Sometimes I Lie

Sometimes I Lie by Alice Feeney

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Another one bites the dust for the #unreadshelfproject2019. Plus I’ve gotta have my thriller fix and this was twisted, crazy, and had one of the most unreliable narrators I’ve read in a psychological thriller. It was also disturbing and shocking and a super-quick read. When I finished it, I had one of those “what the hell did I just read?!” moments. I also know I’m the last person to read this book, but at least I was spoiler-free.

Amber Reynolds is in a coma. She can hear everything around her, but she can’t move or speak. We can only deduce what is going on through what Amber is hearing around her. She doesn’t know what happened to her. But whatever she hears at first makes her think her husband, Paul, is someone she can’t trust. And then there’s her sister, Claire. Amber thinks Claire might be having an affair with Paul. And maybe Paul is the reason she is lying in the hospital.

Things start to get wacky. You don’t know what’s true and what’s not. I kept trying to figure out what was going on and then, there are pages or diary entries to read, written in the past. By a child. Who wrote these diary entries? One thing I loved about this book is that I had absolutely no clue where this one was going. I’m so glad I picked this one off my backlist!
