I would not listen to this book again. I do not like the way the book ends, it leaves you hanging.
I would give it a good solid ending. It is a very long read.
I wanted to hate the female character but at the end the male character was the one I disliked the most.
This book was not intended to move anyone IMO
First time with this author. Not sure if I would seek out her books again.
Out of 450 books I have read the last years it is so bad.... The story line is so bad . Please don;t spend your money on this book. Did I like it NO NO NO..
My favorite part of this book was being able to hear the thought process of both of the main characters in this book. Most books you read you only get to hear one side of the story.
I like nonfiction, biographies and the occasional novel. BUT I can not pass up a good mystery, crime novel, or really great suspense plot. I am fascinated by an author's creative ability to interweave twists. Since Flynn's 'Gone Girl', the bar for a completely unseen game-changer is pretty high! Challenge extended :)
No one thing.
Yes I found myself lost in the book and realized that I had stopped doing what I had been doing while listening- multi-tasking. I was sitting there staring at the wall completely engrossed.
Any other readers with suggestions of more selections like this please clue me in!
I listen and walk, I walked 5 miles one day because I didn't want to stop listening !
Yes I would listen again, the story keeps you guessing and trying to figure out the plot!
Both main characters kept you listening and trying to pick a favorite.
Tell us about yourself!
The narration was GREAT for this audio book!
The story was great- I wasn't sure what to expect and I ended up really enjoying it!
It kept me guessing...
I love reading and audible is the easiest way to keep up with my voracious appetite for the written word.
This story really is a tight narrative that twists and turns it's way into your psyche. I'm new to Gillian Flynn, and usually don't commit to an author so quickly, but I think she had me at crazy. I'll definitely return for more!
Last month I listened to "Broken Harbor' by Tara French. I just finished "Gone Girl". These are basically the same story. Both are mysteries that are set in the ruble of the economic collapse. Broken Harbor is set in Ireland and Gone Girl is set in the mid-west. Both start with a mystery and slowly weave out the how. where and why through flash backs and little clues. Broken Harbor is full of great characters and deep plot- Gone Girl has vacuous, idiotic characters with a plot SO thin I knew where it was going almost immediately. There is one plot error so glaring I was completely amazed it never came up in the end. It would have changed the ending if any of the characters had paid as much attention as I did.
I actually thought about returning this for a refund but I never quit a book I start. Do your self a favor and get Broken Harbor. You will be glad you did.
Just by luck, I found a review in a magazine after I had purchased it here - by the advert here on Audible~
I do NOT regret this purchase in ANY way!~
I refuse to write more on the actual writings as I do not want to leave any HINTS,
I laughed, I cried, I yelled in anger, I curled up tighter in my chair as I listened.
I smiled and was sad as the last words were spoken.
I would gladly of listened for another 19 hrs.
