Make sure the kids aren’t around! Just because you’re a grown-up doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the art of the children’s bedtime story. Nick Offerman presents this collection of 15 short stories written in the style of a classic kid’s tale, but with a decidedly dark and adult approach.

Francine the Frog story was ok, but the second story was terrible.

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.

I have read several Liane Moriarty novels and this one is the best ever!!
It covers numerous current issues women experience.... and is funny, gritty and surprising all the way through.

By the end of the book I felt like Celeste, Madeleine and Jane were MY friends too. Awesome piece of writing.

Three brothers, one death, a fenceline stretching to the horizon. Two brothers meet at the border of their vast cattle properties under the unrelenting sun of outback Queensland. They are at the stockman's grave, a landmark so old, no one can remember who is buried there. But today, the scant shadow it casts was the last hope for their middle brother, Cameron. The Bright family's quiet existence is thrown into grief and anguish. Something had been troubling Cam. Did he lose hope and walk to his death? Because if he didn't, the isolation of the outback leaves few suspects....

I enjoy Jane Harper's novels because they are quintessentially Australian. Her description of life in real out back (this novel) or somewhere just an hour or two from Melbourne (Force of Nature) are just wonderful.

The characters have so much more depth than what is presented on the surface - true for all of us.

Looking forward to Jane Harper's next publication.

I was eager to play this story at every opportunity but just found it hard to believe.
If the bush was as described, the hikers would have been provided with emergency supplies eg flares, first aid supplies...not just "left."
Thankfully I haven't encountered such nasty, uncooperative women.... but then I don't live in a big city like Melbourne.
I enjoyed the side story of Aaron, Carmen and Aaron's father.
Not my favourite Jane Harper, but still a good read.

Loved the story.
Don't like the narrator.
Would prefer an Australian accent - would love to hear the author himself narrate!
Looking forward to the next one!
Also enjoyed the interview with Reilly at the end.
