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.
The narration was fine.
The movie was a far cry from the details of the book but I suppose that is i ally the case. However, something was missing, there is an ending of course but I feel like it leaves you hanging.
I'd give it a 4.5 star review if it were an option. Each chapter definitely leaves you wanting more.
the differing voices for Amy and Nick/female and male speaker
Julia Whelan - Amy!
The ending! the book is way more impressive than the movie...also the part where she explains that she'd actually kill herself!
