I listen to books to be entertained... my favorite genre is a "Legal Thriller" I have actually been a member since 2001. Love my books!
I almost gave up on this book, the beginning was tough for me to get through. I found my mind wandering and unable to stay focused on the book. I stayed with it and I am glad that I did. I must say it is not your usual mystery and that is one of the reasons that I enjoyed it. By the third part of this book, I could not put it down. It is well worth the credit.
I listen on my way to and from work. My time is valuable so I much prefer only "very good" reads. The voice and presentation is just as important to me as the story itself.
i don't think there is anything about this book that is a better experience from listening vs. reading.
It was an interesting story, kept me interested. At times on edge, but also with a bit of "now that would not be possible" Still am intriguing tale that I would recommend.
too long for that!
While at times the story is hard to fully believe, it was interesting, entertaining, and I kept me listening until the very end.
Hero & Heroin – Villain and Villainous and they are 2 in the same
There are soooo many twists and turns you just keep going and you are constantly wondering what is going to happen next. That is until about ¾ of the way through and then it gets wordy and you just want it to “get on with it”. However, keep going...
It keeps the reader guessing and that even happens at the very end. Two ways to look at the ending… Who won the game? I do not know and neither does my other half. Makes you wonder… and keep discussing…
Intriguing, fascinating story! I just loved this book! I couldnt put it down!!! Amazing Amy or is it notorious Nick?

This is a good story. The narrator draws you into the story. The twist at the end is interesting. I wouldn't be surprised if this was made into a movie.
Definitely a book I have and will continue to recommend. Hard to find a good read that doesn't follow the typical formulaic plot line. In the top tier.
In broad sense, you could compare it with "We Need To Talk About Kevin" in that it is a story driven by the borderline personality disorder of the primary character. Gone Girl however is more about dysfunctional relationship and you will definitely find parts that are true to life. Gone Girl made me chuckle at parts and always seemed to take a turn I wasn't anticipating. Refreshing - didn't know how it was going to end up!
I liked the down to earth, matter of fact way they portrayed the characters, real sometime off beat.
Sometimes love bites!
The unexpected twist. Well done, but not completely original. Still delicious, and very worth the read for that alone. Trust me.... no really. You'll like it. Or at least you'll know what everyone's talking about at parties. It ain't no 50 shades nonsense.
The author spelled everything out, like she was so proud of the plot she created, and she should be, but sometimes it's better to let the imagination work a little. And the author did such an amazing job of making the crazy believable, but some of the circumstances worked out just a little too well. This made the book start to fall apart in the second part. While I agree that it was nice to see how the pair were perfect for each other, I think it would have been more interesting, and more likely, if things didn't work out for our lady quite so nicely. I don't say that because I love to hate her, I enjoyed her a lot, I just got bored with how miraculously everything turned out. I think I actually rolled my eyes a few times.
Definitely. Especially the first part, after that, their cover is blown and its a little less suspenseful, and more excruciating.
Recommended because it's a great yarn, and strays off the beaten path of a lot I've read lately. Not your typical mystery, and thank god there's no vampires or werewolves or anything like that. This story could actually happen (yeah, right...).
Yes, keeps you wanting more
Nick, team nick!
When it's realized Nick is being framed by Amy
Oh gosh, it far surpasses so, so many of them. It is such a good book, and such a good audiobook.
You never quite know what is about to happen, how you are supposed to feel, what you are supposed to think. It just swoops you and takes you in
Oh, Nick Dunne, no doubt. Kirby Heyborne did a stellar job. One thing I would say, though- I'd expect more of a southern accent. Kind of a weaker accent, but still. Non of the characters had an accent with Kirby Heyborne, which is a shame. (Oh, I'm sorry, I believe Betsey Ann had an accent)
It made me laugh, it made me sad, it shook my world. I loved it.
Love to read and listen to books.
I loved the first half of the book. I enjoyed the plot of Amy sticking it to her husband. The plot was constantly twisting and turning.
I thought they had a great performance.
I really loved the first half of the book. I loved that Amy was sticking it to Nick but the plot got too dark. I was laughing along with Amy and was amazed at her brilliance but it became downright sick and evil especially the part of Desi. The part about Desi ended it for me. I didn't like the ending.
