Pretty Little Liars By Sara Shepard

Sunday, 26 February 2012

Hello everyone, I really don't know why I read this book. I love the TV series of it and I knew the book would be a disappointment. Nonetheless I read it. Pretty Little Liars follows Aria, Spencer, Hanna and Emily's lives after the disappearance of their best friend Alison. All of the girls are grief-stricken but underneath the grief there's relief. Alison no longer controlled their lives or that's what they thought. Each of them has a secret that no one knows. No one but Alison that is but three years after her disappearance could Alison really be alive? That's what it seems like when each girl begins to receive anonymous messages about their secrets. All signed A. But who is A? Alison is still controlling there lives when she's not even there.
Here's the synopsis:

"Three years ago, Alison disappeared after a slumber party, not to be seen since. Her friends at the elite Pennsylvania school mourned her, but they also breathed secret sighs of relief. Each of them guarded a secret that only Alison had known. Now they have other dirty little secrets, secrets that could sink them in their gossip-hungry world. When each of them begins receiving anonymous emails and text messages, panic sets in. Are they being betrayed by some one in their circle? Worse yet: Is Alison back? A strong launch for a suspenseful series"

This book was a disappointment. Even for my low expectation. The problem with Pretty Little Liars is it has an awesome storyline but I don't think it is executed very well. I found this book very predictable which may be because I've watched the series or it could be that it's just a predictable book. I don't really like the characters, I feel that the are not very well developed and kinda annoying. I much prefer the TV series of this as with Vampire Diaries and The Secret Circle. The only thing that kept me reading was the need to know who A was but apparently you still don't know in book 10. It's not likely that I will keep reading this series but you never know. Curiosity may get the better of me. I would give this book 2/5 stars. I don't think I would recommend it but I do recommend the TV series!

My favourite quote:
“Only two can keep a secret if on of them is dead.”

A never-ending mystery that still isn't resolved by book 10?

Sounds like Lost! And we all know how that turned out...
