    Eh, it was okay.. Frustrating with no closure, you could predict the end from halfway through the book.
  • (3/5)
    Good but needs more depth to characters and ending meh
  • (3/5)
    I liked the set up of the story, but ultimately I was disappointed in how it played out. The reveal was expected, and not terribly surprising.

    I was hoping for a better ending.

  • (1/5)
    Between You and Me had an excellent twist at the end, so I had high hopes for Tell Me No Lies. I’ve never given a book less than 4 stars. This is the most enraging story I’ve ever wasted time with. I figured out the ending very early on but was hoping for a left turn to happen somewhere and prove me wrong; the only thing I was wrong about was continuing to waste my time on this story.

    Predictable, repetitive, and at the end - infuriating. Don’t waste precious hours of your life that could be spent on a decent story.

    While listening to this book I found myself asking lots of questions. There are a lot of loose ends in this book. Why didn’t she just say this? Why didn’t she just have her husband talk to her friend? The whole story could’ve been over simply but it wasn’t. I didn’t find it believable
  • (1/5)
    So disappointing! And frustrating! Predictable with a rubbish ending that suggests a sequel that no one want to listen to. I've enjoyed all Lisa's other books but this was rubbish!
  • (4/5)
    I had a hard time putting this down. I loved it until the end. It didn’t feel complete.
  • (3/5)
    Sincèrement, the most clueless principal character ever. Franchement, quelle merde

    I don’t like stories about weak women, and this one tops them all.

    I’ve loved all of Lisa Hall’s other books. But this, from beginning to end, was absolutely ridiculous. The choices the protagonist made, over and over and over, were just plain dumb. It’s like when you’re watching a horror movie and someone goes back in the house, knowing the serial killer is inside, and you’re shouting at the screen, “No!! You’re so stupid!! Get out of there!” So maddening. My sympathy for the protagonist just drifted and drifted smaller and smaller until the very end, when I didn’t feel sorry for her at all. What a bummer.

    Super predictable. I knew who the antagonist was way early on. The lead character & her hysterics was so annoying. Was 8 hours I'll never get back.

    Steph is a rape survivor, who had severe post partum psychosis after the birth of her son five years prior. She’s dealing with the aftermath of her husband’s affair, a new house and she is pregnant again. Everyone’s sitting around waiting for her to lose it, and predictably she does. Lots of crying, lots of vomiting. She’s as helpless as a newborn lamb. By the middle of this book I wanted to slap the snot out of her. She’s so passive, i kept waiting for her to get angry, but she never does. This is a really similar plot to some of Hall’s other books-rape, unsupportive husband, crazy neighbors, strange happenings, vomit, cry, rinse,repeat. Read one, don’t need to read another.

    How do you end a book like that!!! It was a good story even though Steph pissed me off some much, but I kept listening because I knew she'd be cleared but no, no, no... I'm very angry with the ending.

    I have to admit that even though I enjoy many different genres of books, I always tend to gravitate towards women's fiction and psychological thrillers. I saw Tell Me No Lies on NetGalley and after reading the summary, I submitted my request with my fingers crossed. I had heard a little bit about the author, Lisa Hall, on Goodreads because of her book Between You and Me. One of my "friends" had read it and gave it five stars. So, when I saw that I got approved for a review copy of this one I was pretty stoked. By the way, I purchased Between You and Me on Amazon right before I wrote this review.I have to tell you that I started this book shortly after I received it and finished it pretty quickly as well. The only problem was that I read it late one night after everybody else went to sleep and my menopausal insomnia chose to keep me up. Yep, you can always count on me for a little TMI! Anyway, being a slightly paranoid person anyway, ( I mean how many times can you check to see if a door is locked??) I started reading and all was good. Well about a third of the way into it, I started getting that creepy vibe and every pop and crack of the house suddenly became somebody coming to get me! Not cool! So, fyi, if you get spooked easy, read this one during the day.I really did enjoy this book. It was intense read and kept me powering through it because I was determined to finish it before I went to bed. As you read this book you might get that feeling that maybe you read it before, but you probably just watched a movie that was very much like it. I pretty much had it figured out by the last couple of chapters, but I still had to read on as you never know if the author is going to switch it up on you or not! But I have to tell you....I don't really know how I feel about the ending. I mean I'm not sure if it was so unexpected that I am just freaked out by it or if I hated it. To me it was like driving 85 down the highway and slamming on your brakes! I'm sure Lisa Hall did that on purpose and that it was her intention to leave us all going "WHAT????". At least I HOPE that was her intention.....I thought this was a great book. It had everything that a really good psychological thriller should have. Well....except that ending. But I will leave that up to you to decide for yourself. I am still on the fence about it. Great book - bizarre ending. Not gonna lie.I would like to thank the publisher and NetGalley for providing me with a copy of this book in return for my honest review. I enjoyed it and think that if the summary sounds interesting you should give it a try. It's a relatively quick read and only took a couple of hours from start to finish.

    This book dragged on for waaaay longer than it should have. And for the first time ever, I did not find myself rooting for the main character, who was clearly a dumb ass and shrieked all the time.

    I'd give a 5 star review, but unless theres a sequal the ending was horrible. Completely leaves the reader/listener hanging.

    I can’t believe I wasted 8 hours of my life listening to this book. The main character’s constant crying and over the top dramatics drove me insane and the narrator grated on my nerves. I should have just stopped listening, especially based on the terrible ending.

    Interesting ideas in the plot, but the main character seems a bit dense to not see what becomes very obvious., and makes rather dumb decisions throughout. The ending is extremely unsatisfying. It could be a really good story with some changes.

    You could tell not too far into the book who causing all the problems and the fact that she was so oblivious is a little unbelievable. The way it ends is absolutely ridiculous, The author made the victim a repeated victim.

    I consider myself to be an empathetic person. However, the heroine of this story is so incredibly dense, it is hard to have any sympathy for her. The writing is poor, the characters are unbelievable. On top of all of this is horrendous narration. Proceed at your own risk!

    I really wanted to love this. The performance was outstanding but the story was frustrating. The main character was very weak. It was difficult to listen to her whining and not taking charge of the situation, over and over again. There were many opportunities for her to do so but she just didn’t. Overall this book was a disappointment.
