Truly Madly Guilty
Truly Madly Guilty - Liane Moriarty

 

This book was written by the same author as Big Little Lies, and it follows the same format. There is a big event that changes everything. The narrative jumps back and forth between the time before the event, the time after the event, and the night of the BBQ (the main event). Moriarty draws out the big reveal, just like she did in Big Little Lies. I will say I was anxious at first to find out what happened, and it made me spend more time reading just so I could find out. At one point I had an idea what happened, but I wasn't completely right. My friend said this means I was wrong, but in truth, I was partially correct. But still wrong I guess. ;)

 

Bottom line, if you liked Big Little Lies, you will probably enjoy this one. It took a while to get to the point, but it was worth the wait.

A mind blowing surprise. Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty surpassed all my expectations!

 

I won a print copy and the Blu Ray DVD of the HBO series from Beth Fish Reads and HBO. Thanks so much for the great giveaway.

MY REVIEW

 

I won a print copy and a Blu Ray DVD of the HBO series of Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty. I haven’t watched the DVD yet, but I can hardly wait.

 

I was totally blown away by Big Little Lies. I thought I would enjoy reading it, but I had no idea I would laugh my way through my anticipation of who will die and who will be the one who did it.

 

The characters run the gamut, from overpowering to meek. Their personalities are big, even those who try to stay in the background. The women could be my friends and by the time I got done reading I felt like they were.

 

Big Little Lies is really about the ladies, and I use that term loosely. I must say that Madeline is my favorite. If you ever need a friend who is loyal and true, Madeline fits the bill. Her mouth is big, but so is her heart, and she backs down to no one.

 

I was quickly drawn in and flipped the pages as fast as I could read them.

 

All I can say about Liane Moriarty is…she is now on my radar and I will be looking for more of her work.

review SPOILER ALERT! 2018-01-13 09:18
"Truly, Madly, Guilty", by Liane Moriarty.
Truly, Madly, Guilty - Liane Moriarty,Caroline Lee

Lo tengo que decir: tanto almibaramiento me supera. La autora de "The husband's secret", que en su momento mereció el Hall o Fame justificadísimamente, nos ha dejado ahora un libro que relleno de crema y cabello de ángel. Empalagoso.

The Plot (como dicen en inglés): tres matrimonios (Vid y Tiffany, Erika y Oliver, y Clementine y Sam) celebran una barbacos "by chance" en casa de los primeros. La narración va a caballo entre lo que sucedió el día de la barbacoa y lo que ocurre dos meses después. El centro de la trama está en que una de las hijas del matrimonio Erika-Oliver, está a punto de morir ahogada en una especie de fuente que hay en casa de los anfitriones. Por suerte, Erika y Oliver en su día estudiaron FOL, su profesor prestaba mucha atención a la parte de prevención (no como yo), e incluso llevó al centro a profesionales que les dieron una charla sobre RCP (si es que no está pagao lo que hacen algunas profes), y ese día prestaron atención y le hacen unas maniobras a la niña que la reviscolan sin problemas.

Pero el final del libro no puede ser más dulzón. Todos reconciliados, todos contentísimos, todos encantados... En fin, que no.

Para quienes queráis saber más sobre el libro, os dejo un par de enlaces de interés:

Reading progress update: I've read 250 out of 430 pages.
Truly Madly Guilty - Liane Moriarty

 

I was reading this book last night before bed. When I tried to sleep, I couldn't - probably due to that late afternoon espresso (not a good choice). But, as I was lying there trying to sleep, my mind wandered to the book. And suddenly I had an idea what happened at the barbecue. The clues are all there, but I'm not sure if I'm right yet.

 

This book is similar to Pretty Little Lies in that an event occurred and we hear about the characters lives before and after the event with little pieces of what actually happened that night sprinkled in between. 

 

It's a bit annoying because I really want to know what happened...

No one warned you that having children reduced you right down to some smaller, rudimentary, primitive version of yourself, where your talents and your education and your achievements meant nothing.
