The print version is great and we can read it with our own voices and inflections but having the audible version gives us a chance to hear other interpretations of the story. I love hearing the story being told.
There are so many parts of Gone Girl that are memorable but I guess my most memorable one is the ending because I didn't expect that twist!
Both characters performed their parts well. I don't have a favourite because I think the voices worked well together.
Yes, I often couldn't leave the car because I wanted to keep listening and knew I'd be distracted in my home or work.
You've gotta listen to this!
I enjoyed the twists in the story but the end was quite disappointing. It left Nick being the sap he was in the beginning. I needed Amy to get at least a little back of what she gave.
Saw the movie first without knowing anything about the plot. Couldn't get the storyline out of my head afterward, so I listened to the audio version and Wow! The book was incredible and so much more informative than the movie. The book filled in all the gaps and scenes that were barely mentioned. During the second half, I couldn't stop listening (at 1.25x speed) in the car, at the gym, and eventually at work. Highly recommended!
..like a 70's SNL skit, this story didn't end, it just stopped. I suppose it was written to allow for a sequel. I'm puzzled at all the hype for this story.
This book needed karma. I wanted a big finish to give everyone their due.
One of the most original, smart, disturbing, sickest love stories since....huh, I honestly don't know when I've been so utterly thoroughly engrossed in a book since Stephen King's early years. l listened to the entire book in 2 marathon "dusk to dawn" sessions. The ear buds started to annoy me after a few hours but I was too creeped out to leave the safety of my bed and the comforting sound of my boyfriend snoring next to me. But I honesty thought the ending would be one of those YES!! moments, when justice prevails and the "good guy" wins. Only this story is told, quite brilliantly, through voices that are consistent in their inconsistency. They grab you from page one, these voices, and refuse to give you any time to guess what's waiting around the next corner, before slamming the door in your face and keeping you guessing, and guessing.....and...

After all the hype, I expected a better story. Somehow, I feel like I wasted my time. I am horrified!!!
