Most Overrated Book

we were liarsWe Were Liars by E. Lockhart

I’m sorry that I complain about this book so much. I wonder if reading this book instead of listening to the audiobook would have helped me, but I really don’t think so. I genuinely don’t understand what people saw in this book. I liked learning about a rich family and their problems (kind of), but not enough to make up for the rest of this book. No character development, slow-moving plot, and annoying writing style = no go for me. Sorry, folks. I would be interested to hear what you liked about it, if you’re in the majority that did.

  1. I liked the plot and the social commentary that underlies a lot of the issues of this book, and the twist at the end caught me by surprise (pushing up the number of stars I gave it in my review). However, the writing style was confusing and choppy at times and I think Cady was a super unreliable narrator, and I didn’t really feel tied enough to any of the characters to really care about them. It was a nice change because it’s definitely different from the YA I normally read, but I think there was room for improvement as well.
