Yes, but only with a different ending.
The story was captivating. The performance admirable. I couldn't put it down.
Then, in the end, there was a great drop and a huge disappointment! I will never buy this author's book again. I gave it 3 stars because it was a great book...until the last chapter. If you like Stephen King endings, you will love this book.
Yes, I would change the ending. It never really reached a conclusion. It just sort of ended.
I liked that they didn't rely on one narrator to perform both the primarily male and primarily female voiced chapters.
No. The first quarter or third of the story is primarily made up of the two main characters waxing poetic about their lives up until the point of the first event of the story. While I later understood its necessity, it was really, really boring. Then the story picked up and became very entertaining and suspenseful, but that's only worthwhile if it ultimately reaches a clear resolution, which it didn't.
I was about about to finished part 1 on the audio. I was forcing myself to listen. So I went looking for a spoiler. I am not one of those who goes to the last page but I was wary of this book. People either hate it or love it. I personally decided that I did not want sick twisted thoughts from these people in my head. I quit it. Delete. Sorry that is a bit of a spoiler but I wish I would have known. So if you like grim towns, sorry people and a long, long running mystery of whiney dribbling bits of failing and pychos ....go for it.
Long what's the point if you switch
Voices ok. Hated the character of Nick's father.
I thought it might but then no. I don't want to ever think about it again
The movie will probably be a great scary event.
Never has a book created such emotional turmoil for me, the reader. I wanted to slap Nick silly for being so stupid and blind. I wanted to KILL Amy. When have I ever wanted to KILL a character in a book? I hated it and swore I wouldn't finish it. But I couldn't put it down. What a delightful, evocative, rollercoaster of a read!
This book is very contemporary. All the elements are there. Still, there is an ick factor.
I can see people acting in this way.....and it is not pretty. There is not a moral factor of good or bad. Just the ickiness of human nature explained.
A thriller that is not so emotional.
The twin sister. Nick needs a male friend.
Loved it through and through.... Hated to have it end.. but look forward to the movie.. and her next book.
I wouldn't because I'm not into re-reading and this is a novel in which you need to be unaware of what's coming next
I like how you always knew something crazy was going to happen
Hearing about everything Amy schemed
Love every genre - read a book every 2 weeks or so- I mix between business books, classics, modern fiction, and biographies
Marriage from Hell
Yes - I knew what the end result would have to be but I wanted to see how the author got us there- clever
A friend of mine told me this is a great book, but she didn't like the ending. I decided to be my own judge. And indeed, most of it is a great book, as evidenced by its popularity. The characters are well drawn. Nick is sympathetic but not perfect. Amy is a big surprise. The twists and turns keep your attention. But just when it's clear who we should be rooting for, Flynn seems to run out of gas. The ending is indeed unsatisfying -- it's like she got tired of writing and just stopped.
What a roller coaster ride! Takes you back and forth between thinking he's innocent, hating him, hating Amy, felling sorry for Amy.....wow.
Amy is brilliantly CRAZY!
