Book review: The Lying Game by Ruth Ware


I liked Ruth Ware’s first two books The Woman in Cabin 10 and In a Dark, Dark Wood, so I wanted to read her newest book at the end of last summer, The Lying Game.

This ended up being my favorite book out of all 3 of her books.

Isa, Kate, Thea, and Fatima were classmates and best friends when they were teenagers at a boarding school. They invented a game called “the lying game” which led to making lots of enemies when they grew up.

The four friends have not seen each other for a long time, but Isa gets a text from Kate saying that all of the friends are needed. They all come together to visit Kate to help Kate with her mysterious problem.

I did not necessarily like any of the characters in the novel. They were not very likable characters and made very poor decisions.

The novel kept my interest and was an intriguing thriller. I gave it 4/5 starts on Goodreads.
