I never read the actual book.
The story line was COMPLETELY unpredictable and took so many turns. It was suspenseful, well written and very well read. It was excellent
They do a phenomenal job putting the appropriate amount of emotion into their readings. It felt like watching a movie. So enjoyable.
I'm a diehard Game of Thrones listener, and this is the only book that has been as remotely satisfying, and somehow surpassed all pleasure gleaned from other audible delights.
Amy - because she is so great. No, she is a jerk. No, she is brilliant. I love to hate her.
Delightful as expected of Julia. This was my first time listening to Kirby and he pulled it off like a champ.
I couldn't stop listening. The turns were wild and unexpected. I couldn't put it down.
Best audible experience yet.
Say something about yourself!
Being unabridged this definitely started out slow. After about 9 hours it picked up and from there was a cliffhanger. I like how there was both female and male narrators for both protagonists. The narrators were definitely a good fit for the parts.
Gone girl was great, there were many turns of events to keep you changing your mind about the characters, not just the main two but all characters. My only reason for not giving it five stars was that it could have ended much sooner than it did, it seemed to drag on at the end for no reason and it was already super long to begin with. Narration was excellent, albeit a little off putting that the female narrator would deepen her voice to sound like a guy and vice versa with the male narrator it was a tiny bit distracting.

Could not see anything coming...the twists and turns were sensational and horrifying. The plot(s) were relentless, yet believable. Not sure if I want to date, marry or ever commit again. 😕
The characters Amy & Nick are so well written & constructed that the reader (listener) could swear they actually exist in situ. Here is the arc of a fairy tale marriage which comes apart not at the seams but with the rips & tears of well-aimed punches & reluctant counterpunches. Original & unforgettable, it asks how well can we really know another & offers up a most brutal answer.
