Not great, but OK story, well read

I bought this as a bargain book and as such was OK. The reader was excellent, really differentiating the characters by using varying tones of voice and accents. There were certain similarities to Fay Weldon's style of book, but I kept feeling how much better the writing would have been had the latter been the author. Asher's style verges on being cliched and the characters are not really realistic, but I suppose it was intended that the main character, Elenor, be a nasty creation and her rival, Barbara, be pathetically wet. It would have been a better novel if the contrast between the two women had not been so simplistic.

Not what you might expect ...

A real surprise. My normal diet is suspense, thriller, intrigue, books that catch my imagination.
This is that kind of story. The reader uses phrasing, pausing and perfect inflection, that gets your anticipation 'taste bugs' into action. At one point you may have a picture of the story board, but don't be fooled! It's not that predictable and it's a very satisfying tale. Enjoy the characters and the empathetic emotions you might find that it evokes.
