This book made me want to stab something. Nobody in it was likeable except Tiffany the former stripper and her husband Vid, who spoke like Gru. Everyone else acted like elementary schoolers. The passive aggressiveness, the snide comments, the two-faced behavior. Nothing spoke of adults. And the c...

I think the dual timelines don't really work in this novel. The chapters switch between the ill-fated 'Day of the Barbecue' and two months afterward until halfway through the book. Obviously this is intended to build suspense but Moriarty spends too long skirting around what actually happened at the...

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 ...

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...

Lo tengo que decir: tanto almibaramiento me supera.

The Plot (como dicen en inglés): tres matrimonios (Vid y Tiffany, ...

It's not a thriller. Imagine that line as spoken by Arnold Schwarzenegger to his class in Kindergarten Cop. I start here because I saw a review saying what a disappointing thriller it was, and it would be disappointing if that was what Moriarty were shooting for. It's also not a romance, or a myst...

I was surprised that this felt like a "harder read" than some of the other Liane Moriarty books I have read. I am not sure I identified with enough of the characters or their situations but it was still skillfully woven around very ordinary lives. I tried it back during christmas and gave up on the ...
