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.

Fascinatingly detailed insight into life

Would you consider the audio edition of Little Lies to be better than the print version?

I can't comment as I have not read the print version.

What other book might you compare Little Lies to, and why?

I have read one other book by Liane Moriarty and listened to one too so I have to compare Little Lies to these as they are all very detailed about lives of ordinary people in Australian towns.

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

The authentic accent and pronunciation of place names.

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

No, I always listen in three daily instalments, my journey to and from work in the car and a long dog walk, a total of about two hours per day which is enough for me as I always have another book on the go on my Kindle.

Any additional comments?

I thoroughly enjoyed this insight into life as a kindergarten parent in Australia, thank goodness my own experience was less eventful!

Should be 4.5 Stars - Fantastic Surprise

My Wife recommended this without having read it herself. Honestly I started of thinking this was a big mistake. This is a book for women about women. Male characters are very much in second place and I was close to giving in.
That was until about 20% in and then I became addicted and it was 5 star all the way. The Story of middle class families in small town Australia where the incident takes place is simply brilliant. Slow and atmospheric it just hooks you in and you need to know more.
Not just a who done it but also a to whom.
Frighteningly I think I know all the Characters in this book and they all live in my home town in Scotland. That is why this book is so good. You will know the characters
Love this book Thank you

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.
