Er is about to change everything and not just for her Rachel and Tess barely know Cecilia or each other but they too are about to feel the earth shattering repercussions of her husband’s secretAcclaimed author Liane Moriarty has written a gripping thought provoking novel about how well it is really possible to know our spouses and ultimately ourselve. I'm just going to leave it at 3 I don't know how I really feel about this one I felt the same way about Big Little Lies because I listened to both books on audio the first time And for some reason her books don't work for me the first time around on audio So I will leave it at that for now I know I loved Big Little Lies when I read the physical book so we shall see Mel 🖤🐾🐺

The Husband's SecretAt the heart of The Husband’s Secret is a letter that’s not meant to be readMy darling Cecilia if you’re reading this then I’ve diedImagine that your husband wrote you a letter to be opened after his death Imagine too that the letter contains his deepest darkest secret something with the potential to destroy not just the life you built together. Some secrets are meant to stay secret forever Just ask Pandora The Husband's Secret is a decent book but I honestly expected to enjoy it a lot than I did I love mysteries that focus on the characters and their relationships with each other; and I love reading about morally uestionable people especially women I find complex relationships between women to be fascinating woven with friendship jealousies and secrets but I found this book superficial and at times even boringFirstly the titular secret is not a mystery and is so easy to guess immediately that I was hoping it would be something else Secondly I think the secret and the details behind it are not very interesting and despite it being a serious issue it doesn't feel particularly scandalous or exciting You open this book just like Pandora opening her boxjar promised this huge secret by the title and blurb and yet for me it was very anticlimacticIt gets three stars because Moriarty writes about selfish depressed and troubled middle class women very well The dialogue and dynamics between them are funny entertaining and contain those rare pieces of human honesty that only a few authors can achieve little thoughts feelings or behaviours that are personal and strange but instantly recognizable and true In reality the human reaction to certain situations discovering a dark secret being dumped for someone else etc is not often what we think it should be It's like when you play out meeting someone famous in your head and you think you know exactly what you would do until you meet them and your plans fly out the window In this book I get the sense that Moriarty has tapped into real human reactions and behaviour these women don't always feel and behave in a typical or conventional way and yet it seems all the real because of itBut interesting character studies aside it did get tiresome after a while When you strip away the not so interesting mystery this is a book about the relationships of a bunch of privileged middle class woman And there's really only so much of that I can take before I start losing interestBlog | Facebook | Twitter | Instagram | Tumblr
