The narrator is excellent. The book devoid of humor and probably the most depressing story I e ever read. Kat is is a barrel of monkeys by comparison .
Gillian Flynn doesn't disappoint! After listening to Gone Girl, I didn't expect this book to be able to top it. The writing is deep, multi dimensional, and clever. I think Gillian Flynn is my new favorite author!
I absolutely love this book and so far every other book I have read by this author. The ending was fantastic. I thought I had it all figured out. I was wrong.
Honestly if I ever meet Flynn I will just give here a good cuddle. I personally liked the element of most of the characters being female. However about half way in, just struggled with the huge difference between the almost too sugary sweet southernness the characters had and that of the subject matter. Flynn uses the image of these jailed pigs really well, but my god! A sickening but well written book. Flynn doing what she does best.
The performance was alright but the story was a little disturbing there were parts where I had to stop listening for a bit
I enjoy books that are "dark," but I didn't like this book. I expect a Gillian Flynn book to be on the disturbing side. I really enjoyed Dark Places & Gone Girl, but didn't care for Sharp Objects. There aren't any really likeable characters and the story wasn't gripping. This is not an audiobook that I will listen to more than the one time.
I am a retired school counselor (middle and elementary) and an avid reader. I am a lover of great mysteries, quirky protagonists, and medical/scientific non-fiction. I travel a lot and love the freedon audiobooks give me to drive, work, and relax while enjoying a good book. On my ipod I have eclectic musical selections as well as audiobooks. I will strive to never steer you wrong in a review.
This book ranks very close to the top of the list. This is a much better book than Gone Girl and is proof that Ms Flynn is just getting better and better.
There are too many to count. I found myself many times wanting to beg the main character to stop, to think and to walk away.
Ms Lee is an excellent reader. I think her voice, her pacing and the flat affect in her voice are perfect for this character.
This is a compelling book about a character who is not altogether likeable. There are many passages that are difficult to read because the character is in so much pain. Having been a counselor I have seen clients who do the same sef-destructive things over and over, wanting a way out but never managing to break old ways and old habits. I wanted to cry more than once during this book.
