    1. Sharon has always been beautiful but unfortunately she hasn't been a good judge of character. After a life time of betrayal and abuse at the hands of men Sharon snaps. Living in Vegas and using the stage name Starr Bright, Sharon is an exotic dancer who holds out hope until a man she spends the night with rapes and beats her after she tries to steal his wallet in the morning before sneaking away. Sharon snaps and murders him and begins her spree of killing men as she travels through the country. [...]


    2. sometimes it is hard to say no, and sometimes when i love an author, especially an author i've read for much of my life, especially an author whose themes fascinate me, i start to think of them as a part of myself, i start to think of them as that part in which i can see the flaws but can still forgive all of them, it is hard to say no to them, it is hard not to see quality in even their weakest efforts; and so it is with Joyce Carol Oates, and so it is with her pseudonym Rosamond Smith: Oates b [...]


    3. "She wasn't a girl for the harsh overexposed hours of morning or afternoon in the desert, her nocturnal soul best roused at twilight when neon lights flashed and pulsed into life."ok first of all the blurb gives WAY TOO MUCH AWAY so don't read that shit. i've been meaning to read a book by joyce carol oates for nine centuries so of course i do the sensible thing and read an obscure one by a pseudonym with a mediocre average rating rather than her most popular ones. (yeah, i don't understand my b [...]


    4. I understand the Rosamond Smith / Joyce Carol Oates books often have something to do with twins. I don’t know why. But there are twins inStarr Bright Will Be With You Soon. I often read in reviews about people liking or disliking characters in a book but I don’t very often have that experience. So I was surprised to find myself really disliking the evil twin and having the dislike increase as the book moved along. I tried to give her extra credit for being differently abled but couldn’t qu [...]



    5. Hey, I know this is by no means great literature, but for what it was (a pulp style thriller)it certainly achieved it objective and was an enjoyable read. I think many people have rated it lower than it deserves because it was written by Joyce Carol Oates, and while it certainly isn't one of her best novels, it still hits it's mark. This is JCO having fun with the trashy genre and not having to live up to her reputation!


    6. After reading her most recent release (DIS MEME BER), I had to get some more of Joyce Carol Oates' books. I came across STARR BRIGHT WILL BE WITH YOU SOON and it immediately piqued my interest. A female serial killer, the classic good twin vs bad twin, what's not to like?We follow Sharon. Sharon is beautiful but has an awful history with men. She moved out to Las Vegas and went by the name Starr Bright as an exotic dancer. One night, after she is caught trying to steal his wallet, the man she sp [...]


    7. I hesitate to write this because I don't like to leave negative reviews for authors. I know how hard it is to write a book, and this author has been writing for long time. I liked this story but its execution I didn't enjoy. I suspect Oates had garnered some attention by the time this was published, and perhaps she'd stopped taking the advice of her editor(s) by that point. The writing is hard to read. I don't want to spend time going over and over sentences to figure out their meaning. The plac [...]




    8. actual author Joyce Carol OatesThe root of this novel’s theme is good twin / bad twin. Rose of Sharon and Lily of the Valley are twin sisters with a reverend father and the notable Bible passages are infused throughout the novel. Lily is the good one (pure white like the flower) and Sharon aka Starr Bright is the bad one (red roses equaling blood). Approaching her late 30’s, Sharon’s modeling and dancing career have ended. Her glamorous life big city life is a past memory. She is now on a [...]


    9. When I started this book I was under the impression that it had been inspired by Aileen Wuornos and, for a moment, I was just a bit disappointed when Rose of Sharon/Starr Bright/Sherrill turned out to be a different sort of customer than Aileen was. Our protagonist is wounded young woman in the body of a middle-aged former model, now stripper who has been "run to earth" by God and believes herself to be, in fact, the very hand of God. She's on a cross-country killing spree and she must end it in [...]


    10. Star bright will be with you soon was a confusing but intriguing tale. There was plenty of moments where I was wondering what will be happening next but feeling disappointed when I actually found out what was happening. Rosamond Smith a.k.a. Joyce Carol Oates takes you want an interesting tale of two twin sisters one having a normal suburban life the other one being a stripper/serial killer. Though the description of the book may have you believe it is a murder mystery you know who the murderer [...]


    11. HATED the ending just didn't fit with the story, at least as i was reading it sometimes JCO seems to write too formulaic, like she writes what is expected as opposed to what she wants to write she is talented, does dread and creepy and emotional and urgent and sad and powerful extremelt well, but at times it seems to me she lacks authenticity or maybe lacks somehting else this could have been different and, in my mind, better


    12. Written by Joyce Carol Oates under a pseudonym, this book is arch and a fun read. It's the good story that felt missing from Wonderland which I also recently read.


    13. This was a weird book. Two pet peeves of mine are bad dialogue and unnecessary quotation marks, and this book has both. It's also just strange. Not my favorite.
