The end makes this book worth a listen.
We Were Liars is an interesting story and the narrator's voice works well.
I was confused with the first third of the book, as I never connected enough with the characters individually, they all just became part of the backdrop. I don't think I even new the main character well.
Whether or not this was purposeful with an unreliable protagonist I don't know, because at the end I was able to understand the distance between myself, the protagonist and the other characters. However, I think this could have been achieved even if I had cared about the characters more.
Still, it was a good listen, even though I nearly abandoned it many times, I'm glad I didn't.

what a bore
What would have made We Were Liars better?
cutting 5 of the 6 and 1/2 hours
What was most disappointing about E. Lockhart’s story?
nothing really happened until the last 30 minutes
this is an excellent example of pointless narration about scenes that make no difference to the story whatsoever. Whoever did the editing on this needs to read the dictionary definition of what an editor should do.
Did Ariadne Meyers do a good job differentiating each of the characters? How?
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from We Were Liars?
every one except the first and last, then it would have been great!
Any additional comments?
I think you get the idea!
