It s hard for me to enjoy a book when I dislike every character didn t care what happened to any of them The main character was despicable He was a womanizer, a liar, and a lazy conceited man with an inflated sense of self The other characters weren t much better The plot became interesting near the end of the book, but not interesting enough to recommend anyone read it. I really enjoyed this book While the protagonist was not a likeable person, he was credible I don t think it really mattered whether the story was plausible or not it was such a rollicking good read, that it sucked me in I thought the story line was quite inventive and interesting there was always something happening I like the author s style of writing. One word I use to describe this book is disappointing I love the other two books I read by this author, but this one left me feeling short changed It was very redundant with a slight twist at the end to a horrible character I would recommend skipping this one. This book is very different from most that I read but very good and thought provoking The main character and narrator is very flawed and aware of it giving little thought to consequences to others By the end he reaches the conclusion that little, thoughtless cruelties can alter someone else s life. It starts with a lie The kind we ve all told to a former acquaintance we can t quite place but still, for some reason, feel the need to impress The story of our life, embellished for the benefit of the happily married lawyer with the kids and the lovely home And the next thing you know, you re having dinner at their house, and accepting an invitation to join them on holiday swept up in their perfect life, the kind you always dreamed of Which turns out to be less than perfect But by the time you re trapped and sweating in the relentless Greek sun, burning to escape the tension all around you by the time you start to realize that, however painful the truth might be, it s the lies that cause the real damage well, by then, it could just be too late.My Thoughts Lie With Me the gripping bestseller and suspense read of the yearis a gripping tale narrated in the first person voice of Paul Morris, a writer, whose life is not turning out the way he had hoped When he runs into an old Cambridge University friend, Andrew Hopkins, he is less than thrilled There is something about Andrew that always makes him feel less than But he can t show any of this, so he accepts an invitation to dinner.The lies come tripping off his tongue when Andrew, and then the other guests, ask questions about his work, his life, etc Little white lies, of course But the closer he gets to them all, including an attractive woman named Alice Mackenzie, with whom he quickly becomes involved, he finds himself caught up in a web of lies.The invitation to a Greek holiday comes later, but by then, the story of his life is caught in the trap he has created.In Greece, nothing is the way he had hoped, and soon the chaos of the friends and their families, their expectations, and Alice s quest to find a young girl who disappeared ten years before all of it becomes a disaster in the making Andrew s behavior is strange, and so is Alice s Are the two of them involved Are they keeping secrets Why are odd things happening around the house, where a renovation is taking place My thoughts about the characters were negative, overall Alice was evasive, sneaky, and she and Andrew always seemed to be huddled somewhere, whispering I didn t trust either of them, even though Paul had not been truthful about a lot of things The teens, as usual, were also creating havoc.Before the story comes to a crashing conclusion, we realize that nothing is as it seems, and Paul is in a lot of trouble By the time Paul discovers the truth, it is too late for him Unless someone can extricate him from the mess created not just by his lies but by the secrecy and manipulation of others The ending left us hanging but hopeful 4.5 stars.
