The beginning was slows so the real story didn't start until chapter 18. However it is quite unpredictable and it keeps you going. The narrators are decent except that Amy makes a horrible man impersonation.
This story placed me through a maze of whodunit!? Around one turn could it be the husband? Another turn...The sister?...and when the turns were expected to go in one direction it takes another. With character flaws and a bit of crazy personalities this was a great read. Believe the hype this is well worth the excitement.
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.
