Beschreibung

From the instant New York Times bestselling author of blockbuster thrillers In a Dark, Dark Wood and The Woman in Cabin 10 comes a chilling new novel of friendship, secrets, and the dangerous games teenaged girls play.

On a cool June morning, a woman is walking her dog in the idyllic coastal village of Salten when her dog charges into the water to retrieve what first appears to be a wayward stick, but to her horror, turns out to be something more sinister…

The next morning, three women in and around London—Fatima, Thea, and Isabel—receive the text they had always hoped would never come, from the fourth in their formerly inseparable clique, Kate. It only says, “I need you.”

The four girls were best friends at Salten, a boarding school set near the cliffs of the English Channel. Each different in their own way, the four became inseparable and were notorious for playing the Lying Game, telling lies at every turn to both fellow boarders and faculty, with varying states of serious and flippant nature that were disturbing enough to ensure that everyone steered clear of them. But their little game had consequences, and the girls were all expelled in their final year of school under mysterious circumstances surrounding the death of the school’s eccentric art teacher, Ambrose (who also happens to be Kate’s father).

Atmospheric, twisty, and featuring Ruth Ware’s signature “hair-on-the-back-of-your-neck-tingling” (Marie Claire) prose, The Lying Game proves that she is the Agatha Christie of our time.

  • (5/5)
    Excellent, excellent book!!! Had me intrigued from the first chapter! 1 of Ruth Wares best!
  • (3/5)
    I was very excited to dig into this mystery and was hoping for lots of twists and turns with such a promising title and premise. Meh...it ended up being just okay. It was a fast read and held my interest but the characters were one dimensional and the story wasn't as dark and twisty as I had hoped. Mystery lovers with expectations in check may want to give it a try.

    Ruth Ware always amazes me with her stories! And the narrator did a perfect job!
  • (4/5)
    Interesting characters and some great twists...an enjoyable thriller..slow start but got interesting
  • (3/5)
    The first half was rather depressing. I also don't like plots that hinge on not telling and misunderstanding, though to be fair only a small amount of the book deals with that. The discovery was fun, though the twist was nothing special. Also I hear in the author a Mill on the floss fan, a novel which I did not care for. Realistic in a grey and depressing way, but who's to say that's illegitimate.

    I thought mehh at the beginning, but the closer to the end the better it got. On a side note I really wanted her (the main character) to get with Luke.
  • (5/5)
    Held my interest from beginning to end. The storyline was well written and well read. So far I am loving all her books “the death of MRS. Westaway, the turn of the key, in a dark dark wood
  • (5/5)
    Suspenseful, in the same way as The Girl on the Train. Better than The Woman in Cabin 10. I pretty much had it figured out, I thought. Then the twist at the end! A really good read.
  • (3/5)
    I give it 3.5 stars, I liked the book. I didn’t love it. I thought the story was a little slow at times.
  • (2/5)
    A minor commits a misdemeanor to protect a friend who was also a minor. 17 years later, as an attorney, she risks her child's life and her marriage to keep that trivial secret. I couldn't get past the foolishness of the premise. Otherwise, the characters are well rendered and interesting.
  • (4/5)
    I feel like the book was definitely drawn out. It could have been shorter. Besides that the t
    Plot twists are really good.
  • (2/5)
    What a slog over a very small bit of plot.
  • (4/5)
    Twists and turns we're too long coming, though I did thoroughly enjoy Ruth Ware's writing style. Her analogies were spectacular, but the subplots were left somewhat unfinished.
  • (4/5)
    slow start but gripping toward the end. The ending is somewhat happy but not total satisfying (not all bad guys get punished!) (mild spoiler below)
    All major characters are unsympathetic (jerk, addict, anorexic, neurotic or pychopathic). even the victim was pretty selfish by ruining his children for life. there is only one person who seems level-headed & has few cells in the left brain & the narrator did a voice acting for her, kudo.
  • (5/5)
    I've read several of her books and this one by far was the best.
  • (3/5)
    It wasn’t particularly thrilling. The parts with the husband and the daughter went on too long. It took me out of the story.
  • (5/5)
    Great and amazing story. I was intrigue by the twisting storyline and was moved to tears by the characters. I was drawn in by the consequence of the events.
  • (4/5)
    Slow start but picks up- good overall and ended up in a place where I appreciated the work

    It was alright. There were some really good moments of suspense. But halfway through, the ending was too obvious.

    Man this book was a whole lot of nothing. I waited around for the “twist” at the end and it turns out I predicted it long before and was disappointed that it was just that. It’s drawn out to death and really a huge waste of time.

    I liked it but it was a little predictable. I expected a little more. I wanted a bigger twist.

    I really enjoyed this book started a little slow but ramped up fairly quickly. Kept me guessing.

    Omg, this book was so booooooooring. I can't believe it is considered a great suspense novel. I think the plot is simply ridiculous, dumb teenagers and dumb adults making dumb decisions. I gave up at chapter 49 and looked up a book summary... Can't believe I wasted a few hours of my life on such a slow, pointless and bland plot.

    This was twisted and suspenseful. This author uses so much inner dialogue that you feel like you are reading in real time.

    It was good, not a favorite. I’m torn between three and four stars. The story was well-told, I really thought the narrator did a really nice job, but it just wasn’t my favorite book. I suppose it wasn’t gripping enough & it didn’t unfold as dramatically as it was led up to be.

    I liked two of the other books by this author. This one was a waste of time. Overly long with no payoff.

    They draw out the book with senseless information in the beginning just to give all the important stuff in the end. It had a slow start and boring middle.

    It was a weak story that had a good plot. Predictable and corny. The narration was good.
