It is a very interesting book. Really thought out and filled with surprises. Unfortunately, I couldn't finish the book as I found it completely disturbing. This is the most cynical view of a relationship I have ever heard, and it was honestly was scary. Scary in a evaluate every relationship you ever had, and not Friday the 13th kind of way. I stopped listening after I realized I didn't have anyone to root for, and my face was frozen with a look of disgust and disbelief on the drive home at the twisted nature of these characters. Not for everyone.
The narrators did an excellent job! That was one of the very few high points. They certainly brought authenticity to the characters.
Yes, I was very unsettled about how the book ended. No justice or was their justice???
I read the reviews of this book and a lot of people said how it was very dark. This built up my expectations too much so that I was actually disappointed with the story. It is not that dark. Maybe it will be for you but maybe not. I am not sorry that I purchased it but I wish I did not have any preconceptions before I started. Hope you enjoy if you decide to purchase.
I loved the way the male and female voices went back and forth as they told Nick and Amy's story. After all the hype the book received, I was excited to see where the story led me. It didn't take me long to get bored. The first part of the book dragged and I almost stopped listening three or four times. But I had already invested so much time in the book, I felt like I had to keep going. I do have to say that I predicted the twist. (I had seen this in a long ago episode of The Young and the Restless soap opera.) Even so, the details were mind boggling. So I kept listening. And then came the end. What a disappointment. It's as if someone told Ms. Flynn, "you have 10 minutes to finish the book" and so she flew to the end. It ended so flat. So, nineteen hours and fourteen minutes later, I can say that I read "Gone Girl," but I can't tell you why.
Loved the book, couldn't stop listening, but was really disappointed with the ending. However, I would absolutely recommend, we can't all like the ending :)
I would absolutely read another book by this author & these narrorators.
