Goodreads Synopsis
A murder…A tragic accident…Or just parents behaving badly? What’s indisputable is that someone is dead.

Madeline is a force to be reckoned with. She’s 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 mom 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.

My Take

Big Little Lies was quite the read. I remember picking up the book so that I can watch the TV show after, and I had a pinch me moment of “why hadn’t I read this sooner?”
The book is largely character based, which I didn’t mind because Liane Moriarty depicts them so well! She found a way to make them relatable in such a way that had me seeing bits of myself in them.
Big Little Lies, just like the title says, is has a plot linked with little lies, that made it all interesting. The story drips with both suspense and surprise that make it so thrilling, I was hooked!

“Lies get complicated”

Liane Moriarty’s writing is easy to follow a long. I found the book to be more of a cozy mystery than a Thriller but I liked it all the same.

If you’re looking for a fast paced book that will hook you from the first page till the last, then this is for you.
