No, I wouldn't.
The characters were not believable, the plot twists were unrealistic, and the ending was poor.
Yes - through very detailed descriptions and back story.
I kept hoping it would get better.
The actors who read it were excellent; I just found the story itself troubling... but then, pyschopaths ARE troubling!!
very effective actors
A school administrator and avid reader and listener of books. At least an hour of every day is spent in the car, and that's where the bulk of my listening is done. I tend to listen to books on "faster" mode so I can get through more books!
Flynn's tale about Amy and Nick and what happens on their 5th wedding anniversary is full of twists and turns that will keep you on your toes. Written from each perspective, it is impressive how Flynn so fully speaks from Amy's perspective one moment, and then quickly jumps to Nick's.
There is quite a bit of foul language, so those sensitive to that should use caution in choosing this book.
The audio version is outstanding, with male and female narrators for Nick and Amy. The different voices add to the story and the narrators do an excellent job.
dark, funny, twisted
Yes definitely, I can't stop listening to it. Really well read!
I haven't read the print version. I liked the alternating characters, it adds a nice touch to have the female parts read by a female and the male parts read by a male. Both narrators gave good performances.
I loved hating Amy Elliott Dunn. I can't really say why without a spoiler.
Again, I really loved hating Amy. But I also enjoyed Kirby Heyborne as the detective.
I wouldn't say "extreme". I was surprised by the time I got to the end. The last chapter made me cringe a little (without giving away the story)
I'd recommend it. It wasn't what I expected, but I did get into the book.
The story took me til about half way through before I wanted to know what would happen next. The Narrators gave stellar performances. Bravo.
The story was well written, has great character development, the actual story flows well and the narrators fit the characters. All and all a good read for someone who enjoys this genre. With all that said I cannot say that I enjoyed this book. Just one of those rare books that although it covered all the bases but was not my cup of tea.
I should also warn that the ending was disappointing but some people don’t mind a story that does not end neatly.
This is a great listen/read. A challenging whodunnit. Every facet is interesting.
Each character was done well. 2 voice actors was a nice embellishment.
I was forewarned and it helped so I forewarn you: this book is divided in three parts, survive the first part and you'll see that the story will get much better!
The performance is great, especially hers. I'm very happy I decided to get the audio book, Julia Whelan brought the book to an entirely new level.
I absolutely recommend this audio book for those who like psychological thrillers, like good spins and are a bit patient.
