Review: Sometimes I Lie by Alice Feeney



Synopsis: My name is Amber Reynolds. There are three things you should know about me:

1. I’m in a coma.
2. My husband doesn’t love me anymore.
3. Sometimes I lie.

Nothing happens by accident.

After being in a bit of a reading slump for a week or so, this is exactly the kind of book I needed to read to get my life back in order. This book is fast-paced, twisty & turny and overall fun to read. Thank you, Feeney, for getting me out of my slump with this terrific mystery thriller!

This is most definitely, one of the best thrillers I’ve read in such a long time. The writing style is superb, the characters are so well developed and complex (in a good way!!) and the twists in the plot come out of nowhere (again, in a good way)!

I loved each and every character in this. No one is originally as they seem and as the plot builds and builds around them, each person grows more and more complex. We suspect all of them for different things, so sure we’re right, and then all of a sudden, a new revelation appears and we’re shocked back into not knowing what the hell is going on. That’s what’s so great about this novel, you think you’ve got it, you think you know what will happen next, but don’t be so naive! Just you wait and see what Feeney pulls out of the bag next.

As for the plot, I thought this was wonderfully unique. Having the perspective of Amber in a coma, telling us her story, was an incredible way to keep us “in the know” without actually knowing anything!

This is a seriously dark, but a superbly written and executed novel. Any psychological thriller lovers out there, you must pick this up in 2017! I’m shocked that this is a debut, it really does feel like the work of a prolific, long-time author. I hope Feeney continues to write as well as this.

Buy it here!

Thanks to Netgalley and HQ for giving me the opportunity to read this in exchange for an honest review.

  1. Woohoo!!! I love reading reviews raving over a book I also loved. It is brilliant isn’t it. Everyone has to read it asap so it can be discussed in detail. I’m still not sure I fully grasped everything. 😁
