Big Little Lies follows three women, each at a crossroads:Madeline is a force to be reckoned with. Shes funny and biting, passionate, she remembers everything and forgives no one. Her ex-husband and his yogi new wife have moved into her beloved beachside community, and their daughter is in the same kindergarten class as Madelines youngest (how is this possible?). And to top it all off,Madelines teenage daughter seems to be choosing Madelines ex-husband over her. (How. Is. This. Possible?).Celeste is the kind of beautiful woman who makes the world stop and stare. While she may seem a bit flustered at times, who wouldnt be, with those rambunctious twin boys? Now that the boys are starting school, Celeste and her husband look set to become the king and queen of the school parent body. But royalty often comes at a price, and Celeste is grappling with how much more she is willing to pay.New to town, single mom Jane is so young that another mother mistakes her for the nanny. Jane is sad beyond her years and harbors secret doubts about her son. But why? While Madeline and Celeste soon take Jane under their wing, none of them realizes how the arrival of Jane and her inscrutable little boy will affect them all.Big Little Lies is a brilliant take on ex-husbands and second wives, mothers and daughters, schoolyard scandal, and the dangerous little lies we tell ourselves just to survive....

Big Little Lies Reviews
If I said I loved this one, it would be a Big Fat Lie. But I definitely LIKED it, despite the rough beginning.
Here is my love story with Moriarty books, and it doesn’t stay all lovey-dovey, I’ll tell you that. But that sounds dramatic—I need to say that I don’t hate her books now, it’s just that the honeymoon is way over. I became an avid fan after reading What Alice Forgot, which is about a woman who hits her head and forgets her identity. I thought it was completely brilliant, and it made me t ...more
"A murder. A tragic accident....
Someone is dead. But who did what?"
WOAHHHH!!!! This book was freaking amazing!!!
It was a total genre change for me -- this is women's fiction and mystery, not romance -- but I was just in the kind of mood where I was craving something totally different than what I usually read.... so I tried this one! And I was BEYOND impressed with it.
Like holy WOW impressed.
The writing was fantastic — starkly honest, detailed, introspective, observant, multi-sided… the s ...more
No, I haven’t seen the TV show. This book is fine. It’s certainly readable and hard to put down. I enjoyed reading Big Little Lies. But it’s shallow. Yes, it deals with domestic violence and sexual assault and the pressures and pettiness of white middle class and upper class womanhood when it comes to their social lives and their children and so on, but everything here is easy, frothy. And that’s fine. Not every book needs to carry the weight of the world. But at the same time, some of what this ...more
this book made me losing my mind all the time just i wanna know who doing this to Amabella and after all that this book just hit me in the face and said *surprise mother fuckers*
I had Big Little Lies buried on my to-read list for over a year. I want to thank one of my lovely Goodreads friends Suzanne for suggesting I push it to the top of the mountain.
Big Little Lies is a several-month slice of life in the universe of grade school parents in a coastal town located in Australia. Not having children, this setting fascinated me, especially since it was nothing like when I was a grade schooler in the late 1950s/1960s in Tennessee. Parents did not get into heavy politics an ...more
Big Little Lies is an engaging story filled with murder and mystery, centering on the lives of three “school moms” and their problematic circumstances.
I've never watched the show, but this book gave me a sort of sinister, Desperate Housewives vibe.
This story is told in third-person narrative and methodically shifts focus between these three unstable women as the plot slowly creeps up to the night of the murder.
The writing was fantastic: Intelligent, realistic, and held my interest prett ...more
Probably the funniest book about murder and domestic abuse I'll ever read.
Loved this book more after the show and a re/read
I love how the three women became close friends. I loved how Madeline took Jane and Ziggy in and was a truly great friend. And she's funny too.
Madeline has a husband and three kids, one of which she shares with her ex-husband. She's not happy about any of this but it is what it is. And it makes her a bit crazy which is understandable.
Jane is a single mom to Ziggy whom she loves very much. Jane's has a sad story too but I'm so glad she had so ma ...more
