The narrators are excellent. I had not had the experience of listening to two narrators.
The story is a grabber - lots of twists and turns. I had no idea how it would end until it ended.
I wished for a more satisfactory ending - although the author does leave it open for a sequel. I hope there is one - I'd be the first to sign up. Great book!
This book will appeal to three sorts of people: 1. People who are married; 2. People who like good writing; 3. People who like twisting plots they don't see coming.
Know what this book did to me? It had me thinking about it when I was doing other things. And not just the old looking for holes in the mystery.
Lots of folks love this book but don't like the ending. I actually think the ending is incredibly strong, perfect for the sort of wild ride the book takes you on.
And there's just a whiff of suggestion we might hear from these characters again.
Further, I read Flynn's first two books and did this one on audio. I think the audio experience here is superior to reading the book, and I'd rarely say that. The male and female narrators do a nice job. Their voices add to the story.
Lots of twists & turns kept me interested.
Two narrators, which worked nicely, but both read their lines too slowly. I felt like the narrators took away from the story rather than added to it.
I'm normally not a big fan of psychological thrillers, but I totally enjoyed this one. This was especially well written, and both narrators were absolutely terrific, which added to my enjoyment. Highly recommend this.
Couldn't stop listening...drawn into the plot and characters, but found the ending terribly unsatisfying.
I enjoyed the his and her narration.
Rarely do I read a book and I am shocked by the story. This book had me floored multiple times!
The his and her story line was emphasized by the narration.
This book made me want to laugh and cry! It was a OMG book.
i enjoyed this book a lot. Just when i thought it was going to be so predictable it went off in a completely surprising direction...and not just once! It was well worth the listen.
I kept waiting for something to happen- and it did- about halfway through the book. The story is somewhat predictable-- but not enough for me not to recommend it. There are a lot of crazy people out there.
I would definitely change the direction of the book. I would change the ending. I would have a hero. Every book needs a satisfactory ending. This book lacked that element.
Not yet. There are too many other authors I'd prefer to read.
I enjoyed Book 1 and part of Book 2 the best. I enjoyed how the collapse of Nick and Amy's marriage was described and some of the asides about our current culture.
I would just say that it's a very long listen for something that turns out so badly (for me).
I'd have to put it in the top three.
I had no idea where the author was going with this. I love that!
While I thoroughly enjoyed both performances, Julia was just so convincing as the victimized wife, then equally adept as the psycho wife. What a challenging role!
