this book has to be one of the most twisted books i have ever read (or listened to) if not THE most! it was well written and the performances were outstanding! thank you gillian flynn for an amazing book!!!!
This book is straight up crazy! I can't say much without giving away the ending. Lot has so many twists and turns that my head was spinning.
I'm an outlier in this sentiment. I know there are plenty of people who love this book. I didn't enjoy this book. If you love murder mysteries, I would still recommend this book. Here are my thoughts anyway... By design, the book made me hate the characters. This is intentional; however, they're so awful and just plain stupid that its hard to feel any sympathy. A lot of the story's plot seems very implausible too. How could all of it possibly be planned?
I wasn't sure I would even finish this story. It took until almost half way through for it to become interesting, then had an un-smart piece that led another direction and ultimately felt completely unsatisfying in the end. Narration for the male part seemed too level; female part just annoyed me. I wouldn't recommend someone spend this much time on this story.
loved the story. scary thoughts. Nick was completely amazing and Amy was remarkable . Wow is not enough. can't imagine what Nick is going to do for next 18 yrs!!!!
Ok. So for the whole book I was glued to my seat. My iPad came with me everywhere I went, and I rarely turned off the book, usually only to sleep. I finished it in two days. There were so many twists and turns, I never knew what was going to happen or what was coming next. The last two chapters (15 minutes listening) were completely anticlimactic and seemed just wrong to me to end a book like that. All that build up through the whole book and then that??? Ugh. So that's why it gets four stars and not five. I thought the readers were phenomenal. They fit the characters perfectly.
