A new twist!
Nick Dunn - I started out thinking he was a typical no account husband, but then...
They were fabulous.
I was very intrigued by Parts 1 & 2. I commend Ms Flynn for her plotting, pacing and her sharp, au courant writing. I raced excitedly to the finish, hoping and wishing for a satisfactory conclusion...then I was quite disappointed. I guess it's just my hoi polloi mentality that I wanted to see a more "deserved" ending for the characters. What I got was a somewhat incomprehensible conclusion that caught me off guard, and not in a good way.
I hear this book will be made into a movie. I'm not sure if Hollywood would rewrite the ending or not? Overall, I did enjoy the book. I would recommend it to readers who always complain about too many "happy"endings. The performance, however, was top-notch! Both Ms Whelan and Mr Heyborne did a tremendous job with their alternate parts. Great work!
The narrators are excellent. I had not had the experience of listening to two narrators.
The story is a grabber - lots of twists and turns. I had no idea how it would end until it ended.
I wished for a more satisfactory ending - although the author does leave it open for a sequel. I hope there is one - I'd be the first to sign up. Great book!
This book will appeal to three sorts of people: 1. People who are married; 2. People who like good writing; 3. People who like twisting plots they don't see coming.
Know what this book did to me? It had me thinking about it when I was doing other things. And not just the old looking for holes in the mystery.
Lots of folks love this book but don't like the ending. I actually think the ending is incredibly strong, perfect for the sort of wild ride the book takes you on.
And there's just a whiff of suggestion we might hear from these characters again.
Further, I read Flynn's first two books and did this one on audio. I think the audio experience here is superior to reading the book, and I'd rarely say that. The male and female narrators do a nice job. Their voices add to the story.
Lots of twists & turns kept me interested.
Two narrators, which worked nicely, but both read their lines too slowly. I felt like the narrators took away from the story rather than added to it.
I'm normally not a big fan of psychological thrillers, but I totally enjoyed this one. This was especially well written, and both narrators were absolutely terrific, which added to my enjoyment. Highly recommend this.
Couldn't stop listening...drawn into the plot and characters, but found the ending terribly unsatisfying.
I enjoyed the his and her narration.
Rarely do I read a book and I am shocked by the story. This book had me floored multiple times!
The his and her story line was emphasized by the narration.
This book made me want to laugh and cry! It was a OMG book.
i enjoyed this book a lot. Just when i thought it was going to be so predictable it went off in a completely surprising direction...and not just once! It was well worth the listen.
I kept waiting for something to happen- and it did- about halfway through the book. The story is somewhat predictable-- but not enough for me not to recommend it. There are a lot of crazy people out there.
