I just finished this great trilogy by Tarryn Fisher; Love Me With Lies. So I still have a bit hangover from reading such a wickedly good series of novels. The books made me frustrated and they were truly unputdownable. The characters had their own imperfection and complexity. Their obsession were palpable, and their words/lies are still swimming in my thoughts.
I believe that the below quote could sum up the story.
“I’ve come to the conclusion that there are no set rules in life. You do what you have to do to survive. If that means running away from the love of your life to preserve your sanity, you do it. If it means breaking someone’s heart so yours doesn’t break; do it. Life is complicated — too much so for
there to be absolutes. We are all so broken. Pick up a person, shake them around and you’ll hear the rattling of their broken pieces. Pieces our fathers broke, or our mothers, or our friends, strangers, or our loves.”
― Tarryn Fisher, Thief
