Absolutely. I'm sure there are details I missed because I didn't know which direction it was going....a good thing!
The surprising twists. You think you know one thing...then the next chapter you realize you're totally wrong.
Entertaining and enjoyable. The actor/actress that did the voice were FABULOUS! What talent!
The writing was very good and the story line was addictive.... but everything else about this book was horrid, the characters were the worst kind of people, so completely unlikable. Defiantly not a feel good read!
This is the first time I have taken the time to leave a review. If you are looking for mystery and suspense I think you will be disappointed. This book is more of a drama between two disfunctional individuals. I kept waiting for something to happen but it never did. The majority of the 19 hours of this book happens over a 10 day time span. Slow moving to say the least. I guess you could say that the author pulls you in because I obviously listened to the entire book waiting for something big to happen. The narrators did do a great job and were pleasant to listen to. Unless you are interested in hearing 19 hours about the main characters messed up lives don't bother.
I love, Love this Book. It was so well read.
I made me say AWE and uwe alot
Different plot changed my mind on the ending a few times. Hard for me to "figure it out"
Yes. Changed options a few times.
Good basic read. Different than what I've been reading lately. Not too deep not too fluffy.
It had my attention from the get go. I finished listening in record time.
This was an easy book to listen to and get caught up in. There were unexpected twits and turns. You knew something was up, but often not what you thought it was. I was LOVING the book in the beginning.
In the middle of the book, there were places that if you were reading, you'd skim through. I kept waiting for it to go back to the mystery of the beginning.
Overall I liked the book a lot, until the end. I was extremely disappointed with the ending. You felt like saying to the author, "Really? After all that, this is the end?" But having said that, it was generally a good listen.
So, I would give the first part of the book 5 stars, the middle, 4 stars, and the end 3 stars
This is the book of the year, in my opinion. Gillian Flynn has written such a clever and unique story that it makes one realize the "sameness" of today's fiction. Nick and Amy tell their story and the performances in audio are terrific. This is a must read ... or, rather, a "must listen to".
I rarely listen to or read a book that makes me audibly *gasp*, but Gone Girl did just that. It was a great book and the narration made it even better. Loved the "voices" of both husband & wife. Excellent!
