Yes, I was interested in this story and enjoyed the twists an turns along the way. I do not usually write reviews but after listening to this story I left so flat that I just had to say something. I really enjoyed this crazy book so I gave it a good rating, the end felt forced and just blah to me.
Yes, I listened to this story every spare moment and I really liked it until the end.
I won't spoil the end of the book by sharing it. I just thought the book was leading up to something big but it didn't.
written less and been more creative with the finale
no, this was the first one
This book is a sucker punch to the gut, repeatedly.
Less chatter and get to the point faster, less profanity (not really necessary and didn't help the story), and a faster moving storyline. I almost put it down and didn't finish. It took way to long to get interesting.
Start the book at the last 1/4.
no they were okay
Only the last few chapters
I didn't care about any of the characters. The plot was horrible. I can't think of one positive thing to say about it. Maybe it is a study in psychopathic behavior or extreme co-dependence!???
Narrators were good enough
NONE at all
I stuck with it because it was suspenseful and I wanted to see how it turned out.
What a waste of time. NO redeeming qualities!
One of my top 5 books is 'Dark Places' by Gillian Flynn. So by reading reviews and getting a recommendations, I decided to take a chance. Oh man, am I so very glad I did
I very much enjoy the Gillian takes the time in her books for you to know what each person involved is experiencing. Though this novel does take a turn with this format - it keeps you interested and can't wait to see what happens next.
The build up and explanation of Nick and Amy are done very, very well. The different parts of this story dig you deeper into what they are thinking and how they respond to each other.
I will admit that I'm not the best at writing reviews, all I ever want to do is 'Just give it a chance' because I don't want to give anything away. But honestly, take the time! This book deserves any and all rewards it's received. Though I have listened to it on audio - I will be going out and purchasing this book - just so I can borrow it out to people so they can experience it as well.
Avid reader turned listener.
Can I really "review" this book without giving much of the conclusion away? No
Would I recommend this book to a friend? Definitely Yes.
I agree with some of the other listeners, but I won't say which way I sway in opinion. Pretty well-written, engrossing, and again, I would recommend others read it. I realize this may be a terrible review, but I'm trying to preserve the integrity of the story here. If you have any interest in this novel, go for it. If you're hesitant, forget it.
On the narration, it was pretty good, although Kirby's "my wiiiife"s were grating on my nerves. He just said it weird.
The writing - going between the main characters was brilliantly done.
The sister. She was very believable.
This seemed slow for a short while at the beginning - but wow it picked up and is great fun and entertainment! Can;t wait to see how it ends!
I usually do not like books with more then one narrator but this was done to perfection.
Two unforgivable, unlovable, characters at war with each other.
Couple of interesting twists in their battles. So not worth your time, or the showers you'll have to take trying to wash them and their story out of your mind.
Then, if you're a masochist, this may be right up your reading alley.
I have never read or listened to a book of which I had such an unfavorable opinion of a character and then by the end of the book my opinion completely reversed!
The moments when it was revealed why his wife hid their anniversary clues where she did.
