I was so bored - it went on and on and on.....
I enjoy listening to the voices of the characters in the book, both Amy and Nick are excellent.
I haven't finished the book and really hate for it to end. Every listening session seems to reveal a surprise and it's all believable.
I like Julia because I can relate to Amy.
I want to tell my friends about the book but hate to say too much and spill the beans!
I thought it was a very good story to listen to. Kept me interested the entire book!!
Their acting ability to bring the characters to life, very good.
No not really, I use my audio books to walk and bike with and I like it when one story is something to look forward to while working out.
OK. The books on the best seller list...even so, no guarantee that it is any good. I had no idea what this book was about going in, murder mystery, a "who done it." Kirby (male narrator) starts off very slow in a dry, dull tone...as if he is sitting by a warm fire in a library setting telling the story of Nick Dunn. Depressing, droning, dragging, will it ever end? (My internal monolog is starting to tell me I chose poorly when selecting this book). The story is a real tragedy. Even when Amy goes missing...depressing depressing depressing...things get really drug out. Why is Nick acting this way? Why is he such a putz? Why does he over analyze everything? Yawn...and then bang...Nick is no putz, he is a weasel, he does have something to hide...motives and possibilities start to appear. Things are looking up, this book just got interesting..and then KAPOW! Gillian Flynn hits you in the nose with a solid right hook. I never saw it coming. Now I have a ticked off family because I am a hermit. I cant put the book down. I have to know what will happen next. I walk around with my ear buds in all the time. This book is great. Both narrators do an outstanding job building the suspense and delivering the lines. I have been telling all my friends about this must read. You can't go wrong.
The story kept me guessing the entire time. Very entertaining and surprising. I would definitely recommend this book.
The narrators gave each character a voice without detracting from the continuity of the narrative.
The narrators were amazing, they made the story come to life. It was fascinating to hear them because they made the characters seem like the people you meet through out life, and then they scare the crap out of you. However, it is so true, He could have never gone back to ta normal life after this, and she could never surpass herself. The sad reality is that we get accustomed to a lifestyle and we stay there, that is what happened to these characters. They could never be with anyone else. And how sad to see that this could be true for anyone of us; we fall for the person we meet, and start disliking them when we see who they really are. So are any one of us really likable, or is it just the face we put on.
Beware... the language throughout is pretty foul, to an excess I thought. Just not necessary. But I would recommend to people who I knew wouldn't be offended.
The constant twists and turns were great. The characters really evolved well throughout the story.
No, they were terrific!
No, I needed breaks. Again the language was really over the top to listen to aloud.
I'm disappointed by this one. The twists were good, but the last part of the book just wasn't very appealing to me. Maybe it's just not what I expected it to be or that none of the characters are super likable. Wasn't horrible, but don't know that I would recommend it to anyone.
No, but don't know that I would read anything from the author.
Yes. No idea who would star in it.
The plot kept twisting and turning. First I believed one voice and then I believed the other...kept me guessing to the end.
I have not listened to these two actors before. I was impressed and I will look for them in the future.
There was a moment when I had to re-think my feelings for the characters. It was interesting to be so invested in fictional characters.
