Having an ending that didn't make you sorry you ever spent time slogging through the book.
Not a book by this author.
A very unique writing style with interesting twists to the story. The author plays with your emotions because what you think is happening isn't what is really happening. Then at the end when the story line should coalesce into something satisfactory, the author ends the story in a way that is makes one sorry they ever spent time reading it.
Yes. She portrays a victim who is not, shows a damaged woman, with all odds against her, finding justice of a kind. Also, the book is thrilling & characters behaviours make sense.
Uplifting in a way. Courage shown.
Will spoil the story.
Several, again don't want to ruin this book for those yet to read it.
Get this book, get all Ms. Flynn's books. You will be most pleased, I believe, with your purchase.
The main characters are beyond irritating, which I suppose they were meant to be. I did not want to hear one more thing about either of them. The story had interesting twists and turns, but nothing could make me like anything about it.
The performance successfully portrayed the insipid annoying characters.
I really liked this book. It was full of suspense, and very twisty. Just when I thought I had figured it out, Flynn threw in another curve ball. I highly recommend it. The narrating was also very well done.
I have no idea. It was just so predictable AND, for the most part, boring.
No- love mystery and suspense novels but this was the worst book in that genre that I have ever listened to,
They were excellent and depicted these characters very well.
Disgust. There was not one likeable character in the whole book, the story line dragged on and on.
I am asking audible for a credit on this selection. I did not finish it because I could not find one redeeming quality about the book, the characters or the plot.
I don't usually read main-stream fiction/crime genre but this book changed my mind about the genre - it was awesome! I can't wait for the movie.
I love a great story.
I'm no prude, but after the 300th F-Bomb - enough already! It starts to grate on the nerves and becomes distracting to the story. Up until the last three chapters, I found the story thoroughly entertaining. The ending was jarringly disappointing and anti-climatic and I could totally go off on a jag about why I have a problem with the ending but I don't want to spoil the ending for anybody. Up until the last three chapters, I was recommending the book to all my friends and co-workers and, now that I'm finished, I have mixed feelings of the 'eh' variety. Gillian Flynn is an excellent writer! I enjoyed her wit and excellent storytelling and, overall, I think she needs to immerse herself in a Quentin Tarentino movie marathon to find out how to pack a massive satisfying belly-full of punch at the end of her story!
