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.
I really enjoyed the book and the narrators were good.
I really liked Nick
They did great voices for different characters
Not really, but it did keep me in suspense the entire time
It's hard to write anything about this without giving something away. I was a bit bored at first but got to the point where I didn't want to stop listening. Just when I thought I had it figured out, I was wrong!
Another Audible Addict
Thank you Audible! I am so glad to have discovered Gillian Flynn. I love her prose like style and the way she can describe any situation with attention to the smallest detail. she really makes you really feel like you are inside the story. The performance was great. I like that the male and female parts were read by the same. The plot has momentum, twists and turns. It teeters and totters and will surprise you. The only critisism I was with the end. I thought it got a little far fetched and I also wished it wasn't so vauge. If not that, then I wish it could just go on and on, because it was such a joy to read.
Maybe there will be a Gone Girl 2?
