The new novel from Liane Moriarty, the #1 "New York Times" bestselling author of "The Husband s Secret, Big Little Lies, "and" What Alice Forgot," about how sometimes we don t appreciate how extraordinary our ordinary lives are until it s too late. What a wonderful writer smart, wise, funny. Anne Lamott Six responsible adults. Three cute kids. One small dog. It s just a normal weekend. What could possibly go wrong? In "Truly Madly Guilty," Liane Moriarty turns her unique, razor-sharp eye towards three seemingly happy families.Sam and Clementine have a wonderful, albeit, busy life: they have two little girls, Sam has just started a new dream job, and Clementine, a cellist, is busy preparing for the audition of a lifetime. If there s anything they can count on, it s each other.Clementine and Erika are each other s oldest friends. A single look between them can convey an entire conversation. But theirs is a complicated relationship, so when Erika mentions a last minute invitation to a barbecue with her neighbors, Tiffany and Vid, Clementine and Sam don t hesitate. Having Tiffany and Vid s larger than life personalities there will be a welcome respite.Two months later, it won t stop raining, and Clementine and Sam can t stop asking themselves the question: "What if we hadn t gone"? In "Truly Madly Guilty," Liane Moriarty takes on the foundations of our lives: marriage, sex, parenthood, and friendship. She shows how guilt can expose the fault lines in the most seemingly strong relationships, how what we don t say can be more powerful than what we do, and how sometimes it is the most innocent of moments that can do the greatest harm."

2.0 Truly Madly Stupidly
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...

3.0 Truly Madly Guilty by Liane Moriarty
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...

1.0 DNF: I Have Never Cared So Little About a BBQ Before in My Life
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 ...

3.0 Truly Madly Guilty
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...

3.0 "Truly, Madly, Guilty", by Liane Moriarty.
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, ...
