The narrators were good.
But the book itself is a bleak depressing tale about terrible immoral people with a villain (it will take you a while to figure out who that is) who is unrealistically, umm, villainous. There is no humor here, nothing redeeming about the characters.
The start fooled me. I thought this book was going to be phenomenal. But it got really bad around halfway through. I wish I had stopped listening then, because while things got more interesting later, it didn't get *better*. I wanted a thriller, not a horror story. This book has made me paranoid and I'm not even exaggerating.
I loved that there were two narrators for this book. It really allowed you to get inside each characters head and view things from their stance. The book in itself was fantastic, such a dark tale. I found a lot of common ground with each character in a way that made them seem so much like every married couple until you get deeper. When bombshell plot twist are dropped they are done in a way that you don't see them coming till it's too late. Which I like. I hate predictable. Even the ending threw me.
Keeps you on the edge of your seat. So good you cant stop listening until you know what happens.
Yes. It started a little slow and then it took off.
YES! I have already done so. It was referred to me by my daughter. All she would tell me is "just wait Mom..just keep reading".
It kept me going...I listened every chance I got!
Loved both equally! Amy is a mess!
It pissed me off, but in a good way!
Not possible to say
Narrator was ok
all of them
I skipped through most of the story but in the end I was still left feeling it was a complete waste of time.
I don't understand the hype about this book. I found nothing appealing about any of the characters. The husband is a jerk right from the start and the wife doesn't stand up for herself. The book is filled with trite writing and cliches. I listen while I drive and I mentally imagine physically throwing the book out the window; if only I could. I am only continuing to listen so I can find out if it gets any better and to see what happens in the end. I wish it would hurry up and get there. I might give up and just go see the movie.
all of them.
While I did guess some of the outcomes in this book, most of the twists I never saw coming, but I believed every bit of it. It felt so real and was so exciting, I didn't want to turn it off. Very well done.
Also, the two narrators were perfect in every way. It made it even more realistic hearing their voices change with the mood of their thoughts, and as their characters evolved.
