FROM THE PUBLISHER
Nora Buckley's worst nightmare has just come true. After years of being a devoted, dutiful housewife, she's found out her husband is leaving her for a younger woman. Then her friends let her in on their delicious and dirty little secret. It's called The Channel, and it lets every woman unleash passions beyond her wildest dreams. Suddenly Nora is living out her most intimate and sensuous fantasies-and before long, she realizes she can have everything she ever wanted.

An interested premise...and an interesting way to get even. One critic referred to The Channel as "mysterious interactive service for sex-starved women." While Nora has been deprived throughout her marriage by her husband, this is not about "sex-starved" women...it is about each of us having our fantasies and having an opportunity to explore them. Apparently, in the "real world" women aren't allowed to have fantasies...but that's not true in this book!

7 out of 10

Hmmm.... Pretty good, fast, and fun, if a little shallow. I kept waiting for the story to take a strong sci-fi turn or for things to get a little more traditionally romancey and flesh out some of the characters a bit more. And it turned out neither was the case! I was willing to go along with the way things turned out, though, and enjoyed the fact that the main characters were real adults -- albeit in very unreal situations at times! The book leaves a lot of unanswered questions in terms of world-building and plot if you're interested in anything but surface stuff. (Like, how'd the boys get involved then? Does this exist somehow for men? Is that why they're all going to bed early? If it exists all over, then how does anything on the planet get accomplished?!!)

Anyhoo, I zipped right through this, and next it's off to Camis as part of a swap.

A quick read and a fun idea - if a little far-fetched!

I think I have a new home for this, so it will hopefully have a new reader shortly.

Oooops! I opened the parcel! Didn't see a note not to open, but I should have known, since I new it was from Camis and I wasn't expecting anything from her *blush*

Anyway, I'm sure I will love the book!
