Nine Perfect Strangers by Liane Moriarty
Updated: Feb 14
Summary: Nine people arrive at Tranquillum House for a 10-day transformation retreat, but they are in for more than just yoga, meditation, and fasting. When the mysterious owner tries a new protocol, everyone finds themselves taking a deeper look at themselves.
Review: I ordered Nine Perfect Strangers as an extra book from Book of the Month Club because I had seen such rave reviews. It definitely was interesting, but took me a while to actually get into.
Chapters bounced between the perspectives of the different characters, but through a third-person narration which made it a little drab. Each perspective read the same with little variation in tone or personality.
What caught the interest was the backstories of the characters and the surprise of what the owner had in store for them. Until that point, it felt a bit slow. It definitely wasn't my favorite of the year, but was different, to say the least.
