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.
