Book Review – We were liars by E. Lockhart

We Were Liars - E. Lockhart

Book Review


A beautiful and distinguished family. 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. True love. The truth.


Holy shit!! This book was amazing. This was, without a doubt, one of the most powerful and well-crafted books I have read in a really long time. The main questions is, what happened and why is no one talking about it? There are hints floating in every corner, pieces of this carefully constructed puzzle laid out for you to put together. I was completely caught off guard by the ending, and gave me goosebumps and pulled my heart clean out of my chest.


I got through this book in under a day, I couldn’t put it down. I needed to know what happened. As soon as I had closed the book and wiped the tears from my eyes, I curled up in bed with my parents for a big hug and told them I loved them. It’s the kind of book that makes you grateful for what you have. I would recommend this book to everyone! Read it now!
