Read The Party Online Free - In this stunning and provocative domestic drama about a sweet sixteen birthday party that goes horribly awry, a wealthy family in San Francisco finds their picture-perfect life unraveling, their darkest secrets revealed, and their friends turned to enemies.
One invitation. A lifetime of regrets.
Sweet sixteen. It’s an exciting coming of age, a milestone, and a rite of passage. Jeff and Kim Sanders plan on throwing a party for their daughter, Hannah—a sweet girl with good grades and nice friends. Rather than an extravagant, indulgent affair, they invite four girls over for pizza, cake, movies, and a sleepover. What could possibly go wrong?
But things do go wrong, horrifically so. After a tragic accident occurs, Jeff and Kim’s flawless life in a wealthy San Francisco suburb suddenly begins to come apart. In the ugly aftermath, friends become enemies, dark secrets are revealed in the Sanders’ marriage, and the truth about their perfect daughter, Hannah, is exposed.
Harkening to Herman Koch’s The Dinner, Christos Tsiolkas’s The Slap, and Liane Moriarty’s Big Little Lies, The Party takes us behind the façade of the picture-perfect family, exposing the lies, betrayals, and moral lapses that neighbors don’t see—and the secrets that children and parents keep from themselves and each other.

I bought this book on a whim. I think this is one of the first times in a long time that I didn't read any reviews before starting a book.

Why This Book
The publisher, Gallery Books, sent me a copy of this book either because I won a Goodreads Giveaway or they thought I might like the book (I get lots of books and I can't remember how this one came to me exactly). I'm trying to close up my 2017 Reading Challenge and clean off all...

“The police were here. They said what happened was a terrible accident, but we’re not responsible. We weren’t negligent. I mean, it’s not like it was a party party. There were only a few girls. We had no way of knowing they were planning to drink...”

2 1/2 but I'll bump it up to a 3 because it wasn't quite a 2.
I was lured into requesting this book from Netgalley when I received an email that promised me many juicy secrets and perfect people who behave very badly. I admit that I am a sucker for that kind of thing.
This is a great book to pick...

I got an advanced reader's copy of this book and raced through it. Good insight into both the parents and the kids affected by what went wrong at the party. A good summer read.

The Party was a much lighter mystery than I was expecting, I would even hesitate to label it a thriller as it’s lacking a true mystery or intensity that I believe would qualify it as such. It actually reminded me of Truly Madly Guilty in t...

I breezed through The Party, a book about a 16 year old birthday party that goes wrong, and the aftermath that ensues.
Parts of the book felt like contemporary fiction and others felt like a young adult book, due to the alternating viewpoints between the various parents and Hannah, the 16 year ol...

I'd give this book between a 2.5/5 and a 3/5. It's not a really bad read by any means - it honestly just fell flat for me. It was just too average. A lack of psychological insight, tension, and suspense makes this a tough read to g...

I was hesitant to pick up The Party, by Robyn Harding, based on a number of mediocre reviews I was reading. Well, now that I have finished, it just goes to show you that entertainment truly is in the eye of the reader because I loved this novel.
