Review 1: The Husband’s Secret audiobook by Regina
Good, but a little too much hand-wringing
Liane Moriatry would have had a real winner here if a fourth of the text were edited out. Even with the padding, I was fairly engrossed. We’ve got soap-opera family dynamics that rise above the genre thanks to original plot elements. Not great literature by any means, but for the purpose of enlivening a dull commute, this is worth a credit. I love the narrator. She can visit my ear anytime.
Review 2: The Husband’s Secret audiobook by Margaret
Escape to the land down under…
I downloaded this book because it got a great review from a reviewer I follow (thanks, Elizabeth) and I’m glad I did. I’d never heard of Liane Moriarty before, but now I’d compare her to Jennifer Crusie for her writing style and Lisa Lutz for the story. The voices of the characters are distinct and if I had to pick a favorite, there’d be trouble. All three of the female lead characters – plus Felicity – fascinated me. I felt oddly like I knew them very well and yet was constantly caught off guard by their next moves.
I have to admit that I guessed the ending. But that only increased my interest because I couldn’t be sure. This book, while not literary per se, nor a thriller exactly, hovered somewhere in between – in the genre now known as “a Moriarty.”
Caroline Lee’s performance enhanced the listen. Recommend.
Review 3: The Husband’s Secret audiobook by FanB14
Soap Opera Digest
The flower on the book was an omen foreboding me to step away. Romance novel was my gut instinct, and left it at that, until magazine after magazine touted this as one of the year’s best. I caved and spent my credit only to find I was correct.
Cousins fight over a the same man; jilted lover hooks up with old high school beau; and spoiler alert…husband has a secret! This book isn’t complete rubbish, but it’s certainly not great lit either. Reminds me of another book given the same distinction, “Life after Life” and after the second time, I wanted to kill the narrator myself.
If you’re expecting clever twists, witty dialogue, precarious situations, this is not for you.
