    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 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...

    "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. ...

    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...

    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...

    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 ...

    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 ...

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

    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...

    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 was provided with a free digital copy of this book pre-publication in exchange for an honest review. What a superb, chiller-thriller. The story centres around Susannah a counsellor meeting a new client Adam. Adam confesses he is having dark thoughts about hurting a girl he likes a...

    Brilliantly crafted. The plot just keeps on unfolding new secrets and twists, just when you think you have it sussed you have to rethink. Loved it from start to finish, and going back for another go just in case I missed something! One of the best books of the year for me ...

    Susanna is a counsellor, well she is now! But she has a past that she is trying to hide from her friends, her daughter and also herself. Adam comes to Susanna as a patient, he has never visited her before but something about him is unsettling. This is a book that took me a while to ...

    The two main characters in this haunting psychological thriller are Susanna Fenton and Adam Geraghty. They meet for the first time when Adam walks into Susanna?s office. He is a very troubled teenager seeking help. Or so he says. He has researched well and Susanna is the only counsel...

    Therapist Susannah has carefully concocted a stress-free life. She and daughter Emily live in a 3 bedroom house and get on well, as much as any mother with a 14-year-old daughter. She shares a building for work with friend Ruth, who is a dentist. That way Susannah is never in the bu...

    Simon Lelic is a relatively new author to me but as I thoroughly enjoyed The House, his previous novel when I read it last year, I was excited to read this one, particularly when I read that thrilling synopsis. I adore a good thriller as I've mentioned in previous posts and I don't thi...

    What a thriller! Thank you NetGalley for providing me with a tense and thrilling read, which had me fraught with tension and desperate to work out just how all the pieces we were being shown pulled together. Susannah is a counsellor, and loving mother to her child Emily. We know she ...

    Couldn't put this book down! I'm not normally a fan of books with lots of dialogue but it worked really well for building the tension here, especially given that so much of the book centres on the one room. There is a claustrophobic feel throughout and we already know from the blurb th...

    With thanks to the publishers and Netgalley for the book in exchange for an honest review. You could also read this book with Pigeonhole, just reading a stave a day for 10 days which gives a different slant to the book, when you wonder what is happening and why until the last stave. ...

    This is a thriller that takes place mostly in just one room, and I think this adds to the suspense brilliantly. It's a story of love, lies and secrets which twists and turns to the end. I gave up trying to work out what was what and who was who and just sat back and enjoyed the story. ...

    I read this with Pigeonhole, a stave at a time over 10 days. I must say that the end of each stave left me wanting to read more. The main characters, Susanna and Adam, are in a counsellor?s meeting but both of them have hidden secrets. There are lots of twists in the story, as you ar...

    The Liar's Room was a very well written story told from many differing points of view.The main characters were interesting and the story line very slowly revealed long held secrets with plenty of twists along the way that built tension throughout the story.. Definitely worth a read. ...

    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 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...

    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 ...

    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 ...

    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. ...

    "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...

    What a thriller! Thank you NetGalley for providing me with a tense and thrilling read, which had me fraught with tension and desperate to work out just how all the pieces we were being shown pulled together. Susannah is a counsellor, and loving mother to her child Emily. We know she ...

    Couldn't put this book down! I'm not normally a fan of books with lots of dialogue but it worked really well for building the tension here, especially given that so much of the book centres on the one room. There is a claustrophobic feel throughout and we already know from the blurb th...

    With thanks to the publishers and Netgalley for the book in exchange for an honest review. You could also read this book with Pigeonhole, just reading a stave a day for 10 days which gives a different slant to the book, when you wonder what is happening and why until the last stave. ...

    This is a thriller that takes place mostly in just one room, and I think this adds to the suspense brilliantly. It's a story of love, lies and secrets which twists and turns to the end. I gave up trying to work out what was what and who was who and just sat back and enjoyed the story. ...

    Therapist Susannah has carefully concocted a stress-free life. She and daughter Emily live in a 3 bedroom house and get on well, as much as any mother with a 14-year-old daughter. She shares a building for work with friend Ruth, who is a dentist. That way Susannah is never in the bu...

    Simon Lelic is a relatively new author to me but as I thoroughly enjoyed The House, his previous novel when I read it last year, I was excited to read this one, particularly when I read that thrilling synopsis. I adore a good thriller as I've mentioned in previous posts and I don't thi...

    What a thriller! Thank you NetGalley for providing me with a tense and thrilling read, which had me fraught with tension and desperate to work out just how all the pieces we were being shown pulled together. Susannah is a counsellor, and loving mother to her child Emily. We know she ...

    Couldn't put this book down! I'm not normally a fan of books with lots of dialogue but it worked really well for building the tension here, especially given that so much of the book centres on the one room. There is a claustrophobic feel throughout and we already know from the blurb th...

    With thanks to the publishers and Netgalley for the book in exchange for an honest review. You could also read this book with Pigeonhole, just reading a stave a day for 10 days which gives a different slant to the book, when you wonder what is happening and why until the last stave. ...

    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 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...

    "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. ...

    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...

    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 ...

    Brilliantly crafted. The plot just keeps on unfolding new secrets and twists, just when you think you have it sussed you have to rethink. Loved it from start to finish, and going back for another go just in case I missed something! One of the best books of the year for me ...

    Susanna is a counsellor, well she is now! But she has a past that she is trying to hide from her friends, her daughter and also herself. Adam comes to Susanna as a patient, he has never visited her before but something about him is unsettling. This is a book that took me a while to ...

    Therapist Susannah has carefully concocted a stress-free life. She and daughter Emily live in a 3 bedroom house and get on well, as much as any mother with a 14-year-old daughter. She shares a building for work with friend Ruth, who is a dentist. That way Susannah is never in the bu...

    What a thriller! Thank you NetGalley for providing me with a tense and thrilling read, which had me fraught with tension and desperate to work out just how all the pieces we were being shown pulled together. Susannah is a counsellor, and loving mother to her child Emily. We know she ...

    With thanks to the publishers and Netgalley for the book in exchange for an honest review. You could also read this book with Pigeonhole, just reading a stave a day for 10 days which gives a different slant to the book, when you wonder what is happening and why until the last stave. ...

    This is a thriller that takes place mostly in just one room, and I think this adds to the suspense brilliantly. It's a story of love, lies and secrets which twists and turns to the end. I gave up trying to work out what was what and who was who and just sat back and enjoyed the story. ...

    I read this with Pigeonhole, a stave at a time over 10 days. I must say that the end of each stave left me wanting to read more. The main characters, Susanna and Adam, are in a counsellor?s meeting but both of them have hidden secrets. There are lots of twists in the story, as you ar...

    The Liar's Room was a very well written story told from many differing points of view.The main characters were interesting and the story line very slowly revealed long held secrets with plenty of twists along the way that built tension throughout the story.. Definitely worth a read. ...

    Great book! Based in a counselling room for the main, the author transports you through the main characters conversation back in time to relive a crime committed - but who is the real victim? Was great to hear the story from different viewpoints - the two main characters, the family,...

    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 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...

    "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. ...

    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...
