E will never be the same againIn Lies Lies Lies Sunday Times bestseller Adele Parks explores the darkest corners of a relationship in freefall in a mesmerising tale of marriage and secre. Instagram || Twitter || Facebook || || PinterestLIES LIES LIES is not a nice book about nice people It's a surprisingly gritty nasty little book that doesn't offer up any easy excuses or answers for the very flawed humans inside its pages The blurb and cover for this book are a little deceptive because it makes it seem like this is going to be a mystery and I suppose it is but only in the sense that the dual POVs allow for some unreliable narrating as characters lie to others and themselves withholding several crucial truths from the reader until the endSimon and Daisy have been married since their post college days but now that marriage is on the rocks Simon is struggling with his increasingly worsening alcoholism and Daisy has a few secrets she's hiding from her husband as she tries to hold her ill concealed disdain for the man she married in check The only thing they can agree on is their uneuivocal love for their young daughter Millie who is full of light and wants to be a dancer And then one day something terrible happensI liked how this book approached the dark subjects inside with one glaring exception which is a mild spoiler but I'll state it here because it upset me so much I hate it when animals die in fiction Apart from that I thought Adele Parks did a great job not resorting to stereotypes It was hard to decide who I really felt sorry for and my emotions were in a constant state of flux until the end LIES LIES LIES is ultimately a test of how far people go for the ones they love how much they're willing to tolerate and whether some things in a relationship are just impossible to forgive The side characters in this book are also really interesting They never just fade to background all of them are involved in the plot pretty heavily and my opinions of them changed several times too That was pretty refreshing since oftentimes supporting characters can feel like narrative props than peopleThe only thing that did make me raise my eyebrows a bit was how the subject of withdrawal was handled Alcohol is a depressant and when someone drinks as much as Simon is and is suddenly forced to uit cold turkey there is not just a danger of delirium tremens which he experienced but also death It felt negligible on the part of the people responsible for the abrupt uitting to not know that and slowly wean him off of it as I believe is typical in situations like theseOverall LIES LIES LIES was a really engrossing book and I had a hard time putting it down once I realized that it wouldn't resort to the tired old tropes and actually neatly deflected some of my expectations uite cleverly I've seen a lot of my friends reading Adele Parks and now I know why If you enjoy books about tautly plotted family dysfunction like Lianne Moriarty or Jodi Picoult I think you'll really enjoy this one It's brutal Thanks to the publisher for sending me a copy in exchange for an honest review   35 to 4 stars
