Overall, I liked this book. The twists kept me off balance the entire time and the narrators did an excellent job voicing the characters. My only complaint would be the need to overlook some marginally improbable developments.
I tried to get through the book because I knew it was a good story from its ranking in book reviews, but it was very hard to enjoy it while gagging on the poor narration by both narrators. You might want to listen to the sample first to see if their voices and reading techniques hit you the same way.
Having two narrators tell this story brought it to life in a way that might not have been possible had I read the print version. Both actors did a fantastic job portraying the characters of this murder mystery.
I have not read or listened to a book like this, the plot feels like a Hollywood thrill ride.
They truly make the story three dimensional and the characters they play feel like real people going through this dramatic event.
Without question. Once the story grabs you a few chapters in you find yourself not able to put it down. If you listen while running, expect do do some extra miles.
Great Listen that is intense. By the end your view of the characters might surprise you.
The work starts strong and promising but falls flat in the end. An affliction, it seems, of most writers. You see the truth about Nick's guilt/innocence (ha) a mile away but hold on as the patient precise web of Amy is...interesting. But this is not sustainable and she is relegated to the banal female and he (Nick) to the uninteresting stereotypical male. By the middle of the second half I had no interest in the characters survival (separately or together) and just wanted it to end.
Ego and patience
Dynamic, unpredictable, thought provoking
The hero of the story changes thought out the book. It makes you want to know what happens and you can't stop listening
I think my favorite character was probably Amy. She is a very dynamic character
I laughed more than I cried but the laughter was mostly in disbelief and awe of the story. It is a far fetched story but still believable. I think this is one of the things that made me really like the book.
Strange book in some ways but a very interesting and dynamic storyline. I love books like this that are unpredictable with lots of twists and turns that you don't see coming. The characters are very interesting and you can't decide who you want to root for.
dark, twisted, addictive
Really liked the first 2/3rds of this novel. The story of a narcissistic wife married to a sociopathic husband had great twists and turns that kept me trying to outsmart the clues to figure out the truth when the wife goes missing and presumed dead.
I enjoyed listening to the audiobook. The voices added an additional dimension to the characters.
I would have given this book 5 stars, but the last part (I won't provide any more details, but if you read the book, you'll know what I am talking about) dragged on a little too long and would have been more powerful if it had been tighter.
I even worked out just to have an excuse to listen more!!!
I recommend to anyone who loves a good mystery
This book begins as a mystery. It sucks you in, you want more and more. Through the story, you are appalled and shocked at what is revealed. You simply can't believe what is happening. Each of the characters are deep and richly developed, intriguing in their own way. At the end, we are left with what we started with, a husband and a wife, a couple and from that we realize how they are really no different than most any of us and that is the most appalling part.
Yes, most definitely!
This kept you wondering the entire time!! Very well written and very well read!! I couldnt stop listening!
Well, It is after 3am & I have just finished this book. Wow! Talk about a page turner. I literally could not stop until I got to the end. This story is so full of twists & turns & deliciously demented characters.
