Book Review: WE WERE LIARS

We Were LiarsWe Were Liars by E. Lockhart

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Excellent book!

I was concerned when I read so many reviews stating there was a "twist" at the end that my reading would be tainted anticipating that (unknown) twist, but no. The twist still blindsided me even though I was looking for it.

Here an example of why I enjoyed Lockhart's writing: "He wasn't just Gat. He was contemplation and enthusiasm. Ambition and strong coffee. All that was there, in the lids of his brown eyes, his smooth skin, his lower lip pushed out. There was coiled energy inside." (page 19)

And the twist at the end, I must admit, made me a fan of Lockhart's plotting.

The book did use the F-word a lot, but there was no sex or violence in the story.
