Big Little Lies Book Summary


Check out the #1 New York Times bestseller Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty, called “a surefire hit” by Entertainment Weekly.

"The secrets burrowed in this seemingly placid small town...are so suburban noir they would make David Lynch clap with glee...[Moriarty] is a fantastically nimble writer, so sure-footed that the book leaps between dark and light seamlessly; even the big reveal in the final pages feels earned and genuinely shocking.” —Entertainment Weekly

"Reading one [of Liane Moriarty's novels] is a bit like drinking a pink cosmo laced with arsenic... [BIG LITTLE LIES] is a fun, engaging and sometimes disturbing read” –USA Today


Sometimes it’s the little lies that turn out to be the most lethal. . . .

A murder… . . . a tragic accident… . . . or just parents behaving badly?
What’s indisputable is that someone is dead.
But who did what?

Big Little Lies follows three women, each at a crossroads:

Madeline is a force to be reckoned with. She’s funny and biting, passionate, she remembers everything and forgives no one. Her ex-husband and his yogi new wife have moved into her beloved beachside community, and their daughter is in the same kindergarten class as Madeline’s youngest (how is this possible?). And to top it all off, Madeline’s teenage daughter seems to be choosing Madeline’s ex-husband over her. (How. Is. This. Possible?).

Celeste is the kind of beautiful woman who makes the world stop and stare. While she may seem a bit flustered at times, who wouldn’t be, with those rambunctious twin boys? Now that the boys are starting school, Celeste and her husband look set to become the king and queen of the school parent body. But royalty often comes at a price, and Celeste is grappling with how much more she is willing to pay.

New to town, single mom Jane is so young that another mother mistakes her for the nanny. Jane is sad beyond her years and harbors secret doubts about her son. But why? While Madeline and Celeste soon take Jane under their wing, none of them realizes how the arrival of Jane and her inscrutable little boy will affect them all.

Big Little Lies is a brilliant take on ex-husbands and second wives, mothers and daughters, schoolyard scandal, and the dangerous little lies we tell ourselves just to survive.

Big Little Lies - Liane Moriarty Reviews

  • Pretty Good

    This book started out relatively slowly. Took a little bit of time to get into it. But just past the middle, it begins to pick up and is hard to put down at all. The book just barely sheds light on domestic violence in all socio-economic statuses. I wish it had gone a little further in but hopefully this at least will spark conversations around the world.

    Like many of my favorite books, I saw the tv show or movie first, then read the book. As soon as I heard Alexander Skarsgard was part of the cast, there was no way I was going to miss this show!!! "Big Little Lies" sucked me in within the first ten minutes and I ordered the book the next day!!!! Just ONE of the many reasons I love this story is that just when you think you know what's going to happen, SURPRISE, something that probably never crossed your mind happens. Excellent writing, acting, editing & story. It keeps you on the edge of your seat throughout the entire story, never a dull moment. I was so upset the series was so short. Once I started reading the book I realized why they made the mini-series. Every time I'm about to get to the end of a chapter, I think "ok, this is the last chapter for tonight" then when I get to the end, I read the next one, and the process continues lol Great book and show!
