I prefer nonfiction books, but this was a very nice escape!
The plot is woven perfectly and I adored all of the characters immediately.
I will recommend this book to my friends as I really enjoyed the story.
The way Liane Moriarty took her characters through interesting twists and turns. Then she brings it all together and makes you look at life through different eyes.
I enjoyed the husband who wrote the secret letter. You felt for him and what he went through and how you ended up feeling about him in the end.
This book did make me laugh and cry. The characters feel like real people you know and you feel like you are there with them.
I like this book so much I have listened to it three times already and plan on listening to it again and again.
Someone who is in Philosophy 101.
Great stories have morals imbedded in them. That said, this read like a children's fable in the approach of the obvious moral questions being supplied more like a lecture. It read like a religious philosophy professor drilling a point.
A caring warm voice that makes do with another person's soapbox.
I would rearrange the scenes so that the moral dilemma was presented more subtly and not in a crescendo writing style,where everything comes together all at once. I would arrange it to feel more like real life, more believable.
I respect the writer's work, achievement, and point of view, and hope that my criticism is found to be constructive towards any future projects.
Liane Moriarty always makes me think and try to look beyond whats right in front of me . Which isn't easy to do with the busy lives we lead these days. I couldn't put this book down. And as always, a beautiful and perfect performance by Caroline Lee!!
I loved this book! I love Caroline Lee as a narrator and this author does not disappoint. She is quickly moving to the top of my list as one of my favorite authors.
I love books by Liane Moriarty, and The Husband’s Secret was no exception. I actually listened to the Audible version twice… once last January 2016 and then again in October of the same year. The Husband’s Secret contained all of the elements that I love in Moriarty’s books. The Australian setting is always somewhat exotic when reading from the US. However, the elementary school mothers’ culture appears to be universal. I like the strong female characters, their struggles, growth and intertwined relationships. In The Husband’s Secret, the strong females were woven around several male characters that were significant, but not particularly strong. There were also some unexpected twists. Caroline Lee’s narration was excellent. The Husband’s Secret is definitely a good listen and I’m sure it would be an equally good read.
I thought this was really good and as the title says, I liked it more than I expected to. A good mix of what I would consider kind of a chick flick feel and some suspense. Definitely going to listen to more by this author.
Insightful story of several families and their interwoven lives brings the reader on a remarkable Journey through love friendship loss and the things we could have done should have done or might have done. the characters all remind me of somebody I know, they are each believable and compelling on their own and a force when brought together. I especially appreciate the honesty introspection the female characters in this book. there is a lot of loss and sadness in this book which I think is important to know for people who would prefer not to take a trip down that path. That said, it is handled delicately and with refreshing honesty..
