I like everyone having a voice and I enjoy listening while I'm doing other things.
i just love the way flynn writes. It's intelligent and attainable. I guess perhaps the narration helps to solidify the characters traits and demnor, but the dialogue keeps me interested. Particularly, in this story, the back handed, back stabbing and snidenss that the townees exchange and are involved in - remind me of home. The cattiness and clickiness of 'those' girls and the women that raised them.
I can't wait to listen to Dark Places. If it's half as good as Gone Girl (my first Flynn novel) and this, Sharp Objects, I'm hooked!
I haven't read the print version, but the audio was excellent.
I thought this book had many humerous moments. I most identified with "Go's" character, her humor, and would send my fiance quotes of the day. I think overall, though, each character took some unexpected turns and I was surprised to see the Slim Shady - you know? I was absolutely hooked until the end.
The only thing I didn't like about listening to the book, was that it was hard to 're-read' parts that I enjoyed. Like Go's comments. It got annoying trying to go back and listen. A book would have been nice to highlight those lines.
