The Lying Game – Ruth Ware

Psychological thriller, horror, fiction.

Rating 6/10

A group of teenage girls at a boarding school become best of friends and create a game called the Lying Game. It has some rules that are common sense to have. An incident happens and the four girls part ways. As adults, they all are called for a meeting because of that incident. Now they have no choice but to continue to lie so that they don’t get into trouble. It is a fight to make themselves look as innocent as possible. When the truth comes out, someone was murdered, and it is a fight to escape.

This novel was fine and well written. Didn’t really understand the plot much and it confused me of what happened. Ruth Ware has other great novels, this one wasn’t the best Ware’s written. This review is short because I don’t know what else to say. Don’t lie to anyone because lying is wrong. That is the main message of this novel. Lying has consequences and those consequences can be severe. I did like the thrilling scenes that did occur in this novel. Wasn’t happy with the ending though.
