Big Little Lies Review
Sorry, no Man Crush Monday today. Instead, here’s a book review!
Title: Big Little Lies
Author: Liane Moriarty
Genre: Drama, Fiction
Published by: G.P. Putnam’s Sons on July 29, 2014
This book took longer to suck me in than most of her books. I’m not sure why. I guess it was difficult to follow all the different characters at first. By the end of the book, though, I was doing my typical, “Oh my gosh! I can’t believe what she just revealed!” like I do with most Moriarty books.
This story was mainly about three different women who all have children in kindergarten at the same time. Madeleine is remarried with two children and a third from her previous marriage. Unfortunately, her ex-husband and his new wife, Bonnie, live in the same town as her and their younger daughter is in the same class as Madeleine’s younger daughter. Madeleine can feel her older daughter, Abigail, slipping away from her, impressed by Bonnie’s new age lifestyle.
Celeste and Perry have what appears to be a perfect marriage. Perry is very successful and makes more money than they know what to do with. They have twin boys. Jane recently moved to the area. She’s a single mother of one son, Ziggy.
This book has mommy drama, bullying, relationship drama, etc., but I can’t say too much without giving some of the book’s surprises away. It was my least favorite of her books so far, only because it took me a while to get into. Still, I would recommend this book for fans of women’s fiction and drama. Moriarty is an awesome author.
