Publisher's Summary

Originally published as Little Lies.

Pirriwee Public is a beautiful little beachside primary school where children are taught that ‘sharing is caring'. So how has the annual School Trivia Night ended in full-blown riot? Sirens are wailing. People are screaming. The principal is mortified.

And one parent is dead.

Was it a murder, a tragic accident, or just good parents gone bad? As the parents at Pirriwee Public are about to discover, sometimes it’s the little lies that turn out to be the most lethal. Little Lies is a brilliant take on ex-husbands and second wives, mothers and daughters, school-yard scandal, and the dangerous little lies we tell ourselves just to survive.

Please note: This is the same audiobook as Big Little Lies, also available from audible.com

    "Sensitive issues but made me laugh out loud"

    I wouldn't have ever thought I'd love a book about a bunch of Aussie kindergarten Moms but this was amazing. It dealt with serious issues really thoughtfully and also made me laugh out loud. The women in this book are awesome too - not perfect but you love them all the more for it.

    My first Liane Moriarty novel. Sadly none of the others have compared to this one. Great plot twists.

    Story
    "Excellent Narrator"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. It is an interesting enough story, but the narration is excellent.
    The theme of the book is how much of our understanding is based upon appearances instead of reality.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Madeline.


    What about Caroline Lee’s performance did you like?

    She's very talented.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Not especially.


    Any additional comments?

    Very enjoyable.

    "Compelling"

    Compelling story with witty and very recognizable characterization of the usual suspects who people a small town and especially a primary school. Works on many levels and packs a powerful punch.

    At the beginning it can be difficult to segregate the characters, but just keep listening, or make a character map!

    Story
    "Deliciously dark"
    Where does Little Lies rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Fairly high. But I read so many different types of books it's not fair to compare.


    What does Caroline Lee bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She has a real flair for reading Liane's books.


    Any additional comments?

    The book is so dark and deals with so much tragedy yet it's such a celebration of life in many ways. It, as did The Husband's Secret, reminded me so much of Desperate Housewives in its humour and the way women create bonds.

    "Excellent"

    A fantastically narrated story, it grips you until the end. Far more gritty, full or suspense, and hard hitting than the cover suggests. I'd recommend it.

    "I loved this book even more than the TV series"

    Watched the TV series first and enjoyed it enough to want to read the book. So glad I did. Although the action had moved to Australia I felt this made a different experience for me. The novel expanded on the screenplay and explained so much not made clear in the TV series. I would definitely recommend this book.
