My work prevents me from sitting and reading a good book, but Audible gave me that back!
I tried to keep an open mind as I read the book and certainly was looking forward to the "spectacular ending" I read about in all the reviews. Also, I heard a lot of "you won't believe what happens at the end" comment from my friends so you can imagine how much anticipation I had as I began reading. With that said, however, I must admit that I was left a little bit disappointed. Although the entire book was very entertaining and it certainly was exciting to read the intricate details that the character Amy thought up in order to disseminate her husband, I would've been much happier if Amy had truly been "gone girl" at the final page. Still and all, a fantastic book!
I was fooled.
Yes, don't want to give anything away... I'll just say, the second half of the book was a surprise.
I may have. Julia's voice was familiar to me... They both did a fine job. It was nice having the female and male characters voiced separately.
Laughed? Yep. Cried not really but my jaw dropped several times! I also found myself jumping from one "team" to the other frequently.
The first half of the book made me wonder if it was going to be the same old story. It felt ordinary... but now I see what the writer was doing. Clever.
I figured out the twist etc fairly early on. Wasn't really interested after 3/4 of the way through which is odd for me I could piece together enough and that was good for me. I finished it though and didn't care for the ending
Performance wise. The male narrator was great. The female one was okay until she did a guy's voice then it was off putting.
A twisted tale of love and deceit. If you love crime thrillers and tragic love stories, then this is the book for you! The twists and turns in this novel are wonderfully constructed. The ending was appropriate and just. Here's hoping the movie measures up! Sometimes they do?!
I wouldn't know, as I didn't try to read the print version of the book. In fact, I've only listened to all of Gillian Flynn's novels and haven't attempted reading any of them.
Well, considering I don't want to ruin anything for anyone, the twists in this plot are ridiculous. Nick and Amy's story is captivating and darkly twisted. The narrators were AMAZING.
No, but not because it wasn't amazing! I couldn't listen to it all in one sitting because after some of the plot twists, I just needed to take a break.
SUCH a good book, though I personally abhorred the ending. Gillian Flynn has a gift, I didn't know whether to love or hate Nick, and Amy was amazing.
That moment when you realize what is really going on... is shocking to say the least.
Wasn't keen on the voice of "Nick" but loved the voice of "Amy". It was very well read...
