I love this book!
Is pretty well written, the plot is really interesting and the characters are pretty well defined. Is definitely about domestic violence and sexual assault but it also has a dramatic and funny scenario.
I like that it was a women perspective, and a mothers perspective.
I think is important to take away the funny parts and be objective with the real intention on the book, that it should be talk about the violence that a lot of woman suffer.
So, the book is about 3 women (mainly) and how their life is affected by domestic violence, sexual assault, school bulling, marriage and at the end how much of their suffering they were willing to keep as a secret in order to maintain a status in their society circle.
I got related to the 3 main characters so it is hard for me to pick up a favorite. I have the neurosis of Madelline, I'm a young mother like Jane and I had struggle with a difficult marriage (not violent but still hard to explain) just like Celeste. So I felt that I could understand everyones point of view...
Anyhow, for me is a 5 stars books, you may find its flaws which is fine but I really enjoyed this one!!!
Неплохо. Странные впечатления остаются. Хотелось бы прочитать продолжение.
Мне сложно сказать что-то о сюжете, так как изначально я смотрела сериал, поэтому все «неожиданные повороты» были мне известны
