9/10 - Really good. I was liking it, and then I got to the last 70 pages and I was loving it. I was really surprised by the ending. I thought she was headed in one direction and I was going to be okay with that, but then she went in a totally different direction which I thought was so much better and different. I wish I could elaborate, but don't want to spoil it for those who want to read this book.

3/10 - Unfortunately, the best part of this book is the title. With a title like that, I'm expecting something witty, humorous. This is actually not a novel, but really a collection of 3 short stories, which in my opinion reads like it was written by a high schooler of modest talent. If you're interested it's only 105 pages long and takes no time to read, but I don't know if you'd want to waste the money.

7/10 - I don't get Margaret Atwood. I always finish her books feeling like she's trying to impart some pearl of wisdom to me, but I'm too dense to understand it. I like her writing well enough, I just don't get it. I know this will sorely dissappoint Denise, as she is an avid Atwood fan.

7/10 - A female friendship book along the lines of Angry Housewives Eating Bon Bons, although I liked that one better. I felt like this one lacked depth, and I didn't really care for the ending. It was an okay book, and I liked the romantic relationships that were sprinkled through out the book. I just didn't feel like the writer really fleshed out the relationships within the club.
