It was a mistake to listen to this after A Casual Vacancy. So many unlikeable people in this one too! I had hoped for more intrigue or mystery or something - this book just wasn't my cup of tea. I figured it all out pretty early on and then just kept waiting for something surprising to happen. That being said, Gillian Flynn really created a complete world and cast - everyone is clear as a bell and very real, I just didn't like those people at all and didn't want to spend any time with them.
If you enjoy books where there's someone to root for, this is not it.
The narrators were really excellent, though.
An active chick, an AT thru hiker (2012), and someone who will never stop exploring!
I'd heard so many vague "that's a great book" reviews of Gone Girl that I decided to download it as my first book on audible.com and I cannot say I was disappointed! I feel the story line, though predictable at times, really kept twisting and turning to draw you deeper and deeper into the world of the two main characters. When the plot twists came, some of them didn't surprise me at all while others really threw me for a loop. I enjoyed the book and I would recommend it to any of my friends who enjoy true crime books or just plain page-turners.
Very Blah, do not like his style at all. Not much of story, vey lame
Covert spy & crime thrillers with lone heroes. Lots of action, start to end. Bad endings = bad book. Love Jack Reacher & Nathan McBride!!
To many unneeded F bombs. They are too distracting.
Robert Ludlum Covert One.
The narration was good. Easy to tell who was talking. They should do more
The differing time stamps for diary entries was clever.
The story had my attention from the very first sentence to the final one.
I had not.
Crazy KNOWS crazy
I loved the narration. I felt like they were telling their story instead of reading the story.
I loved the twists and turns. There was a portion that I found a bit boring and that part could have been shortened. And I didn't like the ending. Not that the ending was bad at all, it was just that I wanted something different to happen. I like that you are taken for a ride on which character you like better - Amy . . . Nick . . . Amy . . . Nick . . . Nick . . . oh brother, they are both nuts! Loved it!
Dark, twisted, genius
Spoiler - The shock of finding out the truth about Amy
The male narrator's female voice was not very good and the female's Nick voice was not very good.
The entire book moved me. It is so dark and twisted. The author is a genius!
I loved, loved, loved the way the book was written, the story, the suspense, and the overall story. It is very interesting the emotions you go through reading this book.
I actually wasn't too optimistic about this book, but I was pleasantly surprised. The story telling is awesome and the twists and turns are remarkable. I even suggested this to friends who don't read or listen to novels and they loved it. You wanna listen to a twisted, suspense thriller of a book....yea add this to your cart immediately....
A hilarious surprise!
No. This was my first listen.
Not really. But I loved this book.
Mystery, history, & technology are what I like to read, even better if they are inter connected. I will love a book and get lost in it or hate it and never make it all the way through. I love getting so into a book that is feels it's actually happening in my life and at the end feel a void I need to fill with another good book.
I really liked the suspense but most of all the gripping emotions you felt for each character throughout the book.
I enjoyed Julia and Kirby's performance, I felt as though the characters were telling the story themselves rather than the book being narrated to me.
Yes but I don't want to spoil it, you'll know when you get there and you'll want to call the closest person you know who has read it to discuss.
Anytime I read a book and want to call other people who read it, or tell other people about what is going on in the story, or feel sad when I finish it, I know its a great book.
The search is on to fulfill my next good read.
