I have read Liz Nugent before and find her highly entertaining and the storyline compulsive reading. ‘’Our Little Cruelties’ was no different and it was enjoyable and engaging if a little sad at times.
This is the story of three brothers, Will, Brian and Luke, and their relationships with their parents and girlfriends/wife. It is addictive reading and is told by each brother with timelines jumping around. Having said that it is easy to follow and adds to the intrigue.
I wasn’t keen on any of the characters but could see how the interrelationships left each of the characters hurt and angry with each other. the novel begins with a funeral where one brother is dead but, at that stage, it is not clear which brother or how it happened.
I would like to thank NetGalley, Penguin Books UK, Penguin Ireland, and Liz Nugent for my ARC of Our Little Cruelties in return for my honest review.
Great read. Highly recommended.
