Reviews Nine Perfect Strangers

  • Sally Hepworth
    HER BEST YET.I said to my husband recently... I just love the way I feel when I’m reading a Liane Moriarty book. Like I'm surrounded by lovely, neurotic, warm, friends. And Liane has done it again with this wonderful book about nine strangers who go to a health retreat. As always, Liane's observations about life are just so damn spot on. Frances was my favourite guest, but the rest of the gang—Napoleon, Tony, Heather, Ben, Jessica, Carmel, Zo...
  • Paromjit
    Liane Moriarty's latest offering is a hugely enjoyable psychological thriller that is pure fun and entertainment whilst incorporating a look beneath the issues of a wide cast of characters and the moving stories that lie behind the facade of their everyday lives. Set in Australia, Tranquillem House is a health and wellness resort that many clients claim transformed their lives for the better. The latest batch of arrivals are 9 strangers that get ...

    https://theburgeoningbookshelf.blogsp...I absolutely devoured Big Little Lies! I love how Liane Moriarty starts a story all sweet with likeable characters, then slowly a foreboding veil comes across the story and people’s dark side begins to emerge changing a good story into a compelling story.Nine people book into a health resort, Tranquillum House, ready to be transformed into a better, thinner, healthier version of their former self.A washed...

    Frances Welty, popular romance writer who'd just felt her first rejection, had thought her career and future were assured at fifty-five years of age. The impulsive booking at Tranquillum House, a health and wellness resort (which was expensive), had her questioning her own decisions on the long and tiring drive from Sydney. Her arrival showed her a beautiful old home built in the 1800s, renovated to within an inch of its life, with a staircase re...

    I received an advanced reading copy of this book.This was a tough one to put down - nine strangers head off to a health resort, hoping to return home different people. Yes, this was the outcome but the journey they had to get there was not exactly as they planned.Nine Perfect Strangers is going to hit all of her other titles out of the park. It was an excellent read with lots of laughter and What The? moments. It is astounding how supurb Liane's ...
  • Sonja Arlow
    The day I got this book I had to practice utmost restraint not to start reading at 10am. I work for myself, so it was really difficult.I don’t read a lot of chick lit but there are two authors I will make an exception for every time, and Liane Moriarty is one of them.The whole experience was just plain FUN.Nine strangers get together for a 10-day health retreat, one that promises to be transformative beyond their wildest dreams. Some are there ...

    I have to give this one 5* for pure enjoyment levels. I can't remember the last time I laughed so much at the same time as being made to consider life so much whilst reading a book.A weirdly wonderful group of utter stranger's all rock up to a 10 day wellness retreat, all looking for different answers, all hoping to come out the other side all brand new. Well be careful what you wish for is all I'll say...This group dynamic is pure dynamite as we...

