This is not a book for everyone, but its admirers are vigorously enthusiastic.
For example: Rhoda Koenig in New York Magazine, who calls it "...a novel of blazingly hot revenge, one that amply illustrates the saying about heaven having no rage like love turned to hate, nor hell a fury like a woman scorned."
Or Rosalyn Drexler, who said on the front page of The New York Times Book Review, "It affords a scintillating, mindboggling, vicarious thrill for any reader who has ever fantasized dishing out retribution for one wrong or another."

YES. It is a very entertaining dark comedy with some incredibly shocking elements.
She captured the darkness of this story with an almost tongue-in-cheek quality.
Her tone was perfect and her character voices were incredibly believable. She made me laugh and cringe at the same time.
Bobbo. And I would poison his food! LOL.
This was made into a movie with Meryl Streep. It is a very unique book.
And Gemma Dawson brought the story to life in a whole new way. She is one of my favorite narrators.
