I would recommend to a friend. The story is gripping and leaves you guessing. It shows that we don't always know people the way we think we do.
I enjoyed the story being told from two perspectives.
I can't say that the narration of Nick, was my favorite. I would have preferred someone else.
It is a book worth hearing, I feel the story is compelling and holds your attention. I was a bit disappointed with the ending.
It's a good light read.
I got some clues from the reviews so I wasn't surprised by the first twist. I was engaged for the entire book.
I listen to these books while doing housework or yard work. It's good for this because the writing is straightforward.
Everybody was going to this book either before or after "fifty" (Fifty Shades of Gray) said this wasn't as "kinky" easier flow or more of an alternative. It was NOT. Hard to follow from the beginning. I stayed with it for the first 4 hours but it never really kept my attention and that is saying something considering that I have 2 memberships and buy extra books due to travel. I haven't rated a book in a while but this one was not high on my list. Sorry but would waste a credit on it again.
Probably not, too many other great reads sitting on my wish list.
My favorites shifted back and forth many times throughout the book.
The sound quality of the performance (but not the performance itself) was mediocre, which detracted from the listening experience for me until my ears acclimated to it.
I would recommend this to all of my friends, and I wouldn't do that often.
I was 'glued' to this book. It was real, well written, and narrated.
Awesome Writing, Great Narrators, Solid Story. Certain sections of this story brought chills to my skin. Really well done and thoroughly enjoyable.
A new twist!
Nick Dunn - I started out thinking he was a typical no account husband, but then...
They were fabulous.
I was very intrigued by Parts 1 & 2. I commend Ms Flynn for her plotting, pacing and her sharp, au courant writing. I raced excitedly to the finish, hoping and wishing for a satisfactory conclusion...then I was quite disappointed. I guess it's just my hoi polloi mentality that I wanted to see a more "deserved" ending for the characters. What I got was a somewhat incomprehensible conclusion that caught me off guard, and not in a good way.
I hear this book will be made into a movie. I'm not sure if Hollywood would rewrite the ending or not? Overall, I did enjoy the book. I would recommend it to readers who always complain about too many "happy"endings. The performance, however, was top-notch! Both Ms Whelan and Mr Heyborne did a tremendous job with their alternate parts. Great work!
The narrators are excellent. I had not had the experience of listening to two narrators.
The story is a grabber - lots of twists and turns. I had no idea how it would end until it ended.
I wished for a more satisfactory ending - although the author does leave it open for a sequel. I hope there is one - I'd be the first to sign up. Great book!
This book will appeal to three sorts of people: 1. People who are married; 2. People who like good writing; 3. People who like twisting plots they don't see coming.
Know what this book did to me? It had me thinking about it when I was doing other things. And not just the old looking for holes in the mystery.
Lots of folks love this book but don't like the ending. I actually think the ending is incredibly strong, perfect for the sort of wild ride the book takes you on.
And there's just a whiff of suggestion we might hear from these characters again.
Further, I read Flynn's first two books and did this one on audio. I think the audio experience here is superior to reading the book, and I'd rarely say that. The male and female narrators do a nice job. Their voices add to the story.
