This book is full of crazy people and that is what makes it so good. Love the different readers for the characters. couldn't stop listening.
Overall, I enjoyed this story despite being a bit disappointed with the ending. Having a male and female narrator enhanced the story.
Stick with it. This one has plenty of surprises, some pleasant. Drudge through the idiocy of the husband in the first part for some lovely curves in the story.
This was my first book by this author, and I really enjoyed it. Look forward to listening to the authors other books!
I would recommend this book. Even when I thought I knew what was happening, I had to know HOW, and if I was RIGHT, and what everyone involved would THINK and SAY and DO to make it happen or in reaction once it did. I didn't like anyone in this book, but I was completely intrigued by the way they became what they were and why they were letting each other RUIN them. I quite literally could not stop until it ended, until I knew. And at the end I was still disappointed with how ruinous the whole thing was. Yes, these characters are far-fetched. That's what made it so wonderful and escapist for me.
My closest comparison would be wit House of Sand and Fog, since I despised everyone in that book too, but couldn't put it down until everyone was satisfactorily destroyed.
Yes, although I have no idea how the narrators kept themselves from speeding up intensely as things got so twisted...
Like Watching a Train Wreck...You Won't Look Away.
Retired high tech CEO who raised quarter horses, pilots his own Bonanza A36 airplane, enjoys shooting sports and spending time with his lovely wife and family
It's a novel novel, and one you will likely remember. Different is too plain a word to describe this married couple. As many have learned from first hand experience, seeking perfection can create some very insidious imperfections. If you can be entertained by becoming and remaining frustrated, this could be one of your favorites. Book clubs and amateur Psychiatrists should love having this raw meat to chew on!
No I won't listen again. I don't like repeats.
No other book I can compare it to.
The last scene was totally unexpected.
I was shocked by the ending and would of never believe it. I was expecting other outcomes but not the one the book ended with.
Really fun to listen to.
It was the slowest moving novel I have read in years and it drags on iseemingly interminably.
With better material.
Work at home mom, who loves to listen while she works!
DON'T buy this book.
NO. Well that's not completely fair. I won't SEEK out a book by Gillian Flynn again.
I was bored. ONLY got about 1/4 way through.
Captivating story, many twists and turns. I didn't like the narration. Really slow reading and voices used were not believable.
