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.

Keep going with this

When I started listening I thought I had made a mistake - I didn't like the voice of the man, the aggressive tone and the bad language,but I always think it worth persevering for a while and I'm glad I did. It's one of the those books that might take a bit of getting into, but once the characters were established and the book began to deal with the disappearance of Amy the feel of it changed and it became absorbing. So I would recommend - and if you start listening and have some doubts, keep going you will enjoy it.

A bit of a struggle

Although this book is clearly well written, the characters are so unlikeable that I really struggled to finish it. I suspect that if I was reading it rather than listening to it I may very well have given up. The narrators are good, though I like Amy's voice better than Nick's so there was a jolt every time they switched while I got used to the voice again. If you like psychological thrillers then I wouldn't want to put you off altogether - as I said - it is well written,I just found that because I wasn't routing for one of the characters the plot wasn't enough to hold me.
