I really enjoyed this dark novel. It has great twists and turns and I won't say more about that so I don't ruin it for you. The narration was fine, but not amazing. Neither voice was annoying, at least to me.
I have recommended this audiobook to a friend. The narration is wonderful--I have not been able to listen to many books because the narration was so horrible, that is not true in this case.
The story is incredible and unpredictable. I can usually guess most endings in the first half of the book--not this one. It was a great ride!
The ending. It just kept you guessing. When you had figured everything out--another twist was thrown at you.
Just overall good narration. I really enjoy "reading" my books while I'm doing something else and a bad narration is the kiss of death--I have turned off a audiobook and didn't listen to it again because of bad narration.
Yes. Hated to turn it off.
No. It's sad to see an author who feels they have to sell out to the "F" word in order to move copies. What could have been interesting characters were unfortunately completely dumbed down, the author only able to express the anger, hurt or confusion of every character, male or female, by just having them repeatedly using the F word,or having the men call the women B's through clenched angry teeth. The ending is very poor also, so overall it was pretty painful making it through this muddled and slow moving muck.
The narrators did a good job.
This was my first Gillian Flynn book. Wow! I was hooked from the get-go and totally satisfied with the wrap up. The story get me guessing, and I like that.
Lord yes! I have recommend it to a few people already. This book is sick and twisted in a good way.
When Amy revealed what was really going on. I remember yelling at my desk at work, "WHAT?!?!?! NO WAY. IS SHE SERIOUS????"
Kirby Heyborne's voice is kinda monotone at first. I didn't feel like his voice fit how they described him. When the book picks up so does he. Julia Whelen never disappoints. She was amazing!
Honestly no. I almost stopped listening to it because the first part is soooo slow. It didn't pick up until about chapter 8 of the first half. You have to pay attention to this part because it connects to the next portion of the book. When I got to the second half I wanted to listen to it in one straight shot.
I loved this book. I couldn't believe the ending. I was a little disappointed in how it ended. Amy was a mess and won basically. I thought the book as a whole was great. It should be made into a movie. I found myself going "I can't believe Amy" for a few days after it was over.
Love to listen to historical fiction, paranormal, romance, and general fiction while commuting. Audiobooks help make the drive bearable!
While I really liked this book, I don't think I'd listen to it again - a big part of my enjoyment was wondering what would happen next. That said, the narration was simply excellent, so it wouldn't be bad to have an encore listen.
I liked how the author really made me love then hate different characters at different points throughout the book.
Fantastic narration and pitch perfect emotions. The narrators made a good book great.
There were many points where I could really relate to the characters - I really liked that. Then there were points that were so crazy, I couldn't believe it. Fun ride!
People who love listening to profanity and irritating voices.
Should have been a warning about excessive use of profanity.
This book is extremely well written. The characters are deep and complex and the plot is endlessly twisted. If you're looking for something to keep you up at night - this is it. Don't miss it.
The first third of the book, I thought was good but not up to the hype. Then I got to the second third and it was a roller coaster ride after that. The last third, I never would have guessed. I was listening while shopping and would occasionally gasp and get strange looks from my fellow shoppers in produce. What a fun ride this book was.
The narrators give an great performance. The story is probably well written but its so disturbing I question the sanity of the author. She makes Stephen King seem like Santa Claus. Wish I had read it instead of listened - I would have read less than halfway, then gone to the end to see what all the fuss was about. Saved spending all those hours with psychotic characters that I cared nothing about. If you have a sensitive nature at all, skip this one.
