Murderous marital mystery
Can't think of any.
Amy seduced back to life by adroitly lying spouse.
Duelling spiteful spouses
Didn't like the voices that much at first, but soon realized that they're perfect for the characters they portrayed - something too self satisfied just below the surface. Great voice acting. Couldn't wait to take my walk each day, to get back to the story.
This was my first reading of a Flynn novel; and now I am reading her other books. I particularly liked her craft in plotting and pacing out information. That makes her stand out in the genre. The characters have a strong well crafted voice. The writing is effective but elegant.
Toward the ending for me things got a bit hazy, characters became caricatures and bit by bit every storyline that up until the end never felt as 'plot', became a bit forced.

I had trouble getting into the story because I didn't like any of the characters... at first. It gets better about a third of the way in and then you can't put it down.
Mom, wife, attorney and aspiring writer. Absolutely love a good mystery or suspense novel.
I have read Flynn's previous novels but downloaded this one to listen to while I work out. Very much enjoyed the plot twists and the alternating creepy vs. romantic vibe. The story is told from the viewpoints of Amy and Nick, a married couple set to celebrate their 5th wedding anniversary when Amy goes missing. Not only does each chapter alternate from Amy and Nick's viewpoint, but they also alternate present time, beginning on the morning that Amy goes missing (Nick's POV) and flashbacks to when they first met and their romance developed (Amy's POV). Definitely a story that keeps you guessing and involved. The overarching question throughout the book - was Nick involved in Amy's disappearance? I'm only sad that there are no other Flynn novels to read or listen to.
As far as the actual performance, I found the narrators to be quite good with the exception of voicing a hispanic female cop that interacts with Nick.
The alternating viewpoints made it very compelling.
The narrators captured the characters perfectly.
Wanted to but too long to do so. I couldn't wait to get back to it though.
Yes, and have recommended to others. Emotional merry go round.
Just when you think you know someone . . .
The listening experience only made it better. Liked the girl/guy thing instead of one person trying to be both.
The narrators absolutely became the 2 characters in my mind - especially Julia. Well done!
Couldn't wait to get back to it each time.
I was so bored - it went on and on and on.....
I enjoy listening to the voices of the characters in the book, both Amy and Nick are excellent.
I haven't finished the book and really hate for it to end. Every listening session seems to reveal a surprise and it's all believable.
I like Julia because I can relate to Amy.
I want to tell my friends about the book but hate to say too much and spill the beans!
I thought it was a very good story to listen to. Kept me interested the entire book!!
Their acting ability to bring the characters to life, very good.
No not really, I use my audio books to walk and bike with and I like it when one story is something to look forward to while working out.
