What the Critics Say

"A gripping debut with a brilliant twist, I loved it." (BA Paris, author of Behind Closed Doors)
"For fans of twisty, dark thrillers, this is the one. Fabulously written voices and a plot that keeps you guessing until the very end." (Kate Hamer, author of The Girl in the Red Coat)
"Sometimes I Lie is a rare book, combining helter skelter twists with razor sharp sentences. Make sure you read it in a well lit room, Alice Feeney's imagination is a very dark place indeed." (Dan Dalton, BuzzFeed)
"Fiendishly clever - an absolute masterclass in plotting and narrative design." (Richard Skinner, Faber Academy)
"Boldly plotted, tightly knotted - a provocative true-or-false thriller that deepens and darkens to its ink-black finale. Marvellous." (AJ Finn, author of The Woman in the Window)
"An utterly compelling, twisted, shocking psychological thriller that made me gasp out loud." (Sophie Raworth, BBC presenter)
"You wish there were more books like Sometimes I Lie: unusually, it's both a compelling psychological thriller and beautifully written. There's also a parade of more or less monstrous characters, a narrator as unreliable as they come and a late twist you're most unlikely to see coming. Tremendously satisfying." (Nick Higham, BBC Meet the Author presenter)
"Absolutely Brilliant!!" (Nina Pottell, books editor, Prima Magazine)
"Raced through Sometimes I Lie, completely gripping, left me gasping in horror and really couldn't put it down." (Kelly Allen, journalist)

    "Hooked from the first paragraph! "
    What made the experience of listening to Sometimes I Lie the most enjoyable?

    The narrator of this book really knows how to read a story! She has such a engaging manner about her, one that draws you one and leaves you wanting more and this, coupled with an incredible storyline, makes this book an absolute must read/listen!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Sometimes I Lie?

    I can't pinpoint just one. This story is gripping and full of twists that I didn't see coming. One of the best thrillers I have read in a very long time.


    Which character – as performed by Stephanie Racine – was your favourite?

    Definitely the main character


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    This was definitely a book I wanted to listen to in one sitting! I stayed up for hours listening to you, spell bound and waiting to see what the next twist would involve


    Any additional comments?

    Read it! I am definitely reading this one again.. I can not wait for Alice's next book

    Story
    "No lie, this audiobook is good!"

    The first-person narrator of Alice Feeney’s gripping psychological thriller is the central character, Amber Reynolds, who opens by telling us three things about herself: she’s in a coma, her husband doesn’t lover her anymore, and sometimes, she lies.

    Her account of the story is immediately dubious and we’re kept on the edge of our seat deciphering what is real and what isn’t over three time periods of her life. In the present, Amber lies in a coma after a horrific single-car accident. Unable to respond, she lays in her hospital bed listening to the voices and movement around her which gets increasingly more ominous.

    In the past, we get to know Amber as a 9-year-old child, circa 1991, and as an adult in the time leading up to her accident, working on the Coffee Morning radio show where she manipulates the demise of her more popular co-host’s career.

    The divine Stephanie Racine reads Sometimes I Lie with great skill, capturing the innocence of youth, the desperation and guilt of Amber’s workplace backstabbing, and the terror of a stalked woman trapped in an unmoving body as her memories of what happened slowly filter back. Racine introduces the listener to very distinct characters and, as we learn alongside Amber that her accident may have been a deliberate attempt at her life, Racine subtly adds an darkening air of intent to innocent conversations and events.

    Feeney has written a gripping thriller. Her characters and most situations are identifiable and, using an unreliable storyteller is a great device for rocking the boat even more than the unfolding events themselves. Compounding the tension after Amber’s confession that she lies, is the early reveal of her stalker. By not leaving the reveal until the final scenes, we’re drawn into Amber’s present-day predicament further, while remaining ever-uncertain if the story will play out towards the most predictable conclusion.

    Better then a sosso sanga at bunnings and a ripper twist at the lay down that left me with eye's wider then the great aussie bite. If you know what I mean you shagga you.

    "Unlikeable characters"
    What was most disappointing about Alice Feeney’s story?

    It dragged on and I found the characters annoying and shallow.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Stephanie Racine’s performances?

    No.


    You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The storyline was interesting however I didn't get to the end.

    Where does Sometimes I Lie rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Very original story, with a twist that literally smacks you in the face. Had read the reviews before I listened, all saying about "the twist", so I was looking for it, trying to guess it, and still didn't .. Excellent narration by Stephanie. Get this, you will not be disappointed.


    What about Stephanie Racine’s performance did you like?

    Real feeling in her words.

    "Upsetting"

    The entire book was pretty unpleasant to listen to, but I imagine it was meant to, so good job on that. The performance included very loud dialogue combined with soft whisper like narration, which I get for dramatic effect but was inconvenient for listening purposes. Very plot twisty book, which encouraged readers to never have a human interaction ever again. So that's cool.

    A very well read book. A disturbing story with an unusual twist. Didn't see the end coming. A bit slow at the beginning but worth the wait. An original and unsettling story.

    "Not all it promised"

    I felt this book was full of twists and turns but not in a good way. It was difficult to grasp any story line you could stay with as it changed so often. There was not a character who was not extremely messed up and even Paul wasn't given the chance for the reader to gain trust as he was developed for us to think he was the perpetrator from the beginning. The ending was as puzzling as the rest of the. Ppl there was no reveal I still don't know who was who.

    "Struggled in parts with the darkness"

    Found the story a bit confusing and was glad when the end was reached... had I been aware that it was so much about mental illness I would have avoided it altogether. However, I did get to the end which says a lot for the writing and the Narrator is really good ..
