    4 Stars. One Heck of a Nail-Biter! Susanna is an overprotective mother to 14 year old Emily. More than anything Emily just wants a little freedom. Yet, all they have is each other. Susanna however, has her reasons for keeping tabs on her daughter - Emily just doesn?t know what ...

    4.5* Wow! Suspense on steroids! Susanna has managed to rebuild her life. She?s a counselor now, raising her 14 year old daughter Emily, on her own. She has finally left her past...far, far behind. At least that?s sure what she believed. That?s precisely the moment a new cl...

    I loved, loved, LOVED IT. I was as trapped in the story as Susanna was in her Consultantancy room with Adam. I didn?t even want to get out unlike her! I read The House by this author and loved it. I?ve now read this and am going to follow him on social media so I won?t mis...

    I started reading The Liar?s Room on 11/4/2018 and finished it on 11/21/2018. This book is an interesting read. I like the different ways the story is told. I enjoy reading Emily?s diary. From Susanna?s perspective, I like the reminders about the consequences to teens when they g...

    I really REALLY enjoyed ?The House? by Simon Lelic last year so was a right eager beaver when I got hold of a copy of ?The Liars Room? and if I really enjoyed ?The House? it has to be said that I LOVED this. The Liars Room is a considered, intelligent and claustrophobic ...

    This is the 2nd book I have read by author Simon Lelic having already enjoyed the very good 'The House'. This is a page turning thriller that is predominantly set in one room, the consulting room. Consultant Susanna and Adam are trapped together in the room trying to outsmart each oth...

    3.5 stars I like Simon Lelic's creativity in how he chooses to tell his stories. They're a bit different, tension-filled, and definitely page-turners. I might have had a few problems with the story but overall it was a good read. Susanna Fenton wanted to move on from her past and...

    3.5 stars Well this was quite an intense book! It follows this woman named Susanna who is a psychologist and she?s taking on a new patient named Adam and the entire story mostly takes place in one day. There were two good plot twists that I didn?t see coming, some of the ending...

    Simon Lelic has somehow managed to top last years brilliant ?The House? with an even better psychological thriller, I couldn?t put this powerfully tense thriller down. The main story takes place over the course of five hours with just two people mainly in one room. Susanna ha...

    "The Liar's Room" is the follow-up to Simon Lelic's fantastic debut entitled "The House". Again, Lelic has taken a unique concept and setting and created a truly chilling read. How fortunate as that happens to be my favourite type of thriller - disturbing and claustrophobic in nature. ...

    Susanna's new patient, Adam, starts to ask her questions during his therapy session. Questions that indicate he knows the secrets in her past and what she has been running from for years. As the questions continue, Susanna's world starts to unravel. This story unfolds during the cou...

    ONE ROOM. TWO LIARS. NO WAY OUT Misconceptions - This is a twisty,gripping story about misconceptions,secrets,lies,redemption and forgiveness.There is a hell of a lot more to this book than the synopsis leads you to believe.Yes,the main story is Susanna and Adam`s intense batt...

    "No matter how hard you try to escape it, the past has a way of catching up". A compelling thriller that sees Susanna, a therapist, take on a new teenage client. It soon becomes apparent, however, that Adam knows her, knows all her dark secrets, things she's been running from for year...

    Ahhh, Simon Lelic is a master! Managing to take a simplistic idea of a patient & counselor alone in a room and turn it into one complicated dynamic that leaves you breathless when it all unfolds. I?ve said it before & I?ll say it again, I highly recommend all of SL books. T...

    Susanna is a therapist and she has an appointment with a new client, Adam, on a Friday afternoon. Almost immediately Adam confesses that he's there because he would very much like to hurt a particular teenage girl. Susanna soon realizes the girl is her daughter but she cannot fathom wh...

    Twisted story of manipulation. Good one! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ This book was so different from what I was expecting and much different from what I have read before this one. I unfortunately started reading it right before I got sick. For several days I couldn?t pick it up but for ve...

