The Husband's Secret Reviews
What if? That's what comes to mind when I think of this novel. This book definitely wasn't what I imagined. I envisioned an entirely different plot when I read that a woman would read a note to be read only in the event of his death. Liane takes her readers on an unimaginable ride, one with a mind blowing ending. I really enjoy books like this. I like to go into a book predicting one thing and then having the author rip that story from my hands and put something even more fascinating in them. Gr ...more
Last week was a terrible time for me and my family because my dad suffered from a mild stroke/heart attack and was confined at the hospital for five days. For the first two days, he was confused and disoriented. It broke my heart to see him like that because he has always been so active and so animated despite being already 70 years of age. I got my passion for reading from him and you’ll probably won’t believe me but I did convince him to read Hunger Games, Divergent and the likes. He’s home no ...more
Eh. I doubt I would've finished this if it wasn't a book club selection. I just didn't care about any of the characters or how the story was going to end.
It's definitely not going into the stack of books I consider to be riveting. ;-) I'd throw it in the stack of stories about selfish people making selfish choices in life.
I don't agree with any of the choices made by the characters. I don't think real people would make the decisions these characters made.
I find it hard t ...more
"None of us ever know all the possible courses our lives could have, and maybe should have taken. It's probably just as well. Some secrets are meant to stay secret forever. Just ask Pandora."
This is my first book by this author and it certainly won’t be my last. I thoroughly enjoyed it and that ending packed one hell of a punch. I have read the epilogue to everyone in my family to share in my excitement sadly I guess you have to read the whole book to get the full effect.
This story is based a ...more
Some secrets are meant to stay secret forever. Just ask Pandora.
The Husband's Secret is a decent book, but I honestly expected to enjoy it a lot more than I did. I love mysteries that focus on the characters and their relationships with each other; and I love reading about morally questionable people, especially women. I find complex relationships between women to be fascinating - woven with friendship, jealousies and secrets - but I found this book superficial and, at times, even boring.
When I read the cover jacket summary, I was highly intrigued. What did this man do that he wrote a letter to his wife that should be opened upon his death... maybe I should do something like that! But wait... do I have a secret I need to reveal... yes... worth putting in a sealed letter that I can't disclose until I'm dead and buried... no... so I guess this won't be something I need to do in the future. Eh, I tried.
But reading the book is something to do! And it did not disappoint. It has many ...more
Discovering Liane Moriarty's novels has made me giddy. This is only the second book of hers I've read, and it was delightful.
I laughed. I got misty-eyed. I pondered our shared humanity and the moral messiness of modern life. What else could you ask for in a contemporary novel?
I can't wait to dive into the rest of Liane's books!

PERFECT SUMMER READ. Full disclosure: I listened to this as an audiobook. Normally I save my audiobooks for cleaning house, but this was so good I took it on runs, slowed down my walks to work, even listened for a few minutes as I got my coffee, ignoring my coworkers. The reader's Australian accent made the story come alive, but I bet it's just as spellbinding in print. Two husbands in this book have secrets: one predictable, quickly revealed; the other unexpected and drawn out. Each time I thou ...more
