Sometimes I Lie is my newest favorite of the year. There are so many twists and turns in this novel that my head was left spinning. This is one of those books that when you finish you wonder if you got it right because everything is (I’m sure) carefully planned to make the reader work at it. This is Alice Feeney’s first novel and I am quite sure she will have quite a following after this one is read.
I will only give you the bare bones of the story; otherwise I would have to preface everything with *Spoiler Alert*.
The first page of the book says this:
My name is Amber Reynolds. There are three things you should know about me:
- I’m in a coma.
- My husband doesn’t love me anymore.
- Sometimes I lie.
This is how we meet Amber Reynolds. And then we are brought into the “Now” of her situation as well as the “Then” of her situation. And her situation is something else!!!
