Book Review: Sometimes I Lie

Sometimes I LieSometimes I Lie by Alice Feeney

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This was a terrific psychological thriller except that 1) too many things happened; 2) I have no idea what happened; and 3) the whole Edward thing.

NO SPOILERS HERE. This is the story of Amber and Claire, who are engaged in a seriously dysfunctional love/hate relationship. And sorta Paul, and then also this total creep, Edward, that randomly appears and adds little to the story.

Should you read this book? I couldn't put it down. I thought about it when I wasn't reading it. And then I got to the end and said, "Huh?" So the question is: is the thrill of a totally engrossing, completely implausible novel worth that moment at the end when you want to throw a book across the room and yell, "What. the. heck?" with a snarl of contempt?

You decide. You've been there before, no doubt.
