I have only read 2 novels by Liane Moriarty, and this was not as good as BIG LITTLE LIES. I thoroughly enjoyed the character development, and the constant POV shifting reminded me of Agatha Christie's AND THEN THERE WERE NONE. Shades of a locked-room mystery existed as well. However, the ending was too rushed and the quickness of Masha's demise were unrealistic. Because of that, I saw this as a good mystery romp and nothing much else.

While I appreciate a good build-up, and Moriarty does a great job establishing her characters, I feel like it took so long before anything really happened. The most thrilling parts of the book were near the end and weren‘t very long. I think fans of her writing style would enjoy this book, but I wanted more of the mystery that I saw in her other books. Also (nothing to do w the book) I hate how the cover is smaller to put the quote in the side.

I was telling a coworker about a meditation retreat I‘m attending soon. She asked me if it‘s going to be like the retreat depicted in the Hulu series. Moriarty did a great job writing about the retreat center. It‘s a lengthy book and seemed to take a long time to get to the shocking parts. Once the story climaxed, it felt rushed and awkward. The participants quickly dispersed and the rest of the book provided updates on the participants‘ lives.

I really enjoyed this read! It was a quick listen, and I loved the narration of it (with all the changes in voice/accents). Would definitely recommend it..

I am on episode 4 of the Hulu adaptation. It's very different but I am really enjoying it as well. :)

Also, the smoothies are to die for!

Thank goodness I had this audio to keep me company through the MOST wretched thunderstorm as I drove to my friend's wedding yesterday!
I watched the series a bit ago and enjoyed it so thought I'd probably enjoy the book. I definitely did! The series definitely veers from the book so the book is still full of surprises and arguably more twisted than the show. I'm pretty sure in both book and show Francis is my favourite☺️

I watched the show on Hulu and enjoyed it but of course the book is even better! They changed quite a few things in the show so it was nice to read the original intent. It made more sense.

Read this as a buddy read, just finished it yesterday. I enjoyed it, it was my second read from her, first being Big Little Lies which I loved. I‘m excited to watch the show on Hulu, probably this weekend. Also I‘d made cinnamon rolls with a tiktok hack I saw about adding heavy whipping cream lol

✨Thank you! Get back into reading again in the first place, I guess. My tentative reading goal would be 35 books this year, but that's not really important...
✨ commitment
✨Started it in June last year, put it off for a long time. I want to finish it as I'd like to start my new reading year afresh afterwards. It's an entertaining read, though and I enjoy it...

Yuki_Onna Happy 2022 to all of you! I'm happy and deeply grateful to have found such wonderful friends here. All the best to everybody!

Started this early in the month and wanted to finish it before year‘s end. Nine people are at a remote health resort for 10 days and don‘t realize how their lives will be changed. It started out slow but got very interesting towards the end. This is a character-driven story which led to a tv series. Definitely a study of human behavior. Amusing!

Exploring the stories behind each character's reason for being at this resort was interesting, and I enjoyed seeing how those stories each played out at the end. But I found the suspense a lot of build-up leading to twists that were kind of weak. I like Moriarty's characters though, and would read more from her.

My #February pick. Of the Moriarty books I've read, this was the second best after Big Little Lies. It started slow, but I ended up loving it in the end. I haven't seen the show (movie?), so Idk how it compares.

@Andrew65

My 10th book of the year is 9 Perfect Strangers! It was a wild and fun ride. Moriarty‘s books are usually in demand so I felt lucky to check it out from my local library with curbside service due to COVID-19. #spookyretreat #shedidwhatnow #book10of2022 #memorialbookchallenge #2021reads #75bookchallenge

Book 25-2021: I love Liane Moriarty and I went to a talk with her about this book when it came out but only just got round to reading it for book club and... I was so disappointed. I thought it had real promise to begin with but the characters never developed beyond surface level and the story just seemed to dwindle and die about two thirds in. The characters were being used as a device to move along the story but the story wasn‘t worth moving 😞

5 💫💫💫💫💫 This was a trip. Very funny. Nine people sign up for a health retreat with Tranquillum House in Australia. Definitely character driven. There is some suspense but fascinating learning about human behavior. Really enjoyed this one. This was the book. I didn't watch the show.

Reynosa8701 I‘ve had this book on my shelf for at least 3years but I always read that it‘s horrible! I may give it a try! 13mo
sharread @Reynosa8701 I can see that I mean it definitely isn't a major thriller. It's more about a bunch of different personalities acting weird. 😅 But it was entertaining to me. 13mo

This was another book club pick and it started off really well, however at a certain point it just got a bit too ridiculous and I completely lost interest in it. I finished it for book club but had I have just read it as a choice I would have panned it. I‘ve bought her new book and I‘m a little cautious about trying it. It‘s a shame as I loved one of her previous books

Has anyone here read the book? I found out the show was based on it and I‘ve finished watching. Is the book better? Should I read it?

Chelsea.Poole Honestly, I wasn‘t blown away by the book. My least favorite of hers that I have read. Started the series but apparently I‘m not compelled enough to keep watching 🤷🏼‍♀️ 1y
JamieArc I didn‘t think the book was that great but thought it translated much better to screen. 1y
rubyslippersreads I wasn‘t crazy about either one, but the book is very different from the miniseries. I agree with @JamieArc that it worked better on screen. 1y
JenniferEgnor Thank you all for the feedback. When I saw the trailer, I was expecting something more cultish. I liked parts of it but was confused about the ending. If you say the show was better, I‘ll take your advice. 1y

Book #50: I cannot wait to watch the show now!! I‘ve seen mixed reviews from fellow readers on the book so I recommend reading it and forming your own opinion. It‘s very character-centric, so if that‘s your thing - like it is mine - then you will definitely like this book. I need to read more of this author.

I haven‘t read this, but I‘m watching it and it is crazy.

JamieArc @kplovesbooks Same! I only read it because of the show. I didn‘t love the book, but thought it would make a great show, and I‘m definitely more interested in the show than the book. 1y
DarkMina I watched the show and thought it was pretty good. I am not really interested in reading the book after watching the show. 1y

5feet.of.fury @kplovesbooks @JamieArc I really didn‘t understand from the plot description what was going to happen… the show itself was really engrossing! I haven‘t read anything by the author …but I‘m pretty much sold after that. 1y
5feet.of.fury @DarkMina I will probably read it at some point, or atleast something by the author. the last couple episodes really seemed like anything could happen. 1y
