I recommend the audio version of all of Liane Morarty's books. Listen while driving, walking, or running. You could also read the paperback from your beach chair or hammock.
Liane Moriarty, 2014
I’ll be honest – I listened to this one a few years ago. I remember enjoying it mildly but even while listening to the first chapter while writing this review I can’t remember the plot. I still feel comfortable writing a review, because I can tell you this:
- It takes place in Australia, as do the rest of Moriarty’s books to date.
- It involves school moms, domestic violence, and maybe murder. (One online review actually listed the violence as a trigger warning).
- It’s been televised by HBO.
- As with all of Liane Morarty’s books, the story is engaging.
As I listen right now, I’m thinking that narrator Caroline Lee’s voice is easy on the ear with its Australian accent, but also that the pace of narration is painfully slow. I probably set the speed to 1.25 when I listened the first time. I recommend that you do the same. This is not my favorite Moriarty but that doesn’t mean it’s bad.
