Allmänna fakta



Found: Mystery/Suspense/Thriller “madox” i Name that Book (september 2021)


Oh. My. Gosh. Talk about unreliable characters! Pretty much every character in Sara Shephard's new book, Nowhere Like Home, is lying. And I loved trying to figure out what was the truth.
Nowhere Like Home is told through three women's narratives - Lenna, Sarah and Rhiannon. There is a fourth woman, and her narrative is told a bit differently. Shepard did a great creating her characters. I was drawn to one in particular, and could understand the motives of another. But one is downright dangerous. As the book progressed, my opinion about what the final chapters would bring was challenged. I love not being to predict a plot.

Friendship is the driving theme in this book. What makes a good friend? How much of your life would you reveal? Some? All? And what if that trust was broken....

As readers we are privy to some (but not all) of the lies being told. The not knowing the answer as to what the truth, was kept me engrossed from first page to last. There's lots of suspense and action as well. A few plot devices were a bit overboard for me - but just go with it.

A mommune….novel approach about a commune for women and children. I can see the appeal for some, but basically not a good idea.

My daughter loved the show ‘Pretty Little Liars’ so I thought I’d give this author a try. Could have been my age vs theirs, generation gap? The premise was original, and the writing was good, but the storyline was all over the place so much so that I had a hard time focusing. It does a great job shedding light on mental health issues. Unfortunately, I couldn’t connect with any of the characters, found them immature and whiney. There are definite twists and turns I didn’t see coming, but overall it was not for me. With friends like this, who needs enemies!

Thanks to Penguin/Dutton Publishing for this ARC. This is my honest opinion.

This was really good!! I really enjoy a solid YA mystery/suspense/drama story, and "The Perfectionists" pulled me in so quickly! I NEED the next book asap!

The main characters, Julie, Parker, Mackenzie, Ava, and Caitlin, are really interesting characters, and each of them felt very well thought out and written. I love to see friendships grow between girls, and am really glad this wasn't one of those "girls are catty to each other" relationships. Also, this book passes the Bechdel Test, which is cool, and far too uncommon in YA books.

I'm only docking a star because the relationship drama (like between Caitlin and Josh, and Mack and Blake) just felt a little cheesy and predictable at times. Also, finding clues seems to be a little too Scooby-Doo easy for these girls. Just felt a tad unrealistic. Nevertheless, I'm still going to keep reading! I can't wait to see what happens!!

Friends, enemies, betrayals, and secrets is how we meet Lenna, Rhiannon, Gillian, and women in a woman’s compound that lives off the grid.

I didn’t like the thoughts of this compound from the start and wondered why Rhiannon came back into Lenna’s life and talked her into giving the remote commune a try.

Lenna left her husband early in the morning and took their baby without telingl him where she was going. Once Lenna contacted her husband Daniel, he was furious and didn’t understand why Lenna did this.

If he knew what Lenna had done before they met and never told him, he would be more furious.

We follow all the characters and try to figure out what is going on. It is a bit confusing and mysterious until the book gets going and things become clearer.

You won't be able to put the book down as things get intense and secrets are found out.

Don't give up too soon….it is a wild ending. 4/5

Thank you to the publisher for a copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
