Just finished reading the intense We Were Liars by e. lockhart, which for good reason has been getting lots of buzz. Beautifully written, great care taken with past and present tense, dark and emotional, a page turner. Spoiler alert: I sensed the twist/ending early on (though not the full scope of it) because of shades of The Sixth Sense and so many reviews raving about the shocking ending. As a librarian, I read reviews before purchasing books, so I usually have a good sense of what the book's about before I get to read it. With these reviews in mind, I read every word of this book intently (wondering all the time, what could be so shocking?), so I didn’t need to immediately re-read it as others have. One thing that threw me for a minor loop through my intense reading, on the first page of the family tree, the main character Cadence’s last name is listed as “Easton,” but she refers to herself as Cadence Sinclair Eastman in the book. I thought that was going to be one of the twists, but it turns out to just be a typo. Like Where Things Come Back by John Corey Whaley, the ending left me unsettled, but in a good way. Those last few lines made we wonder if I really understood Cadence’s character as the author intended. I highly recommend this book – it will make you think and wonder and be a little…kinder.
