This book makes no sense if you haven’t read the original Life and Loves of a She Devil and/or seen the TV series starring Julie T. Wallace, Patricia Hodge and Dennis Waterman. Even though I’d done both I found the present book confusing as numerous children, step-children and grandchildren of the main characters are introduced and the narrative jumps about with details of their lives mixed up with visits by Mary Fisher’s ghost, scenes with a very elderly Bobo and the ruminations of the She Devil in her 90th decade, plus the thoughts of other peripheral characters.
There is very little actual story just a miss-mash of words that are often more like a stream of consciousness that allowed the author to go off on self-indulgent verbal riffs of foul-mouthed venom or regurgitate out-of date feminist paranoia.
Half-way through I was getting so bored with the book I started skipping chapters. I would have returned the book had I not got it free in a 2 for 1 offer.
I have enjoyed many of the author’s books so was disappointed that she has produced this tedious book.
