I was engrossed in this book. The clever way it went back and forth between the main characters and different times in their lives and how they each saw things was a great device. But, in the end the story was so unbelievable and the ending so stupid that was horribly disappointed. I wished I could get the hours of my life that I spent listening to the book back.
Great read! It's like reading in quicksand. Everything you think you know about these people is wrong. And after you've discovered some of the deceit, there's more!
The writing style pulls you in, and both narrators do an excellent job at character development
My attention was held by the suspense.
Hard to say without revealing too much. There were several.
Oh, good question. Perfect Love Gone Bad.
Just a riveting read, made even better by audio book narration.
This is the best book I've "read" this year.
The performance was the best part of this book, very well read. The story was intricate and entertaining, however the ending left me wanting something.
I truly enjoyed the majority of this book-the colorful characters and unexpected twists and turns kept me engaged and entertained, but found myself extremely disappointed (and frustrated) with the end-it's like Flynn was on deadline and just gave up on the story. It felt rushed and extremely abrupt.
I spend a lot of time seeking out the perfect story worthy of my credit. I enjoy suspense thrillers w/ a kick of satire. I'm a picky listener.
Great narrators. You'll love and hate the characters as they drag you step-by-step through the maze of psychological torment and despair. The way the author pulled the pieces together for the final reveal in the last hour was wonderful.
Gillian Flynn; you've gained a new fan!
Loved the twists and turns. One minute I felt for sure a certain character was guilty, then the next minute I thought a different character was guilty. Just when you got comfortable with the story line, BAM a new direction. Loved it thoroughly.
I really enjoyed how it went back and forth between husband and "wife". The author did a great job at both perspectives.
I was a tad bit disappointed. I don't mind endings that let you choose your own future, but this one I felt was rushed and just kind of ended. It wasn't terrible, but I wasn't satisfied. It was still something I didn't expect, which has a positive side to it.
The scene in the sisters backyard shed.
Don't marry a psycho.
Absolutely. Change of character perspective keeps you gripped by tension and anticipating the next chapter every time.
In the end. no particular character is a favotire, which I think was the author's intent.
Perfect pitch and tone. Really added to the characters without putting themselves out there as the reader. No weird sing--song-y voices that other readers use. No forced acting. They definitely enhanced embellished the book by gently inserting their own personalities. Terrific performers who disappeared. (in a good way)
The book is like a roller coster ride. Up Down Gasp Gasp and then it rolls to a stop and you're done...
yes, I was never sure how it was going to end
they made it scary
The end was crazy
