    Maybe I'm just spoiled by domestic thriller authors like Gillian Flynn and Megan Abbott, maybe I want all the wrong things from Moriarty, but whatever the reason, her books never pull me in. This is the third of her books that I've tried and once again I’m overcome by the slowness, the lack of pull… the sheer dullness of the characters.Perhaps I do expect the wrong things, but I don't think that's completely my fault. I'm starting to realize ...

    Oh geez, don't shoot the messenger here but this one left me flat. I'm a big fan of Liane Moriarty, but not only was this book about 200 pages too long, the storyline was weak, I didn't like any of the characters, and the "big reveal/secret" Moriarty usually puts in her books was a big letdown. Once it came out, and believe me, the almost 300 pages leading up to it was hard enough, all I could think was "that's what all of these people are going ...

    This SLOW building character-driven story of a disastrous BBQ truly tested my intestinal fortitude, but I stuck it out, and once I made it to the half-way point (whew!) when the (ho hum) proposal is finally made, the first shocking twist occurred tempting me to stay with it and discover what would happen next.TRULY MADLY GUILTY is a story that entices the reader in Chapter 1 to find out what really happened at an innocent neighborhood BBQ, but wh...

    Something terrible happened at a BBQ, a BBQ that three couples plus three young children attended. Whether this book works for the reader depends on patience, patience because it takes quite awhile before, we find out what happened. Not that a great deal, back stories of the characters, their thoughts, doesn't happen in alternating chapters, so it depends on how interesting you find their stories. Obviously it worked for me.So much is happening h...

    Alright, before I begin my review of this book I need to admit something. A secret shame. This is my very first Liane Moriarty book! Yes I know, I know! I can hear you SHARPLY GASP! Her books seem right up my alley, how could I have not read Big Little Lies, or The Husband's Secret? "SHAME ON YOU MELISSA!" I hear you yell! "She is one of Australia's most loved authors!!" I have heard such good things, but guiltily have never had the chance or inc...

    At one point, I was sure that I was going to give this two stars. And then I read a little farther and was certain that it had redeemed itself enough that I might give it four. I have so many mixed feelings about this book. Ultimately, I think I landed somewhere right in the middle of loving it and hating it. Three stars doesn't necessarily mean this is an average book; it just reflects my complicated feelings about it. Because there’s some thi...

    Well, shoot. This was a strangely unsatisfying read for me. The long tease about what happened at that dang backyard barbecue just wasn't quite worth the wait. Looked good, smelled good, but upon tasting it, I wanted more salt and pepper.

    Did you ever hear this old joke?Worried that their son was too optimistic, the parents of a little boy took him to a psychiatrist. In an attempt to dampen the boy’s spirits, the psychiatrist showed him into a room piled high with nothing but horse manure. Instead of displaying disgust, the little boy climbed to the top of the pile and began digging.“What are you doing?” the psychiatrist asked.“With all this s**t” the little boy replied,...

    Obviously I loved this. I read it all in one day. Her books are so addictive—that's the best word to describe them. The epitome of a page turner.Like I said in my review of Big Little Lies, Moriarty is great at crafting complex characters. The 6 adults, and even the 3 children, in this story or so well developed and interesting. They have flaws and personalities that will make you love them and hate them. It's that complexity that takes this bo...
