Nine Perfect Strangers – Liane Moriarty


Nine perfect strangers, each hiding an imperfect life.

A luxury retreat cut off from the outside world.

Ten days that promise to change your life.

But some promises – like some lives – are perfect lies . . .


This book had me utterly gripped from the beginning. I loved the concept and the gradual introduction of each of the characters. It did however end up work 11 main characters, which at times was difficult to keep up with….

I loved this until about page 280 and then it went downhill for me. I was disappointed with how this one turned out and I wasn’t a fan of the last couple of chapters at all, they felt a little harsh as a book reviewer.

I did enjoy how all the characters were wrapped up, and we had a look into their futures, albeit I think probably too far!

Masha ended up not being a character I was invested in at all by the end, the plot all just got too bonkers and parts went on for far too long!

I think so much more could have been done with this set up, which is a bit of a shame. Overall, I’m giving it a 3/5 stars.
