Sometimes I Lie

Sometimes I Lie

Alice Feeney

Synopsis: Amber wakes up in a hospital. She can’t move. She can’t speak. She can’t open her eyes. She can hear everyone around her, but they have no idea. Amber doesn’t remember what happened, but she has a suspicion her husband had something to do with it. Alternating between her paralyzed present, the week before her accident, and a series of childhood diaries from twenty years ago, this brilliant psychological thriller asks: Is something really a lie if you believe it’s the truth?

My Rating: 2.5 Stars – rounded up to 3.

Cover 3; characters 2; plot 2; pace 3; writing 3; enjoyment 2.

My Review: I have feelings. I’m honestly not sure how to rate this one so we’re going to talk about my feelings and then I’ll figure out the rating.

I hate these characters. All of them. Who were they? I don’t know. They were a bunch of lying psychopath’s and I have very little clue about what they were doing/who they were.

The book was too easy to figure out who was lying and how. Nothing really surprised me. I had a pretty good idea of what was going on fairly early and there was only one little thing that I didn’t catch but I figured it out before I was told.

I really hated the ending. This is just one of those books where too many things were left unsaid/undone/unresolved for my liking.

Caution Warnings: OCD, murder, death by fire, on page rape, sexual assault, stalking, alcoholism, abuse, child endangerment, hospital setting.
