Customer Reviews

Mystery isn’t my favourite YA genre (I’m a fantasy girl all the way) but occasionally I like to sink my claws into a story that will leave me at the edge of my seat with the WHO-DUNNIT element. And that’s the sole reason why while One Of Us Is Lying was a GOOD book, it didn’t make me suspect the four teenagers in the room – NOT ONCE – making it seem slightly off. That vital blame game was missing and while I was curious to see who did it, I NEVER FELT THAT INTENSE NEED TO KNOW. Thoughts: 1. THE PLOT OF THE BOOK WAS REALLY INTERESTING, and that’s the reason I requested it! Five teenagers locked in detention, a car crash to send the teacher out and the boy with a gossip website and a horrifying secret about everyone in that room dies from an allergic reaction. GREAT PLOT. 2. I also loved that the book was told from the viewpoints of all four potential murderers. It made you get to know them a lot more and piece together stories of the story. 3. While I liked the above point (^), it was also the reason the book didn’t have the who-dunnit element. NONE OF THE CHARACTERS HATED SIMON ENOUGH TO KILL HIM, and I fully believed that they didn’t making me uninterested in finding out which of them killed him. Honestly, I LIKED the characters too much to see them as murderers. 4. One of my favourite characters was Addison. I adored her character development in the book. She took huge steps to from a girl that made every decision based on her boyfriend’s whims and fancies to one who one who cut her hair and turned badass. I loved her spirit and I really liked how much she changed. 5. Honestly, I liked the book. The characters were well developed, the plot was definitely unique but I didn’t SUSPECT ANYONE. It didn’t make me blame anyone and I just accepted the ending as it came. A very well constructed book with interesting characters that is definitely worth a read! 4 stars
