The book starts out slow and starts to pick up on the day of her missing.
You end up not really liking the husband and then not really liking the wife.. I haven't read many books that get you to dislike the characters
The book did have an excellent twist to it but I just wasn't satisfied with the ending..
I was going to give the book a 3 but I gave it a 4 because it does get you hooked in wanting to find out and had good twists, like I said, but still :/ iffy about the ending
First I started reading this book, and the way that it was written, it didn't really pull me in. I read the first couple of pages and I put it down. Then someone was talking about it at work and I thought I would give it another try. So I downloaded the audio book and I couldn't stop listening to it.......because I couldn't wait to find out when Nick would grow a pair and Amy would get what she deserved.
I just think that it seemed so unreal that someone could get away with something like that. I mean I know it's a story and it's Fiction and it fantasy, but COME ON! No one can do that much planning and remember every little detail and not fub up once! She just kept pissing me off! In the works of Nick..."the F*&^%$g B(h!!
I didn't love it but I didn't hate it, but the Author did do a good job at keeping me listening
I could not stop listening to this book, I was addicted to it. The story twists and turns so many times. I loved the characters! Great writing and fun book to listen to.
The narrators were perfect for the story! Both the male and female narrators were very understandable and the emotion was superb!
The format of the story was very unique and kept me listening outside of my car!
When you really find out how craze Amy is, you just want her to mess up!
The ending of the story was a bit flat, but not sure how it could have ended differently.
Amazing plot twists
Amy. Because she is amazing.
They were some of the best narrators I have heard. They are perfect for the tone of the novel.
YES!! I can't wait to have the opportunity to listen - it consumes you.
If you like dark books, you will love this.
My reviews are honest. No sugar coating here.
By popular demand, I finally finished "Gone Girl." Like someone who cannot get enough of chocolate and who keeps going back to the candy jar, I don't like sweets, but sometimes, I like a piece of pie. The best way that I can describe this novel is like a piece of pie. You start with a bite and as soon as you know it, you have a mouthful of sweets.
I couldn't devour the story all at once because this is not my typical read, but as I got more into the story and got more into the characters, I started enjoying the book and started remembering where I left off even after days of not listening. I'm really glad that Gillian Flynn is not a sloppy writer because the story of Nick and Amy and their marriage could had gone south really fast and I would be dreading to finish the book. I found Flynn's writing to be tight and was written well for this genre.
The ending is what I expected. It's a bit weak from where the story first started, but it was satisfying that the story came to a closed. I just wished that there were more about his twin sister, Go. Her character just faded away as I read deeper in the book.
Just wondering where the author got her inspiration of the manuscript for the book. This is why I have yet to be married. You never know who you are with. Just ask your friends who are divorce.
How many times have you heard this? "My ex is crazy."
I think I would, but I would pay close attention to the reviews and people's feelings about the ending.
It was definitely too long in places. There are several scenes that could have easily been excluded.
I loved hearing them act out the voices, not only of their own character, but of the people their characters interacted with. They did a great job,
Commit murder, perhaps? No, nothing.
It did hook me once I got past the first part...it was almost enough to make me return it. The ending didn't do it for me at all.
A better ending and of course much shorter first section.
First time hearing either of them - great job. Kirby's dad voice was almost too much.
No, they would try to make this a real happy ending and it would flop.
Just your average bookworm.. love reading books physically, but with work and school, audiobooks are a great alternative. I host a book club, and I few of us are avid listeners. I listen while I clean, drive, and workout. Great hobby!
insane twisted must-read
I have no idea... I've heard her other books are much darker... I like that this one was intriguing and it was a great discussion at book club. I love recommending it... I never doubt people won't have SOME strong comment about my recommendation... which is the highest compliment.
If I had to pick? Nick. You end up hating both. which is the best part about the book.
happily ever after isn't always pretty. or normal.
such a good story, and great narrators. I love when books have multiple narrators. I found myself just standing in the yard once, staring, with my jaw on the ground... when I was suppose to be raking.
I wanted to choke the mess out of the female lead at the end of this story. I didn't see it coming, but talk about a text book sociopath!
I don't think there is a comparison. Gillian Flynn is a very unique author.
The stranger you know....
