I wondered how Gatsby got his money. The endless descriptions of nothing.
The main character was my favorite.
It's already a movie.
This book just made rich people (which I'm not) look cold and heartless. Gatsby tried to buy friends and in the end it didn't pay.
I'm used to listening to books with an American or British accent. However, the accent of this reader was VERY difficult fore to understand, which also made it difficult to follow the story. I often listen to books on 1 1/2 speed or even 2. I had to listen to this one at 1 AND rewind 30 seconds every few minutes. The plot and story are very good. I have NOTHING against people with accents or the narrator. It just was a pain to listen to this otherwise great story. I might download the Kindle book just to read what I'm sure I missed!
The point of view was nice. The book was refreshing and insightful if you enjoyed the series. Not a must read, but good to know.
This book also ended with a cliff hanger like the rest. This one even ends in a courtroom. Despite my dislike for those endings, this is one of my favorite book series. I feel like I truly know the Barringon/Cliffton families!
This book was dull and boring in the beginning. A lot like the main character, Rachel, but when it picks up--u can't put it down!
She never ceases to amaze me! She has THE BEST endings. I usually predict the endings of books and I choose my books from the NY Times best sellers list. Gillian has raised the bar!!!
Gillian Flynn doesn't disappoint! After listening to Gone Girl, I didn't expect this book to be able to top it. The writing is deep, multi dimensional, and clever. I think Gillian Flynn is my new favorite author!
I really enjoyed the multiple story lines and so much going on with 3 of the 4 ladies. I wish Claire had more of a role. Very thrilling!
I don't like cliff hangers, but I loved the rest of the book. I like the multiple storylines going on at once.
It was full of action throughout. I kept expecting the entire thing to be a dream during the first hour. Lol!
Her long detailed narratives/ thoughts and metaphors were boring. The drug use, hunger, tragedy, love story and hustle were suspenseful...
