    "Ali's Opinion"
    Where does The Life and Loves of a She-Devil rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Loved this mini-series when it came out years ago and was definitely pleased to know the series was true to the book. Listened to it twice already!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Life and Loves of a She-Devil?

    Ruth's transformation


    What does Patricia Hodge bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The voice inflections were right on


    Who was the most memorable character of The Life and Loves of a She-Devil and why?

    Obviously it was Ruth the she- devil. None of us really knows the power inside of us until it is forced out of us

    "A dark wonderful and witty tale of transformation"

    A downtrodden and meek giantess finds her view of herself and of the world turned on its head by a chance insult from her husband. She discovers that far from being a mere victim of the inequalities of the world and her husband's infidelities she is in fact a She-devil.

    And She-Devils are capable of great deeds and can transform not only themselves but the world around them.



    With glorious machinations and delightful wickedness the story is a joyful tale of revenge and one I have never grown sick of.



    Despite taking the role of Ruth's nemesis in the TV adaptation Patricia Hodge makes a wonderful She-Devil and her reading of the book is perfect. The only negative is that it is not unabridged. However it is still a wonderful listen.
