“Sometimes I Lie”–Review

41fsIXhitVL._SX330_BO1,204,203,200_My name is Amber Reynolds.

There are three things you should know:

1. I’m in a coma.

2. My husband doesn’t love me anymore.

3. Sometimes I lie.

Amber learns she is in the hospital. She may not be able to open her eyes, let alone speak. But she can hear everything and everyone, although they have no idea. Even though she doesn’t remember how she wound up in a coma, Amber suspects her husband had something to do with it.

This story alternates from Amber’s paralyzed present, the week before the accident, and a series of childhood diary entries from 20 years ago. Every chapter leads up to the most important question: Is something really a lie if you believe it’s the truth?

I must say I did enjoy the suspense from this book, especially the chapters with the childhood diaries. Once I got to the ending, it made me wonder if the narrator was actually telling the truth or not. For those who’ve read the book, what do you think?

Feel free to post your comments. Happy reading!
