Stopped listening after chapter 3. Then after revisiting the rave reviews I tried again. As much as I tried I couldn't get past Chapter 5. SLOW, and characters are annoying. I kept hoping the exciting part was coming up, but I never got there.
Yes, it helped me get through the tedious background on the characters
Once I hit the halfway point, yeah - because now we had a REAL story and not just a slow reveal of one side.
Depends, I thought Heyborne as Nick was terrible, and I hated his female voices.
language is so offensive!! don't like it for myself, therefore not recommend it for anyone i know!!
The most interesting is the fluency of the details; the least is the facts listed of the problem solving or conflict. full with stereotype and unreal facts .
Scorned woman's revenge.
When Amy shows her true self.
Where Nick realizes he has been played.
I loved this book, the way it was written, the back and forth from Amy's diaries to Nick, to real Amy. It was much more than I expected it to be and I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this.
i enjoyed the movie, but i found that there really wasn't much more to the characters in the book than the movie portrayed.
I would definitely recommend this audiobook to a friend. The story line was great. It keeps you in suspense from beginning to end.
The most memorable moment was hearing the TRUTH played out. Hearing "her" side.
No I haven't. It was a very easy listen. Nice voiceovers.
Yes, I was very emotional about the thought of the husband killing such a kind woman who wanted so badly to be loved and to make her husband happy.
Book: Interesting murder mystery. Most of the plot is believable. It is well written and has some great visuals.
Performance: Two readers do an excellent performance. They make up for any plot shortfalls.
Didn't read the print version.
SPOILER ALERT: I really wanted to see Nick "get even."
Both did a great job...especially liked Julia's performance.
Was never particularly "moved," but was amazed at how far Amy went and how smart she was.
The story was good overall, but the ending was just, "blah." It did make me think about what the future might hold for the characters, but it was disappointing, considering all the build up.
I hate that I almost always figure out the ending of books because they are so predictable. Enter Gone Girl. What a great roller coaster ride. Just when I thought I knew where it would go next I found myself looking in the wrong direction. Buy and listen now!
Hi, I love listening to books when I'm driving it is better than listening to today's music.
The narrators only have what is in front of them to read. I did not have trouble with that. But, the story was wanting!!! It was as if she could not come up with a better way to end it, there really was no ending.... The author seems to have thought of scenes then just threw them in where ever she decided whether it fit or not. I felt it was disorganized and poorly written. I regret wasting my time and money!!!
The Burning Room by Michael Connelly & Painted Horses by Malcolm Brooks, narrated by Julia Whelan.
Wrote the book
It already has been turned into a movie. I hope the movie is better than the book!
I usually don't write reviews BUT I felt so strongly about this book I had to review this one!
