The whole story. I started reading this book (paperback) and just couldn't get into it. It seemed to DRAG on. Then I saw it in audio format and decided to try again that way. Still very disappointed. I'm shocked that this book has done so well and that they are making a movie of it. I kept telling myself it would get better, the story will get interesting, the ending will make it all worthwhile. Wrong! The only feeling I got out of this story was frustration and disappointment. Not how I want to feel through the whole story and for sure not how I want a story like this to end. I was expecting a really good mystery/thriller and this book did deliver a on the mystery side but, no way would I describe it as a thriller. When I had to walk away from the story, I was never eager to get back to it. More like, "Ok, this is when it will get really good." Sadly no. Not for me. I was very disappointed.
Not a Gillian Flynn book.
I can say one positive side was the characters were well developed. You really got a good understanding of them and felt you really knew them.
After reading this book I mentioned online that I didn't care for it and was surprised that there were several people who agreed (based on the reviews, I thought it was just me). I guess they just aren't the ones reviewing books.
The story twist at the most unexpected moments.
As soon as I thought I understood what was happening- everything changed and she took control.
They have a pleasant voice and are very good at telling a story from first person.
great story.....great narration....but just plain depressing. Twists and turns abound and while I was captivated for the entire book, I just found it to be depressing. Telling much more would give it away.
I would say yes because the narration is amazing! They really brought all of the characters to life.
I honestly can't compare it to anything else.
Amy is my favorite, she's brilliant.
Don't believe everything you see, no relationship is perfect.
This book will take you on a crazy ride so hold on to your seats! Pay attention to everything.
The different view points from husband and wife.
All the twists and turns in the story kept me listening.
I really enjoyed both characters but I'd have to say the husband, Nick Dunn was my favorite.
A Sick Marriage
Story had the potential to be interesting and almost got there a few times but really never got there for me. Especially as it was such a long story I expected more. Performances however were top notch.
Readers were very good and the story flowed nice. The first have was better than the second half. I feel the end of the book was a let down as I feel the reader was not given a real solution to the problem.
Just a thrilling ride
I have read that producers are thinking of changing the ending in the movie. That would be wise as the end of this most thrilling ride will leave wondering "What????"
If I don't answer your call its because I'm totally in love with this audiobook!
I've already recommended this book to so many of my friends! The way the book is split up from one narrator to the other is in and of itself amazing but the story just keeps you engaged the entire time, draws you in!!! My ears were glued I couldn't pause or stop for anything!!!
Nora Roberts The Witness (also a Julia Whelan narration!!!!
I love Julia Whelan and have even on occasion searched for books based off her a a narrator rather than the story! She portrays the characters she reads so incredible well! And Kirby Heyborne was new to me but I enjoyed him a lot too!!!
By definition: Riveting!!!!!
Seriously if you are thinking about getting this book hesitate no longer! You won't be disappointed!!!
