The Ballymena Today book club has started! And our first title is going to be Big Little Lies. This is the perfect title to kick us off. I read it last year and it brought up so many issues and provoked discussions that went on and on and on. Big Little Lies is a thriller by Laine Moriarty set in a well to do Australian neighbourhood and centres around a kindergarten where parents and children clash in various situations.
Big Little Lies is Moriarty’s seventh novel and it displays a bewildering mixture of humour and hard hitting subjects like rape, domestic violence and bullying. It features a variety of characters, heroes and villains and, although the subject matter was sometimes tough going, I couldn’t put it down.
In 2017 Big Little Lies was developed into a successful television series set in California starring Reece Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman. But if you have watched the television series I think that you should still read the book as it fleshes the characters out more fully and there are certain different which are really interesting to compare.
So there is your first challenge. Lets read this together and please stay tuned to Ballymena.Today because we will be writing articles and blog post relating to the themes and storylines in the book.
