Kteba I liked it. What I found most impressive was the dark humor underlying the narrative. It was a delectable story that featured not one likeable character. (Well, except Sheba's son, the one true victim of all of these people's narcissism.) Pretty agile writing, no?
Kate Stjohn Not sure if I liked it or not...it was certainly a different perspective on friendship and so much rang chillingly true...stuck in head...
Jen Targ I liked it. It's written a little bit similar to Lionel Shriver's "We Need to Talk About Kevin".
This answer contains spoilers… (view spoiler)[I liked Barbara's scrutinising observations, I think the main thing is nothing much happened, except for the big exposure. I suddenly realised that Barbara would be responsible for the big reveal. I think the plot could have been a bit more fleshed out somehow. Intelligently written and enjoyable however, though no surprises and sometimes a little unbelievable in patches. Parochial stuffy vocabulary evoking my childhood, nostalgia and shudders at the same time!. (hide spoiler)]
Marlena I thought the book was just ok. But it's probably is a pretty accurate portrayal what happens in this situation.
