A bizarre yet entrancing book that wasn't at all what I expected. Humorous, strange, and fun. Full of characters that are equally annoying and relatable. More of a dark comedy than a thriller. Excellent performance by narrator Caroline Lee.

Loads and loads of WTF moments.

LapReader I find her voice too Australian for my liking and I am an Australian. 2d
Zoes_Human @LapReader 😂 😂 😂

I'm from the southeastern United States and have a Southern accent. I definitely know the feeling you mean because I've heard some accents from my region and though “Oh, honey, that drawl is too much.“

I guess I'm glad that I don't know enough about Australian accents to recognize the flaw. 😀

Nine strangers go to a wellness retreat and it is not exactly what they signed up for. I couldn‘t put it down and needed to know what happened, but the middle section was a bit too bizarre and felt a little loose like it was diving into this meta idea but didn‘t fully commit to it. The story could have been the same or stronger without the introduction of the new protocol at the health resort.

Ugh. Not a fan.

Nine strangers all with different back stories go to this health resort, so to speak, with hopes of transformation. Maybe to fix a relationship, to lose weight, to boost their self esteem.

What exactly is the secret to this transformation?

I don‘t want to ruin it for people who have not read it, but it is ridiculous. And it just spiraled out of control.

If you are a Moriarty fan, or hoping to be one, stick with Big Little Lies.

4thhouseontheleft I kind of liked the satirical aspect (at least the first half), but it is such a weird book. 3w
KristenDuck @4thhouseontheleft I can see why that would be entertaining but it just got too weird for my taste. And I like weird. And I felt like there was never a climax. 3w
knoves @4thhouseontheleft I agree, it was hard for me to get into but I think it‘s because I‘m use to her books focusing on a smaller number of perspectives. This one seemed a little less organized. It was a weird one. 2w
janeycanuck I ended up liking this but it‘s so unlike anything else she‘s written. It‘s almost like a different person wrote the second half. 2w

“Women and their bodies! The most abusive and toxic of relationships. Masha had seen women pinch at the flesh of their stomachs with such brutal self-loathing they left bruises. Meanwhile their husbands fondly patted their own much larger stomachs with rueful pride.”

The ending kind of left me hanging and it took too long to get there. I like this author but her last two books weren‘t as good as some of her previous ones.

ljuliel I really liked a couple of her others but this one gets a lot of so so ratings so I might give it a pass. 1mo

Since I just started Nine Perfect Strangers, I have realized I read a lot of Liane Moriarty books!! So I‘m curious which is your favorite!

Personally I have read :
Big Little Lies
The Hypnotist‘s Love Story
What Alice Forgot
The Husband‘s Secret
Truly Madly Guilty

Out of the above books, my favorite so far is still Big Little Lies!

I also have a special place in my heart for What Alice Forgot.

Now what about you?

#lianemoriarty

marleed Big Little Lies but I also enjoyed reading about Easter set in the fall Down Under in The Husbands Secret. 1mo
wanderinglynn I‘ve only read What Alice Forgot, but I enjoy it. 1mo
KristenDuck @wanderinglynn I think you‘d enjoy her other books as well! 1mo

Chelsea.Poole I have read them all except 2: The Hypnotist's Love Story and What Alice Forgot. I need to get to these ones! I like her 😊 1mo
Prairiegirl_reading My favourite so far is The Husband‘s Secret even though I didn‘t love the ending. It definitely wasn‘t what I was expecting and a pleasant surprise. I‘ve since read big little lies and the hypnotist‘s love story and have a couple others on mount tbr. She is auto-buy author for me! 1mo

