Frequently bought together
“If you're looking for a novel that will turn you into a compulsive book-finisher look no further. Moriarty has produced another gripping, satirical hit...It’s can’t-put-downability comes from its darker subplots...A book that will make you appreciate the long days of summer.”—Oprah.com
"The secrets burrowed in this seemingly placid small town...are so suburban noir they would make David Lynch clap with glee...[Moriarty] is a fantastically nimble writer, so sure-footed that the book leaps between dark and light seamlessly; even the big reveal in the final pages feels earned and genuinely shocking.”—Entertainment Weekly
“Reading one [of Liane Moriarty's novels] is a bit like drinking a pink cosmo laced with arsenic...a fun, engaging and sometimes disturbing read…Moriarty is back in fine form.”—USA Today
“A hell of a good book. Funny and scary.”—Stephen King
“Ms. Moriarty’s long-parched fans have something new to dig into...Big Little Lies [may have] even more staying power than The Husband’s Secret.”—The New York Times
“Big Little Lies tolls a warning bell about the big little lies we tell in order to survive. It takes a powerful stand against domestic violence even as it makes us laugh at the adults whose silly costume party seems more reminiscent of a middle-school dance.”—The Washington Post
“Irresistible…Moriarty’s sly humor and razor-sharp insights will keep you turning pages.”—People
“Funny and thrilling, page-turning but with emotional depth, Big Little Lies is a terrific follow-up to The Husband’s Secret.”—Booklist (starred review)

** CONTENT SPOILER ALERT **
** spoiler alert ** At first, I really did not like the characters. I found Madeline very irritating and a typical housewife. Once I understood her relationship with Abagail I could see why Madeline and Jane become instant friends. My favourite character was Celeste by far. I really felt bad for her the entire book. I really did not see Perry being Ziggy's father. That was an excellent twist and very well done.

There is some clever structure to the mystery but as it progresses it becomes absolutely clear this is a major sickly sweet 'feel good' tale with a super happy ending (apart from the one body). All the little sub plots start to tie up soooo perfectly you know the dead person is going to be the one character who most deserves it - so the only tension is who kills the bastard. Credit where due the whodunit twist is quite good but by the time it came I was choking on sweet sick from all the other niceness.
There are some dialogue issues as well, for example the main characters keep saying 'Oh calamity' which would be okay if the calamity were a minor issue like a stubbed toe but when the subject is sexual or domestic violence it doesn't fit.
I understand feel good tales have happy endings but this is all too neat to be credible. As a final point within this fairly woeful book the issue of domestic violence is dealt with quite well - it's a shame there are some good ideas here, a good context but the delivery is lacking and 'feel good' factor is way too over sugared.
you read it). The experience is weirdly akin to when you go to a hotel. When you first get to a hotel room you get to know your way around, find the slippers, the safe... Then once you change into your swimsuit, go for a swim and have a nice shower you feel like you've properly moved in... This book felt like the "just arrived" feeling of getting to a hotel room and never felt like I'd properly moved in... Until it was time to check out and you'd wonder where the time went! I wonder if anyone felt the same!!
