Loved It!

I've bought and read so many awful "thrillers" lately that I'm afraid of wasting money on any more. Liar, however, was completely entertaining all the way through. I thought I knew where it was all headed, but was pleasantly surprised that I hadn't figured it out after all. I found the ending to be unpredictable and I loved it!

This wasn't so much a taut, keep you up at night thriller, as a slowly building suspense novel that makes you think you know everything, only to find out there's more to the story. Like most books in this genre, there are always things that are a bit unbelievable, but this was absolutely one of the best books I've listened to in quite awhile. Lucy Price-Lewis narrated it superbly.

Now this is a psychological suspense mystery! I listened to it straight through. The reader does a very good job. This is British, which I love, intelligent, secretive, not a police officer anywhere.

A compelling and twisted psychological thriller!

British author K.L.Slater uses the interesting device of stating the book with the last few sentences of Liar, identified as such, as the opening sentences of the novel.

I hardly know what to say about Liar. It certainly is compelling. Guessing the outcome even with the author's words at the beginning is impossible. Ultimately it is about determination to get ones way even if means destroying oneself in doing so. It is a wonderful novel even as it is incredibly, frighteningly dark. Narration by Lucy Price-Lewis could not be better.

Liar may be the best psychological thriller I have ever read and it is easily deserves a 5 star rating. This author has great talent. I VERY HIGHLY RECOMMEND Liar.

Intense and Twisted!

Great psychological thriller that kept me guessing. Never expected the ending to take such a turn. Scary to think we can be fooled by those who are closest to us. What a big surprise that was! Although this is not a lengthy novel, the time spent listening really flew by. As for Lucy Price-Lewis performance of each of the characters, she definitely managed to bring all of them to life. It was easy to figure out which one was speaking at any given time. I will now check out other books from the author. 😊👍🏼

Chose on a Lark, it was a Good Lark!

A low-key thriller that will keep you with those earbuds glued in!

Narration is spot -on, her voice is able to portray each character's quirks very well. The book is low -key yet still fast paced, if that makes any sense!

The ending will leave you with a "What?" , but in a good way.

The book is simple, exciting, twisty and not what you are expecting.

Really enjoyed this.

I wouldn't recommend it.

I was disappointed with this book, especially after reading so many rave reviews. I found much of Judy's internal dialogue to be extremely repetitive, tedious and uninteresting. And the story was quite predictable. The secondary characters were very weak.

Whoa, that was good!

Very well-written intrigue between soon-to-be mother-in-law Judy and her son's girlfriend, Amber, who seems to be a manipulative psycho. Well-paced and gets to each point skillfully without beating each idea to death, this is a crisp and concise psychological thriller that left me creeped out, but satisfied (and that's a little bit unsettling, huh? Ah well). Well worth the time and credit! Way above average.

Superb narration and tense plot

Now don't get me wrong I loved this book as it does everything it says on the tin but, for me the ending/beginning was plainly obvious. A tale of secrets, deception, motherhood, madness and tenderness all served up with a dash of revenge. Its a fast paced, twisty turny novel that does keep you on the edge of your seat or in my case a cup of hot chocolate frozen between table and mouth.

All the clues to the ending are set out as the characters are given meat to their bones and the author can certainly hold your attention with her descriptive narrative.

Worth a credit.

Predictable, awful book

Nearly gave up a few times but persevered
The lead character does nothing but moan all the way through and the narrators voice is grating
Weak characterisation, teamed with a weak story line
Even the side story was pointless
Don’t waste your credits on this poor excuse for literacy

Liar

The problem with certain thrillers is that the plots are far too contrived and formulaic and this is what has happened here. The main character, Judi Jukes, from whom at least 80% of the story's POV is taken from, is an unlikable and overbearing wife, mother and grandmother. Therefore the persona of Amber Carr (a name, which quite frankly reminded me of a suburban mini cab firm) doesn't juxtapose nearly well enough. As for Henry, Ben and the boys ... they might has well been selected from central casting.

There are a few continuity errors too - a joint of roast pork morphs into beef and Judi's age compared to her eldest grandson is also awry. Also, she works in a GPs surgery, so wouldn't she be able to subdue her menopausal flushes a little more effectively.

The narrator, Lucy Price Lewis, was measured throughout, albeit with more of a Yorkshire twang as opposed to a Nottinghamshire lilt.

predictable, boring & boring narration

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

don't bother, from the first moment this book is predictable and dull, even the voice of the narration is boring and badly chose.

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Lucy Price-Lewis?

almost anyone

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

boredom dissapoinment

Boring and irritating

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

No - I nearly returned this twice as it was annoying me so much! The central characters in this book are dull and based on stereotypes - the over-protective mother in law, the stepmother, the desperate lonely guy etc. <br/>I was expecting a thriller but this was really a domestic tale of woe with 2-D characters. It only became anything resembling a thriller in the last hour of the book.<br/>

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

It was ok - it was the only vaguely interesting part. It didn't ring true for me but to be honest i was happy when it was finished so i could start listening to a proper thriller!

Which scene did you most enjoy?

Probably when the two rival characters confronted each other towards the end.

Did Liar inspire you to do anything?

Nope

okay

The story had potential but it really didn't deliver. I persevered to the end of the book but found it very average. the twists and turns seemed very contrived with not enough effort going into the deliverance of them.
