I absolutely love the Unpredictability of the characters and the story.My perceptions and feelings about each of the characters changed every few moments. Refreshing !
Read me a story :)
The plot thickens, the story get even more twisted. I enjoyed every minute of it. The narrators did such a great job bringing the characters to life, it is as if I knew these people, and wanted to relate to them. The ending was a complete surprise. So riveting, it was impossible to put it down.
This is my first book from Gillian Flynn, and already I'm a huge fan. I'll definitely be on the look out for her next book.
I really enjoyed the characters, who are completely unlikable people but very enjoyable in their interplay. Wonderful plot that kept unfolding. Miss it now that I'm done!
I loved that the reader learns to not trust the narrators.
I liked the two character perspective.
I liked this story. I don't want to give anything away but I enjoyed all the twists and turns. If language hangs you up I would stay away, but for me it was really great. Both the male and female narrator were excellent. I am going to download another book by the same author.
Once you start, you won't be able to stop. Gripping, dark, fascinating thriller. Agree with other reviewers about the ending, but that didn't ruin the book for me. Immediately bought her other two novels, which I would recommend as well.
I rarely find women mystery writers that I enjoy, but this book kept me going, and it's a nice long book too. I expected predictability but was surprised over and over. Didn't much care for the ending, though.
Great story - very unpredictable. It kept me reading, although at times I was tempted to quit. I still don't understand why writers feel they need to fill their word count with the f-bomb. This one does it way too much. Totally unneccesary since the overall story is good. If you don't get offended by language, its a good book and I recommend it.
Not a writer, a writer wannabe, editor, lit maj, or pretend literary critic. Just an avid reader and now avid listener. I read at least one book a week and listen to an average of two per week. However, I am a snob and have yet to listen to my favorite novels preferring still to read some works.
I enjoyed this story very much as a good tale and a fine performance. There was a little predictabilty, bit not overmich. There were still a few surprises and twists to make it abetter than average listen.
This story has so many twists and turns. The story had me captivated and on the edge of the bed until 2 am the 2 nights I listened. Couldn't go to bed until I was done. Awesome, awesome story. You will be hooked the moment the book starts! Gillian is there a second book? It could be..... You won't be sorry for this listen!
All the twists in plot. don't want to say too much as you can give things away.
It makes these characters real. Like this could be a real story. Of love, manipulation, and betrayal.
I did pretty much do that very thing.
