The story is about a bickering couple advertised as a really good mystery novel. The end was predictable and underwhelming, but the story was well written.
This was an excellent book and I enjoyed it very much. However I did not like the ending. It just leaves you hanging.
I would absolutely recommend this audio book to a friend or anyone! Not only was the story written well by Gillian Flynn it was also told well by the narrators. This was the first audio book I've listened to and the bar has been set high. I've listened to a few others since this one and nothing has compared.
The plot kept me guessing and wanting to know more. I wanted to listen to this book even when it was inconvenient for me to do so. The characters were relatable and disturbing all rolled into one. It was ridiculous.
I thought the performances by these narrators were very powerful. I plan on looking up other books they've narrated because of how great they did.
There were many moments in this book that moved me. Almost all of them would be spoilers in a way. Almost all of Amy's perspective was moving.
My favorite book written by Gillian Flynn.
To begin with the story was great. Book one was intriguing, book two was ok, but book three tedious. The story was good, but too long.
Loved the suspense created by the author, but I found her to be a little unnecessarily verbose at times in her description of details.
Also, if she had a purpose in ending the book the way she has, it does not convey itself ŵell at all. The ending seemed incomplete and as a result left me feeling bewildered and wondering what she intended her readers to infer from it.
Other than that, the book keeps us hooked into the psyches and motivations of the characters. Basically, by seeing how Nick's background and childhood is and due to it, whether he's actually capable of doing what he's being accused of.
Once the truth is revealed, Amy's psyche keeps us interested in the way she is portrayed by the author. All in all it is an interesting portrayal of the mind of a sociopath, and exactly how they are able to reason out their actions with such a remorseless attitude.
