It is hard not to like a book by Liane Moriarty, she has a charming way about her writing. You know you are in good hands. This book just took a bit long to get going for me to give it the extra star, I knew I was going to like it immediately but the meandering got a wee bit on top of me, once we got into the real deal of what happened ‘on the day of the barbecue’ I was hooked.
This is the story of a bunch of people who attended a back yard bbq at the home of the neighbours of one set of the friends. That afternoon something happened which changed forever the way that these people felt about each other and how they dealt with their lives. Along with the big event you get a very extensive backstory, which I really liked.
So read this book if you’ve enjoyed her other books, know that you’ll have an enjoyable experience. Her big fans though, they are still going to love this and call it a 5 star read, for me it was a firm 3, which isn’t a bad thing.
