    It is Nick and Amy Dunne's fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick's clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn't doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media - as well as Amy's fiercely doting parents - the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he's definitely bitter - but is he really a killer?

    This audiobook was my first book away from the only author I ever read. I took the risk on this one and I am so glad I did. Loved the storyline- had me guessing in so many different spots. I can tell the author really thought the story through and had made sure everything would flow correctly. I've listened to this audiobook twice now and wouldn't change a thing. The narration was perfect. The actors fit the parts and I felt like I could see them while I was listening. This audiobook is perfect for the listener that likes twists and turns!

    Libby Day was seven when her mother and two sisters were murdered in "The Satan Sacrifice of Kinnakee, Kansas". As her family lay dying, little Libby fled their tiny farmhouse into the freezing January snow. She lost some fingers and toes, but she survived, and famously testified that her 15-year-old brother, Ben, was the killer. Twenty-five years later, Ben sits in prison, and troubled Libby lives off the dregs of a trust created by well-wishers who've long forgotten her.

    Story

    After reading Gone Girl and loving it, I was so excited to see that Gillian Flynn had two other books on audible. I was discouraged because the amount of reviews/ rating didn't seem as great as those for Gone Girl. I finally bought Dark Places yesterday and holy *@#!- it was so good!!!! Exceeded my expectations completely.

    Yes, it is dark- there were a few uncomfortable moments, but well worth the uncomfort to get the rest of the story. The author has a way of crafting a story that just pulls you in and you feel like you can see and indentify with the characters. I typically buy audio books to listen to while I work at my desk job all day- but, with this book, I listened during lunch and while driving, walking, etc. I just had to know what would be revealed next.

    I am now moving on to by Sharp Objects. If it is anything like the other two Gillian Flynn books, I will not be disappointed!

  • The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty: The First of the Classic Erotic Trilogy of Sleeping Beauty

    In the traditional folktale of Sleeping Beauty, the spell cast upon the lovely young princess and everyone in her castle can only be broken by the kiss of a Prince. It is an ancient story, one that originally emerged from and still deeply disturbs the mind's unconscious. Now Anne Rice's retelling of the Beauty story probes the unspoken implications of this lush, suggestive tale by exploring its undeniable connection to sexual desire.

    Story

    I am struggling to find the right words to review this audiobook. The author took an interesting plot idea and turned it into a really sad look at Stockholm Syndrome. Sleeping Beauty isn't swept off her feet, she's kidnapped, abused and downright pitiful. But, I......guess...........she.........kind.......of ..........likes it? I'm all for getting down and dirty and being rough around all kinds of edges, but this was beyond that. I tried- I really did. I wanted to like it, but it just made me feel really weird. And, not in a good way.
