The Guest List

The Guest List by Lucy Foley Book Summary



“I loved this book. It gave me the same waves of happiness I get from curling up with a classic Christie...The alternating points of view keep you guessing, and guessing wrong.” — Alex Michaelides, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Silent Patient

"Evok[es] the great Agatha Christie classics…Pay close attention to seemingly throwaway details about the characters’ pasts. They are all clues.” -- New York Times Book Review

A wedding celebration turns dark and deadly in this deliciously wicked and atmospheric thriller reminiscent of Agatha Christie from the New York Times bestselling author of The Hunting Party.

The bride – The plus one – The best man – The wedding planner  – The bridesmaid – The body

On an island off the coast of Ireland, guests gather to celebrate two people joining their lives together as one. The groom: handsome and charming, a rising television star. The bride: smart and ambitious, a magazine publisher. It’s a wedding for a magazine, or for a celebrity: the designer dress, the remote location, the luxe party favors, the boutique whiskey. The cell phone service may be spotty and the waves may be rough, but every detail has been expertly planned and will be expertly executed.

But perfection is for plans, and people are all too human. As the champagne is popped and the festivities begin, resentments and petty jealousies begin to mingle with the reminiscences and well wishes. The groomsmen begin the drinking game from their school days. The bridesmaid not-so-accidentally ruins her dress. The bride’s oldest (male) friend gives an uncomfortably caring toast.

And then someone turns up dead. Who didn’t wish the happy couple well? And perhaps more important, why?

- It’s not like you know. It’s worse.5 star

A house, full of lies, a groom, full of chills, a bride, full of wisdom..and guests. Full of hate. You may think it as a thriller, it is, that’s fair. But I think it as a most... peculiar...GAME. It’s all to simple. It’s not who you suspect the least..nor whom you suspect the most. Look for details. In between the lines. But..maybe...instead of just a killing...justice is also done. Maybe, someone could finally rest. Or, maybe...there still out there. Seeking goals. play.

- SO GOOD5 star

The ending shocked me

- Do NOT read review by user kaykaybean135 star

Hello, just here to say if you’re reading the reviews to figure out of the book if for you some jerk used their review to spoil the end. Avoid review by user kaykaybean13.

- Page turner5 star

I could not put this book down! It kept my beyond interested from start to finish with all its’ twists and turns. Love how it all fit together in the end!

- Glued to the end4 star

It takes a lot to engage me in a book. I was an acquisitions editor for a publishing house. If a manuscript didn’t grab me in the first sentence, it usually wouldn’t interest me past the first page, much less to the end. I lasted to the end. I could be a little nit picky, but I won’t. I wasn’t her editor. I really enjoyed the book, from the first line all the way to the end. Well done. You got me!

- Light thriller3 star

This book was a page turner, but it felt much lighter than most thrillers/mysteries. Well written yet also soap opera-ish with dramatic chapter endings and little action and few answers until the very end.

- Incredibly boring1 star

I have no idea how this book got any good reviews. The book is around 350 pages and the ‘murder mystery’ dialogue comes at around page 250 of the book. It builds up so much to the actual wedding and climax of the plot - the first 250 pages are so incredibly boring. The conversations and history of the characters feel so meaningless. The syntax is incredibly dry and basic. I wouldn’t recommend this to anyone. The only reason I kept on reading is because I was waiting and waiting for any exciting part in the plot to start. I couldn’t even finish the book because I felt like I was wasting my time. I wouldn’t recommend this to anyone.

- Very good, worth the ourchase5 star

I loved the sample and had to see what happened next...and let’s just say I was not ready for that plot twist. Definitely recommend, it’s a fun ride. The writing is super descriptive and not overbearing. I enjoyed.

- Wow wow wow4 star

Interesting to start and a crescendo finish. It almost feels incomplete but a thrill nonetheless.

- Worth my time to the last second🙂5 star

I loved it! Even though it’s a lot I loved it ( reading everyone else reviews made me happy and sad)

- Not worth even a minute of my time!1 star

This was possibly the worst book I have read in the last 10 years.

- Mistery!!!!5 star

I really love this book its so beautifully written!💖💖

- Contrived2 star

Wow! What a waste of time. I couldn’t wait until it ended and I was totally underwhelmed.

- Great Twists5 star

Well written and suspenseful.

- Keeps you shockingly guessing right to the end!5 star

A wedding on an island. A reunion of boys from a boarding school- a cruel prank gone wrong and a death covered up for over 20 years. Then everything begins to unravel. For the killer, some of the guests that didn’t realize how connected they actually were to some of his gruesome behaviors and for the host and hostess of the wedding venue- who had an ulterior motive to lure the couple to their venue to get revenge on a 20 year old murder

- The Guest List5 star

Astonishing twists and turns - couldn’t put it down and almost got fired for being late to work but it was worth it!
