As far as I'm concerned, between this and The Night Of, HBO has the perfect algorithm for constructing a near-perfect miniseries. I started reading the book and just could not get into it, but from the first episode of this I was completely enthralled. This is one of the most binge worthy things I've seen since Stranger Things.

With all of the buzz around this HBO limited series, my expectations may have been too high. It is worth seeing at least once for the incredible cast. For me, it felt a lot like a soap opera, and I didn't think the plot had much forward momentum until the end. It dragged. I have not read the adult fiction book of the same title on which it was based. While you wait for Big Little Lies (there is currently a long waiting list at Hennepin County Library), you might want to consider watching season 1 of Broadchurch. Like Big Little Lies, Broadchurch is focused on a murder investigation in a coastal community, but I think it is a much better whodunit with more complex characters and better character development and pacing. Big Little Lies is for mature audiences and contains violence, sex, profanity and drug use.

I really enjoyed the book and read it again before I watched the series. For the most part, they did a really good job sticking to the book. They kept the eyewitnesses which was one of the reasons I liked the book so much. It added humor to the story. An affair that didn't happen in the book was thrown into the storyline that wasn't necessary. I thought it took away from the story. There is enough going on that the affair didn't need to be added. The acting was good and the right stars were hired. Their chemistry was really good. For some reason, I just felt a little disappointed from how much I enjoyed the book. It's still worth watching.

The show was great! At times it got a little too soap opera for me but I was able to look pass that.

The first couple of episodes are a bit slow but once you get to the third one, you're hooked and you are right along with the characters, discovering all their "hidden secrets" missteps and big, little lies.

My least favorite character had to have been Madeline(played by Reese Witherspoon), she just came across as a really unlikeable woman on the show.
