Reviewed in Canada on September 19, 2017
I am always searching for a book that demands to be finished. This is one of them. I devoured it.

Like some other reviewers, I am a huge fan of Donna Tartt's "The Secret History". For those who have read that wonderful book, I would say If We Were Villains has a similar aesthetic, but ultimately reads differently, particularly with respect to pacing (If We Were Liars is a much faster read, in my opinion). It also frequently reminded of Dead Poet's Society (film).

A great book to read on chilly October nights, or to stave off the back-to-campus nostalgia that sometimes comes in autumn. Also a must-read for former drama students who enjoy mysteries, and remember just how twisted the relationships between cast-members can become...
