Yes, the voice acting was amazing!
I thought the ending although keeping with the book was kind of a lame. I think the Author took the easy way out. I'm conflicted, although I see where she's coming from I didn't think it had the gravitas required to make folks satisfied with the ending.
The book is a good read but some may be disappointed with the ending, I know I was. That being said I would recommend.
The narrators read so slowly it is hard to focus on the story. The story builds up and you think there is a good ending coming and it is a bland and uninteresting ending. I have no idea how this book ended up on the best sellers list, it was awful and a waste of a credit.
read so slowly
First of all, the readers were irritating. Kirby Heyborne's pronunciation was so slowly precise as to sound silly most of the time. Julia Whelan bordered on the same, but not to Heyborne's extreme. Regarding the story, it was weak. And, after sticking it out for hours of poor narration, the ending was very disappointing. Overall, somewhat entertaining, but probably not worth the time invested.
freakin unbelievably awesome
The dark sides of the characters were expressed exquisitely!
I can't tell you....it would be a spoiler
Just buy it......you wont be sorry
I loved how Ms. Flynn led you to believe it was a predictable plot but then did something quite surprising with that predictability.
Could not put it down.
To get a better idea of my background. I am a working class white male in my forties. I love good fiction, and I love smart books. I have drifted towards a lot of European writers like Reginald Hill, Val McDermid.,Etc....
I gave it a high review for the overall book. It had the usual weirdness I come to expect and enjoy with a book by Gillian Flynn. She wrote a great story - Though I had a little bit of a hard time listening to this one at times. I love long books - But this one could have been shortened a little. If this is your first book by her. Get this one first. The story will probably throw you for a loop. Then go back and read her other stories. You'll be floored.
I enjoyed the twisted plot; thought the narration was good, and liked how the story keeps your interest to the end...but thought the ending was a little weak. Still a good read, though.
The best thing about the book was how it kept you guessing right to the end.
I don't know if I really didn't like the ending or just didn't want it to end. It was crazy good.
Performances were very good. Story is very well written. You love to hate the characters. I really wasn't very happy with the ending (last plot twist). I really wanted a different ending for the characters.
the two narrators were excellent and gave their individual characters to the two protagonists
Close - but probably Amy because of all her twists and turns
