    • 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.
    • i’ve only read two other books by liane moriarty (big little lies and the husband’s secret), and i loved them both. nine perfect strangers has her signature humor, an amazing and diverse cast of characters and a storyline that is hilarious, depressing and moving all at the same time.this is the story of a group of people at a health resort, who’ve all chosen to visit for different reasons. the story isn’t just about the nine strangers — it’s also about the three people who run the resort, and how they got to where they are. despite the large cast of characters, each of them got enough time in the story, and no one was neglected or forgotten, which isn’t easy to do at all.the story starts off bright and happy, but then (very gradually) becomes sinister and creepy. there were so many times where i was stressed and worried for the characters. the best part is how hilarious it sounds when you try to explain it — how exactly can a hippie health resort have people worrying for their actual lives? but it can happen, and the contrast between the hilarious story telling and the actual content is one of my favorite things about this book.there are also very important conversations had about mental health, wealth, body shaming and food, and it is especially refreshing to see these problems discussed with humor and a few jokes that in no way detract from the actual with her other books, it’s the characters that elevate the story. they’re all so different from each other, have distinct voices and each of their stories are interesting and important in different ways. i especially love the fact that there are so many different age groups. the interactions they have with each other are also amazing — from awkward to weird to downright crazy. masha was my favorite, just because she was so weird and awesome and i’ve never seen a character quite like her before.this book has has made moriarty one of my favorite authors, and i cannot recommend it enough.
    • 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".
    • I absolutely LOVED this book!!! Nine people head out to a retreat house with the hopes of peace, destress, lost weight , built relationships ...and so much more!!! Each person has their own individual story about their past and the life that has led them to this retreat house! The owner and her 2 employees have incredible stories as well throughout the book! Secret after secret unravels as all nine strangers quickly must lean and depend on one another. The characters were all very interesting, with relatable issues. Nine Perfect Strangers is filled with shame, grief, addiction, identity, resentment, name it!!!My only drawback to this book is the length. It was nearly pages and it really dragged out at the end. In my opinion, it could have been wrapped up a whole lot quicker!I would definitely recommend this book! It really was a great one!!!
    • Love Liane Moriarty books!!
