What fun to read something that is well written, a different and surprising storyline and great narration. So glad I tried this book!
Plot had many twists and turns..I couldn't put the book down
Gillian Flynn - no she is a terrible author. The narrators yes.
At first I enjoyed the way the author made you have empathy for one character and then switched it, however towards the end of the book, the empathy shifted from one to the other so quickly that I disliked them both. I thought the book ended very poorly, nobody won, everyone lost.
I enjoyed the fact that you didn't know what was going to happen but the end became too shifty for me. It was too much.
No, it ended in a lose/lose situation and nothing good will come from a second book. I would not purchase it.
This has been one of the best books I've listened to in a long time. I found myself staying in my garage to listen to the next chapter! The narration was perfect for the dual characters and kept you on the edge waiting to see what would happen next. A DEFINITE for your long drives!
Say something about yourself!
What a twisting turning plot... and I loved every minute of it. Once started it was hard to put down. Liked the way the narration/story went back-and-forth between characters. Narrators did an excellent job. Highly recommend.
Without spoiling the book for you, I will speak in general terms. You know those books you read or listen to where you feel like you wasted a part of your life that you will never get back....this might be that book for you. I will say this: Gillian Flynn displays near brilliance in character development and story pace. She takes you through a roller-coaster of emotions in your view of her characters. Gone Girl has what I would describe as an incredible plot. In fact, Flynn writes one of the best books I have ever read...up until the worst endings of all time. OR....she and her editor realized that this story had huge sequel potential and they decided to leave us wanting. In that case, this could go from one of the worst books to one of my all time favorites. My recommendation? Wait for the sequel before you pick this one up.
I probably wouldn't listen to Gone Girl again. While I enjoyed the story, the male narrator's voice really annoyed me. I felt like it didn't fit the physical description or the personality of the character.
Yes. I never wanted to stop listening. I just wanted to know what the HELL was happening.
I think the male narrator should have been someone different, with a voice that matched the character. The female narrator was perfect! I loved her and hated her, just like I should have.
Do not be deceived by appearances.
Psychotic, Toxic, Spellbinding.
Amy was my favorite character. She was calculating and devious and she draws the reader into her web of psychosis.

This book has been one of my favorite audiobooks so far. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 for story is the ending was somewhat dissapointing. The entire book is riveting and keeps you guessing. The book takes a turn about two-thirds through, but then starts to unravel a bit. I still highly recommend, I just would have ended it differently.
