Heartwarming!

I was actually confused at the beginning of this book and wasn't sure if I was going to be drawn into the story. But after a few chapters, when I got more of an idea who everyone was, I was so interested in the sisters and their lives. Another winner by Liane Moriarty! This book was so touching and pulled at my heartstrings. Loved it.

Loved it! Quick, fun read.

Loved the dynamics of the trio of sisters, each with their own quirks, trials and tribulations. Cute, casual, and easy read so I burned right through this one.

Didn’t even like the main characters

I’ve enjoyed several other books from this author, not this one. The three girls really aren’t likable. They act like jerks in public, which is passed off as ok because they’re so cute. One of them cheerfully stole another woman’s husband and we’re supposed to sympathize with her troubles. I was hoping he would dump her. Towards the end, a character is introduced who just may have a part to play. You are quickly made aware, tho, that this guy isn’t under any consideration for becoming an important part of anyone’s life because he is, horror of horrors, fat!!!! He is immediately discounted and minimized, but not until the fat jokes, comments and critiques have fully played out. What a cheap shot. Well, we know what this author thinks about fat people!!

This was my 4th read by this author...

Geez, I really wanted to feel about this book as I did about her others. This really was just a mediocre read for me. I, oddly, couldn't connect with the characters. I felt like I couldn't visualize them accurately. The plots to the story line felt kind of...dull. I struggled to get through it that's for sure. I wouldn't say not to read this, but for myself, there really felt like there wasn't anything that exciting about it.

Crazy Triplets will warm your heart

I just loved this book! As one of the previous reviewers said I thought it would be far fetched, the idea of triplets but it really wasn't. Obviously this author has some knowledge of sisters and maybe of multiples, as it came across very genuine. Each sister has a very distinct, if crazy personality. I loved the relationships they shared with one another and the rest of their family. The book is told in turn from the point of view of each of the sisters, with interspersed "man on the street" style narratives from unnamed individuals witnessing the triplets at different points in their life, which I found unusual and refreshing. Emails sent between the sisters are hilariously funny. One sister always hits the "respond to all" button and ends up sending the sister she is talking about (supposedly behind her back) the email. I also enjoyed the setting (Australia) I haven't read many books set there. It's always fun to see how the other half lives, the little differences between your life and the life of those on the other side of the world. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys humor, books about family, sisters or chick lit.

Very funny very real

I thought the book would be rather far-fetched in terms of plot, but it's actually not! I really enjoyed it because I also have two sisters and the author really managed to convey the relationship 3 female siblings can share. I definitely recommend it!

A Fun Read!

It is the story of three intertwined lives, triplets, we meet them celebrating their 34th birthday and go back to their last year's adventures to understand the mess they are in. I read this book during the summer, and I totally enjoyed it. It is a quick read, funny, sad, you sympathize with each one of them, feel their hearts broken, laugh out loud at their mischief, but also sense the love and trust they have for each other. I enjoyed Moriarty's style, a little suspence, sometimes predictable, definitely refreshing!

Fun, Warn, Entertaining Debut - Very Enjoyable

I just finished this book and my only regret is that the author has no previous books that I can read. There was nothing I didn't enjoy about the book - from the cover art to the conclusion. The story draws you in immediately and then holds your interest with a plot both unusual and unpredictable. I won't spoil the book for others by outlining the plot, but the characters were well defined and you felt like you knew them by the end of the book and are sorry to see your association with them - and the book - over. You'll wish you knew these people. If you're looking for a light book that isn't vapid, for an entertaining read with a plot and characters you'll think about during breaks in reading (the sign of a good read to me), then I recommend this book to you. The author has a fresh voice, resulting in a warm book that many people can relate to and enjoy. I sure hope she can write quickly, as I'll be waiting for her next book!

Family - Fabulous and Frustrating

Lyn, Cat and Gemma Kettle are approaching their 34th birthday together. These Aussie triplets may share a birthday, but they have their own very different personalities. Gemma floats through life and relationships. Lyn powers her way through her organized and efficient days. The fiercely emotional Cat does battle with co-workers, her husband, and her sisters. In the year surrounding this particular birthday, their lives are thrown upside down by various tragedies and joys and they struggle through as they always have - together. This heart-warming and heart-wrenching story is an impressive first book for Moriarty. She captures all the best and worst of family relationships - siblings, parents, spouses, and children - while balancing the heavy parts with funny bits of mayhem and wicked humor. The point of view alternates between the sisters and the story bounces back and forth in time, but never gets confusing. Interspersed between the chapters are little vignettes about how the triplets have touched the lives of strangers throughout the years. Moriarty's characters are just quirky enough to really care about without being absurd. I thought the flashbacks to the past did a wonderful job of showing how the sisters evolved into their separate personalities. Three Wishes is a fun, fascinating look into three lives that are inextricably entwined, and an insightful look at family relationships in general.
