I didn't believe in any of the characters and found their strangely casual behaviour quite baffling.
This is an early work and it shows. However, I don't regret reading it, as I still enjoyed the evocation of New York in the early 1940s. Also, although the book had many faults, at least it wasn't predictable.

The truly bizarre fixation upon strange combinations of expensive food (lobster salad and coffee)? Even more worth reading.
Random insertions of animals used as verbs ("The bus elephanted its way up the street")? OK, you've got me.
The fact that the marble is blue? So blue? So very, very blue? And you're reminded of this pretty much every three paragraphs? Bring this puppy on.
If you're looking for a good mystery, or a good romance, or a good suspenseful romance, you're probably not looking for this book. If you're looking for a snapshot in time for when this was considered the height of luxury and aspiration for housewives everywhere? You're on the right track.
If you're looking for something with incredible dramatic reading potential, have you ever found the right book.
I originally read this book while on a canoe trip in northern Ontario, around the fire in the evenings, out loud, and it is just as delightfully bizarre now as it was 15 years ago. Make your book club read it. Make your friends read it. Read it to them until they run away from you. They'll come back to hear the next chapter, I promise. Oh, and as raciness goes... I think she might touch his hand once. With a bare hand. Don't clutch your pearls too hard!
