The best thing about the book was how it kept you guessing right to the end.
I don't know if I really didn't like the ending or just didn't want it to end. It was crazy good.
Performances were very good. Story is very well written. You love to hate the characters. I really wasn't very happy with the ending (last plot twist). I really wanted a different ending for the characters.
the two narrators were excellent and gave their individual characters to the two protagonists
Close - but probably Amy because of all her twists and turns
Yes. A lot of thought went into writing the psychological parts of this book. The only problem I had with it is this - it was great, every minute until the end when it seemed like the author just got tired of writing it and ended it. It's still a great book though and well worth your time listening to it!
Yes it did, until the end. When it ended with a big "thump".
They both did a great job.
The plot of the story is great!!! sooo worth it!!! I was on the edge of my seat at times!
Fit their characters perfect!
Yes. So far it has been a good read, well listen. I was disgusted by some of the characters. But I will say at the beginning you were drawn it, then the in the second part of the book you get punched in the gut and may swear a little.
Nick, Boney, Go and the lawyers wife.
They both did a excellent job to me. It made the book easier to follow since the book is told from the point of view of the two main characters. The inflections and voices of the characters are spot on. You can tell that the narrators are not "river folk" but still good.
I was outraged. And it was a lot of "WTF" is wrong these people moments. I was appalled throught most of the book. I have three hours left and cant wait for the end!
You really wont like a anyone in the book. Everyone is so F@#$ED up in its hard to like anyone of them. They are disgusting but a fascinating study into the minds of sociopaths. The people who dislike the book are mostly speaking about the characters. It is well written a bit long winded espically at the end. These last few hours are a bit hard to make it through I want to fast foward it but thats just impatience not because its a bad book. I just feel as if it could have been cut short a bit.
I haven't finished it yet but I am half way through it... i love it...it's just so hard to fine time in the day to be able to listen to it...mostly weekends if they aren't too full of work around the house stuff...but all in all I like what i have heard so far....it's neat going back and forth between him and her...great
i can't answer all the questions yet...untill i finish it.
Not unless I get desperate.
Give us at least one likeable character and an ending. Please.
Julia doing male voices was really annoying. Kirby was okay.
The twists and turns are overrated. There's one good twist and a bunch of droning posturing.
The characters were vivid - there's a considerable amount of detail on them. I found them outrageous, but consistent, and believable enough within the story. I wasn't sure I'd be able to finish - the book is so long, and I normally can't tolerate a book where I don't like any of the characters. But I didn't get really impatient until the last few hours. Overall, I found the story intriguing, but was not very satisfied with how it worked out.
The plot does some major twists and turns, and the scenes where these were revealed were usually quite fun. The author sometimes exhibits a sense of glee in turning a situation on its head, and it did make me laugh at times.
Interesting, but too long.
