Overview

Coming July 29, 2014, the new novel from Liane Moriarty, #1 New York Times–bestselling author of The Husband’s Secret

"What a wonderful writer—smart, wise, funny.” —Anne Lamott

Pirriwee Public’s annual school Trivia Night has ended in a shocking riot. One parent is dead. The school principal is horrified. As police investigate what appears to have been a tragic accident, signs begin to indicate that this devastating death might have been cold-blooded murder. 
 
In this thought-provoking novel, number-one New York Times–bestselling author Liane Moriarty deftly explores the reality of parenting and playground politics, ex-husbands and ex-wives, and fractured families.  And in her pitch-perfect way, she shows us the truth about what really goes on behind closed suburban doors.

     I received an advanced e-copy but had previously added it to my summer read list after I saw who wrote it
     (The Husband’s Secret).  I wish I had a copy to pass along to my friends – it is a superb read that you won’t
     put down.  Releasing July 29, just in time to turn up the heat on your summer “to read list” and the “dog days”
    of summer 2014.  Happy on the outside, behind closed doors of a suburban neighborhood, families who met
    because their children go to school together.  That little lie that happened years ago, has turned into a “Big Little
    Lie” that effects them all.  More little lies and more secrets changing not only one family, but several.  Truly
    an amazing read.

    A Powerful Drama of Secrets and Lies!

    After Liane Moriarty's famous The Husband’s Secret, comes BIG LITTLE LIES— a powerful novel and once again a group of women with secrets of tragedy and abuse, bearing the truths, holding nothing back--filled with humor and craziness in suburban Australia.

    Pirriwee Public's annual school Trivia Night has ended in a shocking riot. One parent is dead. The school principal is horrified. As police investigate what appears to have been a tragic accident, signs begin to indicate that this devastating death might have been cold-blooded murder.

    In this thought-provoking novel, we see the honesty, raw emotions, and realistic and sometimes dark side of parenting, ex-wives, ex-husbands, second wives, pasts which still haunt, bullying, domestic abuse, violence, politics, and dysfunctional families in every shape and form.

    Again, I enjoyed Caroline Lee, audiobook, performer, as she does not miss a beat with her stunning accent and stellar performance. She is quite the gifted actor and narrator who has worked extensively in theatre, film and television. Combined with talented author and writer, Moriarty, this makes for a dynamic duo. (highly recommend the audiobook, which will keep you entertained)!

    Liane’s style is unique, “all over the board”, with characters--at times--wild, crazy, quirky, troubled, and humorous. Reading/listening to her books is like being a bystander in a private home whenever no one thinks you are listening, or on a girl’s night out.

    Told from multiple POVs, BIG LITTLE LIES captures you from page one and leaves you hanging until the fate of each of the characters, building suspense for the climatic Trivia Night and events leading to this night. Throughout the book we hear from Madeline, Celeste, and Jane– three women with more in common than they may think.

    From the Australian setting to the fast pace, page-turner suspense drama, this novel will keep you on the edge, with razor sharp writing which sets this author apart, and does so with style, offering second chances for a satisfying read.

    I really enjoy Liane Moriarty's writing. She can write about a group of people, in such a way that all of them are easy to relate to and memorable. I am impressed with her style of writing.

    I loved The Husband's Secret and didn't think Big Little Lies would compare to Moriarty's mastery in Husband, however BLL far exceeded my expectations and had me hooked. Moriarty is a great writer in that she tells a story from multiple angles, but never loses her reader. I loved the surprises and twists BLL took me on and am already awaiting Moriarty's next novel!

    I have now read all of Laine Moriarty books. None of them are "copycats" of her previous novels. The character development is amazing. By the end of the book, all these "strangers" become real people with real life issues, even the "bad guys" evoke some sympathy.

    Exceptional!  All of her books have been excellent!  I know when I start one, I need to be prepared to put everything else aside because I am going to want to read, read, read.  I think this is one of my favorites so far.  The characters are interesting and complex.  These women exist everywhere and she nails the various types.  The complex relationships between exes, friends, parents, kids...it's all there and so true.  I enjoyed every page and so will you.

    Great Read!

    I enjoyed reading this book. I usually read, like Agatha Christie; however, her books are hard to find these days. So, I tried a new author out this time and found that I can enjoy books by other authors too. To my surprise, I found it difficult to put the book down. This is the first book I read through so quickly in a long time. I eagerly awaited the opportunity to find out the next events. It included mystery, drama--everything I like in a good book. It's definitely my kind of read. I think I will look for other books from this author in the future.

    A bit drawn out

    I had read the reviews for this book and couldn't wait to dive into it, but much to my dismay, boy did it drag on for 400 pages. It took me weeks to get through it.

    Good read

    This is a good read BUT not as good as Husband Secret. I think there was too much about child bullying. There were some slow parts but the ending was very good

    A wonderfully written story that had me drawn into it immediately.

    Lots of secrets lay in Pirriwee Peninsula. What you think you know about someone may not be true. What happens behind closed doors can be disturbing and frightening. One family's drama effects the children in Pirriwee Public School in ways no one would expect. The wives form friendships that cannot be broken. In the end, someone dies and the wives who know what happened stick together keeping the secret.

    This is a "must read book".
