Liane Moriarty has the incredible ability to describe the minds of people to the point, authentic and in a way that is a pleasure to read. I felt most connected to Frances, not least because I completely agree with her that I can give up wine and talking and maybe also sweets, but I definitely cannot give up reading a book for a few days that are supposed to be like a holiday. But Frances also feels like a more major character than most of the others, probably because we get to know her quite good and she also observes for us some of the other guests at Tranquillum House. When the story came to the lock-in it was probably supposed to get suspenseful. For me the opposite happened, I found the first part, where we met all the different characters and heard their stories, a lot more interesting than how these strangers interact in a serious situation. The epilogue, where we learn where everybody is at a week, a month, a year... after those days at Tranquillum House, was very informative and a perfect round-up to the story.

One house. Nine strangers. Ten days that will change everything . . .
FROM THE WORLDWIDE #1 BESTSELLING AUTHOR BEHIND EMMY- AND GOLDEN GLOBE-WINNING HBO SERIES BIG LITTLE LIES AND SMASH-HIT NOVEL THE HUSBAND'S SECRET
The retreat at health-and-wellness resort Tranquillum House promises total transformation.
Nine stressed city dwellers are keen to drop their literal and mental baggage, and absorb the meditative ambience while enjoying their hot stone massages.
Miles from anywhere, without cars or phones, they have no way to reach the outside world. Just time to think about themselves, and get to know each other.
Watching over them is the resort's director, a woman on a mission. But quite a different one from any the guests might have imagined.
For behind the retreat's glamorous facade lies a dark agenda.
These nine perfect strangers have no idea what's about to hit them . . .
