I would recommend this audiobook to a friend because it was full of twists and surprises. Most of it was NOT at all predictable.
The suspense and being continually on the edge of my chair made it difficult to walk away from this book.
It would be difficult to chose between which character was my favorite. They were both quite unique and fascinating, although I grew to despise them both equally.
When it became apparent Amy was a manipulative sociopathic beyond crazy bitch I was completely taken by surprise and moved, actually shocked, over and over. My growing disgust, yet morbid eager curiosity about what made her tick, so to speak, kept me hurrying back for more. When I thought she could not be any more insane she revealed another hefty dose of crazy. This woman added a whole new meaning to the word insane.
Learn, understand, then decide whether you accept or reject.
This is a story about a wife who disappears, leaving her husband to take the blame for her disappearance, and throughout the book it keeps you wondering what is wrong with those two twisted individuals.
The two narrators do a great job in delivering the husband's actions and the wife's journal entries. The profanities might have been too much, except it works here. And the two narrators do a great job in bringing the characters to life in a way that I rarely see in other audiobook stories.
What was all the hype about? Got my credit back, so bad I didn't even finish it!
disliked all the characters, the story dragged on & the narrators sucked too. I understand back stories & character development , I read the millennium trilogy the longest character development & back story ever- however, I loved the protagonist unlike these main characters. I've listened to audio books for almost 2 decades ( midnight in the garden of good & evil, memoirs of a geisha, ann rice , Clive Cussler, even Harry potter & more) this was awful! I'm not even going to bother seeing the movie.
The story is about a bickering couple advertised as a really good mystery novel. The end was predictable and underwhelming, but the story was well written.
This was an excellent book and I enjoyed it very much. However I did not like the ending. It just leaves you hanging.
I would absolutely recommend this audio book to a friend or anyone! Not only was the story written well by Gillian Flynn it was also told well by the narrators. This was the first audio book I've listened to and the bar has been set high. I've listened to a few others since this one and nothing has compared.
The plot kept me guessing and wanting to know more. I wanted to listen to this book even when it was inconvenient for me to do so. The characters were relatable and disturbing all rolled into one. It was ridiculous.
I thought the performances by these narrators were very powerful. I plan on looking up other books they've narrated because of how great they did.
There were many moments in this book that moved me. Almost all of them would be spoilers in a way. Almost all of Amy's perspective was moving.
My favorite book written by Gillian Flynn.
