Narrators were fantastic, and I didn't want the story to end. The only downside for me: there was a lot of bad language so I couldn't listen to it when my kids were around. I would highly recommend this audiobook!!
Spoiler! When the shift occurs in Part Two and it's revealed that Amy's diary up to that point has been a fake, I got chills in the way narrator, Julia Whalen's voice changed. I loved the book and Gillian Flynn definitely deserves the credit for her writing, but the audio book added a whole new element to the story.
It would have taken an awful lot to make me give this even a 3 star rating.
The whole thing was boring, predictable, and very uninspiring. I would have requested a refund, but why bother, at least it was mindless white noise.
No, probably not.
The readers were fine. It was the words they read that undid the whole performance.
The whole book
Don't waste your time.
This book was above my expectations. I didn't think ill like listening to a book but I got hook to it. I was listening in the car whenever I had free time and it kept me on my toes. I'm going to continue using audible.
I listened to this after so many people claimed the book was better than the movie. I beg to different. While the writing itself is very descriptive, it's almost too descriptive. The writer takes wayyyyy too long to go into detail about points that aren't even really points. The words are very dreamy and I don't know very many people in this era that speak that way. Overall, it is a terrific plot. The narration is silly and too dramatic at times. The voices and exclamations are cheesy.
I finished it completely and am glad that I did, but I still think the movie was much better.
