It was weird. The main charcter says in the beginning, I won't lie anymore, and immediately starts lying to the reader, and reveals the lies she told at the end of the book. I wouldn't say the book was great, but it was okay. Some of the lies are really easy to guess through, so the whole time you're wondering whether what you're reading is the truth or a lie. It's kind of hard to figure out what the story is about, but I guess at the end it kind of narrows it down to something, but that something isn't talked about until about halfway through the book. I would not tell any of my friends to read it. It is ood to kill time, but not really anything else.


It was an interesting book. I found it a little sad, honestly (not saying why---that would spoil it). I also found it a little annoying how at the beginning of the book the main character promises to tell no more lies, and then lies about 10 times afterwards. Over all I would say it's a unique book with strange twists.


This incredible, yet chilling novel follows the confession of a young woman who has been accused of being involved in a crime against one of her classmates. The book documents her attempt to stay truthful with an audience... but slowly she peals away the layers of lies she compulsively tells. Great writing, engaging characters, and twists that are completely unpredictable, Liar is a great read.
