I had seen the movie first and was looking for my next audiobook. What an amazing decision I made. Every twist and turn was shocking. The change of events was chilling. Couldn't wait to listen to more every day.
The story starts out like a lifetime movie. And you think, "how quickly can I speed this up to the predictable ending". But it's far from your ordinary story. It's got many twists and turns and much of the tension that comes with unpredictability... Overall a great story.
Romantic, twisted thriller
I loved that Amy's voice had such personality. It was a tone that resonated with me.
It made me gasp and laugh quite often. There were many playful, funny scenes but also many unexpected events.
The story was well written and performed well. I really didn't know what to expect. There were surprises every few chapters and was incredibly entertaining. I could easily re-listen to the whole thing, possibly even read a physical copy :)
Yes. The writing was good, and there were several metaphors and descriptions that were outstanding. I got a good sense of the characters. On the narration: sometimes the characters came off a little whiney, but perhaps I would just read them differently. The portrayal of devolving Amy was particularly good.
Twists and turns in the plot. Just when I was getting a bit bored, the story took an interesting turn into another adventure. And I was happy to go on another ride with the characters.
Yes. There was nothing boring about the narration.
I enjoyed the great majority of the book, but the ending just did not make sense to me. I saw opportunities for the characters to reveal the diabolical manipulations being visited on them, so the fact that they allowed defeat just didn't fly with me. I was disappointed in the end. But the book was a good read. And I would read Flynn again, and listen to Whelan and/or Heyborne again.
