I love, love, love Liane Moriarty's books. While I would say that this one wasn't my absolute favourite, I do love the little twist at the end and the characters were enjoyable!
I found it difficult to gather what was going on, too many characters introduced before the
plot got underway....mysterious yet amusing...none of the characters stood out for me
Lovely story of two sisters and their progeny, living with the mystery of a couple who disappeared and the infant they left behind. Although this sounds ominous, most of the story is far from it. The book is delightful, well-written, and a good read.
This book is tough to review. It was not what I expected. I went into the book thinking it would be a light, fun read but it is not. But this is definitely not a bad thing. I felt that the parts of the story that touched on the very serious issue of post-partum depression were convincing and felt very real. I grew attached to the interesting and dysfunctional family that the book focuses on. I ended up guessing the main mystery, but I loved the unexpected twist at the end that seemingly came out of nowhere. Overall, this was a pretty great read by one of my favourite authors.
Fun characters, enjoyable, easy read. Love the author!
Really enjoyed this book and loved the characters - was kind of sad when I reached the last chapter as I wanted to see what happens next with the Scribbly Gum residents.
Another good book by Moriarty. A step up from her previous, this one shows how she began moving toward adding "issues" to her novels. Here we have postpartum depression, a disorder often trivialized or discredited outright. I also liked the mystery, the characters and the blossoming of Veronika, Margie and especially Rose.
Another good book from Ms. Moriarty. This one is laugh out funny.
