Beautiful Lies is well written and intriguing; however, for a thriller I found it rather un-thrilling.

    Kurzmeinung: Beautiful Lies is well written and intriguing; however, for a thriller I found it rather un-thrilling.
    Mystery Thriller.

    "The Universe doesn't like secrets. It conspires to reveal the truth, to lead you to it."

    Beautiful Lies is my first Lisa Unger book. In Beautiful Lies, Ridley Jones unexpectedly finds her nice, normal life turned upside-down when she heroically saves a little boy from being hit by a car on the streets of New York City. Everything she thought she knew about herself is suddenly called into question and she finds herself in a great deal of danger.

    Beautiful Lies is well written and intriguing; however, for a thriller I found it rather UN-thrilling. The story dragged. Unger's writing was always rather trite as well. She goes on and on, in Ridley's voice, about how life always comes down to the choices we've made, and it's not how strong we are but rather how we react to things. Especially near the end, every other paragraph is some musing over some trite platitude, and it just got to the point where I started to skim.

    This is apparently the first in a series starring Ridley Jones, but I think I'll pass on the other novel. I can’t say it was a bad book, cause it wasn’t - not to me, anyway. But it wasn’t the greatest for me.
