    1. Joyce Carol Oates did not succeed in writing under another name without being caught. Her husband’s name is Raymond Smith so we see where she was coming from. Rosamond Smith wrote eight books in her career including this one. I read somewhere she had a thing about twins in these books.Here is an essay on pseudonyms by JCO who used several of them. usfca/jco/pseudonyms/The one paragraph descriptions of people in this book are wonderful. But I keep wondering: Does this sound like JCO? I just hav [...]



    2. Ce n'était clairement pas le meilleur de Joyce Carol Oates. J'ai été déçue par les personnages clichés, la lenteur de l'action et les "punchs" légèrement prévisibles. J'ai trouvé ma lecture longue, et par bouts même endormante.


    3. Loved the colorful characters, contrasts, & impending danger throughout. Couldn't put the book down & read it in one day. Joyce Carol Oates is simply a master.



    4. in Mann in Terence Greenes Position würde doch keinen Ruf als Geschworener (Laienrichter) in einem Gerichtsverfahren annehmen, meinte seine Frau Phyllis, als sie von der Einladung erfuhr. Terence sei für dieses Ehrenamt sowieso nicht durchschnittlich genug und werde sicher von der Verteidigung abgelehnt. Was Terence genau arbeitet in seiner wichtigen Position in einer Stiftung wissen wir noch nicht. Terence jedenfalls ist die neue Verpflichtung ein willkommener Grund, um vor vermüllten Keller [...]


    5. I can't decide what I think of this one. I can't say I liked it, but I was compelled to keep purging through it so I could get my questions answered and confirmation of what I suspected to happen. I was hoping to get a little more grit and grime with this too. But, it was sadly lacking in suspense and sexual description. I feel I kept waiting for some big climax that never came. I finished it but have no idea how especially because I could not stand the male lead. I was disgusted by his weak cha [...]


    6. Well, I found the topic of a man moving away from his marriage to fall in love with a younger, more wild and exotic woman just simple. Simple man, simple book, and would have preferred to save the time and apply it to cleaning my bathroom.
