After reading the reviews posted here, I was compelled to write one of my own. Many readers are frustrated with the presence of lies within the writing, but then they say the characters are unbelievable. A little oxymoronic, no? You expect a believable liar to tell you the whole truth. Interesting. The book was engaging, intelligent, and it held me to keep reading--solely because I wanted to know the truth. When I found that she lied, I always read faithfully on.

I love book. I love reading. And this is one book i wish i never picked up. It was well written and had an O.k. plot.....but truly i wish i never read the book. Its weird but not in a weird good book kind of way. Just take my advise this truly is a book you do not ever want to read. I dreaded trying to finish the book.

    I'd be lying if I said that I didn't enjoy this!

    Micah has a problem - and it has nothing to do with her being allergic to the truth. Her not-boyfriend-although-secretly-sneaking-around-with-him boy friend has been murdered, and she may or may not know the who and the why and the how. But that's not the problem. No, the problem is that lying has become natural to Micah as breathing - and so no one will even believe her if she comes forward with anything close to the truth. As far as Micah is concerned, the truth gets hairier by the second.

    You may remember my less-than-stellar review of Justine Larbalestier's debut How To Ditch Your Fairy, so pardon me when I admit that I waited a while before I dived into LIAR despite seeing positive reviews. Boy, did I miss out! LIAR reminded me of FIGHT CLUB or A BEAUTIFUL MIND where nothing is what they seem - and you have a less-than-reliable narrator who will keep you guessing until the end. Except Justine Larbalestier leaves readers with a BETTER Gordian knot to unravel. There were some slow moments, but they were deliciously intertwined with more complicated happenings that will give readers some time to digest the lies and truths Micah admits - particularly when they take an unexpected detour to the paranormal.

    Good

    I enjoyed the book but I can't say it was much of a thrillar.
