The Narrator, Ann Marie Lee was great. I really liked how she performed the voices of the male characters. She would change the gruffness of her voice without trying to make her voice too low. A lot of other female narrators try to make their voices too low for the male characters and it is annoying and distracting. So, the narration was excellent.
The book: I was so bored. The main character was whiny, depressed and not that interesting, and the support characters we uninteresting and annoying as well.
You might enjoy this book if you find gossiping house wives from the Midwest interesting.
I couldn't turn it off because I wanted to know who the killer was, so it was well enough written to keep my attention even though I disliked all of the characters.
If you're into darker books, this one is perfect for you. It has a depressing tone but we still root for the main character. If you're sick of plain and boring books, this one is sure to shake things up.
Very dark story. Difficult to listen to at some parts. Despite that, it was a good mystery and didn't drag anywhere. The ending was a little predictable I thought, but still good.
The story flowed well and it was not a boring tale. It was a bit too predictable
I'd tell them it is OK but not the best I've listened to recently.
Hard to say. Nothing stands out as wow that part was really great.
No, I don't see many movies
I will read more of Gillian Flynn's novels. This did not sour me to her writing. I've heard others are really good.
I definitely would recommend this book to others! I found it hard to turn off at times! Having said that, I felt as though some of the characters evolved from their original personas, and the storyline just didn't tie together as I think it should have. I love GF and it's obvious that this was one of her first novels, yet it's still pretty damn genius!!
This is 3rd book by her that I've read so I knew it was going to be a grizzly story. The depraved areas of the human psyche is where she likes to take me. I have to be on the mood to go there. Characters are well developed. Narration was a bit too sweet but maybe that's what kept me listening to the end. I was able to figure out ending for the first time reading Flynn novels.
I loved reading and listening to this book. I felt a very strong connection to the main character (Camile). Just a well written (well read) story.
love the story from the perspective of the daughter. Seem to end very abruptly, which I am not sure is good or bad.... it just didn't seem to go with the rest of the book. overall, it is a great book.
Once again Gillian Flynn finds a way to suck me into a murder mystery. Loved this story! And the voice of the narrator has a nice liquid sound that I appreciate!
