Description - Nine Perfect Strangers by Liane Moriarty

From the no. 1 New York Times bestselling author of The Husband's Secret and Big Little Lies.

The retreat at health and wellness resort Tranquillum House promises total transformation. Nine stressed city dwellers are keen to drop their literal and mental baggage, and absorb the meditative ambience while enjoying their hot stone massages.

Watching over them is the resort's director, a woman on a mission to reinvigorate their tired bodies and minds.

These nine perfect strangers have no idea what is about to hit them.

With her wit, compassion and uncanny understanding of human behaviour, Liane Moriarty explores the depth of connection that can be formed when people are thrown together in... unconventional circumstances.



"She is...both hugely popular yet subversive...Nine Perfect Strangers shows Moriarty still taking risks with fiction...weighty issues writ with humour and a light touch. The hammer is still in the handbag, ready to smash a glass window or two." Lucy Sussex, The Australian

"Welcome to Tranquillum House where those Perfect Strangers ... have come to sort out their lives ...This gives Moriarty the opportunity to do what she does best, write about the human condition and connections that bind us all, with wicked humour, empathy and compassion - and a little bit of danger thrown in." Frances Whiting, Courier Mail

"One of the few writers I'll drop anything for. Her books are wise, honest, beautifully observed..." Jojo Moyes

"Moriarty is a deft storyteller who creates believable, relatable characters." Washington Post

"Moriarty is brilliant at her craft, all the time cranking up the suspense." The Age

"funny and scary" Stephen King

"Sharply intelligent" Entertainment Weekly

"Mistress of the razor-sharp observation" Kate Morton

Book Review: Nine Perfect Strangers by Liane Moriarty - Reviewed by (20 Sep 2018)

Nine people book into a health resort, Tranquillum House, ready to be transformed into a better, thinner, healthier version of their former self.

A washed up romance novelist, a family broken by tragedy, a has-been football star, a young couple whose marriage is faltering, the wife who has been left for a newer model and the lawyer who has commitment issues. Nine perfect strangers all broken in their own way looking for a make-over, a rejuvenation. Then there is Maria (Masha) Dmitrichenko, a Russian immigrant. Masha, the director of Tranquillum House, is a transformation zealot – enlightenment for all. These nine guests are to be the first to start her new regime. Their destinies are in her hands. She is going to change these people, not just temporarily, but forever.

I wasn’t sure where this story was going to go. But.....the way it went was never in my wildest dreams what I imagined.

Moriarty’s ability to bring out the small idiosyncrasies in each person is extraordinary. She slowly dissects each character, their thoughts, fears and hopes are revealed through her writing. It was easy to see something of yourself in these everyday people.

Moriarty has written a novel that delves into the human mind and the way we think and connect with each other, showing an intricate observation of human failings and frailties.

The story had my emotions reeling. I could feel empathy for the characters and sadness over their different circumstances. But a sudden shift in the story had my anger rising, which shows how real the characters and the story felt to me. With Moriarty you never know what could possibly happen next.

Nine Perfect Strangers is a roller coaster of a read with beautifully developed characters full of insecurities, false bravado and completely relatable. Once you start reading this book it will be hard to put down!
