The Book of Lies by James Moloney

I want one! A book of lies, that is. The amazing book that this novel from James Moloney is centered around has the ability to discern if a person is speaking the truth or a lie. Truth can be a slippery thing though and the characters in this book soon find the the book can be an unreliable voice. I enjoyed it. There must be a sequel though as there are stories left untold when arriving at the last page. On his webpage, the author states the sequel is due in 2006. I haven’t come across it yet.
James Moloney is one of my favourite writers. We teach “A Bridge to Wiseman’s Cove” to our year 8s. I think “Lost Property”, which I read earlier in the year was one of my favourite reads for this year. My son also enjoyed it.
