The Husband's Secret Reviews
Not bad, as far as my local book club choices go. The style is certainly engaging and I kept wanting to read more and more from the first page, but it was surprisingly predictable given the popularity of the book. Decent, good for a half-drunken, wine-filled discussion (we have a classy book club).
I still think this would have been a good chance to sneak some gay porn into my book club...
I have enjoyed reading all of Liane Moriarty's books. I was introduced to her books early this year and she is now definitely a favourite.
The first part of The Husband's Secret was a bit difficult to get through, meeting the many characters, the connection between all of them, and the different points of view. However, it was
well worth the wait as the story came together. An amazing story of the secrets we keep.
Lots of twists and turns with many great ethical questions. The book show ...more
Liane Moriarty is an artist.
First of all we have different women that seem to have nothing to do with one another. The book toggles between each of them. Additionally, the prologue is a quick synopsis of Pandora and her box, pointing out that Pandora was never told to not open the box. Why wouldn't she open the box? She had no idea what would be unleashed when she opened the box. The stories are also interspersed with a little bit of history of the Berlin Wall. Which would seem odd except that, ...more
Last week was a terrible time for me and my family because my dad suffered from a mild stroke/heart attack and was confined at the hospital for five days. For the first two days, he was confused and disoriented. It broke my heart to see him like that because he has always been so active and so animated despite being already 70 years of age. I got my passion for reading from him and you’ll probably won’t believe me but I did convince him to read Hunger Games, Divergent and the likes. He’s home no ...more
When I read the cover jacket summary, I was highly intrigued. What did this man do that he wrote a letter to his wife that should be opened upon his death... maybe I should do something like that! But wait... do I have a secret I need to reveal... yes... worth putting in a sealed letter that I can't disclose until I'm dead and buried... no... so I guess this won't be something I need to do in the future. Eh, I tried.
But reading the book is something to do! And it did not disappoint. It has many ...more
I can honestly say “The Husband’s Secret” is a unique read! In my humble opinion, of course.Why? Because it was like nothing I’ve ever read. With a clever plot, ‘real’ and relatable characters and engaging writing, this novel was amazingly done. It was very different from what I usually read, but from time to time I love to read something like this.. From the title you can guess the story is about a secret…obviously, but this novel is about more than that. It’s a story about life, famil ...more
I really don't know what possessed me to buy this book, and a paperback at that. I usually buy paperbacks of ebooks that I really loved, either to re-read it later, or just to have them on my bookshelf looking pretty :). I took a gamble on this one and it didn't pay off. I only read about 25 pages and it bored me to tears.
A wife is sitting with a letter on her lap, undecided if she should opened it or not. For the life of me I couldn't understand why she was being so apprehensive to open it. It ...more

From the moment I read that quote posted above, I was hooked into the story. Or, I was hooked into the idea of it. I was just so curious and I really just wanted to know WHAT was in that damn letter!!!! I wasn't even planning to read this book now even though I had it on my eventual TBR so I started it thinking that maybe I'd just find out the secret and stop there... But the story sucked me in and I just kept reading and reading and reading and it be ...more
