My Review of “Sometimes I Lie” by Alice Feeney
WOW! Kudos to Alice Feeney , Author of “Sometimes I Lie”, for the riveting, captivating, intense Psychological Thriller. The timeline of the story deals with mostly the present and the past, and leaves one wondering about the future. Alice Feeney describes her characters as complex and complicated. Some are pathological, and even the narration is told in possibly unreliable voices.
Amber Reynolds is in a coma in a hospital and tells you three things from the get-go.
“1.I’m in a coma”. 2. My husband doesn’t love me anymore. 3. Sometimes I lie.”
The author goes to the past, and brings in diaries of younger lives, and as we are in the present, we are with Amber as she hears the voices around her, not being able to do anything. How did she get here? Who’s was she with? Why did this happen?
As the story progresses, so does the intensity. All of the characters seem to have secrets, and seem to be suspect. There are many twists and turns, and what you think, is questionable. From the beginning to the end, there is tremendous anxiety and tension.
Of course, at the end, I will just say, I said “OMG!!!!!” I would highly recommend this book for readers who enjoy a face paced exciting, thrilling, psychological mystery that is hauntingly very engrossing. I received this Advanced Reading ARC for my honest review.
