    Sd̄an er det nu af Meg Rosoff (amysisson)
    amysisson: Although ultimately the books are different, the love felt by the viewpoint characters seems similar, and there is a certain unusual poetic quality to the writing. Both are glorious books.

I really enjoyed this book. The writing style captured me as did the story. The main character is extremely traumatized and the question is why. I did not suspect the ending, but it made sense. I would definitely read more from this author. ( )

Quick page turner about a teenaged girl with a traumatic brain injury and some memory loss.

The surprise of the story wasn't a huge surprise to me but I enjoyed the story anyway.

Once again I'm left feeling that as an adult this book is just so-so. If I was part of the YA intended audience I probably would have enjoyed it more.

We were rich kids and there once was a king with three daughters… hum… it’s a depressing story and not much is happy but it’s worth a quick read. The writing is good but I’m just not sure about the story. ( )

My jaw dropped and I had tears in my eyes at the ending. Wow. Great book. ( )

From Genuine Fraud to We were Liars

I originally picked this up because I read Genuine Fraud by the same author and I genuinely enjoyed it. Pun intended. While I feel like the description of the book tells you everything you need to know about what it is about so I won't be going into much detail I will say it's a quick read.
The writing is good--poetic, but not pretentious. If the editor hasn't done his or her job, I tend to do it in my head while I'm reading, but I didn't need to here. Lockhart's prose is clear, consistent, and vivid. The narrator's voice is believable, fresh, and likable. It makes it a much more enjoyable read when the author is clear on what he or she wishes to express. this is the sort of book that could be spoiled VERY easily, so I won't say too much about it. The story follows the wealthy Sinclair family who owns a private island near Martha's Vineyard where they spend summer every year. The self-named Liars are three cousins and one outsider, all around the same age, who become best friends and allies. There's romance, interesting social commentary, and CRAZY family dynamics. What you will probably ask me next is why this received four but not five stars. Firstly, the ending was somewhat predictable due to lots of heavy foreshadowing by the author. If you figure out the ending it takes a bit away from the story. Overall a very good read and very recommendable. ( )

Of course I won't reveal the twists and turns of the cunning plot, but I can say that when the secret at the heart of the book is finally revealed, it turns out to be nastier and more shocking than anything I had imagined. This is a cunning, clever and absolutely gripping novel, full of surprises, which sent me straight back to its first page as soon as I reached the last.

What really makes a book of the summer is when we surprise ourselves. It’s not just about being fascinated by a book. It’s about being fascinated by the fact that we’re fascinated.

The odds:4-1
We Were Liars
E. Lockhart
Pros: Rich people on an island; sharp, funny-sad writing; a head-snapping fourth­quarter reveal.
Cons: It’s a YA novel, so some adults might pass.
