The is one of the best books I've read. I couldn't put it down! Very clever, suspenseful and whitty. The book is pretty vulgar and shocking at times. Although the book is dark it made me laugh too. I would recommend it for sure! I liked it so much I picked up her next book, " Dark Places " almost immediately after finishing this one!
Yes, I loved this book. Kept me on my toes!
When I realized that she planned everything and was actually alive.
The ending, period was the least, nothing the best.
I listened to this book for two days straight and made it priority to get to the end because I was that intrigued but once I did I was disappointed. I can't believe I wasted so much time & energy for it to end the way it did.
52 year old electrical engineer with a thirst for knowledge but who is nevertheless easily distracted by a great vicarious escape.
What more do you need to know? Read this book! And I tell you what, I'm a 51 year old guy but this book is not just for 51 year old guys. My 22 year old daughter and I have a bit of a book club thing going. Our taste naturally do no always coincide. But she too loved this book. It's very cleaver, you won't guess what comes next and you will recommend this book to every one you know who loves to read.
Definitely. With the movie in the making, I can put a face on the character.
Part two was the turning point but the ending was unexpected, never see it coming. (Don't wanna give anything away)
I'm usually critical of the narration but this one gets me going. Love them both, they brought the characters to life.
Hope the movie do it justice.
Both the story and the personalities were too twisted for me, and the ending was unsatisfactory. I was enticed by positive reviews to give this a try, and I'm glad I listened. Just can't say I enjoyed it a lot. Kept waiting for the ultimate clever twist, which didn't happen.
New to this audio book thing
Yes, most definitely. I'm not much of a murder mystery girl but Ms. Flynn has elevated this genera with such a eloquently and classily written novel. I was hooked in only a few minutes. The twists were jaw dropping. Interesting and entertaining.
The different voices that were used to tell the story.
They flowed as if truly unscripted.
This book was so captivating, and such a mind-f**k. I loved the husband, then the wife, then no one, and then both of them again in a chilling fearful way. Like I wasn't supposed to love them, but I couldn't help it. They are just AMAZING. For those of you who've read/listened this book, or about to read/listen to this book... you'll understand... and you'll understand what AMAZING really is.
If you can take a break for this book, I envy you. I sat completely captivated, and sick to my stomach with anticipation.
The narration was great, but the story moved slowly and wasn't very gripping. I turned it off after a couple hours.
It depends. The twists and turns weren't all that surprising. My main problem with the book was I didn't like any of the characters so I didn't care about any of them. The wriiting was compelling enough that I listened to the whole book, but this was not a favorite.
