I am immortal ....so far. I enjoy a god story and love a great narrator. :-)
Sad commentary on the world that we can all relate in some way. But very entertaining to listen to, and the narrators we great!
This was a very entertaining book! It was meant to be for my commute, but ended up cooking and cleaning house to it as well :)
The story was engaging, and the characters were interesting and unpredictable.
This book was different; I don't think I've read anything similar.
Where Weakness meets Devious OR Battle of the Nit Wit vs. the Witch.
This book was well written and really kept me interested -- couldn't wait to get back to it. However, the ending was totally disappointing to me. I wanted the main character to get revenge, and instead he succumbed to weakness. I think the author could have come up with a much more satisfying ending.

Probably wouldn't listen again. The end is so unique and I already know it now.
Yes, lots of twists and turns.
Gillian Flynn rocks!
All I can say about the narration is this, I had just finished an audio book with this same female reader and was SO disappointed to find I just downloaded another with her! (what are the chances!)Previously her voice was so whiny, however I was suprised that she did much better on this novel, must be the difference in the books! So the lesson is don't judge a narrator by just one book!
I found the writing to be very good. There were parts where I would think to myself, yes I can see how you would feel that way and it was quite believable in the descriptions. Now as far as the book being beleivable I don't know, a little far-fetched....but still enjoyed it.
Started off with a hook, interesting characters, steady pace right into the middle. However, the whole plot turn rather predictable as it progress. The whole story ended with a incomprehensible crash, somewhat disappointed with all the rave reviews.
I loved the twists and turns! Just when I thought it was going to be predictable...it wasn't. Julia Whelan was spot on for Amy and although I thought he was good, Kirby Heyborne's voice did not match what Nick looked like in my head. Very entertaining though, well thought out story.
Only thing I didn't like was the ending. I felt it was a bit anticlimactic. Does this mean there will be another book???
Maybe readers of romance novels.
The narration was okay.
I didn't like any of it so it wasn't an editing problem.
This book turned me off right from the beginning. The foolish, silly diary, socialite snob and the "feel sorry for me" husband were boring, trite and simplistic. I figured out most of it and only listened to the whole thing because I wanted to see if I was missing something that everyone else seemed to find so fascinating. Part 2 stretched credibility so far it snapped. I really like to have a protagonist to root for (even a serial killer like Dexter is more appealing than these two) but I couldn't stand a single character in this book. I seriously don't get why this is a best seller.
So i have been waiting for Flynn to release a new book for quite some time now, and this was anything but a disappointment. The Characters were literally insane, the story kept you guessing, and the outcome is still a bit creepy.
Of course you have tons of mature language and pretty graphic scenes, typical in all of Flynn's works, but it was masterfully written.
The Performance is one of my favorites, extremely well narrated.
