intriguing murky storyline, a claustrophobic setting and compelling unreliable characters I absolutely love the voices of unreliable characters The intensity of the claustrophobic feeling definitely fills the reader with a sense of unease as the story progresses There is definitely some highly emotional heartbreaking scenes that definitely made this reader sit back to empathize, reflect and ponder along with these characters as well as made me think of what I would do in a similar situation.I wouldn t necessarily say this was a spine tingling thriller as the blurb suggests but there was definitely this sense of impending doom that permeates the narrative to unsettle and rattle the reader Norma s Stats Cover Intriguing, unsettling, claustrophobic, suspenseful, foreboding, eye catching

left me feeling a little unsettled with the direction it took although I was totally satisfied with how the novel wrapped up though I m not sure if another ending would have worked out as well though Maybe that uneasy and anxious feeling was the intended reaction HmmmmOverall An excellent and riveting read that had me totally absorbed within this tale right from the very start, thoroughly enjoying

for me, Simon Lelic is officially a favorite author for me I m looking forward to from him ReflectionWhat a trip this book is For a book with almost no action when I say nearly the whole book takes place in a single room, I mean it , this book is a wild ride with a surprisingly fast pace The beginning of the book was positively chilling It feels like there is something off with Adam from the first moment he enters the office, but it s hard to say exactly what is off Susanna has the quiet confidence of a long time therapist, so initially she takes his odd behavior in stride But after awhile it becomes clear that there is something not right And when he pulls out the photograph of Emily, even though I knew it was coming from the synopsis, I was horrified Can you imagine what that would feel like as a mother I have to say, there are some dark themes as secrets are revealed The book delves into the past through retelling for the most part Susanna telling Adam about the events that preceded her fleeing her life I don t want to spoil any of the secrets, but I ll say there are some disturbing things that happened in Susanna s old life Things I could barely imagine how she must have felt Her running away well let s just say I completely understood that reaction.There are some really fascinating characters I wish I could say about them, but I m not sure how to bring them up without spoiling How about I just say, there are some first person letters and journals that will keep you on the edge of your seat when they enter the story I won t say whose they are or what they say, but I am still creeped out even imagining them As a credit to Simon Lelic, he really went there with his story telling Hearing the voices of other characters was so pivotal to the story Susanna and Adam were compelling, but the additional narratives are in my opinions what brought this novel from good to great I finished a few days back and I m still thinking about them I read this twisted story with the book besties and it was an interesting discussion, that s for sure Lots to unpack here and there are a few ways to interpret the truth of the events that unfold, which led to some great

the attention and care of their parents I also like the reminder of how vulnerable those teens can be to friends influences I don t think Adam s approach to punishing irresponsible parents is great, threatening with the knife is not really spine tingling in my opinion.This book is told in the third person point of view following Susanna Fenton, a counselor She s seeing her first new client of the day, Adam Geraghty She shares the building with Ruth, a dentist and they share a receptionist Alina Susanna thought that Adam looks familiar but she couldn t place how she knows him She has an ex husband Neil, son Jake and daughter Emily, but currently living with only Emily Adam is reluctant to confide his problem and what he wants to do but when he produces a picture and gives it to Susanna, her heart stops when she sees the picture Adam also knows that Susanna wants to keep Jake a secret The second point of view is Emily, told in a diary format The third point of view is Ruth Ruth knows of Susanna s past The fourth point of view is Adam The fifth point of view is Jake, told in letter format This book is organized by a timeline.The Liar s Room is well written It s a bit on the slow side for me When the truth is revealed, I didn t feel it shocking I do like how the secrets slowly reveals itself The parenting bit is ongoing as well as bad boys doing bad things I m not sure how I feel about the story in the end Lies is what drew me in and lies definitely ruin not only Emily but also Adam I don t get why Susanna and Neil have important things to do than spend time with their first born I would understand if they have 5 kids and one got away The setting is okay In the end, I like how counseling can help Adam understand another side of things because of how narrow his view is I do recommend everyone to read this book, mostly for the parenting reminders.Pro mystery, suspense, secrets past, counseling, parenting,Con not spine tingling as advertisedI rate it 4 stars

for this visit and it doesn t bode well for Susanna s daughter I m not going to give any specifics of the plot away than that why Adam is there, his connection to Susanna, what happened in her past,, to her family, all of this comes out over the course of the story, it is extraordinarily addictive, and emotive as things become clearer and is utterly gripping Some brilliantly thought provoking themes explored here, from rather different angles than the standard and I was enthralled from first page to last.I loved that this ultimately was not a novel in which you could take sides in the way you might usually, all the players in this drama have their own realities, it is an authentically engaging character study, a story of perspective and personality.Really really clever Often unexpected It will make you think about current issues in a slightly different way, plus it has one of those endings that will linger and play on your mind I have actually changed my own mind about how I felt about everyone in it several times since I finished it The Liars Room is that sort of book.Highly Recommended flag 40 likesLike see review View 2 comments Jan 14, 2019 Kendall rated it really liked it

