Book: Big Little Lies
Author: Liane Moriarty
Genre: Adult, Contemporary, Mystery
I seen this book floating around for a few years now and never have the desire to pick it up. I watched the first two episode’s of the show and I was dying to know what happened. So I rushed out get myself a copy of the book. I took off half a star because I found the beginning to be slow-paced.
The character development in this book is crazy, they were all flawed yet smart and funny.I have to admit my favorite was Madeline. Oh man, she is funny. She stands up for her friends and goes after what she believes in. Her relationships felt real and not forced. Strong female friendships! Madeline and Celeste, then enters Jane and they embrace her. Jane is a single mother entering a community of rich beautiful women, instead of letting her be left out Madeline tugs her into her life.
The book on the surface seems to be about a group of kindergarten mom’s and there children. It’s so much more. It’s told from different perspectives, which I love. I love knowing what everyone is thinking and how an event can been seen in so many different ways. The book keeps the identity of the victim and the murderer hidden right until the end.
“Everyone wanted to be rich and beautiful, but the truly rich and beautiful had to pretend they were just the same as everyone else.”
“All conflict can be traced back to someone’s feelings getting hurt, don’t you think?”
