Violent youths, back stories, teeth
The description of the main character and how she would cut herself.
Every small town has its skeletons.
Brilliant story line. You never expect who the killer is.
I've also read Gone Girl by the same author. It's also set in the Midwest.
Libby and Ben Day were both great performances
I have never read the print version book.
My favorite character was Lionel; his personality was very well developed and even though the story didn't really touch on him or his past, I got a good sense of what type of person he is.
Hearing Libby's contempt and sense of rage in the voice definitely added something.
Best one I have listened to yet.
Libby was my favorite. She is dark, cynical, and almost unlikeable, yet you end up rooting for her.
I don't think that one particular scene was my favoritem but the best part is when the present narration meets the past narration.
When Libby reconncted with her aunt in the end as well as when she read the note left from her mother.
I wanted to like this story...could not get past the fact that the narrator was not pleasant to listen to.
I will probably not continue my Audible subscription...I don't want to risk being disappointed with the narrator and risk not enjoying the book.
Yes, this was one of the best books I heard in a LONG time! It kept me eager to get back in my car for my commute every day to find out what happened!
I never figured it out until the author unfolded it!! I love suspense thrillers where I want to keep reading/listening to know what happened without having figured it all out by the first chapter.
I loved the emotion in the narrator that did Patty Day. I could see her woeful face and looks...
The ending had me literally driving down the interstate with my mouth gaped open! It ended by tying up all the loose ends and was a fantastic twist!!
I'm on my third book by Gillian Flynn - if you like suspense/crime thrillers, you will L O V E her!!
emotionally complex characters
Yes, I had it figured out about ten different times..was always wrong....
Everybody has them.....
I loved this book! Snapped it up after falling in love with Flynn (along with the rest of the world) upon reading GONE GIRL. I loved the multi-narrator format, the story, all of it.
I think I might. The story is well-written and semi-capturing but for some reason I don't feel like I really get to know the characters. Lacks a bit of depth.
This book was so good. I haven't got the words to say how good. I read her other book "gone girl " first and was sure there was no topping it, but I was wrong! Two other coworkers and I listened to it together, and it made every surprising turn that much more fun. We all loved it. The reader is top of the line. Probably best I have heard yet.
