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 you had hoped for something more from the much-lauded Landline, look no further than Liane Moriarty. She writes well-plotted, engrossing, and incredibly funny stories with believable women that also happen to put marriage and friendship under a microscope. Every book I've read by this author has been terrific.
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
Liane Moriarty has done it again – written a book that kept me up way too late because I couldn’t put it down. She has a knack for creating characters who are so believable they could easily be someone you know. Big Little Lies is a story of parents acting badly. It is also a smart and witty story about the real lives of children, teens, friends, husbands, wives, second wives, and exes. You are teased from the beginning with something awful that happens at the annual Pirriwee Public School fund ...more
Let's sum up this book with two words:
What a pleasant surprise. When I picked this up I expected some sorts of a predictable, dull book about lies and family, etc. What I read though far exceeds those two. It's more of a family thriller. What does that mean? I just came up with it. It's about the horrors between families, the hardships. Not just the good stuff, leaving out all the bad.
Mrs. Moriarty takes care to include everything in this book. From teenage nightmares to the u ...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*
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
I thought, first off the bat, that the three main characters of Jane, Celeste, and Madeline sound a bit like one person. Sure, Madeline curses a lot, but the inner emotions of each is not so different from the others.
This hiccup aside, the rest of the inhabitants, their relationships with each other is presented with almost scientific relish. The author is very much on top of her game, and I don't know how can she top this book. It's an original take on an old idea which is an endorsement, make ...more
You know how sometimes you get to the end of a book and you wish you could wipe it from your mind, just so you could have the pleasure of reading it for the first time again?
This is one of those books.
I can't think of another author off the top of my head who does relationships so well and with such humour as Liane Moriarty. Her characters love and laugh, rub each other up the wrong way, extend the hand of friendship, spread gossip, resolve to do better, cry and keep secrets -- just like real pe ...more
