I could not stop listening to this. Good thing I was on vacation most of the time. My 23 year old daughter recommended it to me and I am almost 60. We both loved it.
The narration goes back and forth between the husband's voice and the missing wife's voice through diaries. Fascinating.
Many plots twists. Some fantastic adjectives that really paint a picture. I don't know if this is Gillian Flynn's only book, but I am going to check.
No. The story was interesting, but I found it a bit "over the top."
Lots of projection.
Don't remember that I had one.
No extreme reaction. Just, "Really?"
Not my type of story. Interesting enough, but not a page-turner for me.
The ending was so disappointing. I prefer stories in which characters get what's coming to them. Instead, the poor child will probably end up as screwed up as the parents.
Fabulous! The first part of the book was a bit tedious but it sets the foundation for the roller coaster. Its the chug chug chug up the incline and then BAM you tip over the top and WOW! Perfectly done.
This was an entertaining crime novel that did make me want to keep reading, though if I'd lost the book I may not have re-purchased it. I liked it, and it will be a somewhat entertaining film, but am puzzled about those who put it on lists of the best 100 books, best books of the year and so on. The outcome is just not that original, the plot has been written before, the characters are not special. It is a pretty good read, but not fine literature by any means.
Wait, what?, Damn!!!
Most memorable was the first point in the story and there were so many turns when I thought I knew....and I didn't.
Don't fall in love too soon!
good, great, then WHAT?
Julia was amazing. She brought Amy to life in a way that made you really like and hate her. Kirby didn't do a lot for me.
The ending was good and bad all at the same time. I am anxious to see the movie since Gillian wrote the screenplay for it. I'm curious to see if she will end the movie the same way she ended the book. If that is the case, I don't see the movie doing well at the box office.
The best so far.
The two narrators.
In search for another as good.
This story was so far out there I could never connect to it. Great narrators and good performance of the book. Liked the references to current issues and news shows. The book moves slowly and the couple is completely ridiculously unhealthy and its unbelievable to think anyone would willingly live that way.
Experiencing the twists and turns of not just the story but the characters. I lover her… I hate her. I love him…I hate him until finally I’m too exhausted and numb to have an opinion or any other feeling than immense regret that the story was over yet a tiny bit of relief that I was finally released from this mad house of a book.
Amazing Amy. Is it wrong to say that she is kind of my hero? Well except for the murder part of course.
Excellent performance by both actors!
See answer to question one
The only thing more Impressive than this story is the mind that thought it up. Ms. Flynn you are “amazing!” I look forward to the many other stories you’ll blow my mind with.
