I hated this book. I thought the audio recording with the two different narrators was nice but the story was very predictable. As soon as I heard it was "suspenseful and unpredictable" it was easy to predict what the "shocking" parts would be. There is no hero, no sympathetic character you want to root for. Both the husband and wife are despicable people. I was very disappointed in this book.
The ending is disappointing because Nick turns out to be a character not worth investing your time in.
I liked their narration. Very well done!
disappointment growing for all the choices Nick makes. And at the end, well I want to shake Nick and ask him, "Why??" It was just frustrating...
The plot gets a little unbelievable. Where do these people live that neighbours cannot see someone loading up a shed full of stuff? Also, no one can be so self conscience as to act as he did, even in the face of a tragedy. He smiled for the cameras, not once but twice... REALLY??
This book was a Facebook recommendation. I have to say, it was one of the most entertaining reads I've listened to in a long time! The story was very well paced with twists and turns and layers coming at you left and right. The narrators were just great, especially Julia, in the way she was able to create the different sides of her character. I listen to books while driving to work and I was sitting in my driveway all week because I couldn't stop listening. I have to say I would have written a different ending but that didn't take away from the overall thrill of this book.
Super picky but in love with reading!!! I simply love good storytelling!
Well, this book started out really really great, and it wasnt a bad book at all as you will see through my rating, but the only reason i didnt give it a 5 star rating is that it seemed to drag on for a bit too long. Other than that, I loved it, its an awesome mystery that keeps you guessing through the whole book. Just when you think you know whats going to happen, something different happens. It turns out that you may not know the people you think you know around you at all.
Yes. Such a great story with alot of twists
Yes. When you think you have it figured out you don't
Lover of old (and some new) books
I cannot think of another quite like it.
very easy to listen to - the perfect amount of drama in their voices.
Don't miss it!
Gillian Flynn is capable of anything. I laughed, cried, sat amazed at my desk and honestly felt cold sweats on a dozen different occasions. I would love a charter one minute and hate them the next. This book has me considering a background check on my wife after 6 years of marriage. Loved and feared it.
This book kept me interested and guessing the whole time. I really didn't feel like I knew for sure what was going to happen even up to the last chapter! One thing to consider is that the psyche of the two characters in the book is very disturbing so if you are squeamish or easily bothered (not by blood and gore but by the darkness inside a person's mind) then this is not the book for you.
Yes. Mesmerizing twists & surprises.
The obvious surprise that she wasn't really "gone" except mentally.
The confusion, the despair, the traps...
