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.

'". Lockhart is one of our most important novelists, and she has given us her best book yet. Thrilling, beautiful, and blisteringly smart", We Were Liars is utterly unforgettable.' (John Green, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Fault In Our Stars)
"Irresistible." (The New York Times Book Review)
"Haunting, sophisticated." (The Wall Street Journal)
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.
I loved this book soooooooo much. E.lockhart is a fantastic writer. I definitely recommend this book and you can get the most out of it by going in to it not knowing much about the story. The narrator was okay but some of the voices for the characters were not that amazing. Overall I really recommend this wonderful mysterious book
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
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!
The story is interesting and you start to understand and appreciate the characters. A good look at the selfishness and greed that the wealthy suffer from, and ultimately the hurt and devastation that it can cause. It addressed racial issues and ultimately reminded you that love and family are much more important than money and material things, however you could see the twist coming a mile off. Still it was enjoyable and thought provoking. It was also read very well.
I really enjoyed the way this story played aloud and the use of words my the author
I really enjoyable listen
I had a tear in my eye the whole final chapter.
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.
