The Lying Game de Ruth Ware

  1. 00
    The Crossing Places de Elly Griffiths (MissBrangwen)
    MissBrangwen: The settings of these novels are similar (vast and desolate beaches, marshes and tidal flats), only that "The Crossing Places" is a much better novel in my opinion, while in "The Lying Game", the setting was one of the few aspects I enjoyed at all.

The Lying Game is a page turner. And a bit predictable. I would rather have given it 3 1/2 stars. It's a good beach read. ( )

I like to read a really cruddy book once or twice a year to help me appreciate the good ones I read. I do not go looking for terrible books, they just usually find me. So, thank you, Ruth Ware. I am sure whatever book I read after this will be amazing to me. ( )

On a cool June morning, a woman is walking her dog in the idyllic coastal village of Salten along a tidal estuary known as the Reach. Before she can stop him, the dog charges into the water to retrieve what first appears to be a wayward stick, but to her horror, turns out to be something much 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, that says only, “I need you.”

The four girls were best friends at Salten, a second rate 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. The myriad and complicated rules of the game are strict: no lying to each other—ever. Bail on the lie when it becomes clear it is about to be found out. 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).

Compelling, suspenseful mystery about a group of four female friends. Their lives have become bound together by a secret they have jointly kept about a traumatic event that occurred seventeen years ago, while attending boarding school. The story is told by one of the friends, Isa, now 32 years old with a six-month-old infant. I found the portrayal of the mother-infant bond particularly effective. The author is skilled at creating a suspenseful atmosphere, and the story is filled with distinctive characters. Her descriptions of the environment are striking – I could almost smell the sea air from the dock of the rustic Tide Mill. The story unfolds gradually, switching between past and present, leaving the reader a figurative bread crumb trail that leads to the discovery of additional clues. I found that some of my hunches were correct, but there were enough surprises to keep it interesting. Recommended to readers who enjoy slowly-building mysteries and suspense.

I received this book in a Goodreads giveaway. ( )

The Lying Game by Ruth Ware

Fatima, Thea, Isa and Kate have been keeping a secret since their time at Boarding school. When Kate texts the others saying she needs them, they are there for her. Soon they find that some secrets can be hard to keep.

A fast paced psychological thriller. Told from past to present with twist, turns and secrets. I was hooked from the first page, until the end. I recommend The Lying Game to those who enjoy psychological thrillers. ( )

The Reach is wide and quiet this morning, the pale blue sky streaked with pink mackerel-belly clouds, the shallow sea barely rippling in the slight breeze, and so the sound of the dog barking breaks into the calm like gunshots, setting flocks of gulls crying and wheeling in the air.
