Revenge of the Middle Aged Woman

revenge_middle_aged_woman.jpgNo, not me. This is a book we're reading for our September book club. I'm not sure where the suggestion came from, ah yes, it came from this list from another book club, supplied by Pam. Okay, I'm glad I didn't select it because it's just not my cup of tea.

And because it's not my cup of tea, I powered through it yesterday so I could move on to other books (or return to Sherlock Holmes) instead.

It's the story of yes, a middle-aged woman who, you guessed it, is left by her middle-aged husband for a younger woman. To say more than that would be to give too much away and I don't want to ruin it for the rest of the club but honestly, there really isn't much more to divulge. I found the story about as cliche as they come and kept waiting for something to happen. I guess if I had read the review from Publishers Weekly on the Amazon site, I would have known all this before I started reading and probably could have skipped reading it in its entirety.

So if you want to read something about the fragility of marriage, that you've probably read, seen on TV or perhaps been even personally exposed to before, go for it. Otherwise, you may want to find something better to do with your time, like scraping a chalk board with your nails.

Oh, and for those of you in the club, here are the discussion questions. I'll update our site with them next week.

jane:

Guess I won't read it--not that I had ever heard of it. Doesn't sound like my kind of book. I am curious, though, about Sherlock Holmes. May have to try him.

Lisa:

I was planning on reading it on vacation, which I'll still do. But I'll plan on reading other things as well. Glad there is a large selection on my Kindle.
