A beautiful and distinguished family. A private island. A brilliant, damaged girl; a passionate, political boy. A group of four friends - the Liars - whose friendship turns destructive. A revolution. An accident. A secret. Lies upon lies. True love. The truth.
We Were Liars is a modern, sophisticated suspense novel from New York Times bestselling author, National Book Award finalist, and Printz Award honoree E. Lockhart. Listen to it. And if anyone asks you how it ends, just LIE.

cutting 5 of the 6 and 1/2 hours
nothing really happened until the last 30 minutes
this is an excellent example of pointless narration about scenes that make no difference to the story whatsoever. Whoever did the editing on this needs to read the dictionary definition of what an editor should do.
every one except the first and last, then it would have been great!
I think you get the idea!
We Were Liars is an interesting story and the narrator's voice works well.
I was confused with the first third of the book, as I never connected enough with the characters individually, they all just became part of the backdrop. I don't think I even new the main character well.
Whether or not this was purposeful with an unreliable protagonist I don't know, because at the end I was able to understand the distance between myself, the protagonist and the other characters. However, I think this could have been achieved even if I had cared about the characters more.
Still, it was a good listen, even though I nearly abandoned it many times, I'm glad I didn't.
This was a great book, a very easy read and something which you don't just forget. The ending, though tragic, is amazing and completely unexpected. Well worth a read
Nope I haven't.
Maybe if the cast was interesting & new comers breaking through not the tired old adults playing teens/ hyping names at the mo.
Slow build up. Less is more.
This book was a real page turner I couldn't put it down! It was a very easy read it but well written.
Beautiful, Heartbreaking and mysterious... Loved it. The narrator was good too. When the girl finally realised that she burned the house down with people and dogs it was so sad and depressing. Listen it if you haven't already.
