The Elizas
The Elizas: A Novel | Sara Shepard
New York Times bestselling author of Pretty Little Liars Sara Shepard makes her mark on adult fiction with this Hitchcockian double narrative composed of lies, false memories, and a protagonist who must uncover the truth for survival. When debut novelist Eliza Fontaine is found at the bottom of a hotel pool, her family at first assumes that its just another failed suicide attempt. But Eliza swears she was pushed, and her rescuer is the only witness. Desperate to find out who attacked her, Eliza takes it upon herself to investigate. But as the publication date for her novel draws closer, Eliza finds more questions than answers. Like why are her editor, agent, and family mixing up events from her novel with events from her life? Her novel is completely fictional, isnt it? The deeper Eliza goes into her investigation while struggling with memory loss, the closer her life starts to resemble her novel, until the line between reality and fiction starts to blur and she can no longer tell where her protagonists life ends and hers begins. Fans of Pretty Little Liars, S.J. Watsons Before I Go to Sleep, and Ruth Wares The Woman in Cabin 10 will be drawn to the drama of feeling like no one is on your side, the high tension of not knowing who you can trust, the hair-raising truths hidden among lies, and a faceless, nameless presence controlling Elizas life from the shadows.

I read this halfway through and skimmed through the rest. Got bored at the halfway point, and was confused as to what was going on. Ready to move on to the next one!

Eliza is an alcoholic in the midst of writing a novel but as she gets closer to the publication date she experiences #dejavu while her novel begins to be intertwined with her real life. Slowly, it becomes hard to separate truth from fiction and something sinister is lurking beneath it all. This is another case of an unreliable narrator with Girl on a Train vibes, but I enjoyed the twists and turns!

Kalalalatja I never got on the Girl-on-the-train-train, so I‘m not sure I‘m into this, but your blurb makes me kind of interested 🤷‍♀️ 1y

Just a little haul at the library. I should have checked Litsy about The Elizas before I brought it home, the reviews here have me thinking this one isn‘t going to be for me...🤷🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️😬.

But I‘m super stoked on Vox, that may get bumped up the stack.

EmilyChristine I can‘t wait to read Vox! 1y

I found the parralel stories confusing initially, as I somehow missed that Eliza was sharing parts from her soon to be published book. I enjoyed it although it was a little (maybe a lot) far fetched. Not sure how I felt about the ending as I'm still not sure what really happened, but given that the book was about mind games and manipulation, the ending was very fitting in that respect.

A pretty good quick read. Eliza is questioning what is a memory, what is real, and what is just part of her book. People are hiding things, and others are telling her she did things she doesn‘t remember. Not ground breaking but still a good summer/beach read. And yes it‘s another unreliable female narrator, but because she had a legit reason to question things,she didn‘t drive me as crazy as the usual drunk unreliable female narrator.

SilversReviews This was an interesting read. 1y

I wanted this to be good, I really did. But it pretty much just rips off Shepard‘s own “The Good Girls” in a way, and also tries to be every thriller with an unreliable woman as the narrator that‘s come out in the last three years. Glad it‘s over. #theelizas #sarashepard

I am a big fan of Sara Shepard‘s novels, and will read anything she writes. This book was good, however it made me feel like I was never going to finish it. About halfway through I felt like I had been reading it forever. I‘m not usually like that with the books I read so I‘m not sure what happened. However, I did enjoy the book and was satisfied with how it ended.

Mehso-so

This book was just meh for me. I did the audiobook and honestly don‘t know if I would have finished it had I been reading the print version. I love an unreliable narrator and a good thriller and while this book tries to be a psychological thriller it felt like the watered down version of one. It felt more YA than thriller. There is a story within the story that made it very confusing at times. It just didn‘t do it for me.

THE ELIZAS was a psychological fest.

Did I or didn't I do that?

Did I or didn't I remember that situation?

Is the character in my book really me?

Be patient and read carefully when you read THE ELIZAS. You never know who may be lurking.

JoScho @SilversReviews I was at first but it is coming together a bit now. 2y
SilversReviews @JoScho Same for me. 2y
JoScho Glad to know it isn‘t just because I am listening to the audiobook. I definitely process better visually so I was thinking it was because I was listening instead of reading. 2y
SilversReviews @JoScho Any better? 2y
JoScho @SilversReviews yes but you know I think the problem is the story in the story seems a bit distracting at times. 2y
SilversReviews @JoScho Ok. That may very well be the case. There was more than one story going on. Thanks. 2y

Thank you @miralunasbooknook for the #curiousheartgiveaway . I loved Eleanor Oliphant, I‘m definitely sold on this!

So many intriguing book releases this spring, I‘m very curious and look forward to reading the tagged book. Unreliable heroine, blending Hitchcock and Ruth Ware, I‘m excited!

first adult novel by the author of Pretty Little Liars & it is a crazy ride that is reminiscent of those books. Eliza is sure she is going crazy, she has all these strange and terrifying memories. The more she looks into things the more confused she becomes, memories are startlingly like the novel she wrote. What is real and what is fiction and who can she trust?

Thank you to NetGalley & the publisher for providing an ARC for my honest review.
