A MUST read
on 12 August 2016
Excellent. Like all good stories the ending is not what you might have imagined as you read the book.
All good and enjoyable stories should have a twist in the tail (tale) where all your pre- and mis- conceptions fall in tatters at your feet. The Liar, as is to be expected, has not just one twist in the tail, it has several! I did feel that I was being rushed towards the end and I think, on reflection, that I would have liked there to have been just one twist and it to have come upon me more rapidly, rather than all the theories I had devised, unravelling little by little.
Like all good books I shall re-read this several times before putting it aside for a year or two to be re-enjoyed when I have mostly forgotten the sub-plots and can read it as if it were the first time. I always find Stephen's writing refreshing since I know it will be correctly punctuated and grammatically correct, unlike some books, especially by authors of a particular nationality, where I have constantly to re-read a sentence, a phrase, a paragraph, even several pages because poor writing or poor punctuation has confused me.
