I really enjoyed the surprises that occured. Not THE BIG one, but the little ones that she peppered the story with.
The story kept me moving throughout the places and situations. Ms Flynn knows people and stories, too.
Julia Whelan had the accents DOWN. At one point I thought I was listening to a friend from the place. Kirby Heyborne lent his great voice to the confusion of his charactors. I did like that they did not overdo 'acting out' the charactors-- especially the anciliarry charactors.
It was a long book. It would be a bit difficult. I listened while on a road trip-- so I got to hear it in larger chunks than I usually can. I didn't want it to finish so I put off listening to the last part. Laughed at myself as I finally HAD to go listen to the final piece.
I have actually recommended listening to this book to some people who were going to read it. I could see enjoying reading it, but listening kept me from jumping/sneaking ahead to see what was next.
Riveting, Well written, Shocking
I liked Go for being a loyal, loving sibling.
I was shocked by the great lengths a person will go to seek revenge.
I was disappointed by the ending. I didn't want a certain character to get their way.
Didn't like the male narrator's voice for the part - distracting - too much description of relationships/times that wasn't interesting at all
The voice didn't match the type of character he was portraying in my opinion
Didn't get far enough in be able to make that call
This is a wonderful audio book. It's a wonderful book period. But it unfolded before my eyes as I walked on my treadmill. i wouldn't allow myself to listen unless I was on the treadmill. I started walking over an hour each day! That's how good this book is.
There were so many unexpected things in this book. Usually I know just where the plot is going. This one is a shocker and it caused such strong emotions in me. I would talk back to the characters all the time, which startled my sleeping dog!
EERY, CREEPY, MESMERIZING
there are a lot of them, and not sure I can write one without giving something away. But one of them is when Nick opens the shed.
hmmm, felt a little sick to my stomach at times. The book makes you question your own life - which I think is the sign of a good book when certain aspects from Nick and Amy's marriage can parallel your own marriage, only they just go further with it, and you think, do I do that??
it's a page turner...what a couple! the narrators are great and play the characters perfectly. Listen to, or read this book before the movie comes out!
This is story I could definitely listen to again. While it took some time to get used to two voices, after awhile I was comfortable with both readers. They gave life to both characters, and even in the tones of their voices I could work on liking or hating the character
'Til Death Do Us Part
Definitely a twisted ending. Gone Girl took me on a trip that I wasn't expecting, but the ride was totally worth it.
I am a 40 year old physical therapist. I can remember when I was 12 I thought Stephen King was the only author in the world and I read any of his books...... Now my love for reading has grown...I love to listen and now... To about anything.....
Yes,because you never know what will happen next
When nick realized that even with his book, Amy had out thought him again
The narrators were AWESOME!! Loved hearing both female and male narrators for the characters parts!!
I loved them both!
I was angry with the ending....when you listen you will understand why!
The way this girl thinks is memorable all through the book
The way two people intwine with each other is amazing
The end will get to you
The author should be congratulated in writing an amazing story about life and what it can do to you
