Book Review: Truly Madly Guilty

Truly Madly Guilty is another Liane Moriarty book. One I sought out after reading Big Little Lies.

On one hand I read the book in one evening. The hubs and kiddo were playing PS4 so I opened it to hang out with them in the living room and not be too distracted. Eventually, the kiddo went to bed and I went on reading.

On the other hand, it’s super predictable. I seriously found myself saying “I bet x is what happened there. I bet Y is why there.” I was always right. Always. Lots of cliches. Lots of predictable. Lots of “this is pointless.”

It’s the same back and forth in time, multiple point of view type story of BLL.  Which I like. It’s an easy way to build suspense. But the same attention to detail is missing. Example: dialogue tag to a character who isn’t actually in the car. And no, this isn’t a disembodied voice kind of story. LOL

So what kind of story is it? Two friends. Their interactions. How those interactions, interact with those around them. Slice of life type stuff.

℘℘℘ – Three Pages. Despite reading it in one night, I just can’t bring any joy to mind over the book. I wouldn’t push it on friends the way I did BLL. And I certainly won’t go looking for more of Moriarty’s books. If one crosses my path I might pick it up though. LOL.
