I'm honestly kind of of disappointed in this book. I'd heard so many rave reviews from friends who read, and loved it. Perhaps I set my expectations slightly too high because of that, but this just didn't live up to what I was hoping for. I understood what Ng was going for. I saw the picture that sh...

I listened to an audio copy borrowed from my local e-library. I was immediately hooked in and loved pretty much everything about it. Delving into all the history, little details, and the descriptions won't be for everyone though.

Everything I Never Told You is a slow paced book that is more a character study and lesson in life than a story. The Lee family is a mixed Chinese American family set in the 1970's. The story starts with the discovery that the middle child, Lydia, has gone missing and is soon found at the bottom of ...

I loved this book which centred on the family of a girl that recently died. It was so much more than I ever thought it would be. The story centers on Lydia, a sixteen year old girl who is found dead in a lake near her home. After this discovery we learn about each member of her family and how thei...

Very good book to listen to with a partner. Any one who grew up in a family or has a family (practically everyone) can relate to it on some level.

Dear Louisa, I think you knew, back then, that my fractured heart was not yours for the keeping. Thank you for backing off and making it possible for me to reclaim my life. Shattered by loss and grief, bewildered by the evaporation of my most cherished dreams, I turned to a familiar face when lo...

It finally happened. My book group picked a book that made me want to ugly-cry. Celeste Ng’s Everything I Never Told You hit me hard. Everything I Never Told You, set in Ohio in the late 1970s, gave me a ringside view of a family that has a hard time being honest about the emotional hurts they infli...

I’ve read a lot of books lately that involve a missing person (We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves, The Girl on the Train) butEverything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng is actually less about how the girl in question, Lydia, has disappeared and focuses more on the family she has left behind. It’s ...
