Audio Book Review: The Truth and Other Lies by Sascha Arango

The Truth and Other Lies by Sascha Arango book cover and review
The Truth and Other Lies is such a twisted book.  The story is interesting, but the way it is told makes it even better. Arango has a way with words!

Henry Haydon is a happily married successful author.  Or is he? I really don't what to say too much about The Truth and Other Lies, because you need to experience each revelation as it is presented in the text. Let's just say Henry is a psychopath.

Henry gets himself in a bind when his mistress gets pregnant.  The solution he comes up with is fitting for the psycho that he is, however, he makes a huge mistake and now finds himself scrambling to save himself.  In order to accomplish this, he gets deeper and deeper into trouble.  Can he manage to get himself out?

It's not a mystery or a detective story.  We watch Henry do these things and know he's the culprit.  It's a matter of whether he's going to get caught and the lengths to which he will go to avoid capture. Arango's story is woven between the past and the present, has several colorful side characters, some surprising twists, and as morbid as it is, you will find yourself chuckling.

Corey Brill is the reader and he is excellent.  I don't really remember anything about his voice, and that just means he did a good job. It's hard to describe why I loved The Truth and Other Lies so much, but I did.

  1. 5/5... wow! Is this scary and gory? It sounds so good

    1. No, not scary or gory. Just a twisted psychopath who appears normal to everyone. Something about the writing just really grabbed me.
