The Lying Game by Ruth Ware
It Always Comes out in the Wash
I am off to a really good start this year go me in 2022. It’s been 21 days and I haven’t bought a book yet and for me that is progress. The Lying Game was one of the two books given to me by my secret Santa from my online book club. What I love about The Lying Game is that it’s an evocative and page-turning novel that will leave an imprint on the psyche of those who read it. I finished it a few days ago and the story still stays with you. Lying to protect those you love? Or telling the truth and ultimately hurting those who need you the most?
Ruth Ware does a phenomenal job at slowly bringing her readers into the story and then smacking them with the cold hard truth. She has a way of making dark characters very likable and keeping the reader engaged from start to finish. This is a great book. It’s a bit dark, and the setting sets the mood up for this perfectly. It’s a bit sad- finally understanding what was really going on is sure to turn the coldest hearts soft. And it’s an overall powerful read. I have read three books by Ms. Ware and I have to say this one kept me the most engaged. Overall, a very solid four stars. I know that you are going to say that this review doesn’t say much about the story and you would be correct I didn’t. I will however say that this story tests the bonds of friendship beautifully and is worth every minute I spent reading it.
