Wow! I cant find the words to describe this incredible book! I loved it! Could not put it down. Celeste Ng is an outstanding, talented writer! Her words flow like poetry. Every character is so well defined, I felt as though I was right there with each and every one, I cant stop thinking of them and, actually miss them. Highly recommend this amazing, beautiful book!!! I am anxiously waiting for her next gem of a book. Thank you Celeste !! Please write another winner soon!!!

I found the first part of this book having a little too stereotypical Look at a upper. Middle class family. Second half the story deepened and became more about motherhood and the relationships. Then I liked it. The writing was good although sometimes the back and forth of the settings and characters needed a quick reread. I finished the book with something to think about which I liked very much. This would be a good book for a ladies book club.

So many cultural and value based discussions will happen when groups gather to discuss this book. Complex characters living seemingly simple lives. All is not what it seems.

This is a beautiful and powerful story. Incredibly well conceived and well told. Motherhood and entitlement

Quick read! It's a story about 2 families entwined. One mother, Mrs. Richardson who is selfish and the other, Mia who is compassionate. It's tragic how it ends but bittersweet as well. The title describes it perfectly.

Photography artist Mia Warren moves to Shaker Heights, OH, bringing a new element into the staunchly middle-class, by the rules neighborhood, changing dynamics of two families, her own as a single mom, and her landlady Elena Richardson's properly planned one as third generation Shaker Heights. Into this volatile blend is thrown teenage hormones, a King Solomon dilemma, and outside the box thinkers, culminating in "something's gotta give." Wisdom comes from unlikely sources. Throwing an artist into the mainstream never goes as planned. This is a brilliant expose of the bubbles in which we live, what happens when someone pops it and we must acknowledge that our life may not be what it seems. I love how Ng shows the reader the different perspectives of the characters, especially the Richardson's youngest daughter's idea that her mother likes her least, because she's harder on her, when the reality is that her mother has feared for her life since she was born prematurely. Ng shows how easily failing to communicate feelings can lead to harsh presumptions. Her characters remain true to themselves throughout, and although there are lessons to be learned, there's no "moral of the story" here, leaving a satisfying open ending. Readers of Lian Moriarty may like this novel. If you love complex characters that build tension through miscommunication, strong feelings, and searching for themselves, you will like this book.

Insightful read about relationships , motherhood , and so much more. It was slow to get me hooked. But once it did, I was all in.

3.5 Stars....my true rating. I've been putting off writing my review...and rethinking my rating on LITTLE FIRES EVERYWHERE because it just didn't blow me away like it did so many others, and I really wanted time to think about it.....What am I missing? It's just kind of a soap opera really, and nothing we haven't heard before. One family with teens who make mistakes (one big one) and a busy-body mother who thinks she's better than everybody. Another mother who makes a big mistake because of hopelessness...(yes, very sad) Two well-to-do couples who long to have a child....and another mother who continually drags her daughter around the country running from her past. Ok, I admit Mia and Pearl's story was a good one....the best of the novel actually....but overall the whole shebang was just a bit better than average for me...and honestly...forgettable. ...In THE FIRST HALF we meet some of the characters....the Richardson family, their 4 children, a few of their teen friends plus Mia and daughter Pearl who have just moved to town. ...AND...I do know I'm in a MAJOR minority here, but whew! I was pretty much bored throughout a good portion up to this point. I felt like I kept reading and reading without making any progress in the lives of the young adults, but as I said, that was just in THE FIRST HALF. ...In THE SECOND HALF, the plot thickens and I did become more engaged. We meet a few more characters and discover secrets...learn more about Mia's past, her family, her education, her love of photography as well as her deep love and devotion for her brother Warren and daughter Pearl. We also meet the McCullough's and Ryan's who long to start a family, and a struggling immigrant mother who makes a heartbreaking decision. No doubt here, Celeste Ng is a gifted writer. Her debut offering EVERYTHING I NEVER TOLD YOU is still my favorite of her novels. LITTLE FIRES EVERYWHERE pretty much fit into the average plus category (for me). I know, I know.....it won the 2017 Goodread's Best Fiction Award (inching out my personal favorite BEARTOWN) but nonetheless, my congratulations to a talented author...really! Ok, whew! I got that off my chest!

"Sometimes you need to scorch everything to the ground, and start over. After the burning, the soil is richer, and new things can grow. People are like that, too. They start over. They find a way." This book is not a faced paced, pulse pounding, action packed book, yet it packs a gut wrenching punch through each chapter. A great reminder that things are not always as they seem and some secrets are better left buried. I read Everything I Never Told You last year, another novel by Celeste Ng, and I had grown to dislike the way the book navigated through the past and present stories. However, I didn't find any of that in Little Fires Everywhere. Each chapter wove the past and present together nicely which helped me understand the characters a little bit more as well as build up the story.

Slow start with introduction of characters to get to the main point. While I appreciate the message of a mother's love, I felt the story line dragged to get to the best part of the novel which was towards the end. I enjoyed the message and ending but it didn't wow me as other ratings have commented.
