The new novel from the author of The Husband’s Secret A #1 New York Times Bestseller Sometimes it’s the little lies that turn out to be the most lethal. A murder…A tragic accident…Or just parents behaving badly? What’s indisputable is that someone is dead. Madeline is a force to be reckoned with. She’s funny, biting, and passionate; she remembers everything and forgives no one. Celeste is the kind of beautiful woman who makes the world stop and stare but she is paying a price for the illusion of perfection. New to town, single mom Jane is so young that another mother mistakes her for a nanny. She comes with a mysterious past and a sadness beyond her years. These three women are at different crossroads, but they will all wind up in the same shocking place. 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. From the Trade Paperback edition.
Big Little Lies
I loved listening to the Husband’s Secret, but this book is a huge disappointment because of the reader. Her accent is horrible, and I sometimes can’t understand what she is saying. I quit after a few chapters.
I almost didn't buy this due to several negative reviews about the narration and story line. So glad I didn't listen! This was a great story and the narration was awesome. I think she depicted the characters perfectly.
Annoying reader but great story
Loved the story but the reader's voice is really shrill at times. Sometimes her voice gets so high and pitchy that she squeaks or screams or some other annoying sound. I found myself turning the volume down because I couldn't tolerate the voice she used for Madeline or the children at full volume. I still loved the book and really recommend it... I listened to it in my car and often found myself just sitting there listening even after arriving at my destination. So, while the reader got on my nerves, I never thought of finishing the rest of the book in hard copy. So, I guess that means I still recommend the audio book.
