Publisher's Summary

Once again Liane Moriarty uses her unique, razor-sharp observational skills to sift through the emerging fault lines of seemingly happy families.
If only they'd said no....
What if they hadn't gone? That's the question Clementine can't stop asking herself.
It was just a backyard barbeque. They didn't know their hosts that well. They were friends of friends. They could so easily have said no. But she and her husband, Sam, said yes, and now they can never change what they did and didn't do that beautiful winter's day. Six responsible adults. Three cute kids. One yapping dog. It's a normal weekend in the suburbs. What could possibly go wrong?

No Different to Other Liane Moriarty Work

Same painstaking trickling out of information to the reader. Liane Moriarty makes a meal of scraps. It is thrilling the first time one reads her works, tiresome the second, and exhausting the third.

Caroline Lee reads well, but often reads negative emotion into what could be neutral statements.

Truly Madly Guilty

I found the book hard to get into, but then kept on wanting to know more. Amazing how one event can trigger so much..
By the end of the book, I was into it and enjoyed it.

Okay listen but not the best, too longwinded

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Yes, the fact that for most of the story you do not know what has happened at the bar b q. It is like listening to a story but not knowing what it is about. It is far too long with not enough happening. So much time is spent on different aspects of their lives such as the audition and it's just not that interesting.

What was most disappointing about Liane Moriarty’s story?

It takes too long to get going and I wasn't keen on most of the characters, I didn't find them particularly likeable. When you did find out what had happened in all its detail it was quite a good plot but by that time I wasn't really that bothered.

Did Caroline Lee do a good job differentiating each of the characters? How?

The narration takes a bit of getting used to but it is easy to differentiate between the characters.I liked Erica's mother at the meal, she was funny!

Did Truly Madly Guilty inspire you to do anything?

No, apart from reach the end.

Any additional comments?

It was a good listen in parts but the almost tedious detail spoils it. For me it needed more to happen early on or to be a bit shorter.
