The Liar’s Room by Simon Lelic


This book was advertised for fans of Alfred Hitchcock – how could I pass up a read like that?!

Thank you Berkley Books for sending me a copy in exchange for my honest review.

Adam walks into his new therapist’s office in search for some answers. His therapist Susanna has no idea what’s in store for her. An event in Susanna’s past is slowly coming back to haunt her more than ever. Adam has news for Susanna that she’s not ready to recieve. And, most of all, Susanna’s daughter’s life is at stake. Can Susanna save her? What does Adam have to tell her? What information is Adam in search for?

I was trying to predict the twist the entire time I was reading it. I really thought it was pretty obvious…but I was wrong and couldn’t be happier. I love when I can’t predict the twist! I felt the ending was a bit rushed after the book spent so much time leading up to such a dramatic finale. It is intense! Some features of this story were a little dark for my taste, but it adds to the suspense and the edge-of-your-seat feeling. It was an enjoyable read, but I wouldn’t find myself reading it again because it was so profound the first time around.

4/5 Stars
