Review: The Guest List by Lucy Foley (Spoiler-Free)

This book was really easy to read and was well executed, I just wish we were a bit more connected to the characters. Don't get me wrong I'm all for unlikable characters, but in order for the story to be compelling and feel like it has stakes we still have to be able to root for them (take Amy Dunne from Gone Girl or Joe Goldberg from You, for example). Knowing someone ends up dead but not who is a cool concept, but not if you don't care which character it ends up being.


I do have to hand it to Lucy Foley though for that twist at around the two-thirds point. The ending wasn't anything revolutionary, but that two-thirds twist GOT ME.


I will say I highly recommend the audiobook for this one! The cast and accents were great and really enhanced the story.


Overall this was fun, but forgettable.
