What a story! I couldn't stop listening! Gillian's writing is superb...all those intricate details. The more gruesome details were harder to listen to and stuck with me long after the story had mo ed forward. I really felt drawn into the characters in different ways. This is a thriller and pretty deep. Can't go wrong if that's what your looking for.
I listened to "Gone Girl" first, and decided to try this one as well. The characters are engaging, but the plot is much weaker than Gone Girl's, and has a rather unfinished feel. Yes, it's a dark book, as people have mentioned, but I didn't get the same feeling of over-riding evil as I did with Gone Girl. Nevertheless, many images from the book have stayed with me, and I would recommend it.
Bulk of story was needless filler dialog. I skipped thru significant chapters without lots of story knowledge.
Books are a big part of my life. Happiness is a beautiful evening on the houseboat with a good book :)
Couldn't stop listening - snuck in chapters at work and went to sleep still listening. This author does not disappoint! Narration is wonderful.
I really enjoyed listening to this book it was a very good story and I like the way the author writes. It was read very well by the actors. I do wish that the book on audible was cheaper though.