    Most other reviewers loved The Liar's Room, but I'm afraid I really didn't. Although Simon Lelic can write very well, I found this unconvincing and a little formulaic, in spite of its rather original structure. A new client arrives in a counsellor's office and quite quickly it emerg...

    This is one of those books where you have to hang onto your seat and follow the ride wherever it takes you, and oh my goodness what a ride it is! Susanna is a counsellor and on the day we meet her she has two new clients to meet. When the first one, Adam Geraghty walks through the d...

    I am setting up the stage for the scene as I imagined it. Susanna as the counselor waiting for her patient and in comes Adam! They get to talking and Adam hints at wanting to hurt a woman and it turns out to her daughter Emily. The story takes a turn when Adam wants to talk abo...

    I really enjoyed Simon Lelic?s other book The House, so when I saw The Liars room I had to request it. Thankyou Netgalley and Penguin for a copy of this book. Susanna has a new life as a Counsellor and she has an appointment with a new client Adam. Adam is young and he starts the se...

    I really REALLY enjoyed ?The House? by Simon Lelic last year so was a right eager beaver when I got hold of a copy of ?The Liars Room? and if I really enjoyed ?The House? it has to be said that I LOVED this. The Liars Room is a considered, intelligent and claustrophobic ...

    This is the 2nd book I have read by author Simon Lelic having already enjoyed the very good 'The House'. This is a page turning thriller that is predominantly set in one room, the consulting room. Consultant Susanna and Adam are trapped together in the room trying to outsmart each oth...

    3.5 stars I like Simon Lelic's creativity in how he chooses to tell his stories. They're a bit different, tension-filled, and definitely page-turners. I might have had a few problems with the story but overall it was a good read. Susanna Fenton wanted to move on from her past and...

    3.5 stars Well this was quite an intense book! It follows this woman named Susanna who is a psychologist and she?s taking on a new patient named Adam and the entire story mostly takes place in one day. There were two good plot twists that I didn?t see coming, some of the ending...

    "The Liar's Room" is the follow-up to Simon Lelic's fantastic debut entitled "The House". Again, Lelic has taken a unique concept and setting and created a truly chilling read. How fortunate as that happens to be my favourite type of thriller - disturbing and claustrophobic in nature. ...

    Susanna's new patient, Adam, starts to ask her questions during his therapy session. Questions that indicate he knows the secrets in her past and what she has been running from for years. As the questions continue, Susanna's world starts to unravel. This story unfolds during the cou...

    ONE ROOM. TWO LIARS. NO WAY OUT Misconceptions - This is a twisty,gripping story about misconceptions,secrets,lies,redemption and forgiveness.There is a hell of a lot more to this book than the synopsis leads you to believe.Yes,the main story is Susanna and Adam`s intense batt...

    "No matter how hard you try to escape it, the past has a way of catching up". A compelling thriller that sees Susanna, a therapist, take on a new teenage client. It soon becomes apparent, however, that Adam knows her, knows all her dark secrets, things she's been running from for year...

    Ahhh, Simon Lelic is a master! Managing to take a simplistic idea of a patient & counselor alone in a room and turn it into one complicated dynamic that leaves you breathless when it all unfolds. I?ve said it before & I?ll say it again, I highly recommend all of SL books. T...

    Most other reviewers loved The Liar's Room, but I'm afraid I really didn't. Although Simon Lelic can write very well, I found this unconvincing and a little formulaic, in spite of its rather original structure. A new client arrives in a counsellor's office and quite quickly it emerg...

    This is one of those books where you have to hang onto your seat and follow the ride wherever it takes you, and oh my goodness what a ride it is! Susanna is a counsellor and on the day we meet her she has two new clients to meet. When the first one, Adam Geraghty walks through the d...

    Book reviews on www.snazzybooks.com. The bar was set very high by Simon Lelic's first novel, The House [read my review here], and I'm very happy to report that The Liar's Room, though a fairly different read, is just as gripping! This story centers around one location really, in ...

