Yes. For too many reasons to list. Just do it.
I hated them all. They made me want to scream. But I couldn't put them down - which made me also want to scream.
Voices were dead on perfect and the emotion (or lack of) was perfectly conveyed in their reading.
Who knows, I was on the edge of my seat having fits of rage and panic.
I wanted to not like this book. I'm not a trendjumping sort of reader and that is probably stupid. It is the reason I didn't start reading Harry Potter until the 3rd book which I feel silly about, now, but it seemed reasonable at the time. Everyone has been talking about Gone Girl. Gone Girl this, Gone Girl that. I felt certain it was at least partly hype. I was so wrong. I really couldn't put it down.
Less filthy language, less sophomoric descriptive phrases,
dramatic, conveys emotions well
I would cut the scenes with the main characters father.
This author should take a page from Author, Ann Rule "If you really loved me" and learn how to portray the true nature of the sociopath with all of the suspense and horror they perpetrate on others without the filthy language. That is not indicative of intelligent people. As my Mother used to say when you use nasty language it just shows you have a poor vocabulary. Not such a good thing for an author.
The characters were SO unlikeable that I found I didn't care what happened to them!
annoying adequate average
The plot's not bad, it's just that I had no interest in the characters.
This book made me feel as manipulated as the characters. I guess that was the point, but for my listening pleasure, it missed the mark.
Has it turned me off from this genre? No, but I will be a little bit more careful about reading reviews before I commit.
They were annoying.
Can't think of any.
I understand why this is a best seller - it is clever and smart and the characters are well developed. The narration is great. I found it painful to listen and would have stopped listening if it had not been my book group's choice that month. I found reading about two so completely dysfunctional people stressful and not enjoyable in the least. I do not recommend to people who have ever had trouble in their relationships. If you like clever books about unpleasant people this one's for you.
Once it took off after they declared (spoiler**) she was missing there was a twist at every turn. I couldn't stop listening because just when I thought I knew who it was I was wrong.
Most memorable was when (spoiler**) she first appeared in the story!
I LOVED that there were two narrators so that I didn't have to pretend a female was reading a male's side. I loved their back and forth sides of the story.
Yes and No- it was perfect because I couldn't wait to listen to it when I was not able to.
This story had several twists so it kept me listening. It gets a little out there- like something on the ID channel! Entertaining!
Gone Girl was amazing. After I finished listening I bought Gillian Flynn's other novels, what a fantastic mystery writer!
Started devouring books at age 7 and haven't stopped since... Now I can read while I drive, do dishes, clean the house, or work in garden!
An incredible book. Along with the characters, you navigate the twists and turns of a very, very complicated relationship. Absolutely nothing is as it seems - and the final outcome is as inevitable as it is disturbing.
I tried to like this book. I listened to it for hours and hours and it never got good and it just never ended. I finally gave up in the middle of part 3 about an hour and a half from the end. So relieved to finally be able to move on to another book.
