Mom of two,I love listening and reading at the same time. I love the immersion reading option,I enjoy it a lot.
If only I had a seamless listening experience I would've given it 5 stars. Great story and voicing I felt the characters come to life,but it would always stop half way or when the page is about to turn. By the way I listen using kindle fire HDX with the immersion reading.
I would say the last part,towards the end when Nick seemed to have finally accepted his faith.
Really wish you could fix the immersion reading problem.
I was disappointed. I listen to a lot of classic books that are free on Librivox.com. This book was not my style. Too long. I Should have read the abridged version. Also, too many f... words.
I really enjoyed this book, I have recommended it to almost everyone I have spoken to since I started listening to it. This book kept me guessing for the whole time. Not only, was this story good but the narrators were great. I did not want to stop listening to this book. My only regret was that I only purchased the audio book and do not have the hard copy yet.
I couldn't stop listening. The story is so messed up you can't make yourself stop listening to it. The characters were written so well that I kept flip flopping back and forth between hating them and liking them. Overall it was a good book and I would recommend it to a friend.
Reading allows me to travel through time, to visit the world's unique and stunning places, to become somebody I am not... It is glorious.
About two very disturbing people. The center of the book for me is neither Nick or his missing wife ... But their relationship. The book is extremely well-written. The author takes you back in time when Nick remembers moments with his wife or when she writes her journal. Then she flashes forward to the present ... The slow early days after she disappears. We see Nick floundering to convince the police that he isn't involved. And then we see him grasping desperately at his own theory about what happened to his wife. We watch as he seems to dissolve into himself, going a little crazy. And the whole time your horror at his wife's story grows. Eventually I found myself relieved to leave the insanity of these two people when the book ended.
Saying that you might think I didn't like the book. This isn't true. I found myself repulsed by these two people and their relationship. And that repulsion is exactly why I liked this book. It was a tight and gripping story about unlikable people.

The alternating "voices" made it easy to follow.
No. It is disappointing. No real climax of the story.
They made a pitiful plot tolerable.
A married couple of psychopathology personified. Could have had a more twisted/exciting ending.
Yes, I would like to catch what I had missed.
Amy coming home.
I have never encountered a book that had me in a trance. The first person twists are amazing. Original and clever writing. The reader goes in and out of rooting for characters.
I should have been doing other things instead of listening to this book almost without stop. I don't even care. I couldn't turn it off. It's thrilling and crazy and unstoppable. You will be left stuttering, desperately looking for someone else who's read it so that you can yell in each other's faces about how gross you feel.
You'll love it. Just read it.
Just plain fun
The characters were flawed, a bit sick and incredibly interesting.Just when I got comfortable with a story direction, it would twist and turn another direction.
It kept me awake for hours in spite of extreme jet lag… it made me toss and turn to try to stay awake after an 11 hour flight. 21 hours+ awake and I still listened….
I would recommend this book to a friend with a few reservations.
The plot definitely kept me interested and engaged in trying to figure out what would come next. Definitely lots of twists and turns to keep the reader coming back for more!
Loved her and (I'm really sorry) just HATED his voice. He did not sound remotely like the character described in the book. He would make a great simpering gay man in another story, but he was so far from Nick in this one that it really dampened my enthusiasm for the story. Not sure who cast him for this part but they really missed the mark!
I was always anxious to see what was coming next.
I liked the book although I felt the police investigation fell way short of the CSI perfection we've come to expect. The ending was unexpected, and I'm not sure I liked it, but I did find it an interesting choice by the author.
