Yes, I would make it faster paced.
Yes, she is a very good writer.
Not at 13 hours.
There is nothing better than a good book!
I really can't get enough of these psychological thrillers! ..... And Gillian Flynn is a MASTER! If you are like me and love those gritty, raw, twisted, crazy, disturbing, horrific, tragic (and so on....) stories- this one should be on your list!
I am a 25 year old male from a small town in Kansas, who is audible obessed!
The accuracy of small town Kansas.
I enjoyed the entire Day family.
The narrators do a good job of gripping your attention.
"Who says nothing exciting happens in Kansas!"
Somehow, I didn't expect such a great story. Its my first experience with Gillian Flynn but I was totally immersed in this intricate and absorbing story and blown away with the conclusion; I didn't see it coming which, for me, is unusual. It was a somewhat harrowing tale and I truly suffered for the characters but it is so true to real life with no pat finish to make the reader feel good. I imagine the author must have suffered somewhat in writing this story. I'll look for future books from this author.
In a few years, sure. The characters are so interesting that I was saddened as the novel ended, since they started to feel like frienemies (too deliciously terrible to be friends). Gillian Flynn's knack for tiny details also make for such interesting, and timely, reading.
Flynn is great with pacing, dropping in twists and details and letting the plot unfurl like a rose opening to reveal a spider in the bud. Even when you've figured out what's going on, you still can enjoy the experience as the narration sweeps you to the frantic climax. So many storylines unfold all at once, in parallel formation, that you're never bored.
The primary narrator imbues such a perfect quality of hostility, reluctant honesty, and self-loathing to the character of Libby that you can't really hate her, even when she admits horrible things. It is the ideal inflection for the character.
I admit, I might have shed a tear toward the end.
If you love horrible, flawed, slightly sociopathic, very narcissistic characters (which I do) you will love this.
I am often disappointed with endings. Sometimes a book is so good I suppose it's not possible to match the greatness of the book with the ending.
I don't know that that is the case with this particular book... but it was a pretty good read/listen. It held my attention, elicited a few chuckles, tickled my curiosity and the story was original.
Gone Girl was my first book from this author and this book is every bit a competitor to 'Gone Girl'. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The suspense was kept until the very last moment and keeps you guessing on the mystery. I am already looking forward to read her other book ''Sharp Objects''.
I probably wouldn't refer it to a friend because it has a very heavy story line. That’s the only reason. It was very well written and read.
Yes. I'm addicted.
I guess I was more into the story because of the multiple narrators than I would be if I was just reading the book.
Definitely. It is a story meant for the big screen.
It is dark. Creepy even. That’s why I only gave two stars. It is a great book, but it was too twisted and it made me feel sad at the end Very, very sad.
I love how the book kept you guessing, trying to figure out who did it and what happened. The more I listened the better it got!!
Well this book was different than my usual read, so I really cant say, but it was a good mystery, crime book!!
The scene where she escaped, really dont want to ruin the story for anyone.
Look forward to reading more like this one.
I would. It is very entertaining and keeps you hanging on the edge of every word.
The real Who Dunnit, tracing the path back to the real murdered.
Great tone and inflection.
At times, I was horrified by the brutal reality.
Absolutely loved it, and I will check out other books by this author.
