Summary:

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • The “mercilessly entertaining” (Vanity Fair) instant classic “about the nature of identity and the terrible secrets that can survive and thrive in even the most intimate relationships” (Lev Grossman, Time).

NAMED ONE OF TIME’S TEN BEST FICTION BOOKS OF THE DECADE AND ONE OF ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY’S BEST BOOKS OF THE DECADE

NAMED ONE OF THE TEN BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY Janet Maslin, The New York Times • People • Entertainment Weekly • O: The Oprah Magazine • Slate • Kansas City Star • USA Today • Christian Science Monitor

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. 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? 

NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY San Francisco Chronicle • St. Louis Post Dispatch • Chicago Tribune • HuffPost • Newsday

“Absorbing . . . In masterly fashion, Flynn depicts the unraveling of a marriage—and of a recession-hit Midwest—by interweaving the wife’s diary entries with the husband’s first-person account.”—New Yorker

“Ms. Flynn writes dark suspense novels that anatomize violence without splashing barrels of blood around the pages . . . Ms. Flynn has much more up her sleeve than a simple missing-person case. As Nick and Amy alternately tell their stories, marriage has never looked so menacing, narrators so unreliable.”—The Wall Street Journal

“The story unfolds in precise and riveting prose . . . even while you know you’re being manipulated, searching for the missing pieces is half the thrill of this wickedly absorbing tale.”—O: The Oprah Magazine

    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.

    I watched the movie several years ago and liked it. I always wanted to read the book. I love reading a book and then watching the movie or vise versa. Boy am I glad that I watched the movie first. Had I read the book and then watched the movie, I would have been extremely disappointed! As always, the book is so much better! The characters are so much more developed and the story is so much more twisted. Excellent read!

    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.

  • Judy L.

    Fantastic book, wonderful narration.

  • Anonymous

    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

  • Pamela J.

    Oh yeah! I almost hated to see this one come to an end. Kept me interested from start to finish!

  • Terri D.

    Gone Girl was an ok read. It was excit8ng in many places! Just not super intense.

  • Kimyan G.

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

  • Tiffany A.

    Loved it! Every bit of it!
