Mobi Big Little Lies

Big Little LiesTh how much she is willing to payNew 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 UPDATE June 2019 Season 2 begins Sunday June 9 on HBO ueen Meryl Streep is part of the show now Read why she joined the cast I said I loved this one it would be a Big Fat Lie But I definitely LIKED it despite the rough beginning Here is my love story with Moriarty books and it doesn’t stay all lovey dovey I’ll tell you that But that sounds dramatic—I need to say that I don’t hate her books now it’s just that the honeymoon is way over I became an avid fan after reading What Alice Forgot which is about a woman who hits her head and forgets her identity I thought it was completely brilliant and it made me think High from that experience I then went on to The Husband's Secret Since I couldn’t forget What Alice Forgot and I thought Moriarty could do no wrong I glistened and glowed about that book too even though the spark had started to go out a little if I had been honest with myself I was still euphoric from the first book and didn’t want to admit that the second one wasn’t as good Whereas What Alice Forgot made me ponder ideas about memory and identity for example there was no such hook in The Husband’s Secret It was a good book and I enjoyed reading it but it was definitely lighter I anxiously awaited Big Little Lies After I’d read the first few chapters of Big Little Lies I had to admit I just wasn’t wowed First off two of the main characters seemed really superficial I asked myself do I have to hang out with these rich beautiful and self absorbed airheads who are taking this kindergarten thing way too seriously I was beginning to understand why Moriarty’s books are often categorized as chick lit Plus there was a stylistic gimmick a sort of Greek chorus that I hated because it made the book confusing The story is about three moms whose kids are entering the same kindergarten class We learn right away that there has been a scandalous death The way we learn about the death is through gossipy conversations like little asides splashed throughout the story It’s these little asides that I had trouble with Each comment has a name preceding it and there are too many names to keep track of It drove me nuts But wait was I supposed to actually keep track of them or ignore which gossiper said what and just concentrate on the gossip itself It wasn’t clear what I was supposed to do and that sucked It was just too much work which made it impossible to have a smooth reading experience Moriarty you shouldn’t make the reader work that hard It should be a seamless experience I was pissed that there were all these unknown and undeveloped characters whispering important secrets It’s hard to sit still and enjoy the gossip if you’re busy trying to figure out who’s who I eventually recognized some of the people but still some of the gossipers weren’t real players in the drama so why give them names It was a stylistic techniue that didn’t work for me On paper it’s a cool way to dole out clues but maybe it has to look different Maybe the author should have made some or all of the whisperers anonymous I don’t know It just drove me crazy I don’t know why I’m poo poo’ing this book so much because I did end up liking it As the book progressed what I thought were shallow characters became way complicated and interesting—and I did get invested in all of them And really a lot of important issues are addressed domestic violence bullying rape and teenagers posting scary shit on the web The way the characters handle these issues is realistic and satisfying without being predictable sappy or preachy And there’s lots of suspense—I always looked forward to opening the book; it soon moved into the “juicy read” category The story is rich and it’s twisty as all get out The ending is very satisfying and everything is tied up nicely One final complaint though the book is way too long This should have been a 250 or 300 pager; it’s not epic or important or engaging enough to warrant 480 pagesFinal verdict It took me a while to get into it and trust that Moriarty was once again going to spin a good yarn And she does That little imitation Greek chorus thing made me knock the rating down to 3 stars But ah shucks I really do like you Moriarty even if I did feel compelled to go back and remove one of my stars for The Husband’s SecretUpdate March 2017Catch the 8 part HBO series if you can it's on the 5th segment but some of you with HBO might be able to watch the earlier segments It stars Reese Witherspoon Nicole Kidman and Laura Dern all are excellent and it's filmed in beautiful Monterey I'm loving it; like it better than the book And the Greek chorus works way better I even downloaded the theme song
