Publisher's Summary

Three sisters, one birthday, one little problem...

The three Kettle sisters have had a mortifying mishap. Their raucous, champagne-soaked birthday dinner has come to an abrupt end following a violent argument and an emergency dash to the hospital.

So who started it this time? Was it angry, hurt Cat, still recovering from the 'night of the spaghetti'? Was it Lyn, so serenely successful, at least on the outside? Or was it quirky, dreamy Gemma, the sister who can't keep a secret except for the most important one of all?

©2003 Liane Moriarty (P)2015 Bolinda

What the Critics Say

"I adored Three Wishes...fresh, very, very funny...also intelligent and unsentimental about family dynamics." (Marian Keyes)

    "Another gem from Liane Moriarty"

    This is the 4th book I've listened to from this author and again I was not disappointed.
    The characters established themselves very early on and are believable, likeable and funny and I found myself invested in finding out what happened to them.
    The only parts I found slightly confusing were those told from an onlookers perspective. Perhaps it was because it was an audio book with no visual clue in the text to indicate the departure from the protagonists view but once I'd cottoned on to the format it added additional insight.
    As always, Caroline Lee read wonderfully and I could listen to her narration all day. Well, perhaps apart from her attempt at an American accent, but she's wonderful so she's forgiven!
    Highly recommended for an escapist read/listen.

    "Returned!!"

    I had to listen to the prologue about 3 times before I could fully understand what was going on! It may have been easier to follow in the physical book.

    Found the narrators voice too grating and annoying, there was no difference between any of the characters

    Story
    "Compulsive!"
    Where does Three Wishes rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is the second of Liane Moriarty's books I've listened to and they have both been so completely absorbing that you feel as if you are part of the story. She writes about family in such an intimate way that you become a part of the family.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    There are three sisters (triplets) in the story and they are all compelling but Gemma is particularly interesting and inspires a lot of compassion and admiration.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    The story revolves around a scene in which the sisters have a spectacular row in a public place, which is both devastating and hysterical. The story is full of moments when you take a sharp intake of breath at the awful implications of what the family members say to each other.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Family, they just might kill you!


    Any additional comments?

    You won't be able to stop listening.

    "Excellent book from this author as always"
    If you could sum up Three Wishes in three words, what would they be?

    Interesting, funny, different


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed the book. I have read all of Liane Moriarty's books, They are not run of the mill 'chic-lit' they are far more than that. The storylines' of each of the triplets are each interesting in their own way. I liked Gemma. However, I could not warm to Lin or Kat I thought they were very cold, opinionated and arrogant women. The book jumps backward and forward in time and can sometimes get a bit confusing, but still keeps you on the edge, wanting to know the outcome of each scenario. A great book to listen to - the narrator is excellent too.
    I'm looking forward to the next book by Liane Moriarty!! Hurry up please!!

    "Disappointing."
    What did you like best about Three Wishes? What did you like least?

    I really battled to finish this book. The storyline is weak and lacks drama and suspense. I normally love Liane Moriarty's books so I was hugely disappointed I was not to be able to "get into" this one. I found the triplets too self-obsessed and void of character.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Liane Moriarty again?

    Yes, I've thoroughly enjoyed all her other books.

    "A great story"
    What made the experience of listening to Three Wishes the most enjoyable?

    The unravelling and analysis of relationships during the story


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Three Wishes?

    The beginning


    What does Caroline Lee bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    She is an excellent narrator - very listenable


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Never underestimate the quiet one.......


    Any additional comments?

    The little bits of commentary on situations over time by people outside the story detracted from it a bit but otherwise very compelling listen and interesting twists as expected from this author

    "Another cracker from this author/narrator combo"
    Any additional comments?

    I love Liane Moriarty's books, and Caroline Lee is the perfect narrator for them. The stories are witty, entertaining and funny with plenty of twists, and the characters are engaging and believable, with plenty of colour and depth. Great for a holiday or travel listen. My only criticism - Caroline Lee needs to brush up on her non-Australian accents, some of which were fairly shocking!

    "great fun Aussie story"
    What did you like best about Three Wishes? What did you like least?

    This story of triplets facing some major crises in their lives is amusingly written and engaging. Personally I didn't like the voice of the person reading it but that didn't prevent me finishing it.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Funny characters. Women dealing with crises and moving on in their lives.


    What three words best describe Caroline Lee’s performance?

    Annoying harsh voice


    If this book were a film would you go see it?

    Yes

    "her first novel..."

    This is her first novel and it is not nearly as good as the following books. I read this one last and did not enjoy it much. I absolutely love all her other books! Especially 1. What Alice forgot and 2. Big little lies. In comparison with those later books, Three Wishes cant measure up.

    What did you love best about Three Wishes?

    The characters are fabulous and funny. The storyline was pretty intense and it just kept getting bigger.


    Which character – as performed by Caroline Lee – was your favorite?

    Caroline Lee brings all the characters to life with her voice acting. She is brilliant.
