DNF: I Have Never Cared So Little About a BBQ Before in My Life
Truly Madly Guilty - Liane Moriarty

I DNF at 35 percent. I could not go on anymore. Nothing was happening and the characters were some of the most aggravating people I have read about in some time. I still don't know what happened at this BBQ that most of the story was supposed to revolve around. I initially thought I would just read until this mythical event happened, but I just ceased to care and decided to be done with this tiresome book.

 

"Truly Madly Guilty" bounces back and forth between characters that used to be friends (or something like friends) who have been avoiding each other since an event happened at a BBQ. The two characters who the book seems to be mostly following around are Erika and Clementine. I can't say I was a fan of either of these women. 

 

The book is so slow moving. I just could not take reading about anyone anymore. Everyone in this book seemed to be low-key awful in different ways. 

 

I also didn't like how this was set up. We keep following people before the BBQ, after the BBQ. At this point I hope it was something epic like aliens beamed on down or something. I hate books that do this thing where everyone avoids actually mentioning a momentous event that all of them would have at least brought up once. 

 

I only picked this up since everyone has been screaming at me to read "Big Little Lies". But if it is set up like this, I will just pass.

"Now it seemed like she could twist the lens on her life and it from two entirely different perspectives."
What Alice Forgot - Liane Moriarty

It was a really good story. It speaks volumes to the nature of life. Happiness, grief, disappointment, loneliness, and love all play important parts in everyday life. However they begin to mean so much more when you can't remember your life. Alice is lost in a sea of confusion when 10 years of her life goes missing. The things she learns about herself may just mean the difference between what really is disaster and her happily ever after.

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.
