I probably wouldn't listen to Gone Girl again. While I enjoyed the story, the male narrator's voice really annoyed me. I felt like it didn't fit the physical description or the personality of the character.
Yes. I never wanted to stop listening. I just wanted to know what the HELL was happening.
I think the male narrator should have been someone different, with a voice that matched the character. The female narrator was perfect! I loved her and hated her, just like I should have.
Do not be deceived by appearances.
Psychotic, Toxic, Spellbinding.
Amy was my favorite character. She was calculating and devious and she draws the reader into her web of psychosis.

This book has been one of my favorite audiobooks so far. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 for story is the ending was somewhat dissapointing. The entire book is riveting and keeps you guessing. The book takes a turn about two-thirds through, but then starts to unravel a bit. I still highly recommend, I just would have ended it differently.
I would've enjoyed this audio book more if the male narration was done by someone else. The only reason I gave two stars for performance was because I really enjoy Julia Whelan's work. The story (plot) is very slow moving and unintriguing. The format of male and female characterizations performed separately takes me out of the flow of the plot. Finally, a refund would make this a better experience for me. :-(
The author did a great job throughout the book, but seemingly lost his drive toward the end. 85% of the book was a great listen. I could've done without the last part and left it to my imagination.
The guy second-guessing himself and the rather thin rationalization for that.
Not much...just not my kind of story.
Don't know...the narration was okay, but the sNeeded more action, less psychoanalysistory couldn't be saved by it.
Not sure...did not finish the book.
I am rarely seen without my headphones on and my iPod clipped on my waist. I love my books.
I almost gave up on this book, the beginning was tough for me to get through. I found my mind wandering and unable to stay focused on the book. I stayed with it and I am glad that I did. I must say it is not your usual mystery and that is one of the reasons that I enjoyed it. By the third part of this book, I could not put it down. It is well worth the credit.
I listen on my way to and from work. My time is valuable so I much prefer only "very good" reads. The voice and presentation is just as important to me as the story itself.
i don't think there is anything about this book that is a better experience from listening vs. reading.
It was an interesting story, kept me interested. At times on edge, but also with a bit of "now that would not be possible" Still am intriguing tale that I would recommend.
too long for that!
While at times the story is hard to fully believe, it was interesting, entertaining, and I kept me listening until the very end.
Hero & Heroin – Villain and Villainous and they are 2 in the same
There are soooo many twists and turns you just keep going and you are constantly wondering what is going to happen next. That is until about ¾ of the way through and then it gets wordy and you just want it to “get on with it”. However, keep going...
It keeps the reader guessing and that even happens at the very end. Two ways to look at the ending… Who won the game? I do not know and neither does my other half. Makes you wonder… and keep discussing…
