    One thought on “The Lying Game”

    1. One and a half stars.The premise of this book initially sounded interesting as it introduces the reader to two mothers, Harriet and Zoey, and two daughters, Florence and Nell. Harriet is married to Oliver. Zoey is in a long time relationship with Richard. Each of the daughters is fifteen when they one of the mothers discovers after the need for a blood transfusion that the child she has raised could not be her biological child. I was interested enough for a while, but as the story progressed som [...]

    2. I was so disappointed with this book. I’ve been looking for good multi-narrator novels, and Tess Stimson handles multi-narrator tales quite well. The book started off very well, expertly paced, with well-detailed, believable characters. I enjoyed the story, about two babies switched accidentally in a London hospital, and the choices to be made when the families (one still in London, one now living in the US) discover the truth fifteen years later. Up to the reunion and the layers of complicati [...]

    3. This book started really well and I was drawn into the plot of the baby mix up at birth. However I thought that Zoey and Nell going to visit America was the turning point and the book just went completely downhill from there. (view spoiler)[ All the adult characters became ridiculous caricatures of themselves. Harriet in particular was hateful and selfish. Zoey went from being free spirited and turning down Richards proposal again to being completely pathetic and needy. Oliver went from charming [...]

    4. Don't really know what to say about this book. I thought I was getting immersed in a story about how 2 mother have to deal 15 years later with an error committed by the hospital where their daughters were switched at birth. I expected morale conflict, family decisions, etc. And although you get some of this in "The Lying Game" you also get a good number of (very explicit) sexual scenes that don't really go with the story. I mean, why are these scenes described to the detail? There isn't really a [...]

    5. I love reading this book so much. It had a purpose behind the story that was in it. The purpose was how a small mistake can leads to a big one, and how one lie can cause a huge problem that can not be solved. It teaches a person how to be honest and say the truth no matter what. The theme behind this book was traditional and familiar because most fiction books now a day share the same theme but few authors can actually make the story interesting. All the events that happened in the story was int [...]

    6. Harriet Lockwood loves her daughter Florence, but has never bonded with her, though she bonded instantly with her three sons from birth. Harriet never got along with Florence, and one day she claims to realize why. After an accident occurs, Harriet gets a DNA test done against Florence. It comes back stating that Florence is not the biological child of Harriet and Oliver's.Harriet now knows why she never bonded with Florence, she did not give birth to her and there is no natural connection there [...]

    7. It all started great. I was intrigued and couldn't stop listening (audiobook) - it made my work hours rush by. Then as it progressed, the adult characters suddenly changed a lot and became very childish, or at least, very out of their starting characters. I didn't particularly like them when they were like that and the focus was completely taken from the children, whom the book should probably concentrate more on.The worst part was probably killing Zoey, I mean come on, what an easy thing to do. [...]

    8. An enjoyable read. I liked the characters and thought the plot inventive but I felt the ending a little rushed.

    9. I do love a Tess Stimson book. She has the right amount of emotional impact, with some deceit and raw sex thrown in. I can't imagine being placed in Harriet or Zoey's place. What do you do when you find out your child is not your own? I hated Harriet's bullheadedness in impulsively going ahead with her own agenda with no regard of the feelings of her husband, either girls or the rest of her family. Because of the rather distant relationship she had with her daughter, she thought that was the rea [...]

    10. Dvě ženy, dvě dívky a dvě odlišné rodiny, které dělí oceán. Aniž by měl kdokoliv tušení, že jsou propojeni víc, než je běžné. A pak jedna nehoda rozpoutá kolotoč pochybností, strachu, doufání, naděje a touhy po novém startu. Někteří by ale raději zapomněli a vrátili se zpět. Jak se všichni vypořádají s pravdou a chybou, která se stala před patnácti lety?Autorka Tess Stimson píše knihy, které jsou opravdu ze života. Hra na lež se dotýká tématu, o [...]

    11. Thoroughly enjoyed this! I couldn’t put it down. Great plot, choices are made which result in devastating consequences. Intense, well paced with twists and turns. Good feel factor too. It was a tad too rushed towards the end, I wanted more, especially around the impact of the compensation on both families. Don’t want to say too much. Other than a thoroughly good read.What will be, will be, depending on the decisions you make when you don’t take into consideration the consequences of your a [...]

    12. First, the book was quite well written. It loses stars because I think there's a huge leap the author makes so that things could resolve "well" at the end. It just didn't seem right. The characters are (by design) flawed but loveable. I did feel that the girls' feelings were downplayed and deserved more page time. Eh. It was okay. The author clearly has talent but I don't think the proposed story was handled as well as it could have been.

    13. Jako u jiných knih Tess Stimson, i tady máte pocit nevěrohodných zvratů v charakterech postav a tím pádem i v ději. Ale iritovalo mě to míň než u Manželky, která utekla, příjemně se to četlo, splivla jsem za den - jen ta představa záměny jako taková vážně zamrazí, sama jsem už na porodním sále hledala specifická poznávací znamení, abych si pak mohla být úplně jistá :)

    14. Tess píše skvěle, o tom žádná. Je to moje druhá kniha od ní a opět nezklamala. Knihu jsem si na sto procent užila, ten námět je prostě boží. Trochu mě sice vytočil konec, ale budiž. Nebýt něho, tak bych snad dala i plný počet.

    15. Not the normal type of book I go for but was interesting, one thing i don't like is how chapters are different characters i always find my self wanting to skip to the characters i like most.

    16. Loved it! Another book I just couldn't put down. Surprised by the twist towards the end. Really wasn't expecting it.

    17. quite a nice story, i enjoyed that it was written from different characters' points of viewsit ended sadly though

    18. A good book, confusing at times with every chapter being from a different characters perspective, a few errors though.
