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.

Great story with amazing writing

I loved this book soooooooo much. E.lockhart is a fantastic writer. I definitely recommend this book and you can get the most out of it by going in to it not knowing much about the story. The narrator was okay but some of the voices for the characters were not that amazing. Overall I really recommend this wonderful mysterious book
