OMG. Definitely one of my favorite books so far this year! I ended up listing it in the reading challenge as 'a book that's becoming a movie in 2017.' I think it's more accurately called a mini-series, but close enough. Hubby and I are done with the first three episodes on HBO so far, and the finale was actually broadcast last night.
I read Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty because I LOVE book and movie combos, and people were starting to talk about the show. Luckily, but book was in a box of books from my mom, and she's a recent Liane Moriarty fan, so several books are by her.
I loved the characters, even the ones you love to hate. And the mini-series is doing a great job with them too, I think. Characters are truly what draws me into a book, and I loved the way they were developed in this book. I keep saying I feel bad for hubby for watching the show with me, as I'm continually commenting on their back story, or how they really think/feel during a particular scene. Because I've read the book, so now they're my friends. LOL
This book made me laugh, cry, and shout out loud (much to the dismay of my kids trying to watch their tv shows in the same room). I would definitely recommend it as a great book to escape real life and be entertained for a few hours.
