Friends Like These

Summary: In this relentlessly twisty literary thriller from New York Times bestselling author Kimberly McCreight, a desperate intervention brings together a group of college friends 10 years after graduation—a reunion marked by lies, betrayal, and murder.

Everyone has those friends. Doesn’t matter how long it’s been, or how badly they’ve occasionally behaved, or how late it is when that call finally comes—you show up. No questions asked.

Honestly, that’s how the five of us ended up here in the Catskills. We did have the best of intentions. Especially after what happened to Alice all those years ago, we can’t bear to think of losing anyone else. In fact, we’ll do anything to make sure that doesn’t happen. We’ll go so much farther than we ever thought we would.

In the end, maybe that’s what caught up with us. That, and the fact that we’re such a complicated group—so much history and so many big personalities. Secrets, too, that can slip out at the most inopportune moments. Of course, we love each other despite all of those things. We love each other no matter what.

There’s something so beautiful about that kind of unconditional love. It can turn ugly, though. Or maybe that’s just us. After all, we’ve already been through so much together. And we have so very much to hide.


Traveling With T’s Thoughts:

This book took me some time to get into because of the multiple narrators, the characters that were kinda similar at first and a lot of back and forth switching in the timeline.

However, I kept listening because books about friends with SECRETS are one of my jams.

Glad I kept with it- because at some point, I got HOOKED.


What I Liked:

I do love this cover!

The secrets amongst friends. It’s crazy how many secrets these people had.

I thought the ending was REALLY good.


Bottom line: I enjoyed this book quite a bit, but these friends…. well I wouldn’t wish these friends on my worst enemy. 😉
