message 1: by Lee (new) - rated it 4 stars

Lee | 357 comments Back in July 2014 I read this Liane Moriarty book its called Little lies,
it was really popular here in the UK and looked like this





Looking through the new books available to pre-order July 2015 I spot
this book below called Big Little Lies, I think it must be a new book
some kind of second part to the previous book .The titles different
and the cover. But no it seems they are the same book.
The new edition has a new title and cover. I get the
cover change but the title change ? Its very misleading.

It's bad enough with new covers, I've sometimes almost been caught out and luckily GR has saved me. But a new name as well, I might have clicked that button before realising :(

D.G. | 2752 comments I think Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty is the US title and cover. I've seen that book for ages so I know it's not new.

How is it available in the UK now, I wonder? Because you're right, it makes it seem like a sequel.

Well that is what I did, as it was a new book to pre-order
just finished re-reading Little Lies and thinking this is
very much a beginning to end story. Its what made me look
on here and realise things were not quite as they seemed.

Your right, someone being crafty and trying to pull
a fast one.

Perhaps they thought the title & book cover looked better
than the UK one, but they are pushing this as a new book,
which is silly because it was a best seller over here.
I could understand this if the book had failed on its
first release and they were trying a new promotional
angle, but its not going to take long for people to
realise its not what they think it is.

Debbie's Spurts (D.A.) | 1904 comments That particular title difference is misleading.

It's not unusual for U.K. and U.S. book titles (and even series titles) to be different.

U.K. title: Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone
U.S. title: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
