No, I probably wouldn't because I just found it to be so frustrating! I hate the ending!
I thought that overall, the story was well-crafted, so I would definitely consider reading something else from Gillian Flynn.
I love how Julia Whelan's voice could go from good to evil.
Maybe, but only because I read the book ... I think I would also hope they would change the ending a little for the movie!
I love reading books by woman authors from this era. Lately, since discovering Audible, I have been listening to some that I haven't previously read. This one is my absolute favorite so far. Some people might think this book is too long and too full of description, but I listen to books at work and it was perfect for me. The narrator, Juliet Stevenson, was perfect for this book. The story is probably fairly predictable, but for me it was definitely worth listening to the whole book to get to the end that I knew was coming. The story is just so great! The character development is amazing, and when I was done I was sad and felt like I was missing some good friends. I might even listen to it again ....
I'm not sure if I really actually hated this story, but I definitely couldn't stand the narrator. She kept switching voices/accents for different characters, but it was done at random and wasn't for any character in particular. She also over-emphasized words and mispronounced some words. On top of that, sometimes she would try to sound really young and sometimes she sounded really old, but it never really made sense for the character. She was just too distracting! I feel bad only giving the story 2 stars because it might have been better than that, but I really couldn't tell because I kept fast-forwarding to see if there was any point I'd be able to handle the narrator (I couldn't, she just kept getting worse).
