The Lying Game

Quick take

They'd lie to anyone and everyone about everything, except they'd never lie to each other.

Why I love it

Book of the Month

From the author of Book of the Month member favorite The Woman in Cabin 10, The Lying Game is the story of four former boarding school friends who made a game out of lying—they'’d lie to anyone and everyone about everything, except they’d never lie to each other. When, years later, three of the friends receive a distressed text from the fourth, the women must come together to face the truth, and what has been false all along.

    I definitely enjoyed the story, just as much as I enjoy guessing the endings ahead of time. I was able to do so in this case, yet again, but I found it to still be a rewarding and a fitting end.

    I loved this book. I read the whole thing in 2 days. Ruth Ware has a way of leading you down one path, then jumping out in front of you when you least expect it. She's done it again.

  • Shingle Springs , CA

    This was a really good read. I couldnt put it down. The author did a really good job of building the characters and you find yourself acdelting behaviors you may not normally accept.

  • Washington, DC

    This has been my favorite Ruth Ware novel so far! I was on the edge of my seat the whole way through and didn't see the end coming at all. Very gripping.

    The start lulled me. But the characters drew me in. Half way in my brain demanded to know what was going to happen and just what was really going on.

  • Amarillo, TX

    Great book! Easy to get into and the author really knows how to make her characters real and interesting! Would recommend this book to anyone!

  • Dallas, TX

    This book kept me guessing until the last page. Well written to give you clues, but keep questioning what will happen. Couldn't put it down!

  • Gloucester city, NJ

    although i don't agree with the whole concept of the lying game. I thought it was well written and i couldn't put it down.

  • Springdale , AR

    I found this book to better than the Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware. The main character is easier to like and relate too.
