Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Absolutely! This was a great story line with a little something of every emotion for everyone.
What other book might you compare The Lies We Told to and why?
This had a little feel of Nicholas Spark's stories, in my opinion, except that the love story was more of a secondary focus while the friendship & survival events held the forefront.
What about Johanna Parker’s performance did you like?
I loved her entire performance. I can't think of anyone else who could have done a better job!
Any additional comments?
Diane Chamberlain is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. This book contained a little sample of every feeling imaginable from love, loss, lust, heartbreak, starting anew, sibling rivalry to murder. The one idea that stuck with me is the thought that we should make our lives in the sand instead of concrete so that anytime we decide to change them, it is easily possible.This book was absolutely enamoring from the storyline to the writing technique. The plot kept me hooked from the very first page and while reading you will be fervently gritting your teeth to see how everything plays out

Most of the book consists of the two sisters moaning about not revealing their guilty secrets to each other. The story is quite predictable until at least 90% or so, to the point where the reader gets anxious just to get it over with. There are a couple twists and surprises at the end, but they are essentially revealed as an aside, like 'oh, now that has happened so things are different '. The basic story concept had a lot of potential, but in my opinion, the author did not make the best use of it to keep the reader engaged.
