Revue de presse

“Moriarty has taken chick lit to a new level with her clever, engrossing THE LAST ANNIVERSARY.” (Cleveland Plain Dealer)

“[A] stunner…[Moriarty’s] prose turns from funny through poignant to frightening in an artful snap.” (Publishers Weekly (starred review))

Présentation de l'éditeur

Sophie Honeywell always wondered if Thomas Gordon was the one she let get away. He was the perfect boyfriend, but on the day he was to propose, she broke his heart. A year later he married his travel agent, while Sophie has been mortifyingly single ever since. Now Thomas is back in her life because Sophie has unexpectedly inherited his aunt Connie's house on Scribbly Gum Island -- home of the famously unsolved MunroBabymystery.

Sophie moves onto the island and begins a new life as part of an unconventional family where it seems everyone has a secret. Grace, a beautiful young mother, is feverishly planning a shocking escape from her perfect life. Margie, a frumpy housewife, has made a pact with a stranger, while dreamy Aunt Rose wonders if maybe it's about time she started making her own decisions.

As Sophie's life becomes increasingly complicated, she discovers that sometimes you have to stop waiting around -- and come up with your own fairy-tale ending.

As she so adroitly did in her smashing debut novel, Three Wishes, the incomparable Liane Moriarty once again combines sharp wit, lovable and eccentric characters, and a page-turning story for an unforgettable Last Anniversary.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Oh how I wish there were twenty more books by author, Liane Moriarty 25 mars 2013

Once I read 'What Alice Forgot', I immediately purchased this, as well as every book by Ms. Moriarty. Her character development, her humor, her story-telling skills are the best I have come across in a very long time. I consumed each book, one right after the other, dreading reaching the end, yet unable to stop. I highly recommend this book and this author.

This was a great book, which kept me up till 2:40 am! I enjoyed Liane Moriarty's previous book, Three Wishes, but this was so much better...a fully realized family drama. It's the story of the Doughty family, who live on the secluded Scribbly Gum Island off the coast of Australia (near Sydney), and the Munro Baby Mystery. In 1932, a baby was found in a kitchen with a cake cooling on the counter and some blood on the floor. Two sisters, Connie and Rose, decide to raise the baby, and the mystery is never solved. Not publicly, anyway.

Another main character is Sophie, who dated one of the Doughty men for a time. When Connie dies near the beginning of the novel, she leaves her house on Scribbly Gum Island to Sophie, who always secretly coveted it, and Sophie becomes a part of the family.

All the characters were fascinating - dreamy Rose; snappy, determined Connie; sweet, lovable Sophie; and the devastatingly attractive Callum. I did think the ending was a little unfair for Sophie, but it was a really engaging read. Moriarty has a lot of great insights into human nature and the human condition.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A wonderful storyteller brings Oz to life! 18 septembre 2007
Par jesharris - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I read THE LAST ANNIVERSARY before reading Liane Moriarty's first novel, THREE WISHES, and it got me completely hooked on her writing. Some authors seem to write basically the same genre book over and over again, but Liane Moriarty is not one of them. This novel is quite different from THREE WISHES: a bit more complex, more of a mystery story, and with some darker edges. The subplot in LAST ANNIVERSARY about Grace's post-partum depression quite literally gave me chills. And I didn't see the Munro Baby Mystery's resolution coming, which is a pleasant surprise when you have read as many too-predictable mysteries as I have. I loved the uniquely Australian setting and became completely absorbed in this story, which took me right into the lives of everyone connected to Scribbly Gum Island. If you have not yet discovered Liane Moriarty, don't wait: She's the best thing to come from Australia since Yellow Tail wines!

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Not her best work.... 6 octobre 2013

I bought this book after reading "Husband's Secret." I thought that book was wonderful, so I had high expectations for this novel. Sadly I was disappointed. I think the most aggravating thing about it was the rapid switching between multiple characters' points of view (without identification at times.) It was disorienting at times. Additionally, I didn't find several of the story lines very compelling. I'd recommend one if Moriarity's other works instead.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Page turner, but in the end very disappointing! 17 septembre 2013
Par Andrea - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
To give this book credit, once I got rolling reading it, I wanted to read more. It was definitely a page-turner.

There were just too many characters to keep track of. Who was related to who and how? I eventually sorted it all out, but had to power through the beginning to get there. Each chapter ended with some sort of cryptic message that you knew you would later learn more about. With so many characters it became confusing after a while, and in the end I wondered if all my questions were answered. It was VERY well written, but the stories didn't flow and felt so choppy.

Every single outcome of each of the characters was depressing. Not one happy ending, in my opinion. I know sometimes that is reality, however, I was hoping for so much, and was just let down in the end.

***WARNING SPOILER ALERT***
Grace: denied and never resolved her issues with PPD. While yes, she did grow to love her son, her issues went way beyond that, and needed to be treated with medication.

Sophie: never found love and had to become impregnated by a gay man...kind of sad.

Channum: ended up with Grace. It's almost like there was no consequence to Grace's little plan of trying to get him and Sophie together. She was ungrateful and sick and I feel like she should have lost him in the end. Plus, Sophie deserved him.

Rose: the most disappointing of all. She is an old woman and never in her life experienced romantic love? I was hoping, when we found out that she is Enigma's mother, that it was the result of some sort of romantic fling, or relationship she had as a teen. NOT from a rape. This entire family was built from the ugliest of situations. And then she told everyone, so they all had to live with the burden of knowing they were the result of a violent, disgusting crime.

Veronika, Laura, Margie, Ron: totally irrelevant to the entire story, besides being obnoxious

Thomas: ended up with a drab woman, although he secretly still loved Sophie.

Enigma: the most uninteresting character of all. We really learned nothing about her or her life, besides that she was Rose's daughter.
