It's hard to write about the book without spoiling it. This book is a fantastic mystery with many twists and turns. It is thoughtfully crafted and smartly designed. I couldn't stop listening. This book held my attention right up to the last line, where I felt like I was left hanging. I wanted the story to keep going; it felt unfinished. That being said, it is a great story and worth a read/listen.
I LOVED this book! The narration was superb and the characters so "crazy"! Fantastic story line, intense and entertaining....can't wait to listen to another Gillian Flynn!
I am often hesitant of woman mystery writers because often they are a bit soap operaish and to nice. Boy Did Gillian Flynn blow that view apart. First let me say the prose is amazing. If you've ever had a long relationship that desolves you'd think she was often speaking just to you. Her imagery is also incredible and makes everything seem so real and personal. Then there is the story. Wow. Amazing. A book you'll carry around a long time. Readers are also fantastic. Story takes a little bit to hook you then not even therapy can keep you away from the train wreck. Great listen.
This is a book about very sick people. I guess there are those who would point out that yes, well perhaps all of us are a a little "sick" but the characters in this book are personifications of the worst characteristics people can embody. There is no "good guy" in this book .. only "bad guys" and "bad gals" plus enablers and embellishers and on and on and on. About the time I was getting bored .. about 1/3 of the way through, there was a dramatic change and I thought "okay, now it will get better." Wrong. It never got better, but only worse and worse.
My friend told me she read about a third of the way, got tired of the dysfunction and just read the ending. I switched to double time, finally finished it and feel like I wasted my valuable time.
I can't think of a single redeeming feature of Gone Girl .. except that it finally ended and Audible will give me a refund!
The best ever and I have been listening to audiobooks for years. I love this book.
Even when I thought I knew what was going on, I didn't. And that her characters are not good or evil but somewhere in between.
I can't say that either was a favorite as far as their characters, though the narrators were excellent. They made it so real that it felt like I watched the movie in my head.
Maybe not moved me, but shocked me. I had no idea Amy was still alive.
Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, and today is a gift that's why it's called the present
I liked the way it bounced back and forth between the characters. I also liked the way you believed he may have killed her
When he discovered the garage was full of things she purchased. He knew he was @&$*^. And when he began to think smartly to turn his situation around.
Same name. Gone Girl
intriguing, dark, surprising
When Nick is about to appear on Sharon's show and they are both surprised to find out Andie has gone public.
Love gone terribly wrong.
I loved the fact that, although I thought I had the book figured out at the halfway point, Gillian was able to keep me interested enough to keep going.
The rich characters and the never ending depths to which they went to.
Nick. At lease to his core he wasn't evil...he could be redeemed. Amy is just evil in the flesh. She was sick sick sick.
Kirby playing Amy. He caught her voice and personality well.
Be careful what you wish for...just might just get it.
A really god story. Totally different from anything you would expect, and with more twists and turns than a maze.
The story kept twisting and turning. Every time I thought I was going to be bored, it changed again.
