Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty
After reading Gone Girl, I thought that no other murder mystery book would be able to compare. I was wrong!
Moriarty’s writing style and the creative plot makes this one a page-turner. Little by little, the reader discovers clues to this murder mystery through flashbacks and snippets of police interviews.
The truth hits hard for these characters, and the reader can’t help but feel their pain each step of the way. Although the characters in this book are overly dramatic, which in my opinion, Moriarty purposely exaggerates the personalities and circumstances the characters are given for the reader’s enjoyment, are somehow all relatable in one way or another in the way they make decisions and rationalize.
You really can’t help but empathize with these characters, but you can’t help but judge them at the same time. All in all, I would highly recommend this book!
