I always like listening to a book that has been made into a movie. I have yet to see this movie because I don't want to be disappointed in the move. The book took me to another place and gives you such a happy feeling from the romantic parts.
I am not a big fan of mysteries because they make me too anxious. But! this book was great! The story was told from so many different sides that it always kept you guessing.
This is a new view on the chubby friend story. Made for today's teens.
This should be required reading for young teens to give them the perspective of the "friend" in every group. It will hopefully give others confidence it they are in the same situation. Overall a fun book.
Suspenseful but disappointing
The most disappointing part of “Gone Girl” was the ending! It was like all this time was taken in creating this story that I was sucked into and then the publisher said, “You’re out of time and we need the book done tomorrow” and Flynn just wrote the last two chapters in 5 minutes and disregarded everything else in the book! I would have loved if the characters went to court or someone was murdered. It feels like a real cop out.
My first reaction was to have Nick just die and get his @$$ handed to him. Then I just wanted Amy to die a horrible death. Then the ending gave me the most emotional reaction – pissed.
All in all, I loved this book. I heart was pumping the entire time! But when it came to the last couple chapters I wanted to punch someone. It is worth reading but be prepared to be disappointed
I had higher expectations of a funny and racy story (based on the TV show) and I thought that the book would have more stories beyond what they would show on TV but man was this book boring. Nothing really stood out and the story was lacking.
The reader was clear and didn't really smack their lips when they talked like other readers. Too bad the story was boring.
lack of fulfillment. fell like I wasted a few hours on this.
Like I said, it you love the cheeky and crude laughs from the TV show, don't read the book. Keep watching the show because it is more entertaining. If you want to know the real story, then read the book. I personally just did not like it.
Everything. Couldn't tell you if it is too historically accurate but I reminds me of my mother who grew up in Japan. I have read through this book twice now and it never gets old. The story makes me home sick for the "traditional" Japan and "old fashioned" times.
Hatsumomo's fall from grace.
Yes! holly cow yes.
The move tries to capture the magic of the book but it just does not come close. I love the movie, but I always hate when they stray from the timeline and order of the book. If you like the move, try the book.
This sits in the middle of my list but I really identify with the "eastern" way of raising a child since that is how I was raised.
If you had a traditional "eastern" parent then you will really identify with this book. If you have had close friends as a child who where Asian then you will see a lot of familiar things with their parents.
absolutely, The movie left out so may good parts like all books to movies do.
Chablis, I could not help by smile every time she entered the story.
This book makes you laugh with all the characters in and around Savannah. I did not find a sad moment in the book.
The book gets slow at times but over all a good read.
I would recommend this book to my friends who love romantic books. I liked it but the story was just too....standard romance novel. Their in love, their not in love, and it flip flops the entire book.
The book was read beautifully and the narrator was very expressive.
I would recommend this book to everyone I know! This is going into my list of favorite books.
The terrible awful
All the narrators did so great
I have a hard time picking a favorite charter.
I saw bits and pieces of the movie and thought, what the hay, I will read the book. The book was so great! I just loved it. the movie is spectacular but the book is worlds better. read this book!
