I loved this story, and while it is a little slow to start, it's beautiful narration and detail makes it worth it.
I highly recommend it.
I loved this book when it first came out and so when my book club chose it I was excited to read it again....or listen to it as I thought a change of venue would be nice. I was wrong. While the story was as good as every and great to revisit, Julia Whelan's voice was so grating, so annoying that I had to forward past her. Kirby Heyborned more than made up for it. I ended up reading "Amy's" parts and listening to "Nick's" part.
The unreliable narration and how brilliantly that is done gets me every time with this book.
Julia Whelan's voice, in particular her long sssss's got on my last nerve. It completely ruined the audible experience for me I'm afraid.
The time frame and the history
Disappointed though I know there is more to come. I was happy to have it over.
He was excellent
It lingered for too long, it could have done with a kick up the backside.
While it's the first Gillian Flynn's novels, It's the last one I've read. It didn't reach the dizzying heights of Girl Gone or Dark Places, but it's still a wonderful novel with fast pacing and brilliant narration.
Dark Places. The MC is not as well developed as Libby Day in Dark Places, but she's definitely up there in status.
The MC, Camille
There were many, but in the bath, her mother poisoning her and the moment she's almost given up and comes to the realisation of everything that has happened.
If they enjoyed a spooky story yes, there were real moments of tension in this book and listening at night really gave me pause.
The father. I love belligerent, ignorant characters that get their just desserts.
Someone who enjoys a very slow start and a story that moves back and forth between settings.
I wouldn't even begin to advice. I've enjoyed this other books. Perhaps the book is better in the printed form than the audio
boring, boring, boring
Long after I should have been asleep I was still listening to this audiobook and that doesn't often happen.
Frank Belgium. His character arc was excellent and he added the all important bit of humour that broke the tension at the right moments.
No, but I would. The only voice that annoyed me was Race. I could have done with out so much gravel. The voice of Bud was brilliant.
I haven't read the print version
The suspense and the weaving of the story
I didn't enjoy the performance very much. The various accents and characters voices came and went and changed, making it confusing. I did enjoy the special effects of the supernatural elements. Very creepy when listening late at night, but the narrator's voice became annoying by the end.
I would read this author again.
The voice was perfect, it moved with the action well.
The ending, the twist, everything.
No, I wouldn't
Very little real information, but rather personal ideas.
None that I could see, but I could not finish it.
The story is amazingly creepy, with a true villain
Anything by the same Author.
No, this was my first but I would gladly listen again.
One of my favourite ghost story authors.
