    • 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, love...you 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!!!
    • 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.
    • I enjoyed this book and would recommend it to anyone who has enjoyed Liane Moriarty's other books. lots of good and interesting characters who's back story is revealed over time. Great story line, but this one just felt a bit rushed at the end. I guess once you get your characters in the situation these ones find themselves in - its tricky to find a way out! (literally!!)
