I am one of the people who didn't like this book.
Just didn't like it.
It was OK.
Just didn't enjoy it.
I love to be read to!
Yes very engaging. I good read indeed.
First I thought one character was good then I hated him then liked her then was scared of her… wow.
I really liked the opening. The writing is great and really chilling. Set the tone very, very well.
I wish there wasn't so much profanity in the book. The narration was good, but I hated the book.
Yes. I do not typically read books in this genre. I'm not into livre noir (black/dark books).
I thought this would be much better because everyone has been talking about it. Terrible ending and it was slow to start. I hope they doctored it up for the movie.
There are so many other books that are more movie worthy.
yogini, knitter, quilter, sewist, stitcher, reader, cook, foodie, wine snob, francophile, wife, dog mom, SF Giants fan
Truly original plot with lots of twists.
The bit when Nick is undergoing fertility testing and the... mechanics... are hilariously described.
When Nick reaches the end of the treasure hunt.
I was constantly in suspense over every detail. I found this a very engaging, totally unique thriller.
Excellent, spot-on performance.
Knowing that there was something really off about Amy and Nick from the beginning.
The ending was the amazing. I loved how Gillian Flynn ended the story.
Loved both of their performances.
I was just a little scared and wondered what if someone like Amy was in my life.
This story has twists that kept me listening to the end. The author takes the novel formula and turns it on it's side. This is a psychological thriller per excellence. The narration was OK, but the story line really grabbed me. Listen when you have plenty of time, because you will not want to stop!
I liked the way the characters portrayed what goes on in a long term relationship.
when nick calls some of Amy's former friends and finds out how she went about framing them
when Amy gets robbed at the cabin
Watch this before you shop for engagement rings.
I really wish the ending had been more satisfying. Felt like the author was leaving room for a sequel or something. very satisfying right up until the last few chapters.
I am speechless. Prior to listening to Gone Girl, I had tremendous pleasure listening to Code Name: Verity and heard great reviews about Gone Girl, which might have led to high expectations of this book. I did finish the book and feel I should have listened to my gut and stopped listening two hours in. First, this was not a thriller. Very predictable and written at a 10th grade level. The male narrator is marginally better than the female. When the female narrator would read a line that was a man speaking the narrator would try to sound like a man, but unfortunately it came off badly. I kept telling myself the wide variance in my feelings of this book versus others must be because this was unabridged, but now that I finished the book, I can not imagine that was the sole reason. This was an absolute waste of money.
The "man voice" the female would speak in was rather silly and very annoying. I didn't care for any characters nor cared what happened to them.
The reader of this probably good book made it impossible to get through the 1st hour
Kirby performance made me return the book
