Pompous and self absorbed. This novel takes itself far too seriously. The characters are boring and the situation unconvincing.. Made it to the end through gritted teeth.

This book was, for me anyway, an absolute masterpiece, one that left me shaking when I had finished reading it. Incredibly original, beautifully written, it is both a page-turned and a meditation on life, love, art, friendship, family. I can't recommend it highly enough.

I found this an 'O.K.' book. A little shallow in parts and maybe implausible, but you could read to the end and not abandon it.

I enjoyed the book from the start and read it in a few days when on holiday but I was bitterly disappointed by the ending.

It was not what I expected from C. Messud, the characters were not well defined.and the plot was a little feeble.

I was disappointed - not really my kind of read, however I did read to the end so it can't have been too bad!

Brilliant! A totally compelling book that I read in almost one sitting and now have to read a second time.

In different degrees we all have conversations in our heads,loves untold, secrets. This book cleverly revealed a dark obsession that becomes a woman's life which overtakes her as she has so little meaning in her own mundane life. The ultimate betrayal is shocking but flawed as a film makers know that legally sirens could not do that. A release form is required before money can be made from any image,but an interesting idea all the same

The writing was good and the character of the "Woman" very believable. However, overall the book was depressing and not life-affirming - a lot about "art" that didn't inspire and unpleasant question marks over her relationship with the family, in which she ended up the victim.
