    Read a while ago so maybe I should reread. Perhaps it's not my genre (haven't read other thrillers). Certainly interesting characters but just not something I liked or maybe liked reading? I actually found the discussion around it more interesting. So I guess I'm glad to have read and would recommend to argue about it. (P.S. I'm bumping my initial 3 stars to a 4 because I love the analysis I've heard of the ending).

    A great thriller

    I will admit I am someone who never saw the movie. Alot of times i prefer the books over the movies. This had me hook from the very begining with all the suspense and plot twists. It is a thriller that will keep you guessing what is next till the very last page.

    I listened to this book. It was ok, it left me confused. A lot of plot holes. Her other books are much better.

    So Many Twists

    This book left my head spinning. I didn't like the characters, although I don't think you are supposed to. There are some graphic scenes, but the story is well written and kept me turning pages even when I didn't like where the story was going.

    Book starts off slow at first and then it got really good. The twist in the book really caught me off guard. It leaves you with a twisted surprise ending. Book and movie were pretty good.

    I couldn't wait to read this because I had heard amazing reviews and then the movie came out. Boy, I don't know what it was but this read was so slow and predictable for me. Everyone said they were so surprised by it, but I called it. Her prose was lackluster and the story was annoying to me as a feminist. It wasn't promoting anything for more annoyance with the situation the couple was in. It switches gears midway through to not focus on Nick, but I was couldn't even read past the 5th chapter. It is thrilling for many other people.

    This book definitely caught my attention and kept me reading. I never would have suspected the outcome of the story and definitely a major twist on it. I would recommend this book to anyone especially if you like thrillers.

    Great book and great writing. What a twist at the end, she draws you in. My feelings toward the characters changes at the end of the book. Not the ending I expected.

    I read this book and it's absolutely amazing! I could never figure it out the end, it's not boring or predictable. I love how she writes, and after this I read all the books she wrote and it was surprising, I'm waiting for more books from Flynn.

    I bought the book after seeing the movie. They were both great, but I love the way a book gives more detail and nuances than a movie ever can. The ending was really a surprise to me and I loved that. I suppose the only reason I did not give the book five stars was that I really did not understand the motive of the protagonists.

    This book was a page turner. I couldn't want to find out what she was going to do to him next. If you like suspense novels you should definitely read this one!

    A really good book if you like to be guessing until the last page. Great read. I don't' usually pick up suspenseful thrillers these days but this had me hook from page 1

    This book was a very good read, I thought the twist was very good, and it definitely surprised me at the end. Although I kind of expected it to happen, I didn't expect it to happen the way that it did. I really can't wait for the movie to come out so I can compare it to the book.