Susanna s new patient, Adam, starts to ask her questions during his therapy session Questions that indicate he knows the secrets in her past and what she has been running from for years As the questions continue, Susanna s world starts to unravel.This story unfolds during the course of a day When Adam arrives to Susanna s office, she begins the session as she normally would with a new patient, but things soon change It is clear Adam has another reason for being in Susanna s office, and his twisted game involves Susanna and her teen daughter Emily Susanna is a little overprotective of Emily, but they have a close relationship However, Susanna has been keeping secrets about her past from her daughter Those secrets have now put Emily in danger.Susanna s past is slowly revealed in flashbacks during her time with Adam He questions, provokes, and threatens her into revealing the truth that led her to run from her old life I enjoyed that the bulk of the story takes place in one setting and in one day That provided another layer of suspense and intensity, since everything is happening over the course of hours rather than days or weeks There are some other things going on too, but the focus is on Susanna and Adam.I enjoyed this book, but the ending fell flat for me It didn t have the impact that I was hoping for in such an intense story Maybe I m being overly picky though Overall, it s a gripping read Great for readers who enjoy dark psychological thrillers with slow reveals I received a free digital copy of this book via First to Read in exchange for an honest review

tables were turned in this book with Susanna, the therapist, being forced to confront her past I liked the slow reveal of why she had a new identity as well learning what happened to her daughter I think the author had noble intentions in telling the story but one aspect fell flat in my opinion in regards to some of the reactions to Susanna I m trying not to spoil anything, but there was one brief scene in which I really questioned would someone really do that Overall, this definitely held my interest throughout even though I was kinda iffy on some parts towards the end If you enjoyed the

going to happen next My only real complaint with this one was that it did start to drag a bit, but I was still turning pages quickly and it did hold my attention the entire time This is my first time reading a Simon Lelic novel, but it will definitely not be my last I love when a book can pull you in like this one did, and even though there weren t any super shocking surprises, I still really liked it One thing that I feel is important to note, is that there is animal abuse in this book I always struggle when author s use this in their books, but for this novel it helped to show the state of mind of the people committing the abuse so it wasn t completely all for nothing which is what I hate the absolute most Also, rape is another trigger so this novel is not going to be for the faint of heart.Final Thought If you are looking for a fast paced novel that you can knock out in just a few hours, I highly recommend checking out The Liar s Room I think the setting is very unique, and I like the style in which this book is written with flashbacks to Susanna s past and the reason she left her home and changed her identity I don t know if I would call this book spine tingling per say, but it is a very solid read that I recommend flag 29 likesLike see review View all 3 comments Dec 01, 2018 Gabby rated it really liked it Shelves 4 star books, adult, arc or won or received,

them excellently and with tact Undoubtedly one of the best psychological thrillers i ve encountered in recent months and I read a lot in this genre.The premise features Susanna Fenton, a therapist, who takes on a new client named Adam It soon becomes clear that Adam is no stranger to Susanna, he happens to know her darkest secrets and the life she had run away from But how exactly does he know all of this From that point on it s a race against time in order to discover who the boy is and what he wants from her before someone gets hurt Can Susanna keep her daughter safe from Adam Geraghty or

identity,reinventing herself and starting a new life Why did Susanna run away from her previous life and what was she protecting Emily from.Throughout the story Susanna s thoughts slip back into the past and she gradually reveals the tragic events and misconceptions that tore her life apart and made her run away with baby Emily.My feelings about Susanna changed many times as both stories unfolded but I can honestly say I liked the present day Susanna than the version of her in the past I most definitely didn t like Adam,he was a spine chillingly,creepy character who could flip from boyish innocence to sneering psychopath faster than the blink of an eye.As the tension builds and the drama unfolds in the tiny room there is no way of knowing how it s all going to play out,who is going to win the battle of wits and what has happened to Emily.This is a riveting,thought provoking psychological thriller that would result in some very interesting discussions if it was read by a book group due to some of the issues that are raised throughout the story.I enjoyed The Liar s Room just as much as I did The House which was one of my favourite books of last year.The Liar s Room is a very,very

that I LOVED it As you can imagine with a novel billed as a psychological thriller, it s a bit messed up and we re not aware of the motives of our characters until we re a fair way through the narrative but add in a couple of unreliable narrators and for me personally, the story just exploded into the stratosphere As with all reviews of thrillers, I really can t tell you too much about the plot for fear of spoilers Believe me, you re not going to want me to ruin this story for you What can I tell you The majority of the novel is set in a counsellor s office, the counsellor is Susanna Fenton and she has her first appointment with new client Adam Geraghty She immediately notices that Adam appears on edge but she never could have dreamed or anticipated what he starts to tell her i.e the reasons behind his visit and indeed, what ends up transpiring in their session over the next couple of hours You see, Susanna has secrets of her own, secrets that Adam is well aware of and with a tag line like ONE ROOM, TWO LIARS, NO WAY OUT, you wonder if either party is going to leave the room unscathed, if at all.With Simon Lelic s writing, I ve grown to expect the unexpected and I love the unpredictability of the narrative that I can never fully figure out, including exactly what direction he s going to choose to take both his characters and plot Both characters are unreliable as I ve mentioned, and we re knowledgeable about the fact that they are both liars but that s the only small juicy piece of information we re given on entering the counselling room with both Adam and Susanna Of course this makes them infinitely interesting as individuals why are they lying for example What information does Adam have that seems to give him such a hold over Susanna and, even intriguingly, why exactly does he care so much All these questions are answered eventually but it s the journey to get to these answers that makes it one hundred percent worth the wait I was completely captivated by Lelic s writing style, the intricacy of his plot and the mystery that underpins why Susanna and Adam are in this room, talking to each other in the first place He s not afraid to go to some dark places, has the imagination to construct a brilliantly realised narrative which kept me hooked, wanting to read just one chapter throughout the entirety of the novel.For my full review and many ,