    ***Thanks to First to Read for providing me a complimentary of THE LIAR?S ROOM by Simon Lelic in exchange for my honest review.*** This is how you write a thriller. THE LIAR?S ROOM starts off when counselor Susanna encounters Adam, a new, yet familiar client. But Adam made t...

    Unconvincing. Others seem to love it, but they?re wrong & I?m right. ...

    This is a book that I was really looking forward to reading. It is right up my reading genre. The beginning started out fine. To be honest, Susanna is a person that I would have brushed off as unmemorable if it was not for her past. Adam was the stronger voice in the story. In rega...

    The Liar?s Room on paper should work in every detail but for me it lacks a sense of reality to the proceedings on the page. The premise is exciting and well put together but when it comes to its tense conclusion, it seems a little out of sorts with the overall narrative. The chara...

    Due to a past tragedy Susanna has moved away from home and successfully rebuilt her life with a new identity. She has a fourteen-year-old daughter, Emily, and now works as a counsellor. When new client Adam walks into her consulting room, her world is about to come spectacularly crashi...

    "The Liar's Room" is the follow-up to Simon Lelic's fantastic debut entitled "The House". Again, Lelic has taken a unique concept and setting and created a truly chilling read. How fortunate as that happens to be my favourite type of thriller - disturbing and claustrophobic in nature. ...

    Ahhh, Simon Lelic is a master! Managing to take a simplistic idea of a patient & counselor alone in a room and turn it into one complicated dynamic that leaves you breathless when it all unfolds. I?ve said it before & I?ll say it again, I highly recommend all of SL books. T...

    This is one of those books where you have to hang onto your seat and follow the ride wherever it takes you, and oh my goodness what a ride it is! Susanna is a counsellor and on the day we meet her she has two new clients to meet. When the first one, Adam Geraghty walks through the d...

    ***Thanks to First to Read for providing me a complimentary of THE LIAR?S ROOM by Simon Lelic in exchange for my honest review.*** This is how you write a thriller. THE LIAR?S ROOM starts off when counselor Susanna encounters Adam, a new, yet familiar client. But Adam made t...

    Unconvincing. Others seem to love it, but they?re wrong & I?m right. ...

    This is a book that I was really looking forward to reading. It is right up my reading genre. The beginning started out fine. To be honest, Susanna is a person that I would have brushed off as unmemorable if it was not for her past. Adam was the stronger voice in the story. In rega...

    The Liar?s Room on paper should work in every detail but for me it lacks a sense of reality to the proceedings on the page. The premise is exciting and well put together but when it comes to its tense conclusion, it seems a little out of sorts with the overall narrative. The chara...

    Due to a past tragedy Susanna has moved away from home and successfully rebuilt her life with a new identity. She has a fourteen-year-old daughter, Emily, and now works as a counsellor. When new client Adam walks into her consulting room, her world is about to come spectacularly crashi...

    The concept of this book is intriguing: two people are ?stuck? inside a room until the truth comes out. It reads much like the basis for the plot of the horror movie series ?Saw? or how it would be to be stuck in a nightmarish panic room. But in the case of ?The Liar?s Ro...

    Ahhh, Simon Lelic is a master! Managing to take a simplistic idea of a patient & counselor alone in a room and turn it into one complicated dynamic that leaves you breathless when it all unfolds. I?ve said it before & I?ll say it again, I highly recommend all of SL books. T...

    Susanna is a therapist and she has an appointment with a new client, Adam, on a Friday afternoon. Almost immediately Adam confesses that he's there because he would very much like to hurt a particular teenage girl. Susanna soon realizes the girl is her daughter but she cannot fathom wh...

    Twisted story of manipulation. Good one! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ This book was so different from what I was expecting and much different from what I have read before this one. I unfortunately started reading it right before I got sick. For several days I couldn?t pick it up but for ve...

    Most other reviewers loved The Liar's Room, but I'm afraid I really didn't. Although Simon Lelic can write very well, I found this unconvincing and a little formulaic, in spite of its rather original structure. A new client arrives in a counsellor's office and quite quickly it emerg...

