Never read the book, so can't compare.
Momento maybe? I don't usually read mysteries.
My reaction was more of surprise. What you are reading at the beginning turns out o be fake, so you are finding out half way through that the characters have completely different personalities than you thought! It was a very unique way of writing that I thoguht was brilliant!
This book is brilliantly written giving twists and turns that you don't see coming. The characters aren't who you think they are!
I liked how the book toggled between the characters, allowing for simultaneous unravelling of the plot.
Yes, many unexpected twists and turns. Clever and cunning plot.
Riveting story about love, lies and the ultimate deceit...
I did not want it to end. I was a little surprised by the atypical Hollywood ending :)
Tell us about yourself!
amazing good read
they really made the words jump and it was not just read ..it was acted
Easy, quick read. Entertaining story with lots of twists. No classical so don't expect stealthy writing or a lot of intricate layers, it's just a simple book meant to be read as such. The female lead does what many of us "wish" we could do (and get away with)!! Worth a read if you have the time to spare.
I already have.
I don't really know what to say without ruining the plot!
The analysis of relationships.
The shock when Amy turned out to be so evil and how detailed her plans were.
Yes, you never knew what evil trick she had set up next for Nick.
Voice inflections for their characters and other characters in the book, such as Desi.
I got tired of hearing the word "bitch". I thought the parts of the story where it was used could have been told with less repetition of this word. There was so much detail in Amy's planning but so little detail in the potential unravelling of her story about Desi. It seemed unlikely that that end would not have been investigated further. Perhaps in a sequel?
The build up was good, the story was entertaining and kept me guessing the whole way. The ending ruined the whole book. It was like the last few chapters were written by a completely different person.
Decent plot with sustained tension.
Really enjoyed their point-counterpoint performances.
The husband did it...didn't he?
Found the ending disappointing in its improbability. Admittedly tough to wrap up a story like this one.
Would not recommend this book as I spent too long getting nowhere with it.
The most disappointing thing was no resolution. Good start, no fizz at end.
I do not think I have listened to either. The reader for the wife's impression on me has been tainted by the character in the book, not by the skills of the reader.
Yes, probably will not recommend this book or this author.
I enjoyed this audio book immensely. The narrators did an excellent job reflecting the characters and the story itself was great. The story was suspenseful with a lot of great twists and turns. Highly recommended.
