I read the reviews of this book and a lot of people said how it was very dark. This built up my expectations too much so that I was actually disappointed with the story. It is not that dark. Maybe it will be for you but maybe not. I am not sorry that I purchased it but I wish I did not have any preconceptions before I started. Hope you enjoy if you decide to purchase.
I loved the way the male and female voices went back and forth as they told Nick and Amy's story. After all the hype the book received, I was excited to see where the story led me. It didn't take me long to get bored. The first part of the book dragged and I almost stopped listening three or four times. But I had already invested so much time in the book, I felt like I had to keep going. I do have to say that I predicted the twist. (I had seen this in a long ago episode of The Young and the Restless soap opera.) Even so, the details were mind boggling. So I kept listening. And then came the end. What a disappointment. It's as if someone told Ms. Flynn, "you have 10 minutes to finish the book" and so she flew to the end. It ended so flat. So, nineteen hours and fourteen minutes later, I can say that I read "Gone Girl," but I can't tell you why.
Loved the book, couldn't stop listening, but was really disappointed with the ending. However, I would absolutely recommend, we can't all like the ending :)
I would absolutely read another book by this author & these narrorators.
I have not read or listened to this but my wife did and my adult daughter is, and they both say the same thing "it pisses them off". So, just a warning to y'all.
