    • Good read. As usual with Lianne Moriarty, her characters are well developed and story line absorbing.
    • Liane Moriarty knows how to create characters who leap off the pages and sit in your lounge long after you've read the last chapter. They are all non-cookie-cutter, and yet totally believable. I couldn't wait to discover all their secrets and to see how their future unfolded. I loved the light, heat and scent of Australia that enveloped me while reading this book. This was a fast, beautiful read, with "issues" to get your teeth into and think about - my favourite kind of book.So why only 4 stars? I found the story line a bit disappointing. Things happened and characters changed, but it wasn't as profound as I had expected.Still, a thoroughly enjoyable book. Don't miss out on it just because it's not "Big Little Lies".
    • Nine guests come to stay at a health resort, each of them having reached a difficult point in life - recovering from divorce or bereavement or career downturn, and/ or simply dealing with the effects of ageing. The health resort is a blend of draconian strictness and blissfully therapeutic - hidden alcohol is confiscated from the guests' luggage, but if you're secretly feeling down about your age, you'll be magically whisked off for a rejuvenating facial. Yet the resort owner has a sinister secret agenda, and the guests must bond together to extricate themselves from some bizarre challenges. Every one of the guests uses this time at the resort to come to terms with the past, reassess their identity and find the strength to face the future.One of the great achievements of this book is the way Moriarty gradually introduces all the characters, so there is no confusion between them. No mean feat when you are dealing with nine guests, and at least 3 members of staff, all flung together.For some reason, this book reminded me of Agatha Christie, with the different characters bonding in an artificial environment. However, there is no real comparison, I'm just curious whether anyone else saw this as well!
    • I have enjoyed reading all of her books but Nine Perfect Strangers is a challenge. Terribly boring & unrealistic. I was not able to finish the book.
    • Love Liane Moriarty books!!
