Truly Madly Guilty
Book Review - Truly Madly Guilty by Liane Moriarty
At the end of this audio book the narrator and the author discussed their relationship with each other and their relationship to reading. Liane Moriarty described herself as a "permanent reader." I really loved that phrase and I felt it describes me as well.
This book is about how one mistake, on one seemingly ordinary day, can change the most meaningful relationships in your life (for better or worse.) Six responsible adults at a backyard barbecue: Sam and Clementine have a busy but otherwise great life. They have two little girls, Sam just started a new job and Clementine is a cellist preparing for a big audition. Oliver and Erika have been trying to have a baby for two years and are about to ask Clementine, Erika's best friend, to donate her eggs. Vid and Tiffany are the boisterous and social next door neighbors with one child.
Each of their marriages are very different and the degree of friendship varies drastically giving a lot of opportunity for themes about relationships to emerge in this book. In addition, their parenting styles are conflicting and if I've learned anything about parenting from all of my friends having babies it is that people have STRONG opinions about parenting and a lot of people like to share those opinions, whether they are welcomed or not.
I'm a big fan of Liane Moriarty's work and this book did not disappoint!
