouble is, if Nick didn’t do it, where is that beautiful wife? And what was in that silvery gift box hidden in the back of her bedroom closet?   With her razor-sharp writing and trademark psychological insight, Gillian Flynn delivers a fast-paced, devilishly dark, and ingeniously plotted thriller that confirms her status as one of the hottest writers around.

    This is my favourite book of the year by a landslide. Flynn makes you dance between loving and hating her characters, but you always admire them. Fast-paced, compelling, filled with twists and never boring. Great narration, too.

    This book was twisted. Extremely twisted and enjoyable. The turns will keep you guessing. The last 25 minutes of the book gave me anxiety. I just could not figure out how it was going to work itself out. Very good read. I loved the narration. Both the male and female parts were well done. Narrators can really make or break an audio book and these two did an excellent job.

    This is one of my favorite books. Way better than the movie (of course)... I did not really liked the male narrator, but it did not make much difference because the book is absolutely fabulous.

    The story line between the antagonist, and the protagonist's, maybe several of them; it's quite a clever continuous twisting, unimaginable deceptive jaw dropping, dangerous reception of belief. It's so amazing however, the language usage is quite unabridged as stated, at any rate I rate this book at 100% pleasurable knowledge that isn't quite inevitable but, revealing sensuality, of naughtiness and incredible affluent. thank you,JpJ

    I was really disappointed by this book. I was annoyed by both main characters and struggled to not quit on the book halfway through.

    Good read...good narration. Abrupt ending. Wasn't expecting that. No wonder they made a movie out of it.
