We Were Liars
by e. lockhart
My review: 5 of 5 stars
Like shocking endings? Try We Were Liars. You won’t see the ending coming. We Were Liars reads like a narrative poem with incredibly brilliant prose. Because of its poetic language and widespread use of imagery, the book is at first hard to read and follow. But within a few pages, you’ll be so engrossed in the mystery you’ll fall completely under its spell. As for the ending? It was just – WOW!
“Silence is a protective coating over pain” (p. 29).
“If you want to live where people are not afraid of mice, you must give up living in palaces” (p. 106).
“Be normal, now. Right now. Because you are. Because you can be” (p.115).
