Bought this book as I read gone girl which was very good. However this story never really got started! Listened and hoped it would improve.....not yo be. Very slow I fact never got started. Thumbs down from me.
"Love this book"
This book is just a description of how wrong stuff could go and the effects it has but told from a survivors point of view rather than a being a victim. Loved the book
"Great book!!! Very recommended"
Loved it!!! Very intrigue story. As good as Gone Girl, reader of the book is top class too
King does a good job reading this book and excels at altering her tone for each character. Unfortunately I do find her delivery overly emotional and it starts to really irritate after a while. Still this wasn't enough to stop me listening because the story is gripping. It's a dark and sometimes disturbing tale, but the characterisation is good and there are enough twists to keep the plot moving at a good pace.
As with all Gillian Flynn's books, it's not a great literary work and it frequently falls foul of cliche and familiar stereotype, but it is a good story that will keep you entertained and it's well enough written that the flaws won't bother you.
Excellent book that keeps you guessing right till the end. If you enjoyed gone girl but where left frustrated with the ending the I'd suggest this book is for you.
"Too similar format to gone girl"
I found it annoying. I listened to this just after gone girl. Gone girl is much better. This is very similar in format - but no where near as good
"Gripping couldn't stop listening"
Great plot that unfolds slowly and cleverly. Like Gone Girl empathy with characters was difficult although in the end Libby won me over.
Interesting characters, which have depth and a plot that keeps you guessing. Looking forward to the next Gillian Flynn book.
"Best one by the author yet! A must listen."
Actually gutted it's over, couldn't guess the plot unlike some books I've listened to.
"Slow With a twist!"
I found this book to be very slow to begin with, not picking up pace until about 3 hours left of listening time. I found that there was a lot of unnecessary foul language, wasn't keen on the satanic references either, a bit unsettling, but there was definitely a twist at the end! Worth me sticking with this book to the end, almost didn't! Sharp Objects was definitely a better more enjoyable listen for me by far!
