Descrizione

Hailed by New York Times bestselling author Lisa Jewell as "a force to be reckoned with," Liz Nugent is back with a powerful and unsettling new novel that will invite comparison to the bitter relationships in HBO's blockbuster series Succession, as it follows three brothers, bound by blood but split by fate, and delves into the many ways families can wreak emotional havoc across generations.

All three of the Drumm brothers were at the funeral.

But only one of them was in the coffin.

William, Brian, and Luke: three boys, born a year apart, trained from birth by their wily mother to compete for her attention. They play games, as brothers do…yet even after the Drumms escape into the world beyond their windows, those games-those little cruelties-grow more sinister, more merciless, and more dangerous. And with their lives entwined like the strands of a noose, only two of the brothers will survive.

Crisply written and quickly paced, perfect for fans of breathtaking suspense, Little Cruelties gazes unflinchingly into the darkness: the darkness collecting in the corners of childhood homes, hiding beneath marriage beds, clasped in the palms of two brothers shaking hands. And it confirms Liz Nugent-whose work has invited comparisons to Patricia Highsmith and Barbara Vine and has been celebrated as "captivating" (People) and "highly entertaining" (The Washington Post)-as one of the most exciting, perceptive voices in contemporary fiction.

    Good writing, the brothers cruel, self centered, not a feel good book. Unfortunately, many times the story held truths of real people’s lives. Author has insight of how life damages.

    Loved this book. Written and narrated very well. The different perspectives made it extremely interesting. It was like a train wreck you couldn’t stop listening to- in the best kinda way! I’ll be checking out other books from this author.

    Fantastic book! Very well written, and I really enjoyed the way the story of each character was told from their point of view in the same story.

    Gripping. Liz writes diabolical characters so well. Total page turner.
  • (5/5)
    Amazing! After searching for a a great "listen", I happened upon this book....and I so glad I did. Everything came together perfectly...the story was awesome & the narrators...oh my God, the narrators were fantastic. I usually don't listen to audiobooks narrated by men...unless it's George Newbern, because I absolutely love George Newbern's voice...anyway, I reccomend this to any & all. It's full of self-hate, guilt, jealousy, terrible parenting, antipsychotic meds, greed, pride and all the other 7 deadly sins.
