20 Big Differences Between Big Little Lies: The Show and The Book It’s Based On
Jane & Celeste Have A Deeper Friendship
The Big Little Lies HBO series prioritizes the relationship between Madeline and Jane to the detriment of Celeste and Jane’s relationship in the novels. Madeline and Jane are still given their moments in the source material, but Celeste also forges a deep bond with the young mother centered around fitness walks (or, on the television series, picturesque runs on the beach). Jane still idolizes Celeste (as we all do), but she also opens up to the seemingly-perfect big sister figure in a way that was never replicated on the show.
