I loved "Gone Girl" but this story left me wishing that the ending would be a nuclear warhead being dropped on Wingap, MO and incinerating everything and everyone there. It is well written and performed well here on audible but it is very dark; too dark for my tastes. I need a good comedy after that to cleanse my mental palate.
Thats the only word I can use to describe this book. I did not like any of the main characters. Had no empathy for Camille and totally disliked Amma. Now on to find lighter reading material .
The story had me from the start. Ive had trouble finding a book that can do that for awhile now but this one wouldn't allow me to wonder off. Had to keep listening. I won't spoil the story for anyone with too much said here, just know the narration is AAA+ and the story itself is a hell of a ride! You won't regret using a credit on this! If you've listened to Gillian Flynn you know she delivers!
Yes, because I'm awesome, and the book is awesome; so it's a natural fit.
Definitely did not see the the pulled teeth question being answered like that at the end. Jesus...
Anger, because I was listening to it while mowing and got so distracted that I ran over a sprinkler head, jacking up the blade.
Great book. 2nd best Flynn book next to Dark Places.
You knew where the story was going long before the end and it left me feeling miserable and sick with negativity towards humanity. If you are purposely looking to be absolutely miserable from beginning to end then by all means read this. Please don't read my review and get accidentally curious on what the contents of this story contain. It's boring and completely predictable. Pleaseeeee spare yourself the boring, predictable empty sadness this book will illicit. I expected some mystery in the story and wanted to enjoy the read, but no such luck here.
Its a fascinating tale that would begin on may 5th, 1989 in Mease Dunedin hospital and from there the legacy grew. I am adult now.
Love the narration love the story direction there were characters that I loved and hated. I enjoyed the book immensely it really cut to the core.
This draws you in right from the beginning. It's completely disturbing on so many levels. I can't get enough of Gillian Flynn's work. Ann Marie Lee's performance was top notch.
All of the unexpected plot twists and turns. I kept thinking I had it figured out and then another plot twist would pop up, each more interesting than the last. The ending was mind blowing. Definitely an edge of your seat seat kind of book. I've listened to and read all of her books but this by far was my favorite. I really hope they make a movie out of this one.
I loved the intensity of it,I couldn't stop listening. While in the car, doing housework, laying in bed, I literally could not tear myself away until the end. Too many good things to say about this to fit into a review, but trust me and just get it. You won't be sorry.
Camille. I identify with her in the aspects of her personal issues & I've read other books that deal with the topic but those books made the problems the main focus of the story while this book expertly weaved it into the story showing how it affects you & your daily life but without that being the sole focus of the book.
Several parts,I don't want to give anything away for people who haven't read it so I'll just say that there was definitely more than one part that really moved me.
Just get it! I have nothing bad to say about this,the story was amazing, the narrartor was perfect and it's such an intense story that its guaranteed to haunt you in a good way for long after you're finished with it.
