I love to read, fly and play tennis. I always have a book and an audible book going at the same time. I'm a mystery/thriller junky.
It's difficult to describe what I mean by hate except the entire concept made me ill. The performance was great and the story as a story was perfect just like Amy. This had to have been really hard to figure out when Gillian Flynn wrote it. The plot is so twisted, so devious, so heart wrenching. I never like to watch movies of books I have read. I like my visions & imagination better than any movie producer but I had to watch this movie or I wouldn't have been able to finish the book. I had to know the ending before I got that far. I was torn and sickened by the lowdown, conniving Amy. I hope there never is or that I never meet a true life person like her. Steven James with his Agent Patrick Bowers "chess" series has some of the worst criminals you could ever imagine and they don't disgust me as much as Amy. In fact, I really like that series. I guess my mind can deal with blatant, terrible, sick villains but not scheming, lying creeps who get away with it.
Thought the performance was excellent.
I found parts of the book to be pushy and some felt as if they were stuck there as an after thought when the author couldn't let them go. The end was a complete let down. I was waiting for witty and smart and got oh-hum.
Not at this time.
Definitely, it ended terrible. So, in need of a true ending.
Not as good as I thought the book would be after all the great reviews. A book that stays on the bestsellers list as long as this one has should have ended better!
I really enjoyed this audio book. I found it very captivating. I couldn't put it down. I enjoyed the plot twists, but was slightly disappointed in the ending.
Not my cup of tea; two stars because I finished it. I prefer books where I find at least one character, hopefully the protagonist, likeable in some way, and this book is entirely devoid of that. It's well written and cleverly structured, and the narrators were fine.
[*No* spoilers!] Before I purchase this book, I read that it got really messed up in the second part, or some of the writing wasn't as believable, but stick with it, it all comes together, and the writing is insightful of the human conditions and of psychological disorders. This book is outstanding, the characters are twisted, they get inside your head and make you think the best and worst (mostly the worst), and you really feel effected by them as they progress. I'm so glad I read this before the movie so that the way Gillian unraveled the story wasn't spoiled for me, hopefully the movie will be okay.
There are two voice actors for this book and both do a great job of communicating tone and relaying which character is being spoken for. More work went into the audio of this book than most, and it really shows.
The first part made me curious - the author did a good job at hinting something was off. But the second half just felt unrealistic and dragged out.
I was curious to get to he end but was not enjoying the writing at that point. Just wanted to get it over with.
good job on narriation
not for me but yes for people who enjoyed it more
