Hi! I hope you all had wonderful days and are doing very well 🙂 If you didn’t really have a productive day or you’re just bored, seriously consider checking out, We Were Liars. The ending alone is what makes this book so worth it. Like you all probably know by now, I’m a fairly active reader and this novel took me about a full 3 hours or so to read. I’ve heard of the author, E. Lockhart and have seen some of her titles online and at bookstores of course but this is the first story I read by her. I enjoyed the plotline of the book, though I didn’t really feel connected to the characters, let alone the main character until the middle to end of the book and after that it was almost like I stepped into each of their 4 pairs of shoes and really felt what eased, and ultimately caused their pain.
Cady takes the part of official narrator of this quick, yet somber, story, and allows the reader completely into her world in which she herself is failing to save herself from drowning in. On one of the first couple of pages in the book there is the Sinclair family tree which is somewhat helpful as you read on throughout the book, though at first glance I thought, ‘there’s no way I’m going to be able to remember all these characters and all these family members’ 🙂 Likewise with my previous statement though, once you keep reading, you’ll understand the characteristics and traits of who is who. Was I pleased with the ending? Yes I was, as tragic as it was, I thought it was the ultimate explosion of the entire story. Cady, to me, seemed to be an extremely relatable character and you can tell that the author wasn’t trying too too hard to make her seem so real, you know? Anyway, as for my final recommendation…. 100% recommend this book. For anyone. Half of the characters are teenagers so expect a little amount of cursing( if there really is much or any at all. thinking back now, I don’t remember much explicit language.) There is only a small mention of sex but it’s nowhere nasty and unreadable.
If you do read it, let me know what your thoughts are!
