Review: Lie With Me



Title: Lie With Me
Author: Sabine Durrant
Publication Date: December 29. 2016
Genre: Psychological Suspense
Recommended If You Like: unlikable and unreliable (but fascinating) narrators, highly surprising twists and turns, the past coming into the present

The Book:

Lies have always led the narrator's life, and gotten him to where he is. But when lies take him on what should be an idyllic holiday, he begins to realize his lies may have finally caught up with him this time.

What I Liked:

The ending! The ending completely shocked me, and I loved it for doing that.

What's really impressive is that Durrant has created an unlikable narrator who didn't turn me off from reading the book. I wanted to keep going on the journey with him, find out if he was going to be able to redeem himself, and find out what was going to happen to him.

Anything I Didn't Like?

This is another book that runs a little slow for my tastes. I love a good slow build, but not when my interest starts to wane some.

So...?

This is book that takes you on a journey, with an unreliable narrator who you just might feel for, and an ending twist that will absolutely surprise you.
