    • Not Liane’s best work. I found the concept mildly interesting but too many characters to follow and too much inner dialogue for me. I was ready to give up about half way through, so much emphasis on weight. I got a few laughs but as a whole found the book clunky to read, rather than a page turner like many of this author’s other books.
    • Frances Welty, popular romance writer who'd just felt her first rejection, had thought her career and future were assured at fifty-five years of age. The impulsive booking at Tranquillum House, a health and wellness resort (which was expensive), had her questioning her own decisions on the long and tiring drive from Sydney. Her arrival showed her a beautiful old home built in the 1800s, renovated to within an inch of its life, with a staircase reminiscent of the Titanic (in the film with Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet; which made Frances smile) – perhaps she might enjoy it after all.Meeting the other eight guests – Carmel, Tony, Lars, Napolean and his wife Heather and daughter Zoe, Jessica and her husband Ben – felt strange. But even stranger was the fact the course started with five days of silence. Not a word to be spoken; no eye contact – five days! Frances knew that would be difficult. Within that period, there were meditation classes, walking, massage therapy, smoothies and meals, plus free time to swim in the luxurious pool. All to be done in silence.But each and every guest had a secret – and who were the people in charge of the resort? Were the guests comfortable with all that was happening to them? Some were – some most definitely weren’t…Nine Perfect Strangers is the latest by Aussie author Liane Moriarty and wow! How different, how intriguing, how bizarre – how fabulous! I thoroughly enjoyed it, and even with it being almost 500 pages, I flew through it. I can see this one being made into a movie – it would be fantastic on the big screen. I have no hesitation in recommending Nine Perfect Strangers highly.
    • I loved ‘What Alice Forgot’ when I read it for the first time years ago and subsequently have pre-bought every book Liane Moriarty has created - she really is the queen of domestic suspense, so I had high hopes going into ‘Nine Strangers’ and I'm happy to report I was once again delighted and madly swiping the pages into the wee hours of the morning.I love that literally Nine Strangers come together at a wellness resort... however as it’s a Liane Moriarty creation, there's a heap of secrets waiting to be revealed and unlike her other reads this was funny!The premise is so unique, literally nine strangers head off to a health resort, hoping to return home different people. Set in Australia, Tranquillem House is a health and wellness resort that many clients claim transformed their lives. The latest batch of arrivals get considerably more than the diet, light exercise, therapy and spa treatments they had signed up for...There is plenty of sly humour and wit in Moriarty's story and I just simply can’t say much more without spoilers... however I have to say made me think twice about trying a health retreat! I am a verified purchaser in AUSTRALIA
    • I loved the book! Second book I've read of hers and now in to The Husbands Secret! Loving her books!
    • Good read. As usual with Lianne Moriarty, her characters are well developed and story line absorbing.
