Not able to see the film until Tuesday so I tried to resist the podcast but couldn’t resist.
Having seen on Rosamund Pike performing live theatre (poorly) I’m nervous about her playing this role but every single review (and your podcast) is incredible so I look forward to seeing her finest moment!
I’m one of the few people (I’ve spoken with) who loved the ending of the book so I’m hoping the film keeps it. Thanks for the podcast.
Hope you enjoyed it; it’s certainly sparked a lot of debate! – Kate
Really enjoyed the show. I agreed with Kate that I felt a bit manipulated by the twist, and how big a twist it was. However the standard of the writing and the mystery created drove me on to continue reading. Similar to Rob, my sympathy was much more with Nick, and like Simon, if you see the film before reading the book, you probably won’t bother with the book which would be a shame. I liked the other themes in the book – relationships, economic problems, the role of the mass media. They added to my enjoyment. My main issue with the book was that I wasn’t sure if it was realistic that someone could wind a case so tightly and so securely that the wrong person would be convicted. But as part of the storyline, it had me hooked. In conclusion, well worth reading.
So glad you enjoyed it!
