The Lying Game by Ruth Ware
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
"I have spent so long running from the memories, pushing them away, drowning them in drink and routine and everyday life."
Ruth Ware's The Lying Game is a psychological journey through secrets, lies, and relationships.
The book follows Isa and her former classmates through a journey of horrible memories, lies, and secrets. As they uncover truths they'd tried to overlook, they will learn that sometimes the lying game comes back to haunt you.
I loved that this book truly kept me on the edge of my seat. Just when I felt confident I had figured it out, I changed my mind. The suspense is well-built and keeps you on edge. I also liked Isa's character's imperfections and struggles. She felt very realistic and was easy to like. I found myself rooting for her.
The ending was very well done. The last page, especially, really brought everything full circle.
Overall, this book had a feel of In a dark, dark wood. The concepts were somewhat similar, and Ruth Ware's detailed style didn't disappoint. Overall, this was an engaging story about how dangerous lies can be and how they can haunt us well beyond what we ever thought possible.
I highly recommend this book and will definitely be reading the next Ruth Ware book released.
