Gone Girl

A Novel

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.



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? 

From Publishers Weekly

Mar 26, 2012 – There s the evil you can see coming and then there s Amy Elliott. Superficially, this privileged Gotham golden girl, inspiration for her psychologist-parents bestselling series of children s books, couldn t be further from the disturbingly damaged women of Edgar-finalist Flynn s first two books, Sharp Objects and Dark Places. But as Amy s husband, Nick Dunne, starts to realize after she disappears from their rented mansion in his Missouri hometown on their fifth anniversary and he becomes the prime suspect in her presumed murder underestimating Amy s sick genius and twisted gamesmanship could prove fatal. Then again, charmer Nick may not be quite the corn-fed innocent he initially appears. Flynn masterfully lets this tale of a marriage gone toxically wrong gradually emerge through alternating accounts by Nick and Amy, both unreliable narrators in their own ways. The reader comes to discover their layers of deceit through a process similar to that at work in the imploding relationship. Compulsively readable, creepily unforgettable, this is a must read for any fan of bad girls and good writing.

Customer Reviews


Nobody writes psychopathology better than Gillian Flynn. She has the unique ability to write characters that are truly dislikable in many ways, yet we root for their success while at the same hoping they get their comeuppance.
This is the story of a married couple who seem perfect. The wife goes missing and we learn about betrayals, lies, and maybe even murder.

Great book

Great book, well written and entertaining!

Gone Girl

Couldn't put this story down. Her writing is superb and the character development intense. Just when I thought I knew what was happening - surprise- I didn't. Loved it.
