Remarkably inadequate ending, unbelievable coalescence of psychoses and bizarre exaggerations, and relatively poor writing. I finished it because someone recommended it-I wish I had followed my initial insight and not wasted my time. Life is too short to waste time on inadequate books!
I loved this! I was very worried that with all the hype it wouldn't stand up to reviews but I was wrong. I was on the edge of my seat.
Don't use such offensive language. Ruined a good story.
Couldn't force myself to finish.
I got this audible trusting the Poe awards and other listeners. Audible reviewers were correct in that you have to get through 1/2 of the book before it spins. Good news is that it spins oh, so well! Bad news is that it took too long to spin. I wish the author could have streamlined the first 1/2 of the book. While the first 1/2 sets up many elements of the second 1/2 I was getting tired. I would say this book slowly climbed up a hill and on the descent there were good twists and turns.
This is one of the most unusual and intriguing book I've ever read!!! I recommended it to every one of my friends. From the storyline to performance, to the uniqueness of this book, I give it a five-star all the way. Sure the ending is kind of unsatisfying but that's part of the beauty of this book. Everyone in this book is flawed, therefore the ending has to be too. It keeps you guessing from the beginning to the end, I couldn't stop listening to it. The performance is very good too, fit for the characters. Get this book, you won't regret, it's kind of dark but in a very good way, keeps you thinking for days even months, which is my indication of a good book.
I mostly listen on my commute. I love Sci-fi, mystery thrillers, vampire love stories, great girlfriend stories and political thrillers.
The narrators were excellent! I always judge a book by how well it captures my emotions. This book did an excellent job of doing just that. Very addictive, couldn't stop listening. The husband as the obvious choice was too predicable, so you find yourself rooting for some redeeming qualities to surface in him, but they really don't. And once you find out the story's secret, you're not really sure who to root for. It definitely makes you think twice about your relationship and just how well you know your significant other!! Worth the credit, although the ending could have been better and wrapped things up more neatly.
I didn't know how this was going to end until the I actually got there. The plot twists and sudden revelations make the entire book interesting. It wasn't what I expected: I expected to be more about everyday domestic violence. But things are not as they appear.
The story meandered and was really dark, twisted, and depressing. Very unsatisfying ending.
A tighter novel. Or a non-fiction book.
The narrators really got into character. Julia Whelan was amazing and hearing Kirby go through all these emotional changes In the midst of his wife going missing, wow.
The realization that what we thought it was, wasn't and what often think it is, isn't.....it was an amazing turn of events and the author sketched it out perfectly.
This is a surprising thriller that definitely Tests your mind on a number of different levels.
The whole story line
Not a Flynn book
The storyline was so outrageous
No just angry that I finished it
Very disappointed on a best seller.
