Maybe. Depends on how many hours.
Good story, but one book too long. The story was not worthy of 19 hours.
Interesting premise, good twists, descriptive narrative but the characters were very one dimensional is some respects. This could be because of the plot and the direction she was taking the reader but I found it hard to get interested. Usually even the most despicable person has a trait you can identify with, feel sympathy toward or minimally like. Maybe it's just me but in this book, I didn't like anyone. Nick, Go and their family, unlikeable. Amy and her parents, unlikeable. Friends, cops, incidental cast, unlikeable. Everyone was self centered, self absorbed, vindictive and moved only in the direction of their own agenda. I purchased three of her books at the same time and this is the first one I've listened to. I hope the others are better.
The is one of the best books I've read. I couldn't put it down! Very clever, suspenseful and whitty. The book is pretty vulgar and shocking at times. Although the book is dark it made me laugh too. I would recommend it for sure! I liked it so much I picked up her next book, " Dark Places " almost immediately after finishing this one!
Yes, I loved this book. Kept me on my toes!
When I realized that she planned everything and was actually alive.
The ending, period was the least, nothing the best.
I listened to this book for two days straight and made it priority to get to the end because I was that intrigued but once I did I was disappointed. I can't believe I wasted so much time & energy for it to end the way it did.
This is an interesting book, with quite a few twists and turns. It's definitely unexpected and clever. Many times during the listen, I could imagine how this would unfold as a movie. However, if a movie is made, they'd definitely change the ending. I really liked this book, but probably wouldn't read again because I know how things resolve. Also, not a book to have rolling in the car with the kiddos, because the language rivals an R rated movie. Glad I finally got to hear this book as it's been on my list for a while.
Definitely. With the movie in the making, I can put a face on the character.
Part two was the turning point but the ending was unexpected, never see it coming. (Don't wanna give anything away)
I'm usually critical of the narration but this one gets me going. Love them both, they brought the characters to life.
Hope the movie do it justice.
Both the story and the personalities were too twisted for me, and the ending was unsatisfactory. I was enticed by positive reviews to give this a try, and I'm glad I listened. Just can't say I enjoyed it a lot. Kept waiting for the ultimate clever twist, which didn't happen.
Just reached professional level!
Yes, most definitely. I'm not much of a murder mystery girl but Ms. Flynn has elevated this genera with such a eloquently and classily written novel. I was hooked in only a few minutes. The twists were jaw dropping. Interesting and entertaining.
The different voices that were used to tell the story.
They flowed as if truly unscripted.
This book was so captivating, and such a mind-f**k. I loved the husband, then the wife, then no one, and then both of them again in a chilling fearful way. Like I wasn't supposed to love them, but I couldn't help it. They are just AMAZING. For those of you who've read/listened this book, or about to read/listen to this book... you'll understand... and you'll understand what AMAZING really is.
If you can take a break for this book, I envy you. I sat completely captivated, and sick to my stomach with anticipation.