SabrinaS @KristenDuck im enjoying it! I'm just trying to work out what the twist is going to be, I got a feeling its going to be an unexpected strange twist! 1mo
katlyn447 What Alice Forgot is my favorite. I regularly find myself thinking about it even though it's been awhile. Loved the audio version especially. :) 1mo
Megabooks I‘ve read all her books. The Hypnotist‘s Love Story is my favorite. Truly Madly Guilty is least fav. I enjoyed Nine Perfect Strangers - you should read it. And I want to reread Three Wishes! 1mo
KristenDuck @Megabooks truly madly guilty is my least favorite too - I think my expectations were too high. I haven‘t read Three Wishes yet. 1mo
Megabooks @KristenDuck idk how I missed where you said you just started NPS!! I figured out the twist before Heather (the character), and I like it when she writes humor. Three Wishes is a romcom about triplets. 1mo
KristenDuck @Megabooks added to my TBR List! 1mo

KristenDuck @hes7 i loved the character development in what Alice forgot. Very well done. 1mo

I was worried. I really didn‘t enjoy Truly, Madly Guilty, and I was afraid I wouldn‘t like this either. Reader, I had nothing to be worried about! Thoroughly enjoyable with excellent pacing, fun dialogue and an engaging premise.

Yesterday, my frustrations with my life came to point, and now, I‘m trying to clear my head. It was really great to finish a book this morning about people getting on with life. Sometimes shit works out! 👍🏻

I was extremely disappointed in this book! I absolutely loved Big Little Lies and had high hopes for this story, but it unfortunately fell flat. The storyline was so ridiculous that I found myself just trying to get to the end. Also, the fact that there were nine main characters and points of views made it hard to build a connection with any of them. It was just an all-around terrible book.

Mdargusch I loved this book! It's funny how it seems readers either love it or hate it. 3mo

I‘m so surprised that it seems readers either love or hate this book. I loved it! Moriarty‘s snarky look at real people and real lives always seems so funny and honest to me. Then there‘s the twist- and it became a thriller! I listened to most of it on audiobook and it is excellent!

This book took me by surprise. I had to readjust my expectations a few times, and actively decide to lean into its more farcical elements or they‘d have seemed too ridiculous to take any of the rest of it seriously. But it was an easy, enjoyable read, with several characters who I found myself rooting for affectionately. Didn‘t charm and fascinate and move me, like Big Little Lies managed to do. But still fun.

Nine perfect strangers check into a health retreat, where their “protocol” is a little unusual.... this book was half way between a pick and so so for me. It‘s the type of novel you read when you don‘t want anything too “heavy” - such as when you‘re at the beach or between bigger books that need a bit of brain power.

Not her best work, sadly. I liked the premise; self help and personal improvement is a huge market and who doesn‘t want to be transformed?! But the twist is a bit daft, the back stories take up the bulk of the book so it seems to take forever to actually get going, and the characters themselves are a bit on the nose, tbh. A quick and fairly absorbing read, but Moriarty has written better. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I keep trying to give Liane Moriarty a chance but I just cannot love her writing style. I will finish this book since I have so much time invested so far. I just dont understand why she drags her story out for so long before she gets to the big moment (which ends up being so anticlimactic)

Mrs_Organized_Chaos Once again I am disappointed in this author! If I didnt already own Big Little Lies, I would never pick up another one of her books again. 4mo

Did manage to get some concentrated #reversereadaton hours in this afternoon and finished the second half of this! I enjoyed it, although sometimes it was spread a little thin amongst so many characters. I had also expected this to be a locked room mystery for some reason and that's really not it at all. Typical LM, the only mystery aspect is what really drove these characters to the Tranquillum House spa in the first place.

This book is between a Pick & a So-So. It was a weird strange road but I enjoyed reading it. Masha was very over the top and didn‘t seem like a real person. There was a lot going on with everyone‘s back stories, but it didn‘t get confusing. Everyone was a very distinct character.

I think I liked Big Little Lies more. This book was just all over the place. Not in a messy way. A health resort I never want to go to.

No. But it was an enjoyable read and I wasn‘t able to guess how everything was going to work out. There were parts that heart my heart, but I would still recommend this one #booked2019 #bookgiftedtoyou (a wonderful Christmas gift from my husband)
