This book gets going about 7 hours in. I almost wish I knew that beforehand, but I don't regret having experienced this book! I understand that every book has to have a backstory. However, I feel like this one just went on and on in explaining how they met and how awful their marriage had turned out to be. I really do not think all that was necessary in conveying how much their marriage had gone awry. That being said, when the suspense and drama gets going, it is awesome! Exactly the Law and Order SVU meets Criminal Minds meets psycho Lifetime Movie I was expecting it to be! So my point is, if you can survive through the very boring first 6-7 hours, you will very much enjoy this audiobook. P.S. The narration was superb and engaging.
If you enjoy stories involving shallow, ice-cold sociopathic characters, then this is the book for you. Me? I have better things to do with my time. Dont get me wrong, I love a good thriller or mystery...but the sociopathic mind of the main character was too over the top for me. I've enjoyed reading crime novels in the past but this one rubbed me the wrong way because there was absolutely no closure or justice, if you will.
I've been way into Hemingway recently; next up is "In our Time".
Well, I didnt like the tone of the female narrator but that wasn't her fault...it was the character I didnt like. They did a good job of reading the book, were easy to follow.
Too many treasure hunts and letters to read/listen to; too many diary entries.
A perfectly delicious twisted tale - Oh the tangled web we weave.....Loved every minute of it...seriously who could think up these things?!?
No, but I will definitely reccommend
I liked that I was able to relate to Amy;s relationship challenges with her husband. It reminded me of conversations with my girlfriend. A game of one up.
Nick's first interview...how he seemed so cold and sincere yet his underlying motive was so devilish.
Woman gone mad.
Listened to this audiobook in a matter of days (would have been faster if not for school and work!) Murder mystery thriller with an amazing twist! This was my first experience with author Gillian Flynn and I was very impressed. I especially enjoyed the psychological aspect and the unique perspectives from the characters. Both narrators, Julia Whelan and Kirby Heyborne did a perfect job. They truly gave me the impression they were actually the characters. Loved it!
Say something about yourself!
Yes, the narration was quite good and did a great job of keeping the listener intrigued and entertained.
Go. I liked her strong personality and spirit.
I found this book played on many of my emotions which included shock, dismay, doubt, humor and a seriously disappointing ending in my opinion. I would have preferred to see justice served.
Interesting story line. Amy is quite the trip and
Alternance between stories. The way it goes and describes same time, different arguments, same prolems, different appreciation.
mystery, and actual way of life
more or less
Action-Packed thriller filled with twists and turns. Goosebumps are inevitable at the halfway point. Absolutely loved it. Very entertaining.
No. I found the characters unlikeable and the writing conventional.
They were good narrators, maybe made the audiobook better than the written book.
It was an easy read.
I thought the performance — having both a female and male narrator — was refreshing, as I was expecting to hear just the man doing the woman's voice.
This is the first book I've read where it was narrated by both main characters, so I don't really have one to compare it to (particularly within the mystery genre).
I thought they did a good job expressing the characters' emotions in a convincing manner. I could definitely picture them in my mind and think, "Yes, these people are believable."
I didn't really want to listen to it all at once.... at first. I was the most engaged once I got to Part 2, and then I found it hard to stop listening!
Overall, I really enjoyed this book. I was a bit disappointed with how it ended, but I was very engaged by the back-and-forth narration between Nick and Amy. It left me "hanging," which is why I kept reading.
