        I've been told this is "chicklit". So I don't think it is book club material.

          This book was recommended by my sister. Bought a copy asap and was not disappointed. Every time I thought I had solved the mystery there was another twist. This book kept me engaged for the weekend.

              This was a great fun read. It was a light page turner and I was sorry when I'd finished it. The day later I was thinking about the deeper subject matter as well.

              Comments about Big Little Lies:

              This book appeals to middle class white women who may be able to relate to the issues and topics of the book. Frankly I found the book boring and flipped through many pages to get to the end only to find a cliched twist that for those of us use to reading lots of books, could see coming. It's a simple writing style with a moving plot so you're engaged in the story but you hit yourself for settling for populist dribble. Of course Nicole Kidman would be interested in producing this as a film- it speaks to her kith and kin.
