All of the mini stories not only filled in many of the details between previous novels, but provided a heartwarming end to lives spanning decades. While you know there is bound to be hardships within the realities of the main characters, this provides a necessary end to wrap up all of the main story lines.
I love that in this novel John Sharian returns to using Jaenelle's voice without the lilting accent that I didn't like in a few of the previous novels.
I loved this book. Liane Moriarty never disappoints when delivering a seamless story that resonates with so many people. She talks about normal people with "normal" lives thrown into circumstances that always seem just a hop, skip, and a jump away from where you own life could end up. And then she throws in a twist. Her story then looks at a behind the scenes view of unfortunate events that test the best and worst of everyday humans. Little Big Lies is no different. Loved that just a couple lies here and there in different adult relationships can lead to such a cataclysmic event at the trivia night where all the adults are just a little too tipsy and the gloves come off.
I loved the slight twists at the end of the book. Who died at the trivia night??!! What lead to it? And I loved the organization leading up to the trivia night with the police inetrrogations from different parents at the school. Seemed realistic.
Just like the other Liane Moriarty books!
Madeline would be a great dinner guest- such a hoot! And there would definitely be some wine involved!
I love the way Jennifer Ikeda brings the book to life. So many accents and so many distinct characters- all performed wonderfully. One of my favorite audiobook series, and this served as a perfect conclusion.
I've read a lot of series in my life, and usually the conclusion is always a little lack luster, or lets the readers down in some way. This book, however, seemed to fulfill all my wishes for the story line and characters while still leaving a few things to the readers imagination so as to not try and tidy up every little detail and force the conclusion of the book. I am so happy with this series.
In order for this book and series to receive better ratings the author would actually need to provide a plot. No plot and terrible writing do not provide for a good base for a good audible listen.
The lack of plot was originally disappointing. Then hearing "oh my" once every 10 seconds did not help either. Overall, the lack of creative writing and dialogue was boring and hard to listen to, and the voice of the reader made the characters seem immature and flat. Basically this book is not something you want to invest in to listen to. I struggled to get through the audiobook, and only finished since I had invested credits in these buys. The main character Anastasia is weak and a pushover, and because the story is written so poorly I couldn't even get into the main male character Christian Grey. Simply put this story is a bunch of S&M scenes tied together with bad dialogue and no major plot line.
The performance could have been made better by a more dynamic reader and someone who could at times convey maturity in her voice.
No. It is one of the worst books of my generation. I've read many romance novels and this is by far the worst.
Do not buy. Not all its cracked up to be. And if you do want to check it out- buy the book because the audio book presentation makes it even worse.
I believe the performance with different voices and the accent amplified the already magnificent story.
Both Celia and Marco were portrayed amazingly by the narrator and I feel like he captured their personalities quite well.
Let the games begin...
