When will I learn that books with the hype are rarely worth it! I am glad I did not purchase this as I would have demanded a refund! I got 132 pages in and could not could not understand why I was continuing. I could not find the "psychologically thrilling" parts. It was dry, slow and completely without intrigue. I don't know what happened to Megan and I don't care! Don't believe the hype, there are thousands of better books out there.
What a waste of time! The premise of this book was intriguing, but the plot was unbelievable, repetitive and tedious. There wasn't a likable character, and they all became more unlikable as the story went on. And on. I actually finished it, but it was not worth the effort.
This was one of the best reads I've had in a long, long time. I think that those who couldn't get into it because of the confusion, needed to go back and reread some of the chapters or paragraphs, until they had a clear idea of who was speaking in the book. It does switch characters and also goes back and forth from now and then. Anyway, rereading some of it helped me move forward until I didn't need any more help. In the end, it took me two days to catch up on sleep; so yeah, for me, it was one of those stay up all night books. I did despise the main character for her whining, but thats what the author intended, Im sure.
Wow! This is one of those books that just leaves me reeling when it ends! It's different and I was hesitant in the beginning because the protagonist is seriously flawed. She is a heavy drinker and she experiences blackouts. She's obviously in alot of pain and she doesn't handle it well at all. She does not appear to be mentally stable. But you do feel for her, while also wanting to wring her neck. She's very human. I kept thinking this is not what I expected. Then about 50 pages in, as events begin to unfold and police are investigating a missing person case, I was pulled in wanting to know what happened and who is involved. It winds up being a gripping read and quite intense in the end. To sum it up, "Oh what a tangled web we weave". Well done!
I enjoyed listening to the audio of this book and found it very intriguing. It had a great plot and believable characters. It is told by different perspectives from the different characters and is hard to figure out exactly what is actually happening until the very end. It held my interest throughout and I actually liked it better than Gone Girl.