    This is one of those books where you have to hang onto your seat and follow the ride wherever it takes you, and oh my goodness what a ride it is! Susanna is a counsellor and on the day we meet her she has two new clients to meet. When the first one, Adam Geraghty walks through the d...

    I am setting up the stage for the scene as I imagined it. Susanna as the counselor waiting for her patient and in comes Adam! They get to talking and Adam hints at wanting to hurt a woman and it turns out to her daughter Emily. The story takes a turn when Adam wants to talk abo...

    I really enjoyed Simon Lelic?s other book The House, so when I saw The Liars room I had to request it. Thankyou Netgalley and Penguin for a copy of this book. Susanna has a new life as a Counsellor and she has an appointment with a new client Adam. Adam is young and he starts the se...

    Fist of all: TRIGGER WARNING FOR ANIMAL CRUELTY!! ***There's a very long, graphic, excruciatingly described scene of animal cruelty that shook me to the core. In my opinion I can see how the author thought it was necessary to make us understand parts of a character's personality but i...

    I read The House by this author and I?ve got to say I had high expectations. I?m glad to say the author reached my high expectations and more as I really enjoyed this story. The plot of this is so good. It?s well thought out and executed. Each chapter was like another part of ...

    Book reviews on www.snazzybooks.com. The bar was set very high by Simon Lelic's first novel, The House [read my review here], and I'm very happy to report that The Liar's Room, though a fairly different read, is just as gripping! This story centers around one location really, in ...

    ***Thanks to First to Read for providing me a complimentary of THE LIAR?S ROOM by Simon Lelic in exchange for my honest review.*** This is how you write a thriller. THE LIAR?S ROOM starts off when counselor Susanna encounters Adam, a new, yet familiar client. But Adam made t...

    Unconvincing. Others seem to love it, but they?re wrong & I?m right. ...

    This is a book that I was really looking forward to reading. It is right up my reading genre. The beginning started out fine. To be honest, Susanna is a person that I would have brushed off as unmemorable if it was not for her past. Adam was the stronger voice in the story. In rega...

    The Liar?s Room on paper should work in every detail but for me it lacks a sense of reality to the proceedings on the page. The premise is exciting and well put together but when it comes to its tense conclusion, it seems a little out of sorts with the overall narrative. The chara...

    Due to a past tragedy Susanna has moved away from home and successfully rebuilt her life with a new identity. She has a fourteen-year-old daughter, Emily, and now works as a counsellor. When new client Adam walks into her consulting room, her world is about to come spectacularly crashi...

    The concept of this book is intriguing: two people are ?stuck? inside a room until the truth comes out. It reads much like the basis for the plot of the horror movie series ?Saw? or how it would be to be stuck in a nightmarish panic room. But in the case of ?The Liar?s Ro...

    I loved this book. I absolutely loved The House, and I actually think I love this book just as much (maybe even more!). Predominantly set in one room, this book is the definition of claustrophobic. It?s definitely a thrilling page turner. Simon Lelic?s writing is incredibly immersi...

    I really REALLY enjoyed ?The House? by Simon Lelic last year so was a right eager beaver when I got hold of a copy of ?The Liars Room? and if I really enjoyed ?The House? it has to be said that I LOVED this. The Liars Room is a considered, intelligent and claustrophobic ...

    This is the 2nd book I have read by author Simon Lelic having already enjoyed the very good 'The House'. This is a page turning thriller that is predominantly set in one room, the consulting room. Consultant Susanna and Adam are trapped together in the room trying to outsmart each oth...

    3.5 stars I like Simon Lelic's creativity in how he chooses to tell his stories. They're a bit different, tension-filled, and definitely page-turners. I might have had a few problems with the story but overall it was a good read. Susanna Fenton wanted to move on from her past and...

    3.5 stars Well this was quite an intense book! It follows this woman named Susanna who is a psychologist and she?s taking on a new patient named Adam and the entire story mostly takes place in one day. There were two good plot twists that I didn?t see coming, some of the ending...

