Nine Perfect Strangers by Liane Moriarty, pictured above with the resplendent bookmark l used, is the first book that l have read by this author. I did see the t.v. production of Big Little Lies and thought it brilliant.
Reading this book has made me want to now read all her books. What a storyteller. Nine strangers attend the Tranquillum House health resort which promises healing and transformation. Led by the charismatic leader Masha, these nine motley characters have no idea what’s in store for them.
I was hooked from the very first page. The pace of story, character development and quality of writing are all top class. It’s a book that makes you want to keep turning the pages. There’s humour, pathos and a little bit of mystery all rolled into one in a very well told story.
It may be the first Liane Moriarty book l have read but it won’t be the last.
