The story and the narrators
When you realize who Amy is.
When Amy was pissed that her husband did not like who she really was. She pretended to have a different type of personality for the first few years of the marriage and when she decided to stop acting and be herself she was so mad that he did not love the real "Amy". It show her delusions perfectly. If she would have been herself when they first met, then Nick would never have married her; and somehow this is HIS fault!
The end. When you think he finally has her....then BAM!
Overall this was an excellent book. It did start out a little slow for me but at least it was still and interesting slow read. When the book begins to take-off, its hard to put down.
I am a journalist and editor. I help people write personal, persuasive essays. It's fun work!
Yes, to see what I missed the first time. No spoiler alert here, but this book made me gasp out loud at one point. You think you know what's going on at several points, but you never really do.
Yes! You never quite know whose story to believe. Even when one of the narrators tells you that he/she is lying, you don't know what to believe. It's almost like you are a character in the story and they are each trying to convince you of something.
You never know what goes on in other people's marriages.
I heard Reese Witherspoon has bought the rights and might produce this. She'd be an excellent Amy!
Yes, The Audio edition was great.
The story was so interesting and full of puzzles to solve and think of.
"Amy" was my favorite character by Julia Whelan.
The Perfect Crime.
Wow! I have listened and read at least a thousand books. But can Not ever remember wanting to scream out loud to please stop!!! And I mean this in a good way. I got to a point where I just wanted the Madness, nightmare, delusions to Stop. So Twisted, mind bendingly evil.
None I couldn't befriend any of them. I dread even thinking that people like this exist, but realise they must. That's why this novel if so brilliant.
They are perfect, perfect, perfect! They pull you in, noooo they suck you into the deceit. You want to love one and hate the other, but then it flips. Then you don't like either of them. I swear by the end I thought I was loosing my mind.
This book is so physiologically mind crippling that a film couldn't put all the emotionally disturbed twists together this perfectly. No way in hell, could it be done.
I want to recommend this book to everyone, but I can't because some people really, just should Not read it. Honestly if you've ever been severely emotionally tramatized in a relationship, this may be way too much. My not so bad, not perfect 30 yr marriage even seems creepy after reading this one.
I might recommend this book depending on the friend. It takes a while to get adjusted to all of the bickering and back and forth.
I don't think I would. I wasn't very invested in the characters. The twists were good but they'd be better if I cared more about the characters.
No, I have not listened to their other narrations but this narration was very good. Good voices, cadence, accents.
The thing that I would change can't be changed and have the book be the same book. The first part of this book was very slow and then part 2 is absolutely explosive. So, I might be tempted to say that part one should be trimmed down or something, but then part 2 wouldn't be as explosive.
I found the very end just a bit dissatisfying, but still definitely worth the read.
I didn't really care about either protagonist. Then again, I don't think the reader is supposed to 'like' the characters. They are created to be pretty unlikeable people.
I don't think that what made this book awesome (namely the plot twist the different points of view of the two main characters) could be conveyed very well in a visual format. I'd still probably see it anyway.
I've read so many reviews that said it got better halfway through. I was expecting it to slightly improve and then it would dawn on me that it had gotten better. Not the case. This book got suddenly and instantaneously awesome. I had just gotten to that point when I pulled into the driveway on my way home. Can I drive around the block for an hour?
In the mystery category, this book ranks extremely high for plot, writing and narration.
This was a first listern for these narrators - they are both excellent, and make the story come to life.
Don't let the beginning fool you - I kept hearing "Ripped from the Headlines" in my head. The image of Scott Peterson accompanying that thought. But just when I had muttered my last "Ho Hum", wow - I got blindsided with a plot I never saw coming. Woo Hoo, what a ride. Stick with through, and you won't be disappointed.
I have grown to LOVE audio books and I am always open to suggestions for a new book.
WHAT A BOOK!!!! FINISHED WITHIN DAYS, EDGE OF THE SEAT, TWISTED BOOK! Book takes strange turns and you never know what's next, the ending comes out of no where!
This book had me on the edge of my seat, and it was a long sit! Then it just drops you off at the end. Really hated the ending!
I'm thiinking long and hard before I make that commitment
I'm an adved Stephen King reader. This book is the best book I've ever listened too other than his. He mentioned this book in his "Guns" narrative and he was right it's great.
I liked how the author captured both charcters thoughts. The twists and turns just kept me on the edge of my seat.
There are so many its hard to choose.
This book didn't make me cry but it literally shockef me many times through out. Nick was just so oblivious to what had been going on around him.
I loved every minute of this book. I would love to hear what happens next.
