BATR Book Club: Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty
(Read my Judging A Book post about this book here.)
This book was so good, and kept me guessing until the very end!
The main characters are incredibly complex and so different from each other- you have Madeline, who is this slightly crazed mom who is dealing with her ex-husband's new wife and her teenage daughter, Celeste who seems to have the idea life as a rich stay-at-home mom, and Jane, who is a single mom to a little boy who is accused of being a bully.
There are many other characters, but those three are who the story centers around. The story as a whole centers around characters that have children in Kindergarten.
Also, this story takes place in Australia, which I didn't know when this first started. Not that it's a huge part of the story, but it is something they mention.
You know almost right away that there is a death in this story, but I could not figure it out the whole story. I know what I was hoping for, but I just didn't know. But I did out loud say "OMG" when it happened. And when another reveal happens- I did NOT see it coming, at all. I was in absolute shock.
(I talk a lot when I read books, and laugh. It's just a thing I do. Like the characters can hear me or something...)
This wasn't a quick read by any means (the book is 480 pages!) but it didn't feel like a long read, either.
I gave this book a solid four stars on Goodreads. I really liked it and it kept me interested.
