    1. Dorothea works at a nonprofit institution in Boston and is primed to take her boss's place when he retires. One of the board members however wants his nephew to take the position and starts a campaign against Dorothea, using her 'feminist tenancies' as a reason to not promote her. Meanwhile she continues on with her long time affair with a married friend whose wife's emotion problems and substance abuse continues to worsen. When Colin comes into the picture however all of Dorothea's problems sta [...]


    2. joyce carol oates writing as rosamond smith is a writer of thrillers, often ones concerned with dualities within human nature. it is an interesting side project for an amazing writer. in Soul/Mate, she seems rather less concerned with dualities and more concerned with a kind of pastiche of the romantic thriller, complete with various overblown situations, scarcely believable characters, and almost purple prose. it is an interesting book because oates is an interesting writer; it is also rather o [...]


    3. Colin Asch had in fact always relied upon the world’s stupidity as a factor in his own talent. Amid a herd of slow-witted bovine beasts he was a leopard capable of running at speeds up to seventy-five miles an hour- a flash of burnished flaming lighta my blog bookstalkerblog.wordpress/Dorothea Deverell, a New England art historian, goes about her days as a widow, working in a Boston Museum. She has a lover, if not entirely hers to keep, and is content to simply live her life as is. Little does [...]


    4. Interesting bookMs Oates is my favorite author of literary fiction. ALL her books are great. That said, this one is less great than most. Several times while reading I'd be blindsided by a particularly creative apt and articulate phrase. Ms Oates has always had that effect on me. More often than not I get wrapped up in her reality and get lost in time and space. However, that did not happen in this book. For some reason, I have less empathy and/or understanding of her main character-for all of t [...]


    5. HorribleCouldn't wait till it was over. Bad characters, no suspense. Boring as hell. Wasn't worth the money. Don't recommend. Ugh.


    6. Dorothea ist seit Jahren verwitwet. Sie wird ab und zu von befreundeten Paaren mit dem leicht durchschaubaren Ziel eingeladen, sie einem möglichen Partner vorzustellen und ihren Kampf gegen die Einsamkeit endlich zu beenden. Auch die Weidmanns fühlen sich verpflichtet, Dorotheas Glück auf die Sprünge zu helfen. Dorotheas verstorbener Mann und Martin Weidmann kannten sich schon seit ihrer Studentenzeit. Warum Paare Singles einladen, hat Dorothea nie verstanden. Sie ahnt, dass diese Einladung [...]


    7. 3 1/2, con una clasificación visible de tres estrellas, en lugar de cuatro, por la sencilla razón de que el final me ha resultado un tanto brusco y precipitado, aunque probablemente la historia no podría terminar de otra forma. En cualquier caso, esta "Alma Cómplice" es una novela de género negro, centrada en el aspecto psicológico, con personajes cautivadores y muy bien escrita.No obstante, y como ya digo, al protagonista se le ve venir, especialmente por su comportamiento bipolar, que no [...]


    8. J’avais adoré Les chutes du même auteur, c’est donc avec plein d’espoir que j’ai entamé la lecture du sourire de l’ange. Veuve et maîtresse d’un homme marié, Dorothea Deverell fait la connaissance d’un jeune homme qui parvient à se faire apprécier de la plupart des gens, usant de son physique et de son charme naturel. La jeune femme découvrira pourtant la face obscure de Colin, redoutable psychopathe. Un thriller sans enquêteur ni détective, avec des personnages fouillés [...]