    Simon Lelic has somehow managed to top last years brilliant ?The House? with an even better psychological thriller, I couldn?t put this powerfully tense thriller down. The main story takes place over the course of five hours with just two people mainly in one room. Susanna ha...

    "The Liar's Room" is the follow-up to Simon Lelic's fantastic debut entitled "The House". Again, Lelic has taken a unique concept and setting and created a truly chilling read. How fortunate as that happens to be my favourite type of thriller - disturbing and claustrophobic in nature. ...

    Susanna's new patient, Adam, starts to ask her questions during his therapy session. Questions that indicate he knows the secrets in her past and what she has been running from for years. As the questions continue, Susanna's world starts to unravel. This story unfolds during the cou...

    ONE ROOM. TWO LIARS. NO WAY OUT Misconceptions - This is a twisty,gripping story about misconceptions,secrets,lies,redemption and forgiveness.There is a hell of a lot more to this book than the synopsis leads you to believe.Yes,the main story is Susanna and Adam`s intense batt...

    "No matter how hard you try to escape it, the past has a way of catching up". A compelling thriller that sees Susanna, a therapist, take on a new teenage client. It soon becomes apparent, however, that Adam knows her, knows all her dark secrets, things she's been running from for year...

    Ahhh, Simon Lelic is a master! Managing to take a simplistic idea of a patient & counselor alone in a room and turn it into one complicated dynamic that leaves you breathless when it all unfolds. I?ve said it before & I?ll say it again, I highly recommend all of SL books. T...

    Susanna is a therapist and she has an appointment with a new client, Adam, on a Friday afternoon. Almost immediately Adam confesses that he's there because he would very much like to hurt a particular teenage girl. Susanna soon realizes the girl is her daughter but she cannot fathom wh...

    Twisted story of manipulation. Good one! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ This book was so different from what I was expecting and much different from what I have read before this one. I unfortunately started reading it right before I got sick. For several days I couldn?t pick it up but for ve...

    Most other reviewers loved The Liar's Room, but I'm afraid I really didn't. Although Simon Lelic can write very well, I found this unconvincing and a little formulaic, in spite of its rather original structure. A new client arrives in a counsellor's office and quite quickly it emerg...

    This is one of those books where you have to hang onto your seat and follow the ride wherever it takes you, and oh my goodness what a ride it is! Susanna is a counsellor and on the day we meet her she has two new clients to meet. When the first one, Adam Geraghty walks through the d...

    I am setting up the stage for the scene as I imagined it. Susanna as the counselor waiting for her patient and in comes Adam! They get to talking and Adam hints at wanting to hurt a woman and it turns out to her daughter Emily. The story takes a turn when Adam wants to talk abo...

    I really enjoyed Simon Lelic?s other book The House, so when I saw The Liars room I had to request it. Thankyou Netgalley and Penguin for a copy of this book. Susanna has a new life as a Counsellor and she has an appointment with a new client Adam. Adam is young and he starts the se...

    Fist of all: TRIGGER WARNING FOR ANIMAL CRUELTY!! ***There's a very long, graphic, excruciatingly described scene of animal cruelty that shook me to the core. In my opinion I can see how the author thought it was necessary to make us understand parts of a character's personality but i...

    I read The House by this author and I?ve got to say I had high expectations. I?m glad to say the author reached my high expectations and more as I really enjoyed this story. The plot of this is so good. It?s well thought out and executed. Each chapter was like another part of ...

    Book reviews on www.snazzybooks.com. The bar was set very high by Simon Lelic's first novel, The House [read my review here], and I'm very happy to report that The Liar's Room, though a fairly different read, is just as gripping! This story centers around one location really, in ...

    ***Thanks to First to Read for providing me a complimentary of THE LIAR?S ROOM by Simon Lelic in exchange for my honest review.*** This is how you write a thriller. THE LIAR?S ROOM starts off when counselor Susanna encounters Adam, a new, yet familiar client. But Adam made t...
