Recent Read: Big Little Lies

So I recently (as in less than an hour ago) finished Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty.

I had never read anything by her before and this one sounded more intriguing than her previous hit, The Husband’s Secret. The book did not disappoint. From Goodreads book site

While the chapters were short, the characters were unique and had their own personalities that leapt off the page at you. The plot centers around a murder at a primary school fundraiser event and begins with the event, without disclosing the victim. The book then flashes back to months prior and builds to the night of and then progresses to what occurs after the tragedy. (Or is it a tragedy?)

I was pleasantly surprised by this book. I was worried it was a bit more “mom literature” in the sense that it was something you would expect a middle-aged housewife to read more than someone in their mid-20s.

But a good book can be read and appreciated by all ages and this was certainly that.

If you enjoy a good mystery and don’t mind a setting of Australia, this is definitely a chance worth taking.
