The Husband's Secret Reviews
This author has the snappy inner dialogue thing down! She is witty, witty, witty! I was mesmerized with the first few chapters, kept greedily turning the pages. But then I realized that things were getting shallower and shallower instead of deeper and deeper. It was like walking into a pool expecting to swim once you hit the deep end and discovering that you're wading in the kiddie pond. All of a sudden, it was clear that I didn't genuinely like any of the characters and that everyone--everyone! ...more
Hot damn - that was a helluva ride!
The Husband's Secret reads like an episode of Desperate Housewives.
I'd like to think this is a story of ordinary people going through extraordinary circumstances. Rather, it's simply a story of ordinary people going through ordinary circumstances.
First thing's first - Liane Moriarty is a terrific writer, a gifted storyteller. She wove together a story here that essentially spoke about ordinary, every day events, but made it into a page-turning thriller of a r ...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!

Cecilia Fitzpatrick thinks she knows her husband inside out, so she's surprised to accidentally discover in the attic a dusty sealed envelope with "For my wife - to be opened only in the event of my death" written on it in his handwriting. When she casually mentions it to him on the phone, his reaction makes it clear that the last thing he wants is for her to open that envelope - but why?
Leaving us with this intriguing puzzle, the story then jumps to another woman, Tess, whose husband has fallen ...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
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
Not bad, as far as my local book club choices go. The style is certainly engaging and I kept wanting to read more and more from the first page, but it was surprisingly predictable given the popularity of the book. Decent, good for a half-drunken, wine-filled discussion (we have a classy book club).
I still think this would have been a good chance to sneak some gay porn into my book club...
