Nine Perfect Strangers Reviews
‘She’s back’ exclaims the front cover of my proof copy of Nine Perfect Strangers, the latest release from household name and bestselling author Liane Moriarty. If you don’t know who Liane Moriarty is I might mistake you for living under a rock! She is one of Australia’s greatest exports, gracing the illusive New York Times bestseller list many times over. She also has close ties to Hollywood superstars Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon, thanks to the HBO s ...more
I absolutely devoured Big Little Lies! I love how Liane Moriarty starts a story all sweet with likeable characters, then slowly a foreboding veil comes across the story and people’s dark side begins to emerge changing a good story into a compelling story.
Nine people book into a health resort, Tranquillum House, ready to be transformed into a better, thinner, healthier version of their former self.
A washed up romance novelist, a family broken by tragedy, a ...more
A slow starter halfway through and it wasn’t grabbing me then BAM, things started to happen...but seriously how does she do it!? Get into the heads of her characters, like she has a window into the thought patterns of people. It’s uncanny and it’s such a skilled craft! If nothing else I’m obsessed with the way that she uncovers her characters individual foibles and indiosyncracies in the most amusing and hilarious ways poking fun at so many common cliches and stereotypes it’s hard not to snigger ...more
My first Liane Moriarty novel - I was intrigued by this one after the hype surrounding Big Little Lies. This may not be indicative of the quality of her other novels, but I found this to be cliched, predictable and ridiculous.
The story focuses on the nine strangers of the title who sign up for a kind of health cleanse at a spa, situated in a remote part of Australia. We quickly learn that something is amiss, and that these people are part of an experience more bizarre and in some ways sinister ...more
Wildly entertaining, wickedly perceptive & an irresistible page-turner!
“It’s just a story!” ......and oh boy what a story it was!
NINE PERFECT STRANGERS by LIANE MORIARTY was such a fantastic, lighthearted, fun, sad, and touching story that was so thought-provoking and yet so humourous to read. I absolutely loved this book and couldn’t get enough of these quirky characters. I adored this book right from the very start and had me laughing out loud numerous times and then at other times gasping ...more
No snack stashes allowed! (But I’m still rounding up)
If I went to a health spa and they confiscated my phone and secretly raided my suitcase for snack stashes, I’d think WTF? What did I sign up for? Those snacks were there for a reason. And the phone, oh dear. As Moriarty writes, ““How was she going to cope for ten days without instant answers to idle questions?” Sigh, what would any of us do without Google?
People arriving at the health spa in Nine Perfect Strangers did not want a WTF moment, ...more
I accidentally deleted my review and I don't keep copies of my reviews 😩
So here's an abbreviated version:
I loved it 💖
I have to give this one 5* for pure enjoyment levels. I can't remember the last time I laughed so much at the same time as being made to consider life so much whilst reading a book.
A weirdly wonderful group of utter stranger's all rock up to a 10 day wellness retreat, all looking for different answers, all hoping to come out the other side all brand new. Well be careful what you wish for is all I'll say...
This group dynamic is pure dynamite as we slowly get to know this motley crew and their inn ...more
