The plot of Liane Moriarty’s novels always include a ‘incident’ and the story is built around it. This was no different.
So here the story stars revealing layer by layer of an incident which took place on a weekend. What actually happened is what we will find out much much later provided we have the patience. Since i had i truly am not guilty of leaving this book in the middle. So yes patience is a must for this novel otherwise it will be really difficult to move forward.
The problem with ‘Truly Madly Guilty’ was the build-up which was given to the whole story about an incident which took place, which should have helped the plot, but actually didn’t. The whole thing seemed a big exaggeration so much so that, that “something” which happened on that day seemed just an unlucky accident , not something you should brood or feel guilty about over and over again. Just my opinion.
But having said that I still loved the authors writing style and her characterisation of characters. The characters were simple yet complicated in their own way and there was a love/hate relationship between me and the characters, well they all seemed very real to me. The revelation of each character’s positive part and negative was outstanding. The whole idea of the story was to shows how an incident can affects a human’s relationship and also how it can change a persons perspective towards a person and towards life which according to me was the best part. All i can say is I would have missed a good novel if i hadn’t read this one. So i definitely don’t regret reading this at all.
