    Inhaltsangabe

    Oliver Marks has just served 10 years in jail - for a murder he may or may not have committed. On the day he's released, he's greeted by the man who put him in prison. Detective Colborne is retiring, but before he does, he wants to know what really happened a decade ago.

    As one of seven young actors studying Shakespeare at an elite arts college, Oliver and his friends play the same roles onstage and off: hero, villain, tyrant, temptress. But when the casting changes, and the secondary characters usurp the stars, the plays spill dangerously over into life, and one of them is found dead. The rest face their greatest acting challenge yet: convincing the police, and themselves, that they are blameless. Intelligent, thrilling, and richly detailed, If We Were Villains is a captivating story of the enduring power and passion of words.

    Kritikerstimmen

    "Much like Donna Tartt's The Secret History, M. L. Rio's sparkling debut is a richly layered story of love, friendship, and obsession.... If We Were Villains will keep you riveted through its final, electrifying moments." (Cynthia D'Aprix Sweeney, New York Times best-selling author of The Nest)

    10/10 cried on the bathroom floor

    "You are the knife I turn inside myself; that is love. That, my dear, is love."
    - Franz Kafka, Letters to Milena
    This book thoroughly wrecked me. I finished it and immediately started listening to it again, because I wanted there to be something else. Listen to it, it is absolutely worth it!

    I love it.

    It makes you suffer and feel, laugh and cry.
    The ending broke me.
    Thank you for that.

    One of my abosulte favourites

    When it comes to dark academia, I find it very hard to find books that manage to capture me with their characters and plot. Most of the time they end up being too pretentious or suffer from bad writing. This book, however, was everything I wanted it to be. The strong point of this book are definitely the wide range of characters. The only thing that bothered me a bit was that the commited crime (, which I thought would play a greater role) faded in the back and seemed not so important anymore, which was a questionable choice. Regardless of that, I think this book is even better than 'The Secret History'.

    Love

    I've loved this book beginning to end. The characters draw you in, make you guess. Your heart will ache for them, break for them. It's compelling, every word, highly recommend it.
