The book keeps you engaged. You either love yourself for not be duped or chastise yourself for not figuring things out sooner.
What I like best is that it isn't totally predictable. There aren't so many twist that you can't keep up but just when you think you've got it.......do you really?
Julia Whelan and Kirby Heyborne made me feel as if I was just a fly on the wall. It did not sound like a performance.
You cannot discuss that with spoiling the experience for others.
It is obvious that this book is a set up for a sequel. I did not care for the ending but that is where you will build from in the next installment.
This tale was weaved around two VERY intense characters. It kept me guessing with twists and turns I didn't see coming.... That is hard to do!
Amy....Nick....I can't choose! Both characters were very well written. You go from feeling sorry for one to hating them then back to feeling sorry...
I didn't care for Kirby's voice at first, but it grew on me... From seeing the movie advertisements, I just wanted his voice to be Ben Afleck! Julia...her performance was FLAWLESS!
Already a film. LOL
At least one redeeming character. They were all terrible people.
I don't think I have listened to them before, but they were fine.
Disgust. Seriously, every story needs some redemption. This was utterly hopeless and dreary.
I want my credit back.
Gilliam Flynn's writing is spot on.
The performances were sooooo annoying. Kirby Heyborne's voice is completely un-Nick-like. And both readers have the super annoying habit of trying to mimic the opposite gender's voice - totally irritating and dumb.
Rebecca by Daphne DuMaurier and The Fabulous Mr. Ripley by Patricia Highsmith.
Claire Danes and Leonardo DiCaprio
The ending is disappointing. The plot twists seemed absurd and everything was over-explained.
I am a total audiobook addict! I travel quite a bit for work and listen to them while I drive. Always searching for a good author to follow
I loved all the twists and turns! I had guessed one of the twists and thought "that was easy to figure out" then it got way more twisted, and then more again, and even more again, right up until the very end.
Fantastic!! I have listed to Kirby a few times and always enjoyed him. It's my first time listening to Julia and she was great.
I never usually listen to books like this, but I saw the trailer for the movie and read all the great reviews on Audible, so I thought I would try it. Well, I am so glad I did! Every chance I got I would be listening to this book. I couldn't wait to see what happened in the end!
When you think you know what's happening she turns your world upside down.
The very end. Perfect ending for such a manipulating story.
This kept me intrigued from the very beginning. I loved the he said she said versions of the writing. There are so many twist and turns the reader is never board.
Beautiful characterization. Suspenseful; twists and turns totally unexpected.
The story is very well written.
They did an excellent job bringing the characters to life and keeping the suspense moving.
This book exceeded my expectations. I am going to explore other books that Gillian Flynn has written.
Hard to say. Probably Amy because I can relate.
No I haven't.
Not really but it was hard to put away.
I love the plot, twist and oh my gosh, is this really the end of the book?!! Please tell me there is a part two in the works!
I was less than impressed with the male audio performer. I'm an avid audiobook customer and I rarely ever write reviews...except I'm so disappointed in his performance. His auto tune voice kept pulling me out of the story wondering if a robot or "voice machine" was reading the book to me. The female performer was good, and the story was great. I'll keep and eye out for Kerby (male voice) and make a note not purchase any of his performed books again. And for those of you who think I'm crazy, just replay any sentence including him saying "my wife" and tell me Mr. Kerby doesn't sound like a robot!
I loved that, just when you think you can figure out what is going to happen, the story line takes a 180. It is written and performed so well. It is my all time favorite book. This is what I need in a book, mystery, suspense, romance (Of sorts) twists and turns. It is pure perfection!!!
