Anmerkung des Herausgebers

Reese’s book club…

Reese Witherspoon picked “The Guest List” as one of her June/July 2020 book club picks, along with “I’m Still Here” by Austin Channing Brown. “A very stormy seaside destination wedding is the back drop for this thrilling June book pick. … Get ready for so many twists and turns as you try to figure out the who, what and when of this mystery. It reminds me of some of my favorite mysteries from Agatha Christie,” Witherspoon wrote in her Instagram announcement post.

Beschreibung

A Reese's Book Club Pick

“I loved this book. It gave me the same waves of happiness I get from curling up with a classic Christie...The alternating points of view keep you guessing, and guessing wrong.” (Alex Michaelides, number one New York Times best-selling author of The Silent Patient)

"Evok[es] the great Agatha Christie classics.... Pay close attention to seemingly throwaway details about the characters’ pasts. They are all clues.” (New York Times Book Review)

A wedding celebration turns dark and deadly in this deliciously wicked and atmospheric thriller reminiscent of Agatha Christie from the New York Times best-selling author of The Hunting Party.

The bride – The plus one – The best man – The wedding planner – The bridesmaid – The body

On an island off the coast of Ireland, guests gather to celebrate two people joining their lives together as one. The groom: handsome and charming, a rising television star. The bride: smart and ambitious, a magazine publisher. It’s a wedding for a magazine, or for a celebrity: the designer dress, the remote location, the luxe party favors, the boutique whiskey. The cell phone service may be spotty and the waves may be rough, but every detail has been expertly planned and will be expertly executed.

But perfection is for plans, and people are all too human. As the champagne is popped and the festivities begin, resentments and petty jealousies begin to mingle with the reminiscences and well wishes. The groomsmen begin the drinking game from their school days. The bridesmaid not-so-accidentally ruins her dress. The bride’s oldest (male) friend gives an uncomfortably caring toast.

And then someone turns up dead. Who didn’t wish the happy couple well? And perhaps more important, why?

    It started off slow, but picked up quickly.
    The story start with a wedding scene in an isolated island in Ireland. The story was narrated by six different people, which means we can experience six different points of view. There's a few plot twists that has you guessing who the killer is. Worth reading!

    Best murder mystery I’ve ever read. The character development. The twists and turns. I never saw it coming the whole time. Loved it!

    Atmospheric. The individual character POV chapters and two timelines keep the story moving. Foley’s plot is—as always—deliciously over the top. Fun read.

    This was just a random audiobook I picked and oh man it was bloody fantastic.To be honest wouldn't mind an adaption of this book ?. My first thriller this year and it was great, so many twists I didn't even expect and loved the multiple POV . Definitely will read more books from this author and hope to be good as this one. ?

    This book had so many plot twists I didn’t see coming. It felt like it went by so quickly, I love when books don’t have too much unnecessary info or storylines. It was just a solid read from start to finish. If you love drama and thrillers you’ll love this whodunnit

    I love to hear, i want to hear it all day long
  • (5/5)
    Grit past the unbearably slow start to this story and you’ll be rewarded with suspenseful twists and turns and brow-raising revelations. That a death could be both tragic and justified is one of the winning aspects to this tale for me.
  • (5/5)
    SO well done!!! There were moments that had me jumping up and down and running around the room. Amazingly well woven who-done-it story. Wish they were all more like this. Even if you don't like the genre, this will be a good read. ?

    I couldn't stop listening! The story was full of twists and turns, and I felt myself getting attached to the characters--no matter how distasteful some were.
  • (4/5)
    3.5 stars. The beginning was somewhat slow paced. I was kind of getting bored and there was so much dialogue that the ending felt rushed. Nonetheless, I liked it.
  • (4/5)
    I like the story and how it was told from different perspectives. I was able to predict the end but there was one or two twists that I wasn’t able to see coming.
  • (4/5)
    Twist after twist. Did not see that end coming. Just when you think you have it figured out here comes something new.
  • (5/5)
    Really great book, twists you don’t see coming. Excellent narration.
  • (2/5)
    Predictable. Horrible shiny people getting their comeuppance. Waste of time

    The writing sparkles. Characters are well drawn. Plot is weak.
