Review by Krumbs
Read this in high school and it was a bit too adult for me at the time! I remember seeing the movie later--absolutely nothing like it. The movie did make me think about the book and I realized that the women here were more rounded and interesting that I usually find in general fiction.

This is an easy read, but very enjoyable. Three women get burned by their respective husbands...and decide not to take it lying down. Not necessarily a how-to-get-revenge guide, but definitely something I'm sure that runs through everyone's mind when going through a divorce.

I read this book years ago. I was a fan of the movie and thought I'd give the book a go. The book, in my opinion, was leaps and bounds better than the movie. The stories of each character including Cynthia went much deeper than the movie and it is definitely one i have been pushing onto people who enjoyed the movie.
