APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
The bestselling author of Big Little Lies delivers an intensely funny satire of the wellness industry in Nine Perfect Strangers. We meet a cast of unforgettable characters (including a past-her-prime romance author and a pair of cashed-up lottery winners heading for divorce) who arrive at the Tranquillum House retreat ready to transform their lives. But the group didn’t count on a program director so determined to get results that she’ll push them to their limits—and right over the edge. Liane Moriarty’s novel touches on serious topics like suicide, grief and self-acceptance with gentle compassion and her trademark wit.
Send a motley crew of hurting but comfortably heeled Aussies to a secluded resort for a pricey 10-day "Mind and Body Total Transformation Retreat" and what happens? In this cannily plotted, continually surprising, and frequently funny page-turner from bestseller Moriarty (Big Little Lies), nothing like the restorative reset they're anticipating. The nine guests at Tranquillum House include middle-aged romance writer Frances Welty, her normal spunkiness shaken by recent personal and professional setbacks, and 20-year-old Zoe Marconi, there with her parents on the anniversary of the family tragedy that shattered their lives. What they haven't reckoned on is Tanquillum House's messianic but precariously stable director, whose secret agenda could be dangerous to their health. It would be unsporting to disclose more about Moriarty's largely endearing cast, since her progressive revelations about them contribute so much toward making this such a deeply satisfying thriller. Moriarty delivers yet another surefire winner. Author tour.)
Not quite good enough
Liane Moriarty writes well ; however this book drifts into the hysterical and unbelievable and makes itself slightly ridiculous.
It’s a shame as I know the film rights have been bought by Nicole Kidman and others.
Enjoyable, easy read
Interesting characters and a nice easy read. I was not expecting the plot twist. I enjoyed the humour however I thought the ending was too neat.
Half way through another author takes over and sends it careering into idiocy. What an odd book…
Odd and unsatisfying.
