Yes I would think about but I did not care for Gone Girl
If I could I would return it after hearing it. I did not like it
I have only listened to the audio book but I will be purchasing the kindle version as well!!
The whole book!!!!
All of them. They all fit into the story perfectly!
The realization of what was happening!!!!
Very good book! Loved the characters and story line. Very good ending but was hoping for more!!!
The double narration was a plus. Julia Whelan did such a great job, it made me seek out other books that she has narrated. Took me a while to warm up to Kirby Heyborne's narration b/c his voice did not match that of the character as I had imagined, but I got used to it. A very good job overall.
workingmomof2. Lots of driving time = many Audio books
The story is well written, details fill spaces so that you can see the events and people and with that, your dislike turns to discomfort to revulsion. The character is so far gone into sociopathic behavior - there is nothing left to feel but that you never want to meet them and wonder if you already have met someone like that. Ugh - it was so dark and disturbing, I was happy to finish.
It is too slow, just doesn't capture your attention
It's just too stupid to listen to
all that back and forth, it loses the story
I acnnot believe that this is suppose to be a Best Seller!
I should have looked into what this book was about, because I was not able to suspend my horror, at how awful the characters were....I started out so hopeful, I thought it was a love story. Reminds me of when I first saw Pulp Fiction, thinking it was going to be fun, and left thinking what a horrific movie....years later and a couple of times re-watching it, I get it. I need forewarning, to prepare myself for those instances when I am supposed to just go along for the ride and be entertained. I am a vicarious reader/watcher so I am troubled when I expect one thing and get another. Lesson learned with this book...I don't want to know too much, but I do need to know it is a twisted thriller, and not a lovely little story about two people and the ups and downs of matrimony.
Very much recommended. This book had moments that made me laugh, made me angry, make me self-reflective, and made me sit in my car listening in my driveway each day when I got home from work.
Kirby lends a voice to the story that makes you trust the character and then not trust the character. Julia's voice is also very attractive and absolutely perfect for the character.
I am not bothered that the story in this book is sick. What bothered me was the tediousness of it all. About half way through I found myself wanting a terrorist to appear and blow up the entire town. It was difficult to like any of the characters and I would have loved a War of the Roses ending for Nick and Amy. But I stuck with it just to see how it ended and was met with disappointment. Glad to put this one behind me.
I have not but both were excellent narrators. They made the story bearable.
The book starts out incredibly slow and uneventful, but picks up steam until you're constantly wondering whodunnit. Both of the main characters are twisted in their own way and I wish she would have capitalized on that to make a better ending. She seems to just leave the story hanging without its last chapter.
Great narration, overall good production.
But wait, there's more....
The other reviews are right. This is the most twisted story of a marriage and relationship I have ever read. "a marriage gone toxically wrong", is an understatement. If you think the plot is seeming predictable, keep listening, you're probably wrong! Entertaining but very disturbing at the same time.
