Good storyline with a real twist that left me surprised as the ending wound down. I admit I had a different closure in mind. I really wish the characters in the book had a cleaner vocabulary; that much vulgarity is a definite detraction for me.
While the mechanics - the quality of the writing and the recording were quite good, I found the story to be so implausible as well as nasty spirited and twisted that, for myself, I found no value in reading/listening to this kind of content. I wish I had known more about the story before choosing this title. I kept listening hoping for some kind of redeeming moment, some point at which good prevails, but alas....
Completely my fault - lesson learned.
This is my first book from this author. I actually really liked the story line! My big complaint-slash-dislike is the level of cursing. It actually shocked me that it bothered me so much, I am generally not a prude, nor do I cringe at vulgarity. The level of vulgarity in the book however was more than even I could handle. It occurred so often and got so extreme, that it genuinely started to ruin the book for me.
It had a classic anti hero. This was not the usual mystery and the story owes its success to that fact.
Lots of surprises and would have never guessed at the outcome. Those are the best mysteries to me. I also have a habit of reading books before the movie. The movie would have spoiled the book completely and now I am really ready to see the movie.
Amy's gone but where's the body?
Great writing style. Reads almost as if its scripted with first him being the narrator and then her narrating. This style keeps you unsettled which is good. It's nice to have them keep you guessing.
