Little Black Lies is a character driven story of a friendship destroyed by a tragic loss caused by one character’s negligence resulting in overwhelming grief, guilt, anger, and revenge. The story is written in three parts, told by three suffering and lost characters explaining their course of events which occurred over six days. I love how this gave me understanding from each of their own perspectives of their pain and suffering, past and present. The bit of history of the war, the good description of the island, and the reality of nature of the whales all added to the story.
I thought this to be a clever, unpredictable and interesting story with a brilliant ending.
