I listen and walk, I walked 5 miles one day because I didn't want to stop listening !
Yes I would listen again, the story keeps you guessing and trying to figure out the plot!
Both main characters kept you listening and trying to pick a favorite.
Tell us about yourself!
The narration was GREAT for this audio book!
The story was great- I wasn't sure what to expect and I ended up really enjoying it!
It kept me guessing...
I love reading and audible is the easiest way to keep up with my voracious appetite for the written word.
This story really is a tight narrative that twists and turns it's way into your psyche. I'm new to Gillian Flynn, and usually don't commit to an author so quickly, but I think she had me at crazy. I'll definitely return for more!
Last month I listened to "Broken Harbor' by Tara French. I just finished "Gone Girl". These are basically the same story. Both are mysteries that are set in the ruble of the economic collapse. Broken Harbor is set in Ireland and Gone Girl is set in the mid-west. Both start with a mystery and slowly weave out the how. where and why through flash backs and little clues. Broken Harbor is full of great characters and deep plot- Gone Girl has vacuous, idiotic characters with a plot SO thin I knew where it was going almost immediately. There is one plot error so glaring I was completely amazed it never came up in the end. It would have changed the ending if any of the characters had paid as much attention as I did.
I actually thought about returning this for a refund but I never quit a book I start. Do your self a favor and get Broken Harbor. You will be glad you did.
Just by luck, I found a review in a magazine after I had purchased it here - by the advert here on Audible~
I do NOT regret this purchase in ANY way!~
I refuse to write more on the actual writings as I do not want to leave any HINTS,
I laughed, I cried, I yelled in anger, I curled up tighter in my chair as I listened.
I smiled and was sad as the last words were spoken.
I would gladly of listened for another 19 hrs.
Yes, I already did. The narrators were great.
ABility to mimic other peoples voices and make me feel like I was watching a movie! I could visualize everything!
Yes, the sudden and unexpected "escape" from her old boyfriend and showing up at the front door.
So fun to listen to my book club book. I am afraid that it was so fun and so convenient, I almost feel like Nick ... CHEATER!!!
I'm only through two of the three installments and I already really love this book. It's well structured and very enjoyable to listen to.
I was - and continue to be - surprised by the characters and the plot twists. I listen during my commute and have often found myself talking back to Nick and Amy!
This is my first book from this author, but I'm sure I'll read more of her once I've finished.
Not sure how much I do or don't like the readers themselves, but since this book is told in the separate voices of the two main characters, it's interesting and I think very effective to hear it come from two readers.
Liked the story a lot (though I figured out most of the twists - they were a little predictable to me). Performance is excellent - loved both narrators. Will definitely listen to more by Gillian Flynn!
One of the better audiobooks I've listened too. Engrossing and well performed.
Gillian Flynn excelled in developing each and everyone of her characters.
They brought the story to life and were successful at making the characters believable.
