      Comments about Big Little Lies:

      This book is everything i was led to believe, i purchased it when i started to watch the show on Foxtel, however I'm finding the book quite engaging and the settings are different in the book to the show, its a page turner which i have committed to reading for an hour each day to unwind from the day.

            Comments about Big Little Lies:

            I purchased this to read before the series started. I was drawn into the story immediately and couldn't put it down, and cannot wait to firstly watch the series and secondly read more books by this author! The characters were interesting and intriguing, hit the mark with primary school mum-life with humour, candour and a tiny bit of tenderness. I enjoyed the format of story telling interspersed with comments from the characters' investigation interviews, leading to the 'big thing' end of the story We all know at least one of the characters that made me laugh, gasp in horror and feel genuine heartbreak.

                      An engaging read with plausible characters. A great holiday read or some mid week escapism.

                        Her characters are spot on, and real. I'm sure most families can find a bit of themselves-and sometimes squirm a little. How you would respond to life's moral questions gets you thinking too.
