Much better ending
Last scene - actually all from the time she returned
Foul language was unnecessary.
Well written mystery
Telling his story in bar
I realized this could be any couple not really knowing each other
Yes, it was entertaining and distracting from my life. Which is what I'm currently looking for in a book.
Even after reading reviews to decide if I wanted to listen to this book and knowing there was a lot of twists and turns, they still took me by surprise. I found myself stopping mid-cleaning task to look in astonishment at my computer. Often this was accompanied by a statement of something like 'wow, and I thought my life sucked right now'.
Good narration is best appreciated after you have experience bad narration. Like having a good boss after bad ones. These two do a pretty good job and I felt they were true to the characters as I pictured them.
Mostly I just couldn't decide if I wanted particular people to read it or if I thought it might give them ideas they had not previously considered. And that made me think I might be getting too suspicious of humans in general.
I kept wanting to like this book because of the rave reviews from other authors I respect. But instead I took a very strong disliking to the story. I found it to be hateful and despicable. I could not sympathize at all with the whiney self-centered characters.
Make no mistake: this is a story about hate. The happy ending is absurd.
Amy. She was the most complex and interesting.
I liked having the main characters read by their gender. Both performers did an excellent job portraying the characters.
I was surprised by most of the twists in the plot. It really kept me guessing.
An unusual story that was fun to listen to.
It was so suspenseful and I would constantly be fooled and want to know more about the characters. I don't want to spoil it but I liked the ending the least. I almost felt like I wished I hadn't listened to it because of the ending but that is taking nothing away from the story.
None. This was such a clever book and the author had a unique way of telling the story.
I liked Nick and the way he came to realize things about himself. I was very sympathetic to his character. On the other hand, the narrator for Amy was excellent and I loved listening to her.
No, although I could hardly stop listening to the book, which is a sign of a good author and excellent narrators, I felt terrible after I read it.
This one's a keeper. No wonder it's been on the best seller list so long! I was totally hooked, twisted around, compelled to keep listening. The readers were perfect; the story was original, and the writing was exceptional. I was sorry to hear it end.
This book had me at every page. I thouroughly enjoyed the story and the unexpected turns and at times even found myself rooting for the most unlikey character. The narrators were great and the content itself was intrigueing. However, the ending sucked ass!!! i mean it was like the author just gave up. Not how i would of like to see it end, it kinda leaves you hanging, thinking wow, i just wasted 12 hours of my life for what? A great story anyways and worth the read even with the crappy ending.
no first time, because of the lazy ending i will prolly skip her others.
Yes,Because it was entertaining from beginning to end
I cant think of a comparison, but there is a little Rhett and Scarlett in the characters...
Thought they embodied the characters well
And you thought your marriage was "F"ed up... or
A match made in heaven
I loved this book, it was entertaining, frustrating, satisfying. You could guess what was going to happen next many times in the story but it was still rewarding when it happened that way. The most disturbing thing is when I thought about what might happen next and realized I was thinking like the characters. I dont easily give 5 stars and I did not give it 5 stars for the brilliant writing but rather for the fact that I was entertained from beginning to end. I really liked the ending too.
YES! Let me start by saying that I get the hype for Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn and why it's getting so much attention, both on the sales charts and in the media. We have all heard those stories where the wife goes missing and the husband is the suspect. Gillian Flynn's psychological thriller is so well written and hard to put down, but now with that said I have to say I hated every single person in the book, but never enough to give up on the book. I did want to write my own book where everyone dies and I know that sounds creepy, but if you read it you'll understand. Don’t jump to conclusions that this is a horrible book, because it’s not I just never felt like I had a hero and someone I could side with. I find myself talking about this book a lot and the best way I can sum it up is dark and twisted and something you really have to experience for yourself. Julia Whelan and Kirby Heyborne did a great job as narrators of the audio book. I knew Kirby would be great because he is the narrator for Breadcrumbs, which is one of my favorite audio books. Julia also did a great job I would gladly listen to other books she reads. I need to read a lot of happy books before I pick up another book by Gillian Flynn.
