Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty
ABOUT THE BOOK
A murder… A tragic accident… Or just parents behaving badly? What is indisputable is that someone is dead.
Big Little Lies will take you on a roller coaster ride with the secrets of the three women.
Madeline is a force to be reckoned with. She is funny, biting, and passionate; she remembers everything and forgives no one. Celeste is the kind of beautiful woman who makes the world stop and stare but she is paying a price for the illusion of perfection. New to town, single mum Jane is so young that another mother mistakes her for a nanny. She comes with a mysterious past and a sadness beyond her years. These three women are at different crossroads, but they will all wind up in the same shocking place.
Big Little Lies is a brilliant take on ex-husbands and second wives, mothers and daughters, schoolyard scandal, and the little lies that can turn lethal.
We all thoroughly enjoyed the book. The format was engaging and the reader was hooked by the comments and different perspectives.
The story tackled the difficult topics of domestic violence, sadism, pride and power control but it was balanced with humour and the power and importance of love and deep friendships.
The author has a deep understanding of family relationships and playground politics and we all laughed at and appreciated her insight.
