I couldn't stop listening. The story is so messed up you can't make yourself stop listening to it. The characters were written so well that I kept flip flopping back and forth between hating them and liking them. Overall it was a good book and I would recommend it to a friend.

The alternating "voices" made it easy to follow.
No. It is disappointing. No real climax of the story.
They made a pitiful plot tolerable.
A married couple of psychopathology personified. Could have had a more twisted/exciting ending.
Yes, I would like to catch what I had missed.
Amy coming home.
I have never encountered a book that had me in a trance. The first person twists are amazing. Original and clever writing. The reader goes in and out of rooting for characters.
I should have been doing other things instead of listening to this book almost without stop. I don't even care. I couldn't turn it off. It's thrilling and crazy and unstoppable. You will be left stuttering, desperately looking for someone else who's read it so that you can yell in each other's faces about how gross you feel.
You'll love it. Just read it.
Just plain fun
The characters were flawed, a bit sick and incredibly interesting.Just when I got comfortable with a story direction, it would twist and turn another direction.
It kept me awake for hours in spite of extreme jet lag… it made me toss and turn to try to stay awake after an 11 hour flight. 21 hours+ awake and I still listened….
I would recommend this book to a friend with a few reservations.
The plot definitely kept me interested and engaged in trying to figure out what would come next. Definitely lots of twists and turns to keep the reader coming back for more!
Loved her and (I'm really sorry) just HATED his voice. He did not sound remotely like the character described in the book. He would make a great simpering gay man in another story, but he was so far from Nick in this one that it really dampened my enthusiasm for the story. Not sure who cast him for this part but they really missed the mark!
I was always anxious to see what was coming next.
I liked the book although I felt the police investigation fell way short of the CSI perfection we've come to expect. The ending was unexpected, and I'm not sure I liked it, but I did find it an interesting choice by the author.
I'm not sure. The plot was completely ridiculous, yet I kept listening hoping it would get better.
No but I will definitely avoid this author if she publishes anything else.
They were both fine.
The premise was interesting.
I have no idea what all the fuss is about and I'm shocked that so many people rave about this book.
Well read, entertaining, but ultimately there are no appealing characters and didn't really feel worth all the time I spent listening to it. Little meaning in the end.
I don't know why books like this achieve such popularity. You will rarely find lead characters so unlikeable as those in this book. Maybe it is not the narrator's fault, but she really brings out the snarkiness in the husband and wife's observations -- they are snarky about EVERYTHING, big and little. Overall, it's a nasty piece of work. There is one - and in my opinion, only one - neat little twist in the plot. But other than that, spending so many hours in the company of these vain and annoying people is time I could've better spent so other way. I do, by the way, sometimes like mysteries featuring twisted or sociopathic characters (Ruth Rendell comes to mind) but this story pours it on too thick without any charm whatsoever.
The ending was horrible. The book was great up until the end.
I liked how they went back and forth between Amy's story and Nick's story.
Again, it was until the end.
Couldn't get enough. The plot twists were awesome. Then there was no justice. At the end she basically won. And she does not deserve to win.
