readers who enjoy current slang and messy dialog
I like my writing much tighter
probably not, certainly not on purpose but as I said the narration doesn't seem to fit the character, perhaps Ms/Mr Flynn is excellent in a different genre
Others seem to love this book; I can only speak for myself. I couldn't buy the story or the narrator.
The twist. Never saw it coming and it was brilliant. As they say - things are not always what they seem....
Nick. I couldn't decide whether I loved him or hated him. In the end I just pitied him.
They brought the characters to life. Fabulous narration.
Gone Girl was one of the more captivating listens. I listened in the car, in the yard, in the kitchen, in the bathroom, just about everywhere, it was that enthrallilng.
The author gave just enough foreshadowing to keep you on the edge of your seat but not enough to give away anything.
Favorite or most emotional? I had to stop what I was doing when **spoiler alert** Amy came home and started making up this crazy story about being held hostage, because I was so mad at her I was yelling as if Nick could hear me, "She's lying,she's evil! Don't believe her!"
I just started hating Amy with a passion! I started yelling at her while the narrator was reading her part.
Highly recommended for anyone who really wants to get involved in a story.
I really enjoyed this audio book, I like mysteries and thrillers but this felt like a fresh story line which made it hard to stop listening. Lots of twists and turns.
YES- after the first big twist or two....you can't wait to see what the next twist will be
It's definitely one of the better books I have listened to.
In the beginning Nick sounded so wimpy that I didn't think I would manage to finish listening but that definitely changed with all the plot twists.
No favorite but I liked the descriptions of the dynamics of their marriage
"Marital bliss" redefined
Gillian Flynn has a knack for the dark and twisty and I can't get enough. Gone Girl is a dark and twisted look into a marriage told from both sides in an alternating narrative that really worked well for the story.
I can't say that this is her best, but she definitely doesn't disappoint! I feel like the less you know going into this, the better... so easy to pick up a spoiler in the reviews. So give it a listen for yourself and enjoy the ride!!
Say something about yourself!
someone waiting for a second book
motel and fishing scene for such a smart woman this was just dumb
This book is really good. Among all the books I've listened to I would place it as 3rd best.
The whole book was memorable, just when you think you got it figured out... it all changes.
Both Julia and Kirby did a great job narrating, they embraced the characters every well.
