I spend a lot of time in my vehicle for my job, and I manage to listen to about 60 books a year.
I saw the movie first and still couldn't put it down. I dug the movie, but I REALLY dug the book.
A great listen. The voice actors did an especially good job, though at times their inflections for different characters did pull me out of the story slightly. But it didn't ruin the experience by any stretch of the imagination.
This book got a great deal of hype and did not disappoint. I'm not even a fan of thrillers but was unable to stop listening for a moment without withdrawal.
While complex and clearly unstable, I found the primary characters both extremely unlikeable and therefore never really had an emotional connection to the story. The story line is good, I also enjoyed the style but just wish that I cared one flip about Nick or Amy.
I like this author's writing style for the most part. That being said, I thought this story got a little long and dragged out for what ends up being a disappointing very weak ending. Perhaps she was leaving an opening for a sequel.
Tell us about yourself!
Narrators were great, but did not care for the story. The constant switching back and forth between Amy and Nick was boring after the first half of the book. The ending was a pathetic let down. Amy is horrible and Nick is a wimp. Just my opinion. Others seem to love the book
