This review is being written five minutes after finishing We Were Liars, so please excuse my thoughts which will probably be all over the place and incoherent. This book is absolutely crazy.
I should probably first of all mention that this book was a 3.5 star read for the majority of the book, but I can’t rate it anything but 5 stars after finishing because OMG. It blew me away!
Here are some reasons you should read We Were Liars:
- Family politics mean a really interesting read, and there is a lot of it in the Sinclair family.
- It’s VERY different to anything you’d usually read.
- The hype? It’s for good reason. This book is awesome!
- TWISTS, MAN. THOSE TWISTS MESSED WITH MY HEAD.
I don’t want to give anything away, because there’s a lot I could reveal. I feel as if any tiny thing I reveal could be classed as a spoiler of epic proportions so I should probably just say – READ WE WERE LIARS! It isn’t everyone’s type of book and I know not everyone has enjoyed it, but give it a chance and I think you’ll love it.
I think one of the most appealing things about We Were Liars is I don’t think there’s another book even remotely similar to it out there at the moment. You can pick it up knowing you won’t have read anything quite like it before.
If you like your mental state, read We Were Liars. Nobody is supposed to be sane!
