Book Review: Sometimes I Lie by Alice Feeney

Book Rating (out of 5):

My name is Amber Reynolds. There are three things you should know about me: 
1. I’m in a coma. 
2. My husband doesn’t love me anymore. 
3. Sometimes I lie. 

This is what we know of Amber Reynolds as we begin the journey of discovering how she ended up in a coma.

Amber wakes up in the hospital, trapped in her body. Unable to move, speak or open her eyes. To everyone on the outside, she is a coma patient. But on the inside, she can hear everything that happens around. Can feel them as they touch her.

As she lays inert, Amber slowly begins to remember pieces of her life starting with the week before she woke up in a coma. We also go farther back and get a glimpse into her past via childhood diary entries. As well as the present, trapped inside Amber’s body in the hospital as she is visited by her family.

The thing that I loved about this book was that for the first time in forever, I had absolutely zero sense about how this book was going to end. I even tried at one point to flip to the end to get a sense for if what I thought was happening was right and IT DIDN’T WORK!!!! I got zero sense for where it was going. If anything I was more confused so don’t be a cheater like me.

There are several twists at the end that will have your jaw gaping and if you see any of them coming, well frankly, you must be Sherlock Holmes or something and you need to get out of my face with that. We like seriously can’t be friends. Sorry.

This book was enthralling from start to finish. I recommend that you carve out a full day before you start it because once you pick it up, you won’t be able to put it down.
