I just finished my 5th book of the year. It was Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty. This was the second book of hers that I have read. She has a knack for storytelling. She has a special way of giving you a little bit and pulls you through the majority of a book with just little bits until you get to the peak of the story.
I find this tactic very challenging. It makes reading a book very hard for me. I desperately hold on trying to get to who, what, where and when. In both books it was worth the wait but it was a challenge to get past nonetheless.
The story circles around 3 women with different lifestyles, backgrounds and relationships. There's Jane the single mom new to the posh area looking for new beginnings and future lazy beach days. Madeline someone can appreciate hard work and education. A mom remarried and finding balance with your ex husband and his new family at your child's school. Lastly Celeste whom is the lady everyone wants to be. Wakes up perfect everyday, has the best house husband and a set of twins.
The story is filled with a swarm of kindergarten moms who actually behave worse then their kids. Who said their weren't clicks as an adult? These ladies support each other, encourage each other and backstab and murder for each other.
Overall I liked the book and would say it was a nice read but I hated the drawn out process. I just wanted to get to the point. The author has a fun dialogue with other characters in the book and once I caught on I could see how the book was going to continue so expectations were controlled but I would have like more information prior to the climax of the story.
Have you read this book? Did you enjoy it?
