I was very put off initially by the writing device of letting you know a little of the ending and then starting at the beginning and letting the story unfold, with a further disclosure about the ending at the end of every chapter. My irritation lasted for the first third of the book until I was finally so caught up in the story that I was eager to keep reading. When the ending did come, despite all the hints, I was caught completely off guard and it all worked. Ultimately, it was a very satisfying read for me.

Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty starts off with the revelation that a death has occurred. The reader knows where and when. But not who, how, and why? It takes the rest of the over 450 pages of this book to reveal that. The beginning sections of the book set up the characters and the plot. The ending specifically highlights the serious issues being addressed and resolves the mystery. The center sections just seem a bit too long.

I don't understand AT ALL why this book got any 4 or 5 stars for it? It didn't take very long to be bored to tears, the writing was awful, and where in the world did this take place--London, Sweden, Africa, Timbuktu? It only took 3 chapters to dislike these characters to the point of hating them, and again the writing was just awful. I was amazed the reviews made it past a 2, and NO I didn't finish it, I thought-well I guess you can tell what I thought!

If there are actually any mothers anywhere that talk like this then it must be on Mars.
