Yes...not boring AT ALL
Not my favorite character but the dad was funny in a woman hating twist.
Julia's voice was perfect...Kirby's was a bit droll but that seemed to coincide with the Nick character. Both did a great job mimicking other characters voices.
I would sit in my car, practically late for work trying to find a reasonable stopping point but I just wanted to keep listening!
Yes! Specially to the weird friends. They will love it.
I would skip the politically correct ones... they might think YOU are the weird one for enjoying it.
The whole book kept me on my toes. It is all so chocking that if I describe any moment I will spoil the book.
I can tell you though, that at some point you will say: HA! I knew it!
Believe me - YOU DON'T. I fell for that too...
I have not. I was very impressed. I felt that more than 4 people were narrating the book. I wish they could narrate EVERY book.
I personally hate books... I can't concentrate (serious ADHD). Monotone narrators drive me crazy.
These 2 were awesome! Even if one have narrated this books, it would've been great.
I did! I listen to my books during my long commutes to and from work. I almost crashed my car several times (if you are dramatic like me, don't listen to this book while driving).
I was so disturbed and amused at the same time.
Bottom part of list.
Readers were good. Liked the back and forth from Nick to Amy The ending was disappointing. A big let down.
Amy describing how she set Nick up
Yes, wanted to find out what happens
Was good up till the last two chapters. What a bogus ending!
No. I am a Patterson and reacher fan. Boring
I already listened to forced to kill. Exciting. Now on to Walt longmire.
They were ok. Story was not. I hit the wrong stars. Can't delete them
Want to return it
Narrators and storyline
The plot has enough twists and turns to keep you wanting more.
Both narrators were top notch. They captured the emotion of the characters in their different state of minds. Very well done.
Gratuitous cursing. Expect mature language.
Yes and I have. The story is excellent, but it's the narration that really sold it for me. Julia and Kirby bring these characters to life in a way that made me both hate to love them, and love to hate them.
Indeed it did. I was nearly obsessed. When I wasn't listening, I was thinking about the story and the characters. I wanted to know what insanity was going to unfold next, and again, the narration was key.
Yes and no. I can get really emotionally involved in a story, so there were times when the craziness was too much for me to handle. However, that didn't stop me from listening for 3-5 hours a day.
I'm terrible at finishing audiobooks. For some books it's a struggle to get past a particular writing style, poor or uneven narration and length. Gone Girl exhibited none of those hurdles. The writing was natural and lended itself to the audio format brilliantly.
Is the story perfect? No. There were some slow moments in the middle and near the end. With so many moving parts and minute details to keep track of, the story seemed too outrageous and unbelievable, but that only made the listening experience that much more enjoyable.
I am one of the people who didn't like this book.
Just didn't like it.
It was OK.
Just didn't enjoy it.
I love to be read to!
Yes very engaging. I good read indeed.
First I thought one character was good then I hated him then liked her then was scared of her… wow.
I really liked the opening. The writing is great and really chilling. Set the tone very, very well.
I wish there wasn't so much profanity in the book. The narration was good, but I hated the book.
Yes. I do not typically read books in this genre. I'm not into livre noir (black/dark books).
I thought this would be much better because everyone has been talking about it. Terrible ending and it was slow to start. I hope they doctored it up for the movie.
There are so many other books that are more movie worthy.
