A no-brainer...

The Husband's Secret by Liane Moriarty
The Husband's Secret

By: Liane Moriarty

Genre: Adult fiction

Pages: 394

Published: 2013

Audiobook: 11 CD's (13 hrs and 46 mins)

Read: April

3 out of 5

I listened to this novel on audiobook and it wasn't until the 5th disk that Cecilia "discovered" the secret that the reader should have figured out by at least disk 3.  So while the next 2 disks were entertaining, I was impatiently waiting for the secret to be "revealed".  I felt the characters had no depth and the entire book was a little too "fluffy" for me.  Although the narrator had character in her voice there was no distinctions in the dialogue which made it difficult to follow unless Ester was speaking (she has a lisp). Now for what I did like - there are so many issues and what-if's that this story definitely would lead a great discussion and I loved the epilogue, which in its own way gave the book a purpose. Overall, I felt it was watching a train wreck, but not wanting to look away. Some may call it the perfect summer read.
