I didn't buy the print version, so I wouldn't know, but I must admit the people telling the story was just perfect.
Yes, you had to wait until the very end to get the truth, I liked how it told each person's story, bounced from one person's life to another with different voices.
No I haven't, but I plan on it since I am now a huge fan of all the narrator's.
It just kept me hooked, I always wanted to know more, this was my second audio book, the first book I bought, I didn't like the narrator, I almost have up on audio books, but then I gave this one a chance, and boy oh boy I'm glad I did. I almost didn't want to book to end, I just fell in love with each of the characters, it kept me emotionally involved with each character.
I must admit I almost didn't like the gloomy way the narrator's voice was, but I bumped up the speed to 1.25 and found it much more enjoyable. Then when I understood why her voice wad so gloomy, then I was able to switch back to normal speed. This book sold me on audio books. I had previously never liked anyone reading too me, ever. I just liked reading to myself. Now I like audio books, and this book will now be in my list of best books ever. I hope you give it a chance as well, don't give up on it so quickly, it really is a good story.
man this book is so fucking dark you can't see it in a room full of sun shine. the things people do when they are at the end of their rope. I think this might be better than Gone Girl.
i really enjoyed gone girl so i thought i would enjoy dark places as well. the story was a little too dark for my taste and i got uncomfortable with the story often.
If you liked Gone Girl, you will love this nail biting thriller that will keep you wanting more.
Author once again keeps you guessing until the very end and does not disappoint!
I really wanted to like this book but it was so slow moving that I often found my thoughts wandering and snapped back to realize I hadn't missed anything pertinent. Like many readers I enjoyed Gone Girl and hoped for something similar. Unfortunately I had figured out the ending (not claiming to be a super sleuth, it was obvious) hours before it was revealed. Also, the book just stopped. No tidy bow, just an ending with no satisfaction for the reader. Bummer.
Great work of contemporary fiction! I'm glad I looked past the recent hype of Gone Girl to take a listen. Reading of the scenes seemed a bit cheesy at times but, overall, wonderful performance. You won't want to stop listening.
I normally read, but I've been working a lot and I had to catch up. So I grabbed the audiobook. And! I really enjoyed it. The narration was good and I liked that they switched voices for each of the character chapters. I can definitely say I enjoyed Dark Places much more than Gone girl (book). It moved faster and kept you guessing. Flynn does a great job of creating these really authentic characters. I like that she doesn't add sugar to them, she plays them out, as is, nice gritty. It was a book full of all those things you think, but never say out loud. Our bookclub really enjoyed this one and I recommend it, if you're a fan of Gillian Flynn.
