Once it took off after they declared (spoiler**) she was missing there was a twist at every turn. I couldn't stop listening because just when I thought I knew who it was I was wrong.
Most memorable was when (spoiler**) she first appeared in the story!
I LOVED that there were two narrators so that I didn't have to pretend a female was reading a male's side. I loved their back and forth sides of the story.
Yes and No- it was perfect because I couldn't wait to listen to it when I was not able to.
This story had several twists so it kept me listening. It gets a little out there- like something on the ID channel! Entertaining!
Gone Girl was amazing. After I finished listening I bought Gillian Flynn's other novels, what a fantastic mystery writer!
Started devouring books at age 7 and haven't stopped since... Now I can read while I drive, do dishes, clean the house, or work in garden!
An incredible book. Along with the characters, you navigate the twists and turns of a very, very complicated relationship. Absolutely nothing is as it seems - and the final outcome is as inevitable as it is disturbing.
I tried to like this book. I listened to it for hours and hours and it never got good and it just never ended. I finally gave up in the middle of part 3 about an hour and a half from the end. So relieved to finally be able to move on to another book.
Remarkably inadequate ending, unbelievable coalescence of psychoses and bizarre exaggerations, and relatively poor writing. I finished it because someone recommended it-I wish I had followed my initial insight and not wasted my time. Life is too short to waste time on inadequate books!
I loved this! I was very worried that with all the hype it wouldn't stand up to reviews but I was wrong. I was on the edge of my seat.
Don't use such offensive language. Ruined a good story.
Couldn't force myself to finish.
I got this audible trusting the Poe awards and other listeners. Audible reviewers were correct in that you have to get through 1/2 of the book before it spins. Good news is that it spins oh, so well! Bad news is that it took too long to spin. I wish the author could have streamlined the first 1/2 of the book. While the first 1/2 sets up many elements of the second 1/2 I was getting tired. I would say this book slowly climbed up a hill and on the descent there were good twists and turns.
This is one of the most unusual and intriguing book I've ever read!!! I recommended it to every one of my friends. From the storyline to performance, to the uniqueness of this book, I give it a five-star all the way. Sure the ending is kind of unsatisfying but that's part of the beauty of this book. Everyone in this book is flawed, therefore the ending has to be too. It keeps you guessing from the beginning to the end, I couldn't stop listening to it. The performance is very good too, fit for the characters. Get this book, you won't regret, it's kind of dark but in a very good way, keeps you thinking for days even months, which is my indication of a good book.
