Big Little Lies
Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty, read by Caroline Lee, is an extraordinary book deserving of its place on many 2014 must-read lists. Set in an Australian suburb, it’s a story about three women that meet at their children’s kindergarten orientation and become friends. Clues and innuendo lead the reader to believe a tragic event has occurred during a school parent get-together. All who attended the event are interrogated by the police in short interviews and the timeline alternates between past and present. Big Little Lies touches on divorce, single parenting, domestic violence, and even the politics of elementary school hierarchy. While I suspected the outcome early, I still have a positive opinion and found listening to the book well worth my time.
