Amazing character development!
It kept me guessing right up till the end because the two main characters were so psychologically damaged.
The scene where Amy is interviewed by Detective Boney after she escapes. Amy is unbelievably abusive to the detective which is so counter productive but she is such a sociopath that she can't help herself.
I felt very bad for the husband, Nick...he was trapped.
This is one of the best psychological dramas and "who done its" that I have read in a long time. The author did an amazing job of weaving this story. It was a very intricate plot.
Yes, this was an extremely well done audio version. The structure, with two main characters alternating their stories, made this a good place for male/female performances. Too many audiobooks suffer from a man doing a female voice or a woman doing a male voice. This was pitch perfect.
The way Amy figured all the angles. I also liked that the police dectective realized Amy had gotten away with it--none of the tiresome "dumb police who don't get it."
They inhabited the characters and expressed them quite convincingly. Julia Whelan conveyed the different Amys extremely well and Kirby Heyborne did the everyman and angry man equally well.
This was an amazing story. I usually listen when I'm in the car, and I wanted to keep driving so I didn't have to stop. It is such a twisty, smart book.
Tell us about yourself!
Good book. Thanks to Audible for having this in store! I would recommend this to my friends and family!
You feel that you're figuring things out and picking up on some nuances in Part 1... then you get to Part 2. The story completely changes!
the narration of this book was perfect -- told in the first person from two sides, their narration really brought the story to life, and the acting through their voices really brought something else to the characters.
this book will make you laugh (in a perverse way). I didn't cry.. but I could see how someone might!
You love, hate, feel compassion and then terror for the wife, then the husband. Your'e left feeling nothing but dread! What a story.
This author twists the story up, down and sideways. The story pulls you in and plays with your emotions all the way through. Please do yourself a favor and read this book.
very good story had me hooked from the beginning. mid-book twist was right on time and I became more interested. ending sort of petered out and was anti-climatic
kind of lost interest in the last chapter and don't think I missed much
i loved the huge twist in the story mid-book
I have about 30% more to listen to and hope to finish in my car today. I think I know what is going to happen but then almost a third is left. Lots of twist and turns and wondering what else is going to happen!
definitely...especially if they are new to audiobooks.
it will draw them into a great alternative to reading!
It reminded me listening to Jodi Piccoult the way it switched to the two main characters perspectives with two wonderful readers.
Anything I could report would be a spoiler as the story wove the twists and turns of the plot with such precistion.
The readers were surperb!
Conained more psychological depth than others of this genre.
Linda Williams Standridge
very angry people who hate other people and are great believers in revenge
when I realized the heroine was not the nice, sweet girl I had at first thought, but a sociopath
more realistic and more cheerful
all of the above
disappointment that I spent so long a time reading and still being fooled and then the book turned "nuts"
