I liked it that it was witty and intriguing in the first few chapters.
The ending. I hated the ending so much I felt like I was robbed. Flynn should have written a different ending. Something that would've at least justify the time the readers allot into the book.
They were perfect. They made a big impact on the whole listening experience.
Actually, yes. I think Flynn is positioning the book into being made as a movie. I have a feeling there's a sequel to it because up until now, I still couldn't believe that it ended that way.
I think I was supposed to be surprised by some of the plot lines, but I found many of them predictable. I kept waiting for a real twist. I don't regret using a credit on this book, but I won't be recommending it to others.
I don't know who I would have cast, but the narration is my chief problem with this book. I felt like the narrators read into the characters in a way I didn't agree with -- especially Julia Whelan. She made Amy SO whiny, whereas I think if I had read the book (instead of listened to it) I would have read her as more forceful and conniving.
Also, Whelan's male voices were embarrassingly bad. It made me wish she had just adopted an accent for different characters instead of incredibly awkward attempts to deepen her voice.
Finally, both narrators read very slowly. I understand that this was to be as clear as possible, but there was absolutely no pacing and it really took away from certain tense moments. Again, I wish I had read it instead of listened to it.
Stop picking books based on hype.
The plot was very good but it did get slow at some points.
I appreciated the twist in the plot and the end was very good.
Gone Girl is probably in the top 25 of the books I've listened to and I've listened to several hundred books.
I thoroughly enjoyed both narrators. They had great inflection and I really felt like I was part of the story.
This audiobook was definitely really good, but it ran a little too long for me (I got to a point where I was really sick of it), and I didn't like the end at all. Up until the mid-point it was really good, though.
It keep me wanting to listen.
More realism and excitement. Seemed to define the players more.
It made me keep thinking and creating my own plots.
Certainly would recommend this book to readers.
I came across this audio book randomly.. and I'm incredibly glad I did. Just finished it and I can't believe how good it was. I couldn't stop listening to it! The characters are so well developed, the way it's written is wonderful, always keeping you on your toes and interested and and the readers do terrific jobs with the voices. I would suggest this to anyone who's sick of one dimensional characters and storyline. Definitely worth the credit!!!!
Yes - I found it very interesting and a good story
Just too many to state! Found he was cheating on Amy, Found his wife framed him for her fake death, Amy's numerous schemes all the way to getting pregnant with sperm he gave a while back for fertility treatment she didn't want.
Please don't do this at home!
I loved the story, and the dual narration was done wonderfully--I would highly reccomend!
I wanted to know what would happen with the major characters, esp. the "Gone Girl."
No. The characters were real, but I kept waiting for something to happen. Maybe I needed to hear more but I couldn't bring myself to listen to anymore. It could be because I just finished a very fast paced book before starting Gone Girl, but I don't think so. I waited four days before trying again and I still could not work up any interest. I apologize to the author as I am sure it is a great book if you are into it.
They certainly separate the characters.
Sorry it just didn't cut it for me.
