Big Little Lies By Liane Moriarty – Book Review #22

Big Little Lies

I saw a preview for a TV show called Big Little Lies. I knew it was the kind of show I’d enjoy. Before I watched the show, I wanted to read the book.

A few days later I got an email from NetGalley, offering me a free download in return for a review so here are!

It took me longer to read than usual but only because I’ve been so busy. If I’d have had the time, I’d have read it in a day or two. I hated having to keep putting it down!

The thing I loved most was the fact that you didn’t know who the victim was all the way through the book. I found myself hoping it wouldn’t be certain characters.

The friendship between Jane, Madeline and Celeste was lovely. It made you want to be in their circle, going through the ups and downs of life with them by your side.

It’s rare to find a book about a murder where the actual victim isn’t revealed until the end of the book. I liked that it kept me guessing.

It was very funny in parts, not so in others. I really can’t wait to see how it translated to the screen.

    I’ve just read The Husband’s Secret by the same author and this one is on my list. The TV series was fab! #readwithme

    I hadn’t heard there was a TV show. I read the book not long after it came out. I really enjoyed it, even though it isn’t my usual sort of read.

    Hadn’t heard of the book or tv show. Certainly sounds a different twist not knowing the victim until later #readwithme

    I watched the TV show and think I would have enjoyed the book more. I felt the show was a bit slow and overly dramatised to allow the actors lots of time to show off their facial expressions. I reckon this is one where the book is probably better. #readwithme

    This book sounds interesting. I can’t imagine reading a book and not finding out who the victim is until the end!

    I’ve seen a lot of people talking about the tv show but I’ve not watched and I haven’t got around to reading the book yet, popping on to my TBR list 🙂 thanks for sharing with #readwithme
