Customer Review

on 8 November 2004
This book charts the lives of five women, who form a reading group and call themselves, 'Angry Housewives Eating Bon Bons'. Through this group solid, lasting friendships are formed which continue to grow stronger as their lives unravel through the decades. It's a book bursting with emotions; happiness and joy are juxtaposed with pain and tragedy but the characters in this book are strong, courageous women who are all survivors and I admired them greatly.
From the late 60's to the present day the reader observes their difficulties, desires and delights, all greatly enhanced by Landvik's wonderfully warm writing. Her unique style and vivid imagery burst from the pages, making this book a pleasure to read; (..."Autumn, beautiful rusty gold and maroon autumn was a matron in tweeds and sensible shoes who begged you to come outside and take a walk with her whilst listening to her recite Shakespeare and Byron and Shelley...")
Overall, this was a hugely enjoyable book about the powerful bond of friendship. Read it, identify and emphathise with the characters and I can guarantee you will not be disappointed.
