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.

Just so enjoyable
I’ve read and been very entertained by a number of Liane Moriarty’s books, but I think Nine Perfect Strangers is a stand-out. The characters are so well developed that you find sympathy with most of them despite their imperfections.
And while there’s plenty of gripping suspense, somehow it has a lighter tone than some books of its genre - personally I’ve found so many similar books excessively dark and turgid! I thoroughly enjoyed this one, and I’m sad I’ve finished it. Great endings though!
Liane is one of my favourite authors - I’ve loved all of her previous books and couldn’t put them down. I struggled through this one though - it was a weird plot and didn’t hold my attention (especially the hallucinogenic bits). Lots of the characters had potential (loved Frances) but Masha did my head in. Hugely disappointed as I’ve waited ages for this book.
Too many stories going on, no punchlines. Lost interest
