2023 Book Review: Truly Madly Guilty

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.
