A private island.
A brilliant, damaged girl; a passionate, political boy.
A group of four friends—the Liars—whose friendship turns destructive.
A revolution. An accident. A secret.
Lies upon lies.
We Were Liars is a modern, sophisticated suspense novel from National Book Award finalist and Printz Award honoree E. Lockhart.
And if anyone asks you how it ends, just LIE.
- I love the writing style. There were short choppy lines, but most of the book wasn't . I liked how the author mixed those styles. It worked really well.
- The random fairy tales were weird. I could see how they applied, but I didn't think they were needed. It just took time away from the story.
- There was a lot of heavy swearing, lots of F bombs.
- The book was slow. The characters do a whole lot of nothing.
- I was told the ending had a big crazy twist that I wouldn't see coming. Well, I figured out what was going on pretty quick. The book had an M. Night Shyamalan feel to it, and once I thought of his movies, the ending was pretty obvious.
- I wasn't a big fan of this one.
