The Liar by Nora Roberts is a Contemporary Romance novel. Yes, this is a book by THAT Nora Roberts, the world-famous author known the world over for her literary genius. Yes I know I’m going to hell for only giving one of her novels a 7.2 out of 10 rating, but I explain why down below.

  • Title: The Liar
  • Author:  Nora Roberts
  • Genre: Contemporary Romance
  • Length: 512 Pages
  • Released: April 14, 2015
The Liar

The Liar by Nora Roberts isn’t a bad book, but then again it’s not exactly a great book either. Everyone tells you that Nora Roberts is this great author and you MUST read her work. Okay so I’ve done just that and I’m sorry but I’m not really that impressed.

I figured a great artist would have done more research on her subject matter and she would have better understood the intricacies of bankruptcies, short sales, foreclosures, and death debt. Obviously, that is not the case.

Yes, it’s true, every book that Nora Roberts releases immediately shoots to the New York Times bestsellers list but once you reach her level of fame, it’s kind of hard for her books not to. She’s rumored to have more than 120,000 fans on her email list alone, and she has over 630,000 fans following her on Facebook.

She no matter what she puts out, she immediately can promote it to her already established, huge fan base. So even if the books he writes is poo, it still gets promoted to a huge number of people.

So she gets every book on the New York Times bestselling list automatically, not because a book he has written is good, but because she has a massive audience to promote whatever she does too.

It’s like if Kim Kardashian wrote a book. It doesn’t matter if the book was good or bad. No matter what, that book would sell a zillion copies. Why? Because Kim Kardashian has a big following.

So that issue aside, just how was The Liar?

Eh. I wasn’t impressed.

It’s grammatically correct. It’s perfectly edited with no little typos or anything of that nature.  You can’t really dispute that her technical skill as a writer isn’t there.

But the story itself isn’t going to overwhelm you. You can’t finish reading this book and be like oh my goodness, that was great and move on. You aren’t going to think about the characters or any part of the story days later.

I don’t know about you but I would rather an author tell me a story that blows my mind that has a few grammatical errors than have a grammatically perfect story that is just so-so.

I want to fall in love with the characters in the book, not be annoyed by them. I want to be swept away in the story and get lost in a fictional world.

I can’t really say this book is going to give you any of that.

The strange for me is, it’s hard to believe that the same person who wrote this book also wrote The Obsession. The writing style is strangely different. The skill level is also noticeably different. When you read the first few chapters of The Obsession, you think, okay this is the infamous Nora Roberts I’ve heard so much about. I promise you won’t feel that same sentiment if you read this book.

The Liar feels very half-assed. The passion you can feel when reading some books just isn’t in this book.

Sorry but I just wasn’t into this book at all. In fact, if I hadn’t previously read a Nora Roberts book that I loved, I would go as far to say I might not have ever bothered with one of her books again.
