Amalgamation of every other New Adult book but has a charm that you can’t resist

As I said, Beautiful Liar is an Amalgamation of every other New Adult book but has a charm that you can’t resist. Maybe it’s the silky language that just draws you in and hold you there. What I felt with the book was a weird phenomenon. I knew and could predict successfully each twists and turns but somehow I was still excited and thrilled for the book and I don’t know why. Its really creepy like the way in spite of knowing that Leonardo is going to die in Titanic, every time you watch it, and see him plunge into the water, you are hoping he is going to survive the night rather than screaming at the screen as to why they couldn’t think of taking turns for staying in the water.

I think what the book deserves is a good applaud for the narration and language quality because in spite of everything, both these factors simply makes the book a good and engaging read. Plot and characters are for me personally predictable and nothing I haven’t seen before or read before but still was part of a good experience for the book

One of the portions that even the good narration and language couldn’t work towards was the epilogue or the Christmas special section that they had towards the ending which was a sour part for me for being too painfully cliché and unnecessary without much contribution to the book.
Do not come to the book excepting something new and unheard of because its not. All it offers is everything that you have seen or read before but if you throw away your prejudices and high expectations, what you get is a lovely entertaining and light read.
