The Trivia Night by Ali Lowe

Have you ever found yourself so engrossed in a book that you just can’t put it down? The Trivia Night, the debut novel by journalist Ali Lowe, is exactly that type of book. Filled with juicy drama, innuendo, and scandal, The Trivia Night is a thrilling addition to the popular domestic noir category.

A Glimpse into the World of Wealthy School Communities

The Trivia Night takes readers on a journey into the lives of the parents in an affluent Sydney school community. However, not everything is as it seems, especially when the school’s big event, a trivia night, turns out to be a cover-up. With gossip, scandal, and love swaps involved, the trivia night becomes an evening to remember. But when the dust settles, those who made reckless choices must face the consequences.

A Solid Read with Multiple Perspectives

Structured in three different forms of narration that are shared across the novel, The Trivia Night is a well-placed tale. Moving deftly between key characters Amanda, Alice, and Zoe, the novel places the reader in the thick of the action. The movement between each respective narrator provides a varied perspective on the suggestive events of this tale. From start to finish, readers are directly involved in the antics of this school community and the tangled mess that ensues.

A Strong Voice in the Genre

Domestic noir queens Liane Moriarty and Sally Hepworth have paved the way for new authors in this genre, and Ali Lowe is a fresh voice in the Australian domestic area. Lowe’s twenty-year strong career in journalism is evident in The Trivia Night. For a first-time novelist, her writing is polished, well-structured, and highly readable. The book features a pitch-perfect pace, with explosive twists, unexpected turns, and shocking movements that keep readers hooked.

A Deliciously Addictive Debut

The Trivia Night is a potboiler that readers will completely consume. It’s risqué, exciting, and tense, making it a perfect addition to the ever-growing division of contemporary fiction. Seasoned domestic drama readers will find The Trivia Night on par with other well-received novels in this crowded market. But even if you’re new to the genre, there’s something about this book that will hook you and keep you reading until the very end.

A Highly Recommended Read

With a handy contents page and table plan, The Trivia Night is a well-organized novel that knows how to engage its readers. I found much to enjoy in The Trivia Night and highly recommend it. It’s a sensational addition to the domestic noir category, and I’ll be eagerly awaiting Ali Lowe’s next release.
