#10 - One Of Us Is Lying by Karen M. McManus

One of Us Is Lying - Karen  M. McManus

One of Us Is Lying is the story of what happens when five strangers walk into detention and only four walk out alive. Everyone is a suspect, and everyone has something to hide. 

Pretty damn exciting, right?! I’ve seen this book everywhere and after reading the synopsis, I definitely wanted to read it. I bought the audiobook with my credit of the month on Audible. 

It took me ages to listen to this, because I only listen to audiobook in the car (and sometimes I'd rather listen to music), or while doing the dishes and stuff like that, but I don't spend a lot of time on it, except when I'm really captivated, which was not the case here. I enjoyed the story but I had difficulty staying focused while listening to it. 

The four main characters are clichés: the bad guy, the smart girl, the pretty popular girl and the baseball star. I think it was intentional but it was a problem with me because it made them too shallow in my opinion. 

Still, this book was full of twists, many things were a big surprise for me as I did not see them coming. Other things were easy to figure out, but that’s also part of the fun. 

It was a bit darker than I expected, the ending was pretty harsh. But I liked it. 

All in all, it was an enjoyable read, it just did not blow my mind as I expected.
