Nine Perfect Strangers by Liane Moriarty
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
I feel like this had so much potential, and the first half was quite good. I always enjoy the characters and settings that Moriarty creates, I feel like I know them and that is really skilful writing.
I thought the idea of Tranquillum House was just the right amount of health retreat mythologies, and touched on exactly the right people who would attend and why.
However, there were almost too many characters to keep up with. The story around Masha was so unresolved and in no way fitting with any of her motives or actions, I can’t understand why that was her backstory.
The story itself didn’t really come off due to the many inconsistencies, which is unusual for Liane Moriarty – she usually wraps it all up for us in a cohesive way. Definitely not her best effort.
Wouldn’t really recommend it, I feel like it was rushed and not well planned out.
