I would recommend to a friend. It was such a psychologically disturbing story that I can't quit thinking about it.
I pretty much hated all of the characters in the book, but the performances of Whelan and Heyborne were excellent.
I did have an extreme reaction to the book. Early in the book, I was appalled by the behavior of everyone involved. It was like that train wreck that you just can't turn away from. You don't want to see the horrible thing that is happening, but you can't stand not knowing, either. It didn't make me laugh or cry, but I was so tense the entire time I listened that it made me very tired.
I have already recommended it to several friends. It starts out so innocently, and then the layers peel back and you realiz all is not as it seems.
Absolutely! I listen to audio books in my car since I travel for my job. I rarely bring one in the house to continue listening, but this one I had to. It seemed like every chapter brought another twist and turn, and I could NOT wait to see what happened next,
No, I have not.
It was, but of course I couldn't. I did finish it in pretty record time though.
I cannot stop thinking about the psychological aspects of this book. I just really loved it,
Just when you think you have the story figured out it completely changes.
They do a great job of bringing the characters to life.
I would give it a middling recommendation. I enjoyed much of it and it had some nice, clever twists and turns but, overall, I was only moderately impressed
Probably not but who knows. I liked a lot of the writing - I found it clever and sophisticated. The story really pulled me in at first but, to me, it didn't really sustain itself.
They were fine
the twists. I changed what I thought of the characters many times
Amazing Amy - never knew what was coming next
The twists and turns of the story and I loved the use of two narrators. It added to the separation of points of view.
When the twists would hit..I didn't even see them coming.
They nailed the characters.
I definitely recommend this!
The characters were well developed and made you want to know them.
I did not like the end of the book-very unsatisfying close.
I was very upset that nothing was accomplished or closed.
yes but i would hesitate to read it unless I was promised it would not end that way.
I'm a Joyful Vegan/Artist-Photographer who has become passionately addicted to Audible.
I loved the compelling story, and the surprising twists and turns.
The performances were impeccable. I loved that there were a male and female voice performing.
The "performance" of Gone Girl was the best I have ever listened to. Both readers had extremely interesting voices and made the story come alive!
This is the first story I have listened to by Julia Whelan and Kirby Heyborne. I will certainly search for others that are narrated by these two talented people!
Plenty of twists and turns. For a while there, I was having flashes of The Scott/Lacy Peterson case then ..... I don't want to give anything away, so I'll just say this was worth the credit.
