Absolutely terrible. Unreadable
I really enjoyed her other books. So sorry that this was published.
Nine perfect strangers
What a huge disappointment! I even pre-ordered it because I’ve so enjoyed all her other books. Big mistake! I would never recommend this novel to anyone. I’m even hesitant to donate it to the library...
Ehhh, didn't care for the way it was laid out. I'm sorry, but I found it underwhelming.
Great concept, enjoyed the twists!
So well written, funny and rich, but lost me a bit at the end.

I usually love her books but this was not a good read. I found my self scanning over parts, getting annoyed over the unrealistic story line, insipid characters. and repetitive character descriptions. Her worst book to date. Don’t waste your money, or even waste your time to borrow from a friend.
It was ok!
I had really high expectations... I love this author but I’d say this is my least favorite of hers. But people rank it as their first I hear! You have to read it if you’re a true fan of Liane nonetheless 😊
Contrary to apparent popular opinion:

This book was different than Liane’s others, I’ll give the naysayers that. But the embodiment of altering realities and the vividness was insatiable. And being someone who has lost someone to suicide, her telling of the family dynamic and it’s effects was interesting to me because it’s so different for everyone but similar in ways she nailed. Definitely one you can’t put down.
In normal Moriarty style, I was completely hooked from the beginning. Her characterisation was great, and it felt like you knew someone like every character you were introduced to. And then... 3/4 through. I stopped believing in the validity of the storyline. It didn’t seem real, not forced, but almost clutching at straws to keep the reader interested in what was happening which didn’t need to happen, her style of writing is so enjoyable. It was still written beautifully, despite the fanciful goings on, and I finished it in two days. But for me, the heart wrenching longing of her previous writing wasn’t there. At the end everything was tied up neatly in a bow, reminiscent of a Kerry Greenwood (I love her books but they are definitely happily ever after) style ending that also didn’t ring true. All in all, a great read, but for me it didn’t live up to her previous victories.
Not my favorite

I was very disappointed in this one. I have read, and loved every one of her books, and this one just didn’t do it for me.

Like other reviews, it was fine, just not nearly as riveting as some of her other novels. Took quite awhile to get into this one.
