A murder. Arguing moms. Bully kids. School scandal. This is what to expect in Big Little Lies, a novel written by Liane Moriarty five (5) years ago in July 2014. As mentioned in my original book review, Big Little Lies was a drag to read. But the trailer for TV series showed an all-star cast. I had to try, right?
Thank goodness I did! Very rarely is the movie/television adaptation better than the book. But directors, producers and the cast are doing an outstanding job with Big Little Lies. Skip the book but tune in to the HBO series. You will indeed be sucked in.
