Its very strange when both MCs are so complex and detailed and real while the secondary characters (ie the cops) were sacrificed to conform and satisfy the coherence and logic of the plot.
Yes, and that damn casino. I can't stop thinking about it. In today's world of instant information, everyone with a cell phone camera, and cameras, in general, everywhere, why would she go there? And moreover, why did nothing come of that? It got to a point that I felt like GF was just grasping at straws for what was going to happen to Amy in the 2nd half but it wasn't well thought through. ****SPOILER****why was she resigned to kill herself on a booze cruise and then the next day change her mind. One days she hates her husband, the next day she wants him back? These behavior patterns aren't consistent with someone who would wait out 2 years or so to plot this whole thing. It seems like she'd be changing her mind about the plans too often to have them align the way that they did. I'm all for painting a woman as a brilliant villain, but she has to actually be brilliant in actions, not just other characters assessments of her for me to believe it.

Well it can be argued that how it ended was brilliant on its own, but I agree with how... Scattered the story felt before it got there. Maybe she really liked the idea of writing in a one night only reunion concert of a 50s do-wop group in front of a sad crowd and couldn't let it go. I actually liked the imagery of that scene, it was very... Well, sad. But yes, within the context of the story, it made little sense.
