i enjoyed this book a lot. Just when i thought it was going to be so predictable it went off in a completely surprising direction...and not just once! It was well worth the listen.
I kept waiting for something to happen- and it did- about halfway through the book. The story is somewhat predictable-- but not enough for me not to recommend it. There are a lot of crazy people out there.
I would definitely change the direction of the book. I would change the ending. I would have a hero. Every book needs a satisfactory ending. This book lacked that element.
Not yet. There are too many other authors I'd prefer to read.
I enjoyed Book 1 and part of Book 2 the best. I enjoyed how the collapse of Nick and Amy's marriage was described and some of the asides about our current culture.
I would just say that it's a very long listen for something that turns out so badly (for me).
I'd have to put it in the top three.
I had no idea where the author was going with this. I love that!
While I thoroughly enjoyed both performances, Julia was just so convincing as the victimized wife, then equally adept as the psycho wife. What a challenging role!
No. Could not stand narrators.
Different narrators. I will have to read this. Listening irritated me.
Love this book, at least most of it. Riveting, could not wait to get into my car to listen. Ending was weak and left obvious lead in for sequal.
readers who enjoy current slang and messy dialog
I like my writing much tighter
probably not, certainly not on purpose but as I said the narration doesn't seem to fit the character, perhaps Ms/Mr Flynn is excellent in a different genre
Others seem to love this book; I can only speak for myself. I couldn't buy the story or the narrator.
The twist. Never saw it coming and it was brilliant. As they say - things are not always what they seem....
Nick. I couldn't decide whether I loved him or hated him. In the end I just pitied him.
They brought the characters to life. Fabulous narration.
Gone Girl was one of the more captivating listens. I listened in the car, in the yard, in the kitchen, in the bathroom, just about everywhere, it was that enthrallilng.
The author gave just enough foreshadowing to keep you on the edge of your seat but not enough to give away anything.
Favorite or most emotional? I had to stop what I was doing when **spoiler alert** Amy came home and started making up this crazy story about being held hostage, because I was so mad at her I was yelling as if Nick could hear me, "She's lying,she's evil! Don't believe her!"
I just started hating Amy with a passion! I started yelling at her while the narrator was reading her part.
Highly recommended for anyone who really wants to get involved in a story.
