    What a wild ride, this is a playground you want to avoid taking your children to You know how you feel when you get off one of those playground merry go rounds A little shook, a little queasy, a little unstable, A little flustered, that s how I felt after reading this book Three couples Meat and form a fast friendship Their children all get along so well and this leads to barbecues, dinners, and even vacations together All three

    Three families were brought together by a tutoring program for dyslexic children There were 6 children aged 3 to 13 and 3 sets of neglectful parents One child went missing and then a second child went missing Despite the fact that the culprit was obvious from the beginning, this was still an entertaining domestic suspense novel It never veered too far into the territory of women s fiction The characters were self involved twits, but t

    Oh what a tangled web of secrets are woven among three couples brought together by their kids, but held together by their actions Until something shocking occurs This is quite a book A character driven novel of suspense that will suck you right in I loved the title for this book, The Playground, because it is the sort of metaphor that worked on many levels And no, it isn t a physical playground the way you would think of it But what sort o

    AH HA HA HA I KNEW IT points finger and then shakes fist What an interesting web you weave, Shemilt The synopsis definitely says best when it comes to Big Little Lies feels because those are definitely all there These parents are the worst I mean, they don t mean to be but they re so busy dealing with their own issues to really pay attention to their children Then again, what s really right or wrong every one has a different parenting technique

    There s a lot of things I m not sure about in The Playground I m not sure if there s really a plot line for the first half of the book The characters, adults and children both, just go in circles around each other, manipulating and contriving I m not really sure what the title has to do with the book unless it s a metaphor, since the playground built for the youngest child barely makes an appearance I m not sure if I m supposed to like any of the charact

    Three families lives become increasingly intertwined when they meet during tutoring sessions for their children Throughout the summer and into the fall, the adults becomeandpreoccupied with each other, leaving the kids to amuse themselves But what exactly are the kids up to This was a somewhat dark and twisted story that was the quick read that I needed after a couple of heavier reads I d figured out the mystery early on, but that didn t detract from my enjoy

    Excellent suspense story of what happens when a couple grows apart and become so wrapped up in their separate, secret lives, that their children go missing right under their noses, because neither husband or wife is paying attention to what s really going on Highly recommended, especially for fans of Liane Moriarty.

    Started off with a Big Little Lies vibe, but then the plot turned boring and clumsy The characters are totally unlikable and I figured out who the evil is from the first 20 pages And not because I put together some amazingly difficult clues, but because it was blatantly obvious Disappointing ending also.
