Liked that some characters were based upon real people, with a bit of artistic licence.

I thoroughly enjoyed three quarters of the book. Bearing in mind that I read Gone Girl Before listening to this book: The last quarter made me feel at times, frightened for the characters I liked, at times actually in tears at the actions of one of the characters; and towards the end, wondering if I really wanted to know the ending. I tried to find a spoiler but couldn't. Glad now I stuck with it.
