I loved how the story grabbed me an would not let me go, it was one of those stories that you just could not put down. I loved the twist and turns.
I havent listened to anything that I could compare it to.
Not sure that I could pick just one, and I dont want to give anything away. You just must listen.
Yes, I didnt want to put it down. I had my ear pods in at work and found myself holding up my finger to people to wait.
This is a must listen! Totally worth the credit or pay for it outright...it's that good. I highly recommend it, its one of those stories that totally sucks you in...Great Book.
Don't know. Haven't read the print version. The performance, however, was marvelous.
The psychological angles and unexpected turns.
Their own interpretation of the text, I assume.
Neither. I thought it was an intelligent and entertaining book, well written and well read. I was surprised and pleased with the insights into the relationships and personalities of the characters, and thought it a grabbing, smart, and very pleasurable book.
This book started out very slow and the middle was the best. You kept on listening and hoping that it would have a great ending. The ending just left you hanging.
Absolutely. There are so many angles and nuances to this book. I just finished and I know I will spend days thinking about this story. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE books like that. That it's a very giving story, not just one angle, good or bad. It's like life - there's everyone's version of the story and the story you side will be the one most like yourself, except beware when you begin to side with the devil. There is no simple way to capture marriage and while this story is a marriage where the couple and the problems of their marriage have been magnified - the dialogue and feelings are not far fetched. They are human and I can relate on most levels but they are also crazy.
"The Time Travelor's Wife" not for subject matter but similar in the way that the story can be viewed so many different ways depending on the type of person we are. As far as similar subject matter I would say "War of the Roses"....on steroids, amp'd and ready to go.
This is the first time I've heard either reader.
Not necessarily but that doesn't mean I was any less interested. I'd figured out early on what was happening but then dismissed my guess because it was far fetched maybe but then the book seemed to take another turn every time I listened to it so eventually I just gave in and let the book happen for me.
I just might create a book club for this book so I can actually discuss in detail!!
Very slow at the beginning but then after you figured out the diary was fake everything changed and I couldn't wait to see what happens.
When Amy got robbed by the trailer trash couple.
Evaluate my own personality and be sure I don't know any socopaths!
Usually I don't partake in anything trendy with lots of hype but since this book was classified as a Thriller (my new favorite category) I decided to give it a try. NOT MY CUP OF TEA!! I have already listened to "Into the darkest Place" and "Still Missing" and those were excellent stories with satisfying endings, this was not.
The story was well written and well narrated and there are plenty of twists and turns but this is a very dark and depressing picture of marriage, human nature, public opinion, the media, etc. By the end of the story I felt drained and empty then angry because I had stuck with the story only to get no satisfactory ending. Both of the main characters are unlikable and neither have qualities that are redeeming. The only characters I had any relation to are the twin sister and the female cop (Boney). They had human reactions to the situations and intellengence.
I wish I had spent my token on a different thriller, I was trying to get away from the series books and listen to a single novel. Now I am going back to the tried and true.
Just finished listening to this book, and it's the audible equivalent of a page turner....it's hard to stop listening. I must say I would agree with those who weren't satisfied with the ending, but the author gets to choose the ending, not the reader!
mother, wife, artist
This was a great novel, lots of twists and turns, who do you believe, the language was strong so be prepared for that, this book will make a great movie..but i am sure the book will be better..
I am a senior citizen who loves to listen to romance and mystery novels.
so slow moving and boring about the lives of "sick" people
Do not want to waste my time on "sick" people. This was not a true thriller just gave you an insight into "sick people. I have on my queue list Dark Places
but wonder whether I should waste my time.
None so far.
wasted a credit on this one
Yes, I thought the story line was intriguing, compelling and I would want to see if I could pick up on the clues even sooner.
I liked how it wasn't a laid out, get to the end mystery. There were twists that became more disfigured as the story played out.
The scene where Nick plays the performance of his life to get the "villain" to come back to his house and where she's shocked he pulled on over on her.
Hell Hath No Furry Like a Woman Scorned
This book has a lot of people divided by the last half of the storyline. I felt that going into it knowing some of the twisted part made me love it even more because it was like sitting in a movie, seeing someone is going to get their head chopped and you scream (futilely) "Turn around! Behind you!"
I think knowing who the bad guy was before it was revealed really made me want to figure out how it was discovered and how it ended. I think if you read this book going in blindly you would grow to hate it, because it messes with your head.
Heck, the ending alone messes with you - but it was so awesome!
Yes. Once I started I did want to finish it. It just became a little draggy at some parts.
I was a bit disappointed with the ending. It was clever, but anti-climatic compared to the section where the true nature of the characters are revealed. I expected and wanted something a bit more Earth-shattering, but I get what the author was doing. Basically, saying that it isn't over........EVER.
Still, I would have been much more satisfied if a little revenge was thrown in the face of the trouble-maker. It would have been a real "YES!!" moment.
They both presented the characters with gusto. Well done.
I haven't decided that yet. I wonder what the book would have been like had I read it myself. But, I was driving to FL and needed entertainment. I will say I was entertained.
It took a lot of thought to conjure up this story. Well detected and presented. In other words, I couldn't see a way out of the victim's hell, unless I was "Columbo". Not sure how the author thought it all through to tell you the truth. Very clever.
Also, any story that has a sociopath as a main character, is going to be very captivating. After all, nothing is more intriguing than getting inside the head a human being that has no conscious.