    Welcome back, Liane Moriarty! After the disaster (at least to me) that was Truly, Madly, Guilty (the only book I've ever given 1 star to), I was a bit nervous about this one. I loved Big Little Lies & The Husband's Secret and recently loved What Alice Forgot, so I had high hopes but did go in with some hesitation. I'm happy to report I was not disappointed. Nine Strangers come together at a wellness resort, but given that this is a Liane Moriarty...
  • Sarah
    My first Liane Moriarty novel - I was intrigued by this one after the hype surrounding Big Little Lies. This may not be indicative of the quality of her other novels, but I found this to be cliched, predictable and ridiculous. The story focuses on the nine strangers of the title who sign up for a kind of health cleanse at a spa, situated in a remote part of Australia. We quickly learn that something is amiss, and that these people are part of an ...
  • Theresa Smith Writes
    Nine Perfect Strangers is one novel where the anticipation more than lives up to the experience itself. For me, this is Liane Moriarty’s best novel yet. Unfortunately, I can’t tell you much about it, because even a hint of spoilers will quite simply ruin the reading experience for you and I don’t want to be that person! I can however tell you why I think it’s her best and give you a few impressions, which will hopefully be enough of an en...
  • Tania
    Oh what fun! Liane is one of my favorite authors, and I've read nine of her books. This is now one of my top three favorites by her - the other two being, Big Little Lies and What Alice Forgot. One of the reasons I really like her writing is that she has the ability to create a lot of distinct characters in her stories. Sometimes when writers try to do this, I end up becoming confused with who is who, but she gives everyone a unique background ...
  • Candace Chidiac
    I think this might be her best one yet. It went from 0 to 100 real quick! Couldn't put it down.
  • Amelia Strydom
    Wow, this was such an entertaining read! It totally lived up to the hype, in fact, it exceeded my expectations. I love how the author took a health spa - such a wholesome environment- and gave it a sinister twist. The characters were just wonderful, somehow Moriarty managed to create almost a dozen interesting, multi-faceted people, each with a believable and meaningful backstory, not to mention a unique voice. One rarely reads a book with so man...
  • Kat
    Personally I think this is her best yet, but it certainly has an unusual twist to it, that might shock some people! A fascinating choice of a plot twist, that's for sure. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I bet it isn't what you expect! But I refuse to give anything away, you'll have to make your own judgement.
  • Claire Talbot
    I was in the mood for something fun, and Nine Perfect Strangers did not disappoint! Will ten days at a health spa transform your life? Nine people each sign up for a stay at Tranquillum House - a health spa located in a very remote part of Australia, and give up their alcohol, sugar, electronic devices and more to try and transform their lives. We have Frances Welty, a former best-selling romance author, who has now hit the skids after a scathing...
  • Laverne M
    I have read two Liane Moriarty books: The Husband's Secret and Big Little Lies. The stakes of this novel are lower, and with more humor. Nine people go to a health resort, for a variety of reasons, and their backstories and personalities are revealed as this very unorthodox center tests them with different methods.Lead protagonist Frances is a funny, frank, outspoken romance writer facing some failures personally and professionally. A young coupl...
  • Georgia Ardill-Walker
    A fantastic book, bound to generate as much buzz as Big Little Lies did.Moriarty writes the most wonderful, frustrating, fully fleshed out characters that you can't help but empathise with. I thoroughly enjoyed this read!
  • Linda Quinn
    I know others may not agree with me but I think this is Moriarty’s best book yet. She’s written dark, she’s written fluff, she’s written drama and tension. Nine Perfect Strangers is the perfect mix of all and I loved it.
  • Ruth
    How does Liane understand people this well? Every single one of her characters is so believable and so real that you can imagine meeting them on the street the next day. This book delivers everything I love about her books and more. It wasn't my favourite (Big Little Lies still holds that honour) but I enjoyed it a lot. I love it when characters in books have the same random thoughts that I've had. Feeling validated! Thanks Liane
  • Ally Van Schilt
    That was probably the most bizarre Liane book I’ve read yet. It’s certainly unorthodox and I’ll be interested to see how the general public respond to it once it’s out. Had many moments that made me question what on earth was going on, but it was ultimately enjoyable with loveable characters.
  • Karen Whittard
    One of the things that I really liked most about this book is Liane’s way with irony. There were a couple of points in the book where Liane writes about a slow, thriller of a book that one of the characters are reading. How the story developed slowly, how it is very character driven, how the story doesn’t develop much in the first half and it is all about getting to know the characters and that is exactly what Leiane does in this book to her ...
  • Jenny Davies
    Liane Moriarty’s books start out light and bright with rainbow painted toenails so you are unprepared for when she chops you in the windpipe. She lulls you into a false sense of easy reading with all her charming characters and delightfully placed exclamation marks – so funny! – and then she elbows you in the head. It hurts. Liane does this again in Nine Perfect Strangers. I was enjoying the trip to the health retreat with the amiable lady ...
  • Janet Brown
    This was my first introduction to Liane Moriarty's writing, having been intrigued by the hype surrounding her earlier books and the HBO adaptation of Big Little Lies. And honestly? I'm not entirely sure what I think. While the characterisation was strong (despite myself, I found myself invested in the outcome for the 'nine perfect strangers'), some of the writing made me cringe. There's a chance that the preponderance of adjectives and adverbs wa...
  • Heidi
    Advance reading copy read, November release date. Another page-turner from Liane Moriarty, with lots of laughs, suspense, some horror, and great character development. Nine people go to a high-end Australian wellness retreat center that will indeed transform their lives in 10 days, as promised.
  • Demi
    Definitely one of her best. Great variety in character traits. I’m sure once this is released that readers will enjoy it just as much as her previous novels. Captivating plot that seems to be very modern and set in the heart of Australia which I always love.
  • Shelly
    Well, I opened my Kindle earlier this week and was pleased to find that my pre-ordered copy of the latest offering from Liane Moriarty had been delivered and so - as much as I was enjoying some Annie Seaton - I'll be honest and say I just had to get into this one.. I'm not much for savouring the anticipation. I'm kind of an instant gratification type of gal!Nine Perfect Strangers is a tale about 9 people, who for varying reasons in their life fee...
  • Jacki (Julia Flyte)
    Liane Moriarty can write books you can hardly put down, like The Husband's Secret and Big Little Lies, but not all her books are as good as that and unfortunately this is one of the not-so-good ones. While it's still very readable, the story is silly and unsatisfying. It has an enormous build up with not a lot of payoff.The story is about nine people (who incidentally are not perfect strangers - two pairs are married couples and one is someone's ...
