Weird, weird, weird. First half was OK but then it got very weird but I was determined to finish it to find out the conclusion. I would not recommend this book to others

I thought this book was preposterous and disappointing. Would not recommend it.

This is another hilarious story from Liane Moriarty. I LOVE her characters and the situations they get themselves into--checked this out hoping for funny and I wasn't disappointed at all. Had me laughing aloud a lot. These 9 strangers all come to a wellness retreat in the middle of nowhere, Australia, where the woman in charge has her own ideas of wellness. The character I enjoyed most was Frances, who has trouble even getting in the gate of the place. Some of her memorable quotes: "One must placate large strange men in the middle of nowhere."
"How was she going to cope for ten days without instant answers to idle questions?" That last quote reminded me just how much we rely on our phones and computers to give us fast answers. Almost all the characters are skillfully sketched out for us, like Jessica, who is enjoying her post-lottery-winning lifestyle and couldn't understand why her husband didn't like the way she was spending money to improve herself.
"She couldn't shake the feeling that if she didn't record this moment on her phone then it wasn't really happening, it didn't count, it wasn't real life." Jessica felt that "the money made her instantly more intelligent and beautiful and stylish."
Moriarty does interpersonal antics marvelously and usually quite comedic, except when they shouldn't be.

Not her best one but good enough for fans of Moriarty!!

After ‘Big Little Lies’ I had unrealistic expectations - this was fine but underwhelming by comparison... the plot was developed well though.

This book was just kind of weird.

It was an okay read, but I struggled with so many characters and the dialogues between them. The premise of going to a 10-day life changing spa experience was interesting, and despite all that happened to them, it was an awakening for the 9 guests. The ending was a happy walk into the sunset for the nine guests and at least one of the employees.
