Random Reviews: Truly, Madly, Guilty
Book Title: Truly Madly Guilty
Author: Liane Moriarty
Reviewed By: Lynn D.
It was interesting how Liane Moriarty spun out this story.
Something dramatic happened at a neighborhood barbecue - something that effected each of the characters' lives. It was both frustrating and tantalizing as the chapters jump from tidbits about how each of the characters was reacting to the "something" that happened, to the "Day of the Barbecue," and back. It was not until halfway through the story that the author revealed what actually happened at the barbecue - frustrating and tantalizing.
Why I picked it up: I read The Husband's Secret by Moriarty and enjoyed that so I thought I would give her another try.
Why I finished it: You had to keep reading to find out what happened at the barbecue - why they were all falling apart in so many different ways. Once you knew, the rest was anti-climactic, but you still wanted to see how they turned out.
Who would you recommend it to: I hesitate to say "anyone who likes chick lit" because I didn't think it was chick lit, but apparently Goodreads did. So, anyone who likes chick lit or contemporary stories set in Australia.
