My biggest complaint with this book was that it takes so long before anything actually happens. Reading the back of the book I assumed the letter would be read in the beginning and the book would be the result of the letter. To my dismay the letter is not revealed until halfway through the book. The entire time I was reading the first half I was anxiously waiting to know what the letter was about and when it would come about. After reading the entire book I can see why she wrote it this way, but I wish it had been a bit more exciting to keep me interested.
I have to say that the ending of the book is why I gave it so many stars and I'm kind of disappointed that it ended so soon Just as I felt the story was really starting to take off it was suddenly over.

Liane Moriarty's Nine Perfect Strangers was an intelligent, engrossing, well-researched, and alluringly written novel about nine Australians at an expensive rural health spa that promises life-changing results, and which delivers them, although not in a manner expected by its guests, the local police department, and Moriarty's devoted readers.

Tranquilium House is run by Masha, a charismatic, tough, ex-corporate executive who emigrated from Russia, and who has issues, huge ones, under her perfect veneer. Her guests include a writer or romantic novels, an AFC alum, a lawyer, a family grieving a suicide, and a wealthy young couple on the verge of divorce. Astonished by an enforced silence, rigorous fasting, and separation anxiety as their electronic devices are confiscated for the duration of the retreat, the guests think they've survived the worst a health spa has to offer, but they're utterly off the mark there.

Peopled by realistic and interesting characters, plotted cleverly, with surprises around a realistic number of corners, Nine Perfect Strangers was an extremely entertaining and insightful book, and was a great start to a new year and new decade of reading.

I read this based on a friend's recommendation. While the writing isn't as bad as, say, Dan Brown or EL James, it's not spectacular either.

The plotting and pacing are pretty good, I found myself drawn into the story and interested in the characters. But by the end, I'd stopped caring about them. I felt like an outsider. I think that's because I'm not a mother, and this book deals with a lot of themes relating to motherhood.

So, if you're a white, middle class mother, you'll probably enjoy this book more than I did.… (mais)
