A beautiful and distinguished family.
A private island.
A brilliant, damaged girl; a passionate, political boy.
A group of four friends—the Liars—whose friendship turns destructive.
A revolution. An accident. A secret.
Lies upon lies.
We Were Liars is a modern, sophisticated suspense novel from National Book Award finalist and Printz Award honoree E. Lockhart.
And if anyone asks you how it ends, just LIE
I decided to read it without having to decipher everything, I was very anxious and uneasy, so I just read, I didn’t preoccupied, I wanted to know nothing until the end.
The writing style I liked; the composition and the wording, but the morbid metaphors, I did not.
I didn’t see the ending coming, like I said before, I wasn’t worried about solving the mystery, but the ending didn’t shocked me. I imagined a hundred different scenarios, but not that one, that one was rather trite.
I liked the fact that, thinking back, everything was there for you to put the pieces together. If you don’t read it in a trance, like me, the mystery is a very easy guess.
I think a second reading will be very enjoyable, though.
