Hidden under the shiny, light-hearted surface of a chick-lit suburban drama, Big Little Lies is a book of such depth and complexity it really surprised me. The suspense was richly developed, with comments from other parents and a count-down effect to the night the crime happens. And the characters – wow! – I felt like they were real people I might meet on the street or at the school gates
This is not a one-sit reading (at least it wasn’t for me!), but it is one of those books that deals with such rich themes and features such wonderful, enchanting characters that you keep going back to it like a familiar cafe or a soft blanket. It is truly a masterpiece.
A fabulous 5* read for me.
