Why did I love this book?
Like most talented writers, Liane Moriarty makes storytelling look easy. It’s as though she’s lounging back, sipping on a crisp white wine and, like a seasoned raconteur, tells a story while gesticulating expressively and rolling out witty commentary. I’m awestruck by her enviable grasp of language, and her evocative portrayal of human conflict within an exceedingly complex world. That she’s able to do so in a pithy, punchy, and at times humorous fashion is impressive. Her female characters are so multi-dimensional and real, I remove my writer’s hat to her.
