The first couple of chapters were slow, but necessary to understand the story later on. After that, the story took off and had a lot of twists and turns. Nothing was predictable. I was, however, disappointed in the ending. It was very anticlimactic after such an intriguing story.
The realistic conversations and misunderstandings in communication between married people. Funny and shocking at the same time.
When the other woman was revealed.
I loved the change in tone and perspective when Amy starts being the real Amy.
Laughed out loud.
I keep going back over the story looking for clues and also wondering how the author made up this great plot.
wasted my time thought it would be a great thriller......................only very boring and able to figure out before it was finished.
The last half was hard to stop listening to. I didn't particularly like the ending, which is the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars.
It kept me listening, for sure. I would have been on the edge of my seat if I cared about any of the main characters a little more.
I thought that both of the narrators were superb. I don't think you could have gotten better people for this.
I was downright depressed at the end of this book.
I know this is listed under mystery but it's less about the disappearance and more about the relationship. I think that would have been good to know before starting this.
I do enjoy Flynn's style and the story is good, I was just left wanting to root for either of the main characters. The supporting players, Go especially, I really enjoyed.
The story was unbelievable, the characters were unlikable
I don't think cutting characters would improve the story
This book has a really different story line than you expect. The ending is fantastic, nothing you would think would happen.
This was the first book with two voices that I enjoyed. Most of the time just one voice is enough but in this book it was great.
Yes, the ending!
This story is silly and unbelievable. Let's start there. And the characters are morally reprehensible. Someone has been watching too much CSI. But the WORST is the way the story dragged on in the middle, to the point I was nearly scratching out my eyeballs. Now that I am finished I realize I don't miss the characters, and I didn't learn anything about humanity, nor did I leave with any memories.
This is one of those books that you just want to tell people about - I shared parts of the plotline with my husband. I love that no one is totally right and no one is totally wrong - both spouses are deeply flawed. We really get into their minds. It's interesting how it's possible to misunderstand someone, even a person who we're supposed to know very well.
It did...there was so much second-guessing of a character's motives...even though I had a hint of what happened, when the whole story was revealed the details were incredibly well thought-out. You really catch a glimpse into the mind of a sociopath.
Both narrators did a phenomenal job of enacting Nick and Amy...the nuances of each person's speech were mirrored by the other narrator. They really caught different sides of each character.
Gone Girl...You just think you know her...
Makes me want to find more books by Gillian Flynn. Well done!
Retired autoworker, and photographer! Started to listen to audio books, when I developed cataracts, and never stopped! Love the listen!
I found this story to be so far fetched and improbable that it was difficult for me to finish this book. It just seemed to drag on with details so the author could complete the book.
