Truly Madly Guilty by Liane Moriarty
A Contemporary, 2016 by Flatiron, 415 Pages
What I Didn’t Like:
- If you hate spoilers, skip this bubble. Content warning: drowning, death.
- Much of this one feels like nothing is happening. You’re essentially waiting to find out about something important but nothing much is happening, if that makes sense.
What I Did Like:
- Love the swirling around the BBQ to build anticipation. By the 7th chapter you’re hooked and completely curious about what happened.
- The way this author writes the everyday life stuff is gold. You relate to the mundane and the ordinary. These feel like real people. It’s so impressive.
- The ending works and it’s honestly heartbreaking.
Who Should Read This One:
- Fans of contemporary stories that center around people who feel real struggling with things that are realistic.
My Rating: 3 Stars
- I did enjoy this one and the way it spiraled but I can’t see it appealing to everyone because of the way a lot of this one cycles around waiting for events to happen.
