Our Little Cruelties By Liz Nugent

Our Little Cruelties By Liz Nugent


Three brothers are at the funeral. One lies in the coffin.

Will, Brian and Luke grow up competing for their mother’s unequal love. As men, the competition continues – for status, money, fame, women …

They each betray each other, over and over, until one of them is dead.

But which brother killed him?

My Thoughts:

I really wanted to like this book more than I did, I personally found the storyline did not really go anywhere, the brothers were all unlikeable characters but I think that is what the author wanted. I found it very dark and slightly all over the place. I did feel the sibling rivalry which added to the story but I felt as though a lot more could have been written. The brothers all spend their lives betraying one another so much so until one dies. But who was the one that did it? and why? For me it just lacked that gripping suspense that I like from a thriller.

I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
