Big Little Lies Reviews
This book was perfect. Yes, I had a couple of reservations initially. Lunches and coffees at the cafe, almost daily?? (Only cause I can't do it!). All the chatter about heels and fashion and this and that. But!! Liane Moriarty captured the internal dialogue perfectly, amazingly. So many times the mums were thinking things that do happen. The internal thoughts were spot on. Image, rivalry, one-up-manship, self perception and the shakey ground that so many girls and women find themselves in in reg ...more
Note: To My friends I've already had discussions about this book 'while' reading it (several of us were reading it together) -- You might be surprise to see me giving this book 3 Stars.
I'm sure you thought I might give it 1 star --or 2 stars. I was planning on it!!!! I think there are TONS of PROBLEMS with this novel ---and there is MUCH I DO NOT LIKE about this BOOK --
However --Approx. the last 58 pages make a strong 'punch' --my rating goes UP.
First let me talk about the problems:

full review to come
Big Little Lies is an engaging story filled with murder and mystery, centering on the lives of three “school moms” and their problematic circumstances.
I've never watched the show, but this book gave me a sort of sinister, Desperate Housewives vibe.
This story is told in third-person narrative and methodically shifts focus between these three unstable women as the plot slowly creeps up to the night of the murder.
The writing was fantastic: Intelligent, realistic, and held my interest prett ...more
I think Stephen King summed up Big Little Lies perfectly when he said it is "a hell of a book, funny and scary." I found it to be like the first two seasons of Desperate Housewives before the show started to slowly fall apart (and I've seen every episode so I feel like I'm right... right about the comparison to the book and the fact that the show was never all that great after the first two seasons, but the bigger question is why did I watch all of the show in the first place, and I'll never rea ...more
You know how sometimes you get to the end of a book and you wish you could wipe it from your mind, just so you could have the pleasure of reading it for the first time again?
This is one of those books.
I can't think of another author off the top of my head who does relationships so well and with such humour as Liane Moriarty. Her characters love and laugh, rub each other up the wrong way, extend the hand of friendship, spread gossip, resolve to do better, cry and keep secrets -- just like real pe ...more
I enjoyed this a lot more than I thought I would!
Can't wait to watch the TV series!
UPDATE: The TV series isn't as good as the book. The ending was disappointing compare to it!
