Well, It is after 3am & I have just finished this book. Wow! Talk about a page turner. I literally could not stop until I got to the end. This story is so full of twists & turns & deliciously demented characters.
The story was really well written. Usually I can see the path the story will take before the third chapter, but this book kept me on my toes. The narrators were captivating as well. Really a great listen!
The author took such a unique approach, and it really worked well!
If I closed my eyes I could imagine being at a live performance. I believe this is what it felt like to hear the radio plays before television became so popular.
The story was so riveting, that I couldn't point to one particular moment.
Truly one of my favorite books now. I highly recommend it!
Dark, surprising perfection.
I could not walk away from this book- the plot was so delicately etched I can't give away anything but for me it is now a must read for my friends. I rarely leave reviews but I couldn't stand the though of someone on the fence and then missing out. It's a bit twisted, if that isn't your thing I can understand some of the negative reviews. But if you are hesitating at all, listen to it, you won't regret it.
Yes, I am currently doing so. Why? Well it's the kind of book that you want to relive again and possibly find new small details that make it just different enough that you enjoy it just as much as the first time around. I honestly didn't want it to end.
Amy, I couldn't stop wanting to know more...
This book kept me on the edge of the driver's seat .. I couldn't stop listening!,,,
Hearing the story in the first person from each character was key.....just as I started hating one character, the voice changed and I had the chance to hate the other, lol!
Both brilliantly played, I have to say that Julia's rendition of Amy made me love to hate her....
Definitely a "page turner", loved every minute.

There are not many mystery/thrillers that I have read which have kept me guessing. This one did. Just when I thought I knew where the plot was going, here comes a curve ball. Right up until the end I had to keep picking my jaw up off the ground. I could not believe the twists and turns. Excellent listen.
It grasps you in a deliciously addicting and somewhat morbid fashion and then it lets go.
I have never been much of a reader until I discovered Audible!!!!
Julia does a superb job! I love the way the she reads in different tones for all of "Amy's characters" while still being recognized as Amy.
Not for the first two parts, you need a little time to think about what has happened and appreciate how clever this book is.
I demand a re-write for the end. That just sucked! The story was so detailed so many twists, so unpredictable. You couldn't even guess what was coming next. Then the third part... rush rush rush. It felt like Ms. Flynn was told she had to fit 25,000 words into a 1000 word essay. The end could have been so much better had there been more substance to it. I guess she left an opening for another book, maybe. I just couldnt believe that was it.
I got about halfway through, and I thought I'd figured it out. I thought I knew "who-dunnit". But I was only halfway, so what else could happen? Well, part two took off like a rocket ship. I think the situation was best described by the lawyer when he said, "You are the two most f**ked up people I've ever met, and I specialize in f**ked up people." I didn't really like the ending, but the author very cleverly set up the story so that you wanted some sort of revenge scenario because that was what the book was all about! Very clever. Great story.
