Truly Madly Guilty
The electrifying new novel from the international bestselling author, Liane Moriarty
Despite their differences, Erika and Clementine have been best friends since they were children. So when Erika needs help, Clementine should be the obvious person to turn to. Or so you'd think.
For Clementine, as a mother of a two desperately trying to practise for the audition of a lifeti...more
Perhaps I do expect the wrong things, but I don't think that's completely my fault. I'm starting to realize that Moriarty's novels are given titles and descriptio ...more

Worried that their son was too optimistic, the parents of a little boy took him to a psychiatrist. In an attempt to dampen the boy’s spirits, the psychiatrist showed him into a room piled high with nothing but horse manure. Instead of displaying disgust, the little boy climbed to the top of the pile and began digging.
“What are you doing?” the psychiatrist asked.
“With all this s**t” the little boy replied, beaming, “there must be a pony in here somewhere!”
That’s ho ...more

The problem with such a build up is whether the event, when it materialises, will be as bad as we are expecting or will it be an anti climax. Fortunately Moriarty picks the kind of event which ...more
Like I said in my review of Big Little Lies, Moriarty is great at crafting complex characters. The 6 adults, and even the 3 children, in this story or so well developed and interesting. They have flaws and personalities that will make you love them and hate them. It's that complexity that takes this book from 'soap opera'-esque to engaging and compellin ...more
I really enjoy Liane Moriarty’s novels. “Big Little Lies” is one of my favorite books. I’ve had this audiobook for quite a while. I’m surprised it took me so long to get to it.
“Six responsible adults. Three cute kids. One small dog. It’s just a normal weekend. What could possibly go wrong?”
This novel had a lot of characters but I thought they were all very well-developed. I especially loved the children, Ruby a ...more
We get to know of the characters' past while the book is building up to this big reveal. To be honest I've already forgotten a lot about the early segments of the book. I thought the book wa ...more
This is one of those long, drawn-out stories that's more about character assessment and the hardships of life than it is a story based on its plot.
This is about 3 couples and how they react and cope with something that happens at a BBQ one afternoon. By the time Liane Moriarty unveils the secret, you'll be just over halfway done with the book.
I feel I should warn you though: Please don't expect the twist to be overly shocking, twisted or scandalous. I did have that expectation, merely ...more
If you have read any reviews for Liane Moriarty's Truly Madly Guilty, you already know that it all seems to be about something that happened at a barbecue. Be forewarned, it's much too easy to get sucked into the mystery of what happened...afterall, the hush hush event is brought up over and over and over again and appears to be something horrendously taboo based on how the characters continue to refer to it. But I beg you, for your own enjoyment, ignore these traps. Instead, meet the charact ...more
I arrived late to the Liane Moriarty party, but after reading both What Alice Forgot and Big Little Lies this year I’ve been declaring to anyone who would listen . . . .
Moriarty took the art
Hmm. I was originally going to give this 3.5 stars, but thinking about it, I can’t find enough positives to warrant the extra half star.
This was my first Liane Moriarty novel and while I found it engaging enough, it didn’t blow me away.
It definitely could have done with being shorter - 180 pages in and there were still no clues as to what happened at this mysterious barbecue, only the fall out from it.
I only really liked a handful of the characters, I particularly couldn’t warm up to C ...more

Sam and Clementine have a wonderful, albeit, busy life: they have two little girls, Sam has just started a new dream job, and Clementine, a cellist, is busy preparing for the audition of a lifetime. If there’s anything they can count on, it’s each other.
Clementine and Erika are each other’s oldest friends. A single look between them can convey an entire conversation.
I once saw one of my favourite authors state how much she enjoys the writing of Liane Moriarty which peaked my interest considerably and was the driving factor in me reading TRULY, MADLY, GUILTY, my first story by this author.
The suspenseful and mysterious story arc centers around a fateful BBQ and three contrasting couples who each grow in stature as the trajectory of the story develops. The BBQ is a day that rocks their lives and the catalyst for the suspenseful element a ...more
I was wrong. Liane Moriarty has got it going on, and I will read anything else she publishes from this point forward. For those female readers out there who also regard themselves as more selective than the average w ...more
Having now finished it I'm so thrilled that I stumbled across this novel on Goodreads. Already from the very first pages I could sense that these characters were lively and the descriptions on point. At several points I was amazed at the authors' sense of details and how these details ...more
I waited, what seemed like forever, to get a copy of this book, while everyone else had already gobbled it up. So, although I make it a practice to avoid reading reviews until I have read the book myself, I couldn’t help but notice this one seemed to be a mixed bag, with some giving it high praise, while others expressed disappointment. But, that happens with most books, really, so I remained optimistic and kept my mind ...more
I'm also a bit disappointed in myself that it took me so long to check out her books. They're delightful works of contemporary fiction! I had made some (totally wrong) assumptions that I wouldn't like the books, that I wouldn't relate to them because I had heard it was a lot of motherhood stuff and I'm not a mom, that modern novels were somehow less val ...more
Liane Moriarty is a popular best-selling author and her latest book, Truly Madly Guilty, garnered a lot of hype and many good reviews. That said, the book was just okay for me.
Set in Sydney, Australia, the story is about an unfortunate incident that occurs during a backyard barbeque. The cookout's hosts are Vid and Tiffany - a rich sociable couple that live in a luxurious home with their 10-year-old daughter Dakota. The guests include the hosts' next-door neighbors Erika and Oliver and their fri ...more
