Avis de l'équipe

The best-selling Gone Girl written by Gillian Flynn and narrated by Julia Whelan and Kirby Heyborne is an audiobook so affecting it will have you looking at the closest members of your family and wondering how well you really know them at all. Now also a major film starring Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike, this is the story of a missing wife, a distraught husband and a web of lies so thick it engulfs an entire community. You will listen wide-eyed and heart-pounding through the night, desperate to know their fate. This is a thriller of incredible depth. Available now from Audible.

Description

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.

Mariage de rêve

Mariage de rêve… peut-être pas entre les protagonistes, mais entre l'histoire et la narration. Kirby Heyborne et Julia Whelan sont d'excellents narrateurs, jamais monotones, jamais lassants. Leurs intonations collent parfaitement à l'état d'esprit du personnage. Le changement de ton entre la première partie et les suivantes, dans le cas de Julia Whelan, est parfait.

Get Gone Girl soon!

Remember the film, War of the Roses with Kathleen Turner and Michael Douglas? Well, this is along similar lines but there are less physical thrills and far more psychological ones which makes for a better read whereas the former, perhaps, makes for more excitable viewing. I found it pretty impossible to "put this book down." It went everywhere with me while I completed my daily tasks and then again late into the night. I had finished it within 3 days but unlike other books I don't want to read another immediately as I would like to 'soak' this book up for a while and think about it. It is very well written and contains some complex ideas which are described in metaphoric symbolism and therefore made easier to understand. I am looking forward to Gillian Flynn writing another excellent book. Very highly recommended.

Not just another whodunit

Without giving the plot away, suffice it to say that Gone Girl isn't just another missing person story, but a psychological thriller that keeps up the suspense to the last page. So don't be put off by the length. I'm left pondering the character of the victim as well as the perpetrator, and wondering what will happoen next. It's one of those books I will read again. With the two antagonists telling their story in the first person, the alternating male and female readers was a must. A top book all round.

Thrilling and Disturbing

I’ve been trying to review this book for a while now and it has become a real struggle. I don’t want to give any spoilers for this brilliant book so I will try my best. Advanced warning: this review may have spoilers or turn out incredible vague. When I first saw this book I kept thinking this was just another YA novel but then I noticed this book kept popping up everywhere so I thought I better read what this is about and when I did, I had to read it right away.

When Amy disappears in suspicious circumstances all eyes fall to her husband as the primary suspect. Nick claims he is innocent but the evidence is not in his favour. Did Nick kill his wife? As this novel progressed any ideas of what happened will be shattered, any presumptions you’ve made about the characters will be wrong. Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn is a dark and twisted journey with so much unpredictability that you will be up all night trying to find out what really happened to Amy.

What I loved about this book was that you never really know what to expect. The book is told from the perspective of Nick and Amy, the diary of Amy tells the back story of their lives while the alternative chapters told from Nick takes the story from the disappearance. Slowly the pieces start to fall into place but there is always another curve ball just around the corner. The dark and psychological aspects of this novel remind me of something Jim Thompson would write but then the thriller and suspense of this book reminds me a lot of books like Before I Go to Sleep or Into the Darkest Corner.

Flynn did a brilliant job with this novel, it kept me up at night, made me want to skip work to read this book and in the end any spare time I had I was back in this book trying to find out what really happened to Amy. I wasn’t sure what I was in for and I didn’t know who to believe but in the end I enjoyed the ride. On reflection this book seemed incredibly basic with its plot but writing in a brilliant way that while reading you never have enough pieces to solve this puzzle. Highly recommend this book to any lovers of mystery and suspense.

Gone girl, lost boy

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Not a favourite by a long shot. Easy to pick the plot from early on and the rest was just filling in the details.

Any additional comments?

Got the book after searching top tens, wish I'd gotten something else. Wasn't very interesting but once I'd started I had to finish to see if anything else popped up. Narraters were fine, just not a fan of the story line.

Twists and turns and a little bit of wow

Get this. Gone girl deserves its best seller status because it is good old fashioned story telling where the journey is just a thrill and ride and the destination a... well, you will see. I felt myself listening without distraction (as I would if reading a book) which for me is the best test of a really good audio book. The narrators both do an excellent job.

Gripping till the very end

A wonderfully written and well performed book. A husband telling the story of his missing wife and the wife revealing their life in her diary. Or so it seems at first... and just then when you feel yourself choosing sides (will you be in the Amy or the Nick camp?) the story takes on an unexpected twist. What looked like a pretty straightforward story now has you guessing - how on earth will it end. So go ahead, listen and hold your breath till the very end.

Intruiging

The story was intriguing. I picked some of the plot points, but not all of them and enjoyed the twists.

The two main characters were both likeable and unlikeable; it was a bizarre feeling to mostly dislike the characters, but want to keep hearing their stories.

The author seems to have no idea what the word "literally" means. More than half the times it's used it's about something that is figurative... if those things were literal it would have been a more horrible and terrifying story. It bugged me so much that I wasn't sure I wanted to keep listening, but I persevered and was glad I did. That is the main reason I didn't give the book 5 stars all around.

End Not too Great

A Page turner, but the ending was disapointing. Pretty flat compared to the rest of the Book

Mittelmäßig, schwaches Ende

The storyline is basically quite interesting. It suggests that both protagonists are very intelligent. Unfortunately that is not the way the speakers come across. To me they sounded very average American. Nothing in their way of speaking implied a broad horizon or a fancy education. So to begin with I found the characters hard to believe in. Also I found that there was a lot of blah blah that slowed down the story, made it a little bit boring and a little bit average. Basically it was a very good story idea but it came to a very sudden and blunt ending as if suddenly the author had run out of ideas on how to continue. I'm kind of hoping there will be a sequel in which a proper ending will developed. The story is really interesting and then suddenly leaves you hanging in midair with an ending that just doesn't make sense.

Absolutely brilliant book!

This book is breathtaking! The biggest dream and the worst nightmare a marriage can get. Gillian Flynn brings the emotions that Nick and Amy feel to life in colors so bright, you'll be afarid of it. Julia Whelan and Kirby Heyborn read their parts with such real emotions that the story comes to life.
Who thought "the war of the Rose's" or "Fatal attraction" were good movies will be thrilled by this book.
