It was supposed to be a lovely celebration of the triplets’ birthday and it began as such, but a sudden explosion of temper erupted and all hell broke loose. This is how this story starts and the rest of the book discloses how these 3 tall, very attractive triplets came to arrive at this tumultuous point in their lives.
As usual, Liane Moriarty crafts a fun read – with a combination of both heavier and lighter issues that each of the sisters is coping with. She is able to weave an emotionally abusive relationship, blended families, infertility and infidelity among the sisters’ lives, without making this a totally depressing story. Quite an accomplishment, I think! I think she is able to do this by intertwining the serious with lighter, funnier moments, with sarcasm and with beautiful moments as well. Sort of like how life is, I believe — ie. the good with the bad.
While this was not my favorite book of hers, I did enjoy it very much and do recommend it. This would be a good summer read! (Just wish it felt anywhere close to summer right now — I’d even take spring!)
