i shouldv left gone girl for last, after that this 1 was kind of a let down. at the end i realized i had figured it all out half way through, but i thought "nahh..thats 2 obvious/cant be/theres gotta be a good twist coming". oh well - still a good read tho & loved the performance, just dont expect it 2 be better than or even as good as gone girl (if u havent read that 1, def save it).
Well written murder mystery starring on of Gillian Flynn's infamous messed up characters. The story is a little on the predictable side and sometimes Flynn's similes are over the top, but a great way to pass the daily commute.
Absolutely!! I almost stayed up through the night just to finish this book. I did finish it in less than 24 hours. I love her writing. I crave it.
Great book...just like others Gillian Flynn has written. I'm going for Dark Places next...I've listened to this one and Gone Girl and was not disappointed with either. Only reason I gave it four stars was it started out a little slow, was difficult to keep going, but glad I stuck with it.
It's homey feeling...small town, which I can relate to because I used to live in one and work in one now.
I think this was the first. She is great narrator, keeps you interested...doesn't make you fall into a coma.
At the end yes, for last 5-7 chapters...I ended up listening to it at my desk at work because it was getting so good.
This book is entertaining enough but I figured out what was going on pretty early. I enjoyed Gone Girl more-- but I will say I was neutral on the book but loved the movie so maybe I'm just not a huge fan of the author?
I found the story to be transparent from the very begininning. The voice provided for the teenage daughter were over exaggerated to the point of annoyance.
Overall, disappointed with this and would not recommend, especially if you liked Dark Places, which was much more suspenseful.
This read seemed more suited for teenagers verses the adult reader population.
The story was strange in places and it felt contrived. The sex was overly descriptive for my tastes. The character of Ana could have been better even though it does come together at the end. Maybe it was the voiced used for Ana, but her character wasn't very believable.
