Big Little Lies follows three women, each at a crossroads:Madeline is a force to be reckoned with. Shes funny and biting, passionate, she remembers everything and forgives no one. Her ex-husband and his yogi new wife have moved into her beloved beachside community, and their daughter is in the same kindergarten class as Madelines youngest (how is this possible?). And to top it all off,Madelines teenage daughter seems to be choosing Madelines ex-husband over her. (How. Is. This. Possible?).Celeste is the kind of beautiful woman who makes the world stop and stare. While she may seem a bit flustered at times, who wouldnt be, with those rambunctious twin boys? Now that the boys are starting school, Celeste and her husband look set to become the king and queen of the school parent body. But royalty often comes at a price, and Celeste is grappling with how much more she is willing to pay.New to town, single mom Jane is so young that another mother mistakes her for the nanny. Jane is sad beyond her years and harbors secret doubts about her son. But why? While Madeline and Celeste soon take Jane under their wing, none of them realizes how the arrival of Jane and her inscrutable little boy will affect them all.Big Little Lies is a brilliant take on ex-husbands and second wives, mothers and daughters, schoolyard scandal, and the dangerous little lies we tell ourselves just to survive....

Big Little Lies Reviews
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!
I didn't think that I would ever finish this audiobook. I liked this story, but it took a long time for me to get into. Initially, I had a hard time keeping the mothers and their children straight. Once I had finally got that straight, the story seemed to move a long a little faster, but not by much. I know a lot of people loved this book, but I guess it just didn't knock my socks off. I had high hopes for this book and feel a little let down. It was good, but not as great as I'd been expecting. ...more
No lie...I loved this book :)
I read this book almost exactly a year ago. I didn't write a review as back then I usually updated that I read a book and gave it a rating. Plus it had a zillion ratings so I didn't bother. Looking at the reviews it seems to have quite a range of ratings.
But recently I decided to write a short one as I recently heard what I thought was exciting news. Well exciting for me as a lover of this book!!
I was looking through the new line-up of fall TV shows and came across ...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:

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

I was SO not expecting to love this as much as I did. dang.
*review (still) to come*
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
